After East Carolina University
- Very Good925
My ongoing experience at East Carolina University has been phenominal! The environment itself is very lively and upbeat. I have been given the opportunity to expand my social output and meet others who have the same interests as I do. More importantly I have been able to further expand my education as a fellow ECU pirate.

I like how welcoming the university is, but I hate how it is almost always under construction and has been since my first day there.

I feel ECU provides meant opportunities to help freshman students make a successful transition from high school to college. Once freshman year is complete, I think ECU, assists in providing students with tools necessary for continued success. Sometimes ECU is seen as a party school, however, my personal opinion is that unless you attend ECU, outsiders simply confuse our tremendous school spirit and purple pride as as a party school rather than the wonderful academic school that we represent. I am proud to be a pirate and sometimes resent being called a party school, we can boast of the medical advances that have been provide by the ECU school of medicine and the research that has been provided through our University! Arggg Go Pirates!
