Great Learning Environment. East Carolina is a big school, but you can still have quality time with professors.

Very Good – Lots of quality options, dining halls are good, also chili's, subway, and chick-fil-a on campus.

Excellent Bus Service – gets you around campus and even around town to grocery and wal-mart/target

Dorms are pretty well maintained, and campus dining options are great. Much better than I've heard from friends at other schools.
College Senior 2012-06-30T04:05:08Z
There are many different types of people and everyone is very accepting.
College Senior 2012-06-30T04:00:38Z
The school has a enormous student fan section for all sports played. The teams are usually average though.

Geology Major – The program is very great thanks to the great professors but the facilities could be improved.
College Senior 2012-06-30T03:56:17Z
The geology department has very knowledgeable staff.

Freshman dorm halls are kind of dirty and need renovation, especially on College Hill. Upperclassmen are given several options for the newer dorms.

Health & Safety:
Relatively safe. Safe Ride isn't as "safe" as it is made out to be. Love the campus, absolutely beautiful.

Guys & Girls:
The guys and girls on campus are very diverse. East Carolina has a girl to guy ratio of 3-1 i belive but I could be wrong about that number. East Carolina also had been voted as one of the universities with the hottest girls in the nation i can see that. You will typically find social groups such as the preppy kids, greek kids, Skater boys, and jocks. As far as guys are concerned, there are a lot of girls on campus and i believe there is someone for everyone

There are 10 different student apartments i can name off the top of my head around campus. most of them are affordable for students on budgets ranging from $350-600 per month depending on which apartment complex you choose to live in. They are all safe and secure and include great ammenities like private bath and bedrooms, decks, community pools, computer labs, and gyms. All of them have buses that run to and from campus so you do not have to worry if you don't have a car. In most of the leases each roomate signs a seperate lease so everyone does not get punished if someone cannot pay their months rent. Overall if you choose to live off campus, there are plenty of choices that will make you happy

Great Professors – The College of Business at East Carolina University has calmed my nerves and confirmed for me that I am headed in the right direction. The professors are very good about making time for you with their office hours, and know alot about what they are doing. It is overall a great learning environment when surrounded by all of their instructors.

Saferide Is the Safest – Safe Ride is a shuttle bus system that has a number you can call if you need to get anywhere around campus or in short proximity of the campus. This ride is free and has a very short wait after calling them. It is a much safer option than walking to your destination.
College Junior 2012-06-25T00:12:22Z
Our dining hall has a variety of stations for all different types of foods including Chinese, Vegetarian, American, Barbeque/Southern-style, but the only problem is the behind-the-scenes nutritions facts label on these foods. If only some of the students knew what these foods were made of! Very unhealthy ingredients, and this is what leads me to making my dinners in my dorm room most of the time.

Helpful but Limited – ECU has a variety of student housing and they are very helpful if you need to change rooms. The moving options are limited though with few empty rooms.
College Junior 2012-06-22T15:08:47Z
Drinking Is the Main Issue – Drug Safety is as great as it can be without busting in peoples rooms or spontaneous drug tests in class. There are a lot of marijuana users, but I truly believe there are no more than most colleges.

The clubs downtown are generally small and some have stigmas to them. The one's most locals go to are considered the most dangerous because of their access to weapons. Most people who go DT (downtown) are on campus students and they aren't allowed weaponry. Another club is considered not only racist but iffy with their dress code. ECU clubs are over-hyped because of the drunk attendants overall. However, SupDogs and other eatery places so close to the clubs is AMAZING and the clubs overall play great music.

A Pirate for Life – I am so happy and thrilled with my decision to attend East Carolina University! The campus is beautiful, the professors are amazing and the school spirit is vibrant. It is a wonderful feeling to sit in Dowdy-Ficklen Staduim and watch the wave of purple and gold and hear the roaring chants as our football team runs onto the field (and I'm not even a fan of football). There are so many various student organizations available to join that I had a hard time narrowing down my membership to just five. I have enjoyed the courses I've taken thus far for my major and I truly feel that I have learned so much since coming to ECU. When I first took a tour of the campus, I instantly felt that I was at home and that feeling has stayed with me ever since. I will definitely be a Pirate for life!

Health & Safety:
I rarely feel unsafe on East Carolina's campus. ECU has their own certified police department on campus and I often see police cars and police officers on bikes patrolling the campus. That being said, I still wouldn't recommend walking around at night by yourself. Just like in any city, its best to always be aware of your surroundings when you are walking at night on the campus. The most common crime on campus is theft. Always keep your dorm door locked and never leave your laptop alone in public, not even for a second!

It Is Possible to Double Major! I am a double major in English and History. The English and History majors are flexible enough that they compliment each other and I will be able to finish in four years without having to go to summer school. From my knowlegde, it is also possble to double major at ECU and graduate on time with other programs too. Besides the core classes required for my majors, I have the opportunity to choose from a long list of courses and form my majors around the concentration that I desire. I am very pleased with the variety of classes offered in my majors and excited to graduate with two BA degrees!

An Excellent Variety – Greenville has a very nice variety of dining and a good few are in walking distance of the campus. Hibachi Japan, La Hacienda, Krispy Kreme, Thai 360, Starbucks, Sup Dogs, Tipsy Teapot (cafe), Chico's, Jimmy John's, McDonald's, Arby's and Wendy's are all within walking distance of the campus. There are also a few other dining and bar spots near the campus in the downtown area. Other dining in the Greenville area (you will need some kind of transportation to get there) include Red Lobster, Mazatlan, Chic-fil-A, Chili's, Dunkin' Donuts, Cook-Out, Lemon Grass Thai Restaurant (my personal favorite), several Hibachi places, several Chinese places, Panera Bread, Cold Stone, Olive Garden, Logan's, Checkers, Bruegger's Bagel Bakery, Parker's Barbeque and several others. Many dining locations offer a student discount. The cost at most places is reasonable, but as a college student, I prefer to use a meal plan and eat on campus because it is easier and more convenient for me with my schedule.

Education First – East Carolina has a repuation for being a party school, but that reputation in no way reflects the value of an education from ECU. The professors are intelligent, knowledgeable in their field and most are eager and willing to help if you ask questions. The course work is rigorous according to the level of the class and most classes (excluding some Freshman level courses) are relatively small (20-30). I have truly enjoyed all of the classes I've taken thus far in my major and all the professors have been friendly and very helpful. My classes have been challenging and I feel grateful to have acquired so much knowledge from the amazing professors at ECU.

I'm Happy With My Major – Though I have a passion for art and many people thought that's what my major should be (personally do not believe i'm that good) i chose nursing. It is a struggle trying to get my gpa where it needs to be since i messed up my freshman year but im pulling it back up. I wouldn't change my decision to be a nursing major. My goal is to be a neonatal nurse practitioner and eventually a neonatologist. Before I settle down as an nnp i want to be a traveling nurse for a year or two. I do not have concerns about getting a job in my field, nurses are always needed somewhere.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
