B-GLAD (Bisexuals, Gays, Lesbians, and Allies for Diversity) is a campus organization that strives to raise awareness and promote tolerance of diverse sexual orientations and tendencies on campus and in the community. Membership is open to all students, staff, and faculty, regardless of their sexual preferences.
ECU has several active political groups, including Americans for Informed Democracy (AID), College Democrats, College Republicans, Ducks Unlimited, Model United Nations, North Carolina Student Legislature, as well as a Student Government Association.
The tuition for four years of undergrad studies at ECU, especially for in-state students, is cheaper than one year at some private schools in North Carolina and many out-of-state public colleges and universities, which means that ECU is economically accessible to students from a greater range of economic backgrounds. Students from middle- and upper-middle-class backgrounds seem to outnumber students from extremely wealthy or extremely low-income families.
Most Common Religions
Christianity is among the most common religions on campus, though Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism all have representative student organizations. There is also the Unitarian Universalist Campus Ministry, which operates on campus.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Academic and social groups and Greek organizations that consist primarily of minorities are visible and active on campus. Some of the major events sponsored by minority groups are the step shows, the Minority Ball, and the Annual Pow-Wow. ECU’s minority and intercultural clubs include the Intercultural Student Senate, the Minority Association of Pre-Health Students, NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), the Arab Student Union, the Asian Student Association, the Black Student Union, the East Carolina Native American Organization, the Indian Pirates Association, the International Student Association, the Italian Club, Japan League, the National Society of Minorities in Hospitality, the Student Association of Latino-Spanish Affairs, and Thespians for Diversity.
