Campus Quality: The rec center is awesome. It could use more weight machines but other than that its amazing. I Think ECU has one of the best libraries.

Diversity: ECU has A LOT of diversity. Everyone has something to offer the campus and everyone is accepting. There is especially a diversity in sexual orientation, I've met people of every orientation. The diversity makes the campus so much better.

Campus Food: The dining halls are pretty good I guess for school food. They have quesadilla, deli, and asian food stations which is really nice. However, the main meals that they have everyday aren't very good.

Athletics: Everyone is always hyped up for football season and everyone always has a great time. Faithful pirate fans come from all over for some saturday pirate football!

Majors: When a student enters freshmen year, they can might have decided what their major is or they might not have. ECU makes freshmen year a year where you take general courses so that you can select which major you would like to take. After my freshmen year, I had decided on my major and also my career choice. But of course, I had to finish certain criteria before I was able to declare my major which was taking certain chemistry classes. But one good thing was that when my advisor sent me the application for declaring my major, mostly everything was filled out. So I just had to look over few things and fill out things that my advisor didn't fill out.

Just like any other school/college, ECU also has certain criteria to get the admission and it is getting competitive to get admission in ECU. One tip I would offer is to show that you exceed not only in academics, but also in extracurricular activities. It will look good to get different awards and show that you are very competitive person.

Majors: I am part of the Chemistry/Physics LLC (Living-Learning Community) where the students are either Chemistry or Physics major. This is a great way to get to know few people that are same major as you. And one another good part of this group is that the first year of college, all the students will be in the same chemistry/physics classes so it makes it easy to study with those students. Also, there are certain times when the LLC meets to learn something or to enjoy themselves. We get different opportunities to different events such as attending someone's research lecture.

Local Area: The town of Greenville is pretty resourceful just like any other town. If a student needs anything off-campus such as going to Walmart then it's pretty easy. They can take the bus (if they don't have a car) to Walmart and it is relatively close to campus too. Walmart is one of the stores, but there are other stores too. There are also restaurants where students can go to and they give good treatment to students especially the restaurants in downtown Greenville.

Athletics: There are options for the athletes and non-athletes to practice in same place. The facilities are the same for both which is really important since not all the students are athletes & they should get same facilities as athletes.

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments have their own process of when they will give out the application for lease. There are different apartments that have different offers and students can choose any apartment they want to live in. They all are gated which makes the apartments safer for the students and also the students have to show their IDs after certain hour which adds to the security.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Students on this campus are seen going to classes or the library most of the time. They even go to different student centers available to us. We have two great dining halls, along with other dining options such as Subway or Chic-fil-a. The campus is never empty unless it's an holiday which makes the campus a bit safer too. The faculty members are also seen on campus either going to class or getting coffee. They are definitely friendly and they will definitely stop to talk to you if you see them on the campus. There are many events that occur on the campus which gets the students involved! One place where events occur is Mendenhall and that is also one place for students to hangout or have study group sessions or even a club meeting. Overall, this campus is a friendly and resourceful campus!

Academics: The academics offered at ECU are often underrated. Most people do not acknowledge how great the programs at ECU are. Most people also do not realize that we have an awesome medical and teaching program. ECU actually graduates the most teachers and nurses in the state of NC.

Academics: To be a Communication major at ECU is great. You get to meet so many people that you would have never thought had the same major and likes as you do.

Party Scene: Obviously, if you have heard anything about East Carolina University, then you have heard that it's THE party school. Now, for people who like to party, then yes it's amazing. However, for people like me who maybe like to have quiet nights in, it's great too. ECU definitely has a nightlife and holds various parties but it's not too overbearing to where people who do not like to party can't have a good time either.

Majors: The Communication program at ECU is one of the best in the nation. They offer a variety of fields that you can enter. I am a Public Relations major and I absolutely love it! They have organizations, classes, and internships that definitely help me to improve my skills in my communication and leadership capabilities.

Majors: As an uprising Junior, I have not completed an internship yet. However, I plan on completing one by at least next summer. ECU offers to many advisers and faculty members to help students land the internships that they desire.

Scholarships: Obviously, financial aid at any school can be a hassle. However, at ECU, our financial aid office works really hard to make sure that each students is taken care of and that he/she gets the adequate amount of aid to help them stay in school.

Off-Campus Housing: I personally do not live off-campus, however, I have many friends who do and they absolutely love it. Living off-campus is cheaper than living on-campus, and ECU still provides bus transportation to each of the off-campus housing facilities to bring students to and from classes Monday-Friday which I think is absolutely incredible; especially because its free to ride the ECU bus.

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.
