5 College Freshman

Majors: I love my major so far and all the professors! I plan on either working in lodging or special events once I graduate and I think this program will help me do just that. I have no concerns about finding a job in this career because I am earning a degree and my job will be needed.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I did not have any difficulty getting into this program.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Generally the weather here isn't too bad. During the beginning of the year and the end of the spring it is really nice out which is enjoyable and it doesn't get too cold during the winter months so I don't mind walking to class. But on the other hand it rains a lot and that makes me not want to walk around campus.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I really enjoy hospitality management at my school. It is so easy to get involved and participate while having an education. I participate in class and learn a lot. All the professors are really approachable and help me whenever needed. They explain everything in great detail and it makes learning fun.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: People at my school use drugs but it is not too noticeable. They do it behind closed doors but it is known.

3 College Freshman

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There is a large selection of housing off-campus; students can even pick from student off-campus housing if desired. Most housing is close to ECU in proximity. ECU provides transportation to many areas.

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.
