Guys & Girls:
Most people at ecu dress fairly nice, when I say most I mean about half. everybody has their own style, i'd say ECU girls are extremely hot though.

Living on Campus – Living on campus is great, you are close to downtown, close to your classes. The dining halls are right next to where you live. there is always something to do on campus ranging from concerts to laser tag to movies. the only bad part about living on campus is sharing a room. everything else is thoroughly enjoyable no matter where you live.

As ECU is a fairly large college, approximately 28,000 students, there is something for everyone when it comes to religion/sexual orientation, political beliefs etc. All ethnicities are equally and fairly treated.

Off campus housing @ ECU is abundant. The townhouse communities are constructed with the college student in mind. Most communities have washer/dryers in units, private bath for each bedroom and enormous swimming pools as well as gym facilities. Anyone looking for off campus housin has a large selection of single family homes to townhouses to choose from.

There is always something going to keep students busy. There is something for everybody. I hear that there alot of student parties in the area. However, I haven't personally been to any.

I have only been at ECU for two semesters. I love this college! I wish that I would have came here right after high school. I have just had to manage my social life apart from my academics. It is a wonderful college and I would suggest ECU for anyone that wants to pursue an education and have a good time while doing so.

East Carolina Univeristy offers a lot of parking. There are a lot of parking spaces at the stadium and there are buses that run every 10 minutes from the stadium to campus. Campus parking permits are cheap compared to other colleges. Also, the cost of tickets are extremely low. There really isn't a need for a car on campus becasue the building are all close together and the buses will take you where you need to go.

Health & Safety:
East Carolina Univerist is a safe campus. On campus there are several blue light telephones that can be used in case of an emergency. Also ECU provides "safe ride" which is a bus ride to and from campus at night. Police are always protrolling the campus and making sure things are okay. When I'm on campus i alwasy feel 100% safe.

There are many transportations at East Carolina University. The best option is the buses that the school provides. It takes students to and from class from their apartments, dining halls, campus, dorms, and the the recreation center.

There is no need to take your personal computer to class. East Carolina has an excellent source of computers and internet usage. The wireless internet connection is highspeed. All the computers in the labs are all brand new apple computers. The labs all have wireless printers.

Not Much – They don't really have much no other school also wouldn't have. A career center, clubs, on-campus jobs, and varsity sports. It's pretty much what any college student would expect so everything is pretty solid.

Pretty Typical – They don't search your rooms which give you freedom. They will check you if you act suspicious however. The police are pretty reasonable about how to arrest people and wouldn't talk to somebody unless they had a reason to appear to be up to no good.

Very Nice – Different kinds of restaurants and buffets that have all sorts of deals for people of all backgrounds and financial needs. My favorite being Cookout which is fast, cheap, and have a distinct North Carolina style of cooking food.

Zero Tolerance for Drugs – ECU has zero tolernce for drugs. Alcohol is more prevelant than anything but as far as drugs, smoking is more popular activity as well.

Pirate Football – All of eastern North Carolina gets excited during football season at ECU. Alumni alre always around, the sea of students decked out in purple and gold, and the overall atmosphere of the games is enough to give anybody some school spirit.

What a Party School – When some people think about ECU, "party school" automatically comes to mind. While the nightlife and party scene for ECU stuents has been recognized by Playboy and other "distinguished" lists, some students, like myself, attend ECU because of the academic reputation.

Campus Living Is the Best – I lived on campus my freshman year and will be returning this year to the same dorm. It was so convenient to simply fall out of bed and go to class, which was usually in a very close location to my dorm. The dining halls are usually full of good food and the activities on campus are always varied and fun. The cost is expensive but in the long run probably worth it.

Interesting Courses and Helpful Professors – The courses at East Carolina University are always very interesting and there is always a variety of subjects that you can take. There are also usually several different sections of it that you can work into any schedule. My workload was not too heavy and it allowed me to participate in other activities outside of academics such as those through my Teaching Fellow's Scholarship.

Labs Are Crowded but Helpful – The computer labs at East Carolina University are large and very easy to get to, however it seems like there are always quite a few people in them doing unnecessary things. The wireless access is very unreliable in the dorms, but is perfect around campus. Printing is free and very accessible but it is in the same labs that are so crowded. I have used the printing a lot over the past year.

Other Places – There is more to eat in Greenville and way better stuff for the dining hall. The thing is i have already paid for all my meals and need to use them.

I hated eating at the dining hall because they cooked the same thing everyday and it all started tasting the same at the end.

A Crowded Town – Greenville has probably the biggest crowd of people i have ever been around. The town it is in is a ran down town and mostly black people live their. Also in Pitt county there is Pitt community college and J.H Rose high school. We are known as a big "party school" but it is what you make it.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
