5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The fan and student support for our athletics is top of the line for our conference and ratings. Alumni still come back to fill our football stadiums and the student section is always cheering for our teams. Its always a great day when you go to a game and feel so connected because everyone is doing the same chants and cheers.

Overall Experience: East Carolina University has given me the best experience, so far, that I could ask for. As a second semester college sophomore I have no regret for choosing this to be my home for 4 years. ECU has an undergrad program of close to 20,000 students, yet none of my classes have been over 100 students. I like this because I really wanted to go to a big college, but yet one that didn't give me anxiety with all the people on campus and in my classes. East Carolina really has everything I wanted and more.

Health & Safety: Always walk in a group. Most people who get assaulted are walking alone very late at night so they are mugged for whatever they're carrying. If you use common sense, you will most likely be safe.

Overall Experience: If you're taking a class that you're passionate about, it's usually a good experience as there are a lot of professors that love what they teach. However class sizes will be huge up until you get into your very upper level classes, with some exceptions.

Campus Housing: Every room is tiny unless you live on West End or in the new Gateway dorms, but Gateway is reserved for smart people

Greek Life: There are a variety of sororities and fraternities, from Panhellenic and IFC to African American organizations and service sororites, so there really is something for everyone.

Athletics: On gamedays, the whole city turns into one giant tailgate and everyone comes out to cheer our pirate players on!

Overall Experience: The party scene, tailgates on gamedays, and just the overwhelming school spirit is fantastic. However, there's not a lot to do in Greenville itselft.

Health & Safety: ECU is pretty good at making you feel safe with the large amounts of ecu police and greenville police constantly surveying areas.

Overall Experience: The quality of courses is pretty awesome, I mean many of the professors enjoy their job and are usually pretty ecstatic. However some are not the best but you can expect that in such a huge school.

Overall Experience: Ecu is terrible at providing rides/transportation. I am in fact an international without a car studying nursing. So many times have go to Brody school of nursing on Saturdays yet ECU provides no rides, and many times do not care how you get there.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not the best due to having to deal with everything squeaky considering how much your paying to leave on campus. If you live in west end it is a long walk to classes as well, and definitely not fun sharing gross bathrooms with the people.

Campus Housing: Dorms are dorms. Most of them are relatively nice and updated. I'd recommend living on College Hill above any other places on campus.

Overall Experience: The first time I ever stepped foot on ECU, I knew it was the school for me. Every since I moved in I've felt at home. The campus is amazing, along with all of the amenities that are included. The athletics, from football to basketball, are awesome.

Health & Safety: For the most part I feel pretty safe on campus. Most schools at some point will have an assault, so hearing about one does not normally alert me too much. Most of these assaults involve alcohol.

Overall Experience: I do not have too much experience with the career center or it's services. East Carolina University has many opportunities to network to increase your chances of getting a job.

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.
