ECU's campuis is beautiful, you will always see people out and about on campus, no matter what time. Football is a big part of ECU, join the student pirate club and tailgate at the bottom of college hill! It's a great experience and you meet so many people. We have so many dorm programs for incoming freshman also, I did Freshman Experience, which really helped me to get involved on campus!

Greek life is somewhat a big deal at ECU and can be very cliquey. However, if you're not in greek life there's still a lot of bars/clubs to go to downtown on weekends.
College Sophomore 2013-05-02T18:02:09Z
The facilities are okay. There is always room in the library.
College Sophomore 2013-05-02T18:00:47Z
The town of Greenville sucks, a large amount of students can be described as trashy or slutty, and the student population isn't intelligent enough to have a real football cheer/chant. "Pirates arghhhh!" Really? That's the best you can do?

The food is pretty average compared to other schools. There is little variety in the dining halls, although they do attempt to switch an option here and there and have theme nights.
College Senior 2013-04-29T23:49:38Z
There are many places to eat off campus. Greenville offers many options for food. Sit down restaurants, fast food, and deli shops, are only several options available.
College Senior 2013-04-29T23:45:29Z
There are several areas where drug use is obvious. However, it depends on the people you surround yourself with.

At later points of the day the bus travels at a different schedule which means a longer waiting time. There is a number to call, safe ride, to pick you up when you are stranded however.

Greenville pretty much caters to the ECU campus. The community thrives off of the fact that ECU is in session, especially local restaurants, with many businesses having student discounts. Athleticism is also a great attraction within all sporting programs.

The computers are more up to date and technology is constantly evolving. It is very plentiful in throughout campus.

Policies are set in place, yet those who do things against the set rules, depending on the severity, are held accountable on what I think to be reasonable levels, especially if it is a first offense. If there are offenses that place the student body in direct danger, campus officials don't take too lightly those offenses, but if they are ones that an individual completes that is mainly dangerous to self, they look more toward whether or not it is 1. A serious offense in other areas besides just campus and 2. If it is a pattern for the individual

For the most part, people here like to party a lot. There is such a huge student body here though, if you don't want to be involved in that scene you don't have to be. I have friends that are involved in that type of stuff, and friends that are not, so it really depends. The police here are very aware of the issues, and are always on the lookout for drug and alcohol abuse. It is not tolerated by the school though, and I know people who have been kicked out for possession of weed.

As a communications major it is extremely vital to have an internship before setting foot into the real world. Iam a freshman and have not yet had a chance to apply for an internship, but I know that when the time comes I will be able to find one. The School of Communications at ECU is always alerting you of new opportunities, and you can always go talk to a professor about more opportunities. It's really all about first come, first serve, and whoever really puts themselves out there. If you want to find an internship you can, but it's not just going to fall into your lap.

I am not currently a part of greek life at my school, but I do plan on rushing in the fall. I think that greek life really is a big part of this school. I don't think it is completely necessary to be in a fraternity or sorority here to go to parties or have a good time, but I definitely think it helps. There are definitely stereotypes and certain ways that people regard greek life here, but it is so big that there are basically fraternities or sororities that appeal to any kind of person. The greeks are usually always having something going on, and I know a lot of people like to attend these events, even if they are not a part of greek life. Most of the sororities and fraternities here have their own houses, which are available for a few people in them to live. I also know a lot of people who are in a sorority or fraternity and still live in a dorm or an apartment.

I am only a freshman in my program of Communications at East Carolina University, so I'm not fully aware of all the benefits and options of it, but so far I think it's good. They send out monthly newsletters telling everyone in the program what's going on within the School of Communications, internships and other opportunities available. The teachers that I've had so far have been helpful and willing to talk whenever you need them. The majority of them have also worked in the field themselves, so they have real experience. The workload of the classes I've taken so far in my major has been a lot, but not too overwhelming. It has been manageable with my other classes, but it has been nonstop, which helps to prepare for the actual field. I know that we have several clubs, and opportunities just within my University to work on communications skills to prepare for the field. There are a couple school newspapers, a radio station, announcing positions for sports teams and more. Thus far, I feel that my program is geared to be very realistic and to truly prepare you and help you into the real world.

There is a no allowance for drugs on campus. If you get caught, you get kicked out of school.

Guys & Girls:
People here party a lot. It seems like there's always a party going on here somewhere. That's not my kind of scene. There are other people here who don't party like me, but it's hard to find.

Off campus dining options include great places like Sheetz, SupDogs and Angelo's Pizza.

They aren't as strict as you would think but honoring the Honor Code is a must have.

Health & Safety:
The campus police are very good at ensuring students safety here at ECU. However in most cases a student has been assaulted or robbed on account of them walking alone at night which they tell you numerous amounts of time to always walk with a crowd if you are walking at night.

Greenville is a lot of college town, but there is a side that is residents. The atmosphere here though is very strong. You can feel the Pirate pride. The sporting events I believe bring the community together the most. There is plenty of shopping and recreation areas to do what ever activities you want. Most every one I have talked to loves Greenville. There is a side of Greenville that is sketchy and not the best, but every town has one of those.
College Senior 2013-04-12T00:47:04Z
The facilities at ECU are definitely up to par. Athletics are a big deal at this school so of course they should be! Our colesium is like-new and right now a new basketball facility is being built.
College Senior 2013-04-09T15:57:49Z
It's a normal college with plenty of school spirit.

Transportation and East Carolina University is free. There are several buses that run. Some run to and from off campus housing, some run from the commuter parking lot to several other stops near classes, so run in town for students to buy groceries or go to the mall, and some run all around campus for students that live on campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
