  • Most of the dorms are what you would find at any university. I would say that SOME of the buildings have the worst RAs and visitation rules. People lose visitation…

    The food at Elizabeth City State University is ok. But there is never nothing new on the schedule. And we do have a Checkers in our student center. overall I would say the food is good.

    I honestly avoid the cafe at all costs. The only meal I enjoy from the cafe is breakfast which I often miss. Some lunch/dinner foods are alright but fried chicken Wednesday gets old after a while.

    The Cafeteria is busy but the service is very quick and the staff are very courteous. The environment makes you feel like your eating dinner with your family at home. The food is hot and cooked very well and the lines seem to move quickly while waiting for your food.

    Greek life is closed minded, there should be more Greek organizations that cater to different types of people.

    Greek life is one of the most important organizations at Elizabeth City State University because of the respect and interset the students have in joining. The sororities and fraternities have their own section within the university displaying they symbol of the sorority of fraternity their in. Many people respect them because they make the school look good but also brings a sense of pride to the school as well. Their is an no hazing policy which prevents the sorority of fraternity of performing an acts of abusive toward the pledgee. The sororities and fraternities are not hard to join and once you cross over you enter into a sisterhood and brotherhood no one can replace.

    I would never recommend Greek Life. The things that they participate in are questionable. It has fallen far from what Greeks should be. It is all about popularity and being cruel to outsiders.

    The Greek life at ECSU is awesome. They have the Divine Nine. The Greeks all help make the school what it is and host a lot of events that take place on the campus. You can help Greeks with community service events. They always approach you with respect and give ECSU its' name when traveling off campus. Focus on your school work and then consider Greek life.
