5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They offer much financial aid based on your financial need. What also plays a major role is when they suggest that you start putting in your paperwork, that you actually start doing it. The sooner everything is completed the faster. My experience has been great because every question I have asked has been answered, or when I needed additional help they have worked with me on that also.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school is very strict when it comes to illegal activity on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police are always on patrol and whenever something looks out of order, they see about the situation. The campus is well lit at night. The administrators and professors are constantly educating the students on sexual related crimes. The school also receives patrol from off campus officials. They usually respond to situations quickly.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is basically a work in progress. I really enjoy it because everything is right there when you need it. There is currently a dorm that is being renovated. There are some dorms, that are currently closed and could be renovated also. Whenever new buildings have been built they have looked very good. As a freshman, whether you're female or male, you don't really get a choice where you will be staying, but I was satisfied where I lived. I would say the cost is pretty reasonable. The campus is not that big so everything is pretty much in a convenient location. As long as you handle your paperwork as far as housing in the appropriate time that is asked, the process is pretty simple.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek Life is a major thing on campus. They are always involved in different activities. There are a variety of sororities and fraternities. There are no houses that are made specifically for them, but I have realized in some of the dorms that many of them just try to room together. Many of the non-Greeks, admire the Greeks. This is shown by the many students that cross over into the Greek life, or just the general interaction with one another. Everyone interacts with one another, whether you're Greek or not.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I like it. Different places to travel to and eat.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship but I do plan on it. I have heard a lot of great things about some internship opportunities that some of the students have had. I am not worried about being able to find one because some of my professors have offered to tell me when they come across some as well.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: When I think of program, I believe you are referring to my major. It was pretty simple for me. I believe the main thing that admission looked at was my gpa, high school transcript, and test scores. I believe they were satisfied with those and it showed that it was good enough to be accepted.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I have realized that there has been much construction occurring on campus during the summer. Many of the facilities could use some help because some are older. They have done a really good with the buildings that have been constructed in the previous years. There are a lot of spots on campus where students can just stop and hang out that are convenient. Although the library is not one of the buildings that have been newly constructed, they have more than enough resources available. The students themselves are always coming up with event ideas, like now they already many events planned out for Welcome Back Week. The faculty and staff usually support the students with their ideas.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I knew going to this school, that there probably wouldn't be much of a scenery. The school is located in a small town. It is perfect for those who want to get away from home and go to small school. They have small downtown area with little shops and restaurants. There is a waterfront nearby, which is actually a very nice scenery in my opinion. When it comes to shopping there's not really much to offer. Everyone goes to Virginia or to their hometown to do some shopping. When it comes to the sports, the University teams are what people go watch or the local grade schools. The locals are very, I believe it's the "southern hospitality". It looks as if the police are around often, but events still occur but that's everywhere. I believe if they continue to construct new businesses then it will continue to get better, but it's a small town, so I don't see much of that happening.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Actually I was very surprised at how much school spirit there is. It seems that clubs such as Pep Squad and the band are the talk of the campus. I have realized that when it comes to colleges and universities in the south, the band is more important than the sports. This past year was not the best for our Football team but hopefully it'll be better this year. The basketball team did good overall. Although there is much school spirit, they are working on even more student involvement. There are always opportunities when they are trying to encourage students to be involved. The facilities in my opinion could use a lot of help, such as the fields and football arena. There is usually many people at the games especially football. Although there are problems, the school is working to fix them, like any other school. I have realized many of the students that are saying bad things about it, are those that are currently not involved in any activities.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The university is an HBCU (Historically Black College or University); therefore it is predominantly African-American. Although it is that way, there are other races also present, including international students. Once again, I say it is a small university so when compared to a bigger university there is much less diversity. There are various sexual preferences. Although everyone is not the same, we all seem to get along well. I have not witnessed a time where someone didn't have a friend as a result of their race or sexual preference.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Basically, it is all what you make it. Most of the parties that occur on campus are in Viking Village. Everyone wants to have fun and enjoy themselves. There are little parties here and there around the campus. It's better when it's hotter outside because that's when everyone is just having a big party outside. The parties aren't expected to have thousands of people because the school is a smaller university. Whenever I decide to go out, I enjoy myself especially because I'm out with my friends.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I lived in a dorm were the RA didn't care. First all at chowan the RA's are student not adults so they don't care. The whole residence hall authority are students. People do what ever they want. Girls run around all times of the day loud and screaming. Guys always in the hall pass hours. Which made it uncomfortable to take showers or use the bathrooms. The bathroom are nasty, toilets don't flush good and smell. Not clean at all hair in th sink and showers. The shower smell like old mold and full of dirt. Showers curtains dirty and the same ones all year. Also u get fined for the bathroom if not clean. This school is none thing but a party school underage drinking happens. They don't care I had a girl in my hall that smoked and drinked in her room and the RA know. Also people smoke weed in front of the dorms and don't get in trouble at all. They make it look like a Christian school but it's not.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is nasty. The best thing they have is pizza, which can be bad sometimes. They dining hall is very small and lines are long. You get tired of eating the same things. They don't know how to cook at all.

1 College Sophomore

Majors: There not enough majors to pick from. When picking classes there not enough to pick from so you take stuff you don't need.

1 College Sophomore

Majors: Did not enjoy none of it! The majors are terrible the school is too. All you do is write papers and take class like critical thinking which is pointless.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: They lost almost everything in every sport your not know there.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They give you scholarships, but you still have to get loans and have a payment plan. It not worth the cost. I transferred to a different school. It has the lowest cost and great rooms. At chowan the first year your paying two years worth of loans already. For what?

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: Diversity is the wrost. Mainly a black school, but on the website it's looks totally different. The only way you get accepted at ths school if you are a party person. I found little people that took religion serious.

1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They don't have real a nurse. It's a nursing assistant. You have to go to the nearest hospital which is an hour away. The campus police are never around and are very old men. They always send you emails about brake ends. When a girl gets raped it is not know and the right measures are not taken. A girl got raped and went through real bad emotional problems. She never returned to school.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: I love my housing, and the other housing available is great too.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: It's not bad, but it could be better.

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't stay off-campus and don't know much about the process

4 College Senior

Academics: Not too much, not too little. Most teachers do a good job with teaching and helping us to learn the material.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Valerie Edwards
Aviation Science
Grad Year
View all previous student authors

For many aviation majors, Elizabeth City State University is the only choice in North Carolina. But whether you are into air travel or not, you will meet some lifelong friends at the University and people who will become like family to you. As students progress toward graduation, more and more opportunities come their way. The career services department always makes sure students are aware of different opportunities. Summer internships are perfect opportunities to network and meet new people who might be good resources to you after you graduate.

Many opportunities come about because of the amazing faculty and staff at ECSU. The one problem is that because the University is growing, it hasn't been able to staff as many professors to meet the growing demand for classes. Because of this, not all core classes are available throughout the year.
