5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experiences in classes have made me extremely content with the education that I am receiving. The professors care about helping their students succeed as long as the student is willing to put in the effort to succeed. Office hours are very good and you are able to ask you professors for help and they will provide the best help possible for you.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel very confident that once I graduate I will not have a problem finding a job in my field of study. I have heard about many internships that fellow peers have been a part of and it seems fairly easy to get an internship. It is also very competitive to get an on-campus job because many students want to be a part of on-campus jobs.

Campus Housing: I think that the on-campus housing is pretty great because you get the full college experience and you meet a bunch of people as a freshman. The dorms are kind of small but that is to be expected.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
