Out of state tuition is gruesome in this economy! But there is truly no where I'd rather be than an ECU pirate!

    ECU is overall a remarkable school to attend. There are a numerous amount of opportunities associated with this university, both academically and socially. As long as you pursue and take advantage of all the various programs and assistance offered, there is little room to fail.

    East Carolina University is a school that is known by a lot of people, the main reason being is that it is a party school, but there is a lot more to it than people may actually be knowledgeable about. The minority rate is extremely high at ECU and is mostly populated by females, which almost makes people happy to see that women are the majority. There are many clubs and fraternities/sororities on campus, lots of places to eat, a numerous amount of activities and generally a nice community of people.

    East Carolina University was not my first choice, but due to certain circumstances I applied and was accepted into the school within three days, and I must say this was one of the best decisions I could've made. My professors, advisors, and all those who were instrumental in my serious time of need during my first year, were super helpful and supportive. ECU has a lot of caring and compassionate people ever on their campus, and I am extremely proud to be a pirate!

    East Carolina University is more than what society makes it out to be, a beautiful school. Not only does it offer a plethora of majors and opportunities, it is very a very opportunistic place. Definitely worth attending for great academics and an even better community of people.

    A great school with a good budget for the less fortunate. Family oriented school that you will make you feel wanted. A place to call a home away from home.

    ECU is a school that seems to genuinely care about it's students. There are many resources available to you. The community here is, in my opinion, the best part about going to school here.
