Administration: Drinking in the dorms is strictly prohibited and you will get kicked out if you get caught. Most people don't get caught though. We have ABC officers who give out a lot of underage drinking tickets downtown.

Technology: Students can check out laptops from the library to use within the library. Each student gets a printing allowance at the library to print. There are also multiple computer labs on campus where students can print for free. The only difficult thing is if you need to make copies, your print money does not allow you to make copies.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living on campus was fun and I wish I had lived there for another year after my freshman year. It's just nice to know that people are looking out for you. The dorms at ECU are pretty new. They are building two new ones this year. I know most people get their first housing choice and you can always transfer rooms whenever you feel you need to. They want you to be comfortable and happy with your roommate.

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.
