Luckily, Greenville has a wide variety of food choices because I love to try new things. There are places like Olive garden, for an Italian craving, I-Hop for an American taste, Mi Cabana for Mexican, Japan-Inn for an Asian taste, and even Indian cuisine. The prices are also reasonable too. You can't go wrong here.

Elementary EDU Program – So far I am pleased with my program. I have not faced any bumps or bruises. They are excellent in equipping us with the tools we need to succeed in our field and later in our career. I am not worried about finding a job after I graduate.

Of course football is THE sport for college. There are also intramurals and clubs for people to participate in.

Off-Campus Review – I do not live off campus so I can not relay and reviews as far as landlords, safety, or perks, but I know the prices are pretty steep but they do include utilities and such.

TOOK FOREVER TO KICK IN – Applying was easy, but after being awarded scholarships, they took a while to reflect on my billing statement.

NOT STRICT – ECU doesnt have many specific rules. Just the general stuff like "no booze in dorms", etc.

There are alot of parties almost every night of the week, and people are almost always downtown as another option.

The rain is on and off most days, very very muggy during the beginning of school

The campus has people from all kinds of backgrounds. There contain alot of people from the south, and towns around greenville which tend to be sort of "redneck".

Research Assistant – I have had an enlightening and wonderful experience as a Research Assistant and Teaching Assistant. The faculty is very supportive of all students and is focused on student success.

Very Helpful Staff – I have had a wonderful experience with the student aid department and process.

Lots of Options for Students – I received help in finding a place for my family to live through the university. We have lived happily in the area for the past 2 years.

My overall experience has been great! ECU may be known as a party school, but it's only what you make of it. If you devote your time to studying hard, then your college will be just that! If you devote your time to partying and all of that good stuff, your experience will be just that! I experienced both and I'm proud to say that I have LOVED my experience here and I AM going to miss it, but there's a time for fun and games and there's a time to step up to the plate and live this thing they call life.

The cost of permits is ridiculous! A student should not have to pay as much as we do for parking passes, because we are STUDENTS! Ticketing and fines are ridiculous. It's like they're out there watching and waiting for people to park so that they can go check to see if your car has a sticker or not. You can go into a place for 5 minutes, come back out and have a ticket on your car. The availability of parking spaces doesn't amount to nothing. They give out more parking passes than there are parking spaces around campus. Something needs to be done about the parking. You hae to get to campus by 8 a.m. to be able to get the last couple of parking spaces that will be left. They should make parking decks around campus and the passes should not be $190 for a yearly pass. It's ridiculous!

The computer labs that I use at East Carolina niversity are the best! Printing is free! The newtwork reliability and speed is good! There is wireless access 24/7, you can even get it in the parking lots and on the buses through your phone! The wireless network action is the best I've ever know of. I'm not really a libraryor computer lab person but when I do go to the library and computer lab on the health sciences campus I can go in, get what I need to get done and be on my way. The only slight problem is that the private rooms for studying get taken by 6 p.m., so early arrival is a must, especially during exam time. But overall, the computers are great!

Not Many Choices. There are not many choices around ECU that offer discounts to students, nor is there much variety. The places are generally the same 'bar & grill' type places which serve burgers and fries. The prices are generally the same as well, being anywhere from 5 to 7 dollars.
College Junior 2011-09-30T21:55:43Z
Many Different Ethnicities. There are many different ethnicities at East Carolina, including people from all around the world. I find that by opening up and having a huge diversity of students, it allows students to be more open and modest about other types of people, and learn their walk of life. On the other hand, we are a majority white school, which is the reason for the grade of B.

Go Out – Night life is great there is plenty to do between downtown and hanging out with friends which makes ECU an exciting place on weekends and most other times.
College Junior 2011-09-26T19:24:59Z
Apartments Are Reasonable – The apartments that offer athletic and leisure facilities are great. they come fully furnished and have individual bathrooms for each room as well as a fully equiped kitchen and internet. they also provide transportation to and from campus.

A Welcoming College Town – East Carolina University has a welcoming campus that has everything from 27 food places to bowling and movies as well as a lot of activities on campus. There is much to do off campus as well which makes it a fun college town.

My College Time – So far, college has taught me the value of time management. Ive had so much reading, but it helps. I meet people here and there, but some people are just not up to conversating.
College Junior 2011-09-10T01:35:47Z
THE BIGGIES – Campus really doesnt seem to have rules. If you go to class, that's on you, no professor is going to chase you down. Police really arent visible on campus, until you get out to the streets. Strictness is more like responsibilities on this campus.

A New "G-Vegas"? As with any university there is stress during the day, but then comes the nightlife to life! Greenville isn't necessarily equipped with the best clubs, but generally the guards will allow you to get in. Skipping stores, cliubs, bars, and dorm parties can get really fun, but even though ECU was labeled nationally as a "party-school", truth is, there are hard workers here!
College Junior 2011-09-05T22:22:15Z
About the Town – there's really not a lot to do in greenville for me mainly because i have been here all my life. Its pretty safe around the area though.
College Senior 2011-08-18T05:23:22Z
Excellent College Town – Although Greenville, NC is not a very large city, there are plenty of great restaurants, stores and cultural events. The town is completely built around ECU... you never forget that you're in Pirate Nation because purple and gold are everywhere! That is one thing I really love about the local atmosphere at ECU, the whole town fully supports the students and the university with pride.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
