3 College Senior

Greek Life: Its cool but im online.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: there are little crimes committed on campus but more of the problems occur in the surrounding areas off campus

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: it is nice living on campus because it is a short walk to anywhere on campus, which is nice for class, and you don't have to worry about keeping up with a lot of stuff in the dorm

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of campus in a social way, being throwing parties or having socials, they definitely help you get in the know of what is going on a lot of the time.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: ECU athletics are largely supported by students, alumni, and all fans in general. Football games are definitely the most enjoyable but I also enjoy going to baseball and basketball games.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone loves ECU which makes it a much more fun campus. The best experiences are football tailgates in the fall.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the overall the quality of education that I am receiving. There are always a lot of different classes that I can choose from.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I hate greek life in general.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I dislike how athletics are treated, but I'm a theatre student so my opinion is probably irrelevant to you.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's not the best school ever, but it was perfect for me. The fringe environment and the majors/masters offered to me were exactly what I needed.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not involved in the Greek life at school. They have their own housing and are very involved at the school.

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.
