Elizabeth City State University can feel like a home away from home. People are more mature in the sense of "you're black and I'm white, so that doesn't mean we can't socialize together." There really is no discrimination directed toward any group, such as LGBT students, international students, or multiracial students. Students have learned to accept one another regardless of economic background or the color of their skin.
ECSU is a beautiful, diverse campus that strives for the best in character, education, and professionalism. Overall, many students will say that considering that Elizabeth City State University is an HBCU (Historically Black College or University), with more than 80 percent of people being African American, the expansion of campus means that more different ethnic groups will flock to campus. With each new year, many minorities are spotted on campus, and such uniqueness is an enjoyable sight to see.
