Greek Life: they are cool with non-Greeks

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: because my parents make too much money I had to take out additional loans

5 College Junior

Nightlife: Greenville has the best nightlife. There are many bars/clubs, parties, and transportation in this area. ECU provide drunk buses that run to certain off-campus apartments.

3 College Junior

Computers: There are many computer labs across campus. There are two computer labs located in the basement of two of the dorms on-campus. Many students go to the labs to print papers for their classes. These labs allow printing and internet access. Many students take their personal computers to class so they can type what the professor says.

4 College Junior

Academics: My major is Family and Community Services with a minor in Early Intervention. In this program we get to experience many things first hand. It requires a lot of hands on classes followed by an internship. I will get to pick the top three choices of where I want to do my internship and I am guaranteed one of the places.

3 College Junior

Weather: The weather in Greenville is bipolar. It rains a lot and when it does the campus is typically flooded.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many off-campus housing options near this school. The pros of living off campus is being able to cook healthy meals, having our own bedroom, and being able to stay close to our friends. Parking is also a big plus because living on campus visitors can not park on campus during the week. Also visitor hours while staying on campus is up at 2am. Living off-campus makes the college students feel more at home and have freedom.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The transportation that is provided by my school is fairly good. Having a car on campus is helpful for the students who have a job are who do not want to wait for the bus. The bus system is not always on time which often make students late to class. Students who are traveling long distance to attend this college may need to drive their car because of less cost. There is no train station in this town so students traveling by train will have to depart from another town which could be costly due to the transportation they take to get to the station.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Greenville is an excellent place to live. There are many things for college students to do in this town. Nightclubs, bowling allies, movie theaters, shopping center, and recreations are a few things that are available to the people in this town.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very convenient and has many things to get the students involved after classes. The recreation and dining halls are a few things that are in the convenience of students who live on campus.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Greenville has a lot to offer, but always think they could do more.

4 College Junior

Weather: Love the weather although it can some times be unpredictable being so near to the coast. One day it will be hot, the next day freezing. Then sometimes all in the same day it will be clear skys, then 10 minutes later a huge rainstorm. Keeps things interesting, for sure.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Never have had any problems with financial aid.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most places are not walking distance which is a bummer. But ECU does have good bus systems that go to apartment complexes.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of good places to eat and not all at bad prices either.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Really love living on campus. Close to classes and library. Also the campus bus is accessible if you have no car and need to go shopping for practically anything.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are quite a few bars and clubs to choose from. If you are not into that type of scene, there are always things that go on on campus during the weekend like free movies and events.

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors are wonderful and really want you to learn and be excited about the material that they are teaching. The registration process is easy (you do it on your own, online after meeting with your advisor) although some times it is hard to get the class you want if you are not an upperclassman.

The library has many study areas and study rooms with different floors where they enforce you to be quiet.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: The campus police and city police here are very forceful when it comes to drugs and underage drinking. It happens, but isn't very noticeable.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on the campus as well as many different diversity/ethnic groups and organizations that can be joined.

5 College Junior

Computers: There are many computer labs on campus either in general buildings, dorm rooms, departmental buildings, not to mentions the number of computers in the library. Printing at all these locations is free with the exception of the library, however you are given a certain amount of money you can use to print in the library. You can also rent laptops/iPads to do work on. The wifi network and speed is very reliable.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Don't think about it very much

The quality and enthusiasm of the professors who care about their students is what attracts and retains students who could have gone to larger and more prestigious schools. Greenville is quite charming and has such good local food that most skeptics love the area, or at least ECU, by the time they graduate. Although the campus police are friendly, ECU is quite strict, perhaps in an effort to downplay the “party school” reputation. The strictness, however, contributes to student safety and helps reduce the drug presence on campus. Alcohol is a problem for some students, and the clubs are tempting, but the counseling center can help students with their problems. ECU’s computer resources are excellent, and the athletic facilities are better than the teams’ records. ECU’s most enjoyable facilities are the green areas, especially because the weather here is so pleasant—crazy, but pleasant.

Whether living on or off campus, students should join organizations to maximize their college involvement and build leadership experience for their resume. With ECU’s diverse student population, new students can easily find an organization, Greek or non-Greek, that is for them. ECU is reputed to have one of the highest concentrations of pretty girls anywhere, and the guys are good-looking overall, too. The Southern hospitality creates a welcoming social atmosphere. ECU has been through sports losses and administrative shake-ups in the past, but some of the political damage seems to be getting straightened out. So, as usual, ECU students are optimistic. They will continue to be easy-going, yet serious and balanced, fun-loving learners.
