5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved East Carolina University so far. I have felt like I have gotten a great education and I have made some great friends and connections. I could not imagine going anywhere else.

Parking: Parking on campus is terrible! There is no where to park on campus during the week if you do not have a parking pass. There are a few meter spots, but they are always taken. Parking passes are so expensive so it is very annoying if you live off-campus and have to find ways to get to campus. Parking officers are intense and you WILL get a ticket if you park somewhere you are not supposed to.

Greek Life: I think we have a great Greek Life. It is not too big, so if you are not involved in Greek Life it is okay. Some non-Greeks probably think bad about Greeks just because of stereotypes, but for the most part I think our Greek life has a good reputation.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid and the only option I received was a loan. I figured it would be easier to go ahead and pay the money instead of taking the loan that way I won't have loans to pay off when I get out of college. Therefore, I did not take the offer of the loan.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places surrounding ECU's campus. Greenville Blvd is full of different types of restaurants. They are fast food restaurants, nice dining restaurants, healthy options, etc. Most of the places are affordable for college students and for the most part have good quality food and service.

Majors: To get into the college of business you just had to be accepted to ECU. To declare a concentration in the college of business you have to pass all the core foundation credits and then you can pick a concentration.

Majors: I enjoy the college of business and majoring in business because it is a great program. I have already learned a lot of operating and working in a business environment, but these information I am learning is also useful for any career you will have. You can almost do anything with a business degree and that is what is so great about it.

Academics: I am a business major and I love it. ECU has an excellent college of business and all the professors work hard to teach you how to be successful. In one of my classes this year we got the opportunity to meet four successful CEO's. We got the chance to ask them questions on what to do after we graduate and what kinds of things that managers look for when hiring someone. It was enlightening to hear what are some of the things that I need to do before I graduate to ensure that I get a good job. Very helpful tips.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: ECU offers a great variety of majors. All majors have a strong curriculum and workload. No major is considered easy, they are all challenging in order to provide each student with an adequate education.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I lived in an all girls dorm so the policies in my dorm were very strict. Definitely no alcohol, drugs, etc and no boys after 2 a.m. The rules were enforced and I felt safe around campus due to all the security.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I do not drink or do drugs and so I rarely go downtown because I feel so awkward when I do because everyone there is so drunk. I do not usually see drugs being used at parties, but I have definitely heard of them being used or noticed people who seem to be under the influence of something.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Our library and computer labs are excellent and they are plenty of them around campus. It is definitely useful to have a laptop, but if you do not have one or yours is not working it is very easy to find another computer to use on campus that will be reliable for what you need to accomplish.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I am not much of a partier so I do not really go to the bar/club scene much, but from what I hear and see most students love our downtown area. The cover charges for underage people is pretty expensive, but there is definitely a variety of places to go downtown.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: ECU football games are the best! The whole town of Greenville bleeds purple and gold on game days and everyone has great school spirit.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Our bus system is very convenient and useful for our campus. They are multiple apartment complexes that are off campus and the bus system makes sure to send buses to these places so that these students can commute back and forth to class in an easy and affordable way.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: We have a great meal plan that allows you to either do to the dining hall for meals or eat meals other places on campus such as Chick-Fil-A, Panda Express, Einstein bagels, and other campus restaurants.

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.
