Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school was not my initial choice when it came to choosing a college, but I am glad I chose it because it gives me the opportunity to major in pharmaceutical science unlike many of my other choices. Just about all of the professors I have had are there because they love their job and they would like to see the students succeed. The class sizes are perfect, because it is enough people present to be noticed and easily have discussions.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The alumni are always trying to do something for the students and the school. Many of the students that have graduated have moved on to bigger and better things. The school is always notifying the students of career opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am pharmaceutical science major. I have am currently getting my prerequisites out of the way. I have spoken to some of the professors in this program on different occasions and I am very excited about taking some of their classes. I have been informed that there are many internship opportunities.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have only dealt with On-Campus housing.

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.
