2 College Freshman

Scholarships: i need more financial aid

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It could be better it could be worse

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus food is not bad. I would just like to see more of a variety. After a while the students become bored with the same choices every week.

Campus Housing: Campus living is fun because it is easy to interact and meet many people. It also allows you to stay connected with things going on around the university with the bulletin boards and posters.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not plan on getting involved in greek life so i don't really know.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not started looking for an apartment this year so i cannot really say anything about that.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't really eat off campus so I don't really have much to say about that.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I guess campus is not super strict unless you are endangering others or yourself and/or doing something illegal.

College Freshman

Scholarships: All I could really secure were loans with interest rates and aside from that the only financial aid I really received was my Honors College Scholarship.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't been to any house parties really. I've only gone clubbing three times.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall has it's good and bad days but you will most likely find something to eat if you are not extremely picky and have severe food allergies. I guess being vegetarian has its limits as well.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is okay. The dorm I am staying in is alright but it doesn't have an elevator. However cost to live in a dorm is expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Really the problem for where I live is that the building is just so old and is in need of a renovation. Also, we're supposed to have reliable wifi at all times and that's hardly ever the case. Another problem is that our RA has a select group of favorites who get special treatment and it's just really not fair. Living on campus does have its perks, though. I'm always super close to food and the library and all of my classes.

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.
