Drug Safety: Everyone I know, including myself, partakes in some type of drug scene. It's here defiantly, but no one pressures anyone into doing drugs if they dont want too.

Health & Safety: I've only had positive experiences in this area .

Campus Housing: some buildings are INCREDIBLY nicer than others... aka white hall (hard wood floors, brand new) compared to legacy (cockroach haven). but THE HILL IS THE BEST

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority, and personally I think it does a lot for your social life. Making friends and meeting people is hard, this gives you the push you need. It's not "buying friends" because you dont have to be friends with people you dont want to be friends with.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my classes so far. I work hard in my classes and take them seriously, and I have been very appreciative of the assistance my teachers have provided.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is concerning to think that East Carolina has the reputation of a party school because I don't want my degree to have little worth. This assumption has been carried over for years, but honestly, ECU is not any more of a party school than other schools at this point.

Campus Housing: Compared to other dorms on campus, I for sure have the best option. It is clean and spacious.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not have much to say for Greek life because I am not associated with it much. I have plenty of friends who are a part of Greek life, and I think it is a cool opportunity for those who want to do it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football is the main attraction. Other sports are popular, too, but not to the extent of football. The fans are awesome.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ecu is a great school. So far, most of the teachers I have had are all willing to teach and help as much as they can. Of course, there are those select few who don't have the best attitude or are hard to understand, but that is going to happen at any university. The students are also awesome. At some schools I have visited, the students were not friendly or the least bit willing to strike up a conversation. Here, people are always open to having a conversation(for the most part.)

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: ECU has been the best school I could ever have attended. The professors are proactive, creative, and effective. For the most part, the classes are about 20 in size and their are several courses offered.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus has taken several measures to protect the health and safety of its students through student help centers and security cameras.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are pretty great. The class sizes aren't extremely big or anything and the environment they create is very effective for learning. There is a good variety of courses offered, especially in the science department.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Career services are very helpful and are always available. They really do care about helping us and have a lot of resources. A lot of staff are ECU alumni so the network is great, and even if they don't work on campus they work in the community and are helping students in some way.

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.
