5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus!

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I enjoy living in Greenville and going to ECU!

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The are plenty of off campus living options for students. Prices CAN vary, but most students find good deals that fit their budgets. The school provides bus transportation to and from campus from most (if not all) of the off campus living sites.

3 College Junior

Weather: When there is mention of snow or ice on the news campus shuts down. Rain is very unpredictable which is why a lot of students will always carry umbrellas and they own a pair or 2 of rain boots. It tends to flood a lot around campus as well.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Although I haven't lived on campus in 3 years I remember experiencing the good and the bad. They are constantly refurbishing dorms because the campus is so old. The end product is usually 10 times better than before. However, there are still some "antique" looking dorms lingering around campus, but for the most part they are very nice.

5 College Junior

Computers: There are computer labs all over campus - some of which are open 24/7. Rarely does the network go down and when it does ITCS promptly sends out an email saying what is going on and when it is expected to come back up. The ACE troubleshooting center is very convenient, but often very crowded.

5 College Junior

Athletics: We are a FOOTBALL school. That's the big sport everyone attends. The school of PURPLE and GOLD are always enthusiastic about showing school spirit whether our sports teams win or lose!

5 College Junior

Majors: I am very happy with program. They prepare you well and make sure you have to appropriate classes for the foundation of knowledge that you'll need for your career path.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into the program was fair. My particular program I had to pass a physical fitness test in order to declare a major in the health and fitness area. The school made sure I had the appropriate background classes before declaring my major.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It depends on who's in authority

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Very friendly, intimate, and busy town

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.
