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 a party school. Students are treated like cattle, or children, better yet, like calves. You are there to give them money and not to receive an education. The quality of education is extremely sub-par, it is basically self-study, using textbook maker resources. It is basically the kind of education you could get online for free, except you are payting them thousands of dollars, and being treated like crap.

    ECU, everyone caries umbrellas. Amazing school pride and try to go to the football games. Try something new, you never know what may happen.

    The professors are really helpful and fun to get along with. The campus is easy to traverse and it only takes less than 30 minutes to get from one side to the other. There are wide cultural connections and welcoming atmosphere for everyone.

    East Carolina is a fun school with many different types of students. Every type of student could fit in easily and find their crowd of friends. A majority of the students are friendly and it's great that we have such a big alumni base.

    East Carolina is a good school. Everyone loves how the campus looks, it is very pretty and not too big or too small. East Carolina is family oriented, it's in a college town so that makes it better.

    I've been to ECU for an Upward Bound summer camp, so I have experienced the campus, dorms, dining hall, etc. I like that vibe that I get from this school. I'm a senior now and This is my first choice for college!

    East Carolina University has caring and passionate professors. All the faculty is helpful from the writing center, to the Pirate Tutoring Center, to the librarians, to the faculty in the computer labs. The scenery is beautiful; the fountain is my favorite part.

    This school challenges one academically as well as socially. It allows one to branch out and find new groups of friends through constant activities held on and off campus. If you have the desire to make life long connections as well as learn information about your intended career that will last a life time, then this is the school for you.
