5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: ECU wasn't my top choice but it was still a school I was very interested in going to, I never thought I would like it as much as my top choice. After spending a semester at ECU I have completely fallen in love with it; the campus is gorgeous, my professors are helpful, and my friends are great.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Students always show school spirit. The sports team performs as a family.

Overall Experience: Once you get your feet wet, your social life becomes a breeze.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: ECU does a good job of making sure we are safe, but nothing really happens here.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes are either really challenging or they are pretty straight forward

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a lot of alumni and that sets you apart from others

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I encourage everyone to stay on campus because it is a good transition and having a meal plan is so much easier.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is big, the houses are pretty nice and they throw great parties

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is no other school that has more involvement in sports then ECU

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is no other place like it!!!!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I feel the cirriculum is rigorous. I study hard. The registration process is tedious as there is a window assn. for me to choose my classes. I can add after, but usu. depends on others dropping the classes for which I am trying to get into. The library is a great study area and there are many study rooms if I need to do group projects. The professors are all great. I only had one I did not like.

Health & Safety: There are always campus police around campus. The blue lights are abundant and I could utilize these if I felt threatened or unsafe in any way.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I only had one professor that I did not gel with. I am repeating this class in the Spring for a better grade. the class sizes are fairly small and the course variety is adequate. Sometimes it is difficult to get into the classes I want, but it gets easier each semester as more credits are earned.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the sports and kinesthesiology majors are able to find jobs after graduation. Internships are important. I feel the value of the education is great, esp. since I am out of state. The campus career services seem awesome. I am only a sophomore so I haven't really utilized these so much yet.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms are on the smallish side. I have met nice people in the dorms. I want more space so want to move into an off campus house with my buddies in the Fall.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: really never pledged a fraternity. The parties are fun and the people in fraternities are nice to non-greeks such as myself.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many areas around campus to get in contact with Ecu campus police. Also, there are many resources so you do not have to walk home alone at night.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many diverse courses to choose from. Also, professors are friendly and always willing to help.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are always job fairs going on. Also, information on internships are always sent out for each major.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: living on campus is good for being close to classes. The quality of the dorms is poor. The cleanliness of the bathrooms are poor, and the rooms are small. It is not worth the amount of money you pay to live on campus.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: As a member of Greek life I can say it plays a huge role on campus. Many events are based around Greek life. For the social atmosphere it would help to be in Greek life, but it does not determine how much fun one will have. Most sororities and fraternities have houses which can house many member.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The student body has tremendous support for all ECU sports teams. There is a lot of school spirit all over campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: From the first day I visited I knew it was going to be a great school . Each day the entire student body, professors, and great friends remind me as to why I chose ECU. My academic experience goes beyond the classroom, and I am confident that I will be fully prepared for my career.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. My Psychology 1000 class was on the other side of campus, and was a 6-9pm class. I was always walking back to the dorm alone at night, and I felt really safe. I got pepper spray before leaving for college, but I've felt no need to carry it with me because I feel completely safe. I have had a bad experience with the Safe Ride program though. They refused to pick up my friends and I at 9pm when we were off campus because it would have interfered with the bus schedule. The purpose of the program is to safely transport students back to campus when they feel like they are in potential danger or are not feeling safe, and they did not do their job because it, and I quote, "may confuse the bus schedule and disrupt it, so you have to wait for the next bus to arrive," which would have been over an hour later. Other than that, I've felt very safe on campus, and I feel safe with the police presence on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's not bad, but it's not great either. I live in a really old dorm that is apparently getting redone soon, as I've heard. The sinks are kind of rusty and sometimes overflow some non-pleasant materials. The bathrooms are pretty clean for a community style bathroom that's being primarily used by teenagers. The cleaning staff in my dorm are so nice. They're always smiling and asking us how we're doing. They're great. Being in the art LLC, my dorm is literally a parking lot away from the majority of my classes, which is really awesome.

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.
