i have heard good reviews from past students, who had attended ecpi. an administrator from ecpi gave me a tour of the university and told me good things of the program have enrolled in. i am looking forward in graduating on 5/2013 as a certified medical assistant.
Tips for prospective students
education is the key to a better future. you can not earn anything without working hard for it. the key in making through any school is being discipline and determined to accomplish your set goals.
Academic Rigor
you should set a high standard when it comes to your education. always strive to do the very best in accomplishing your set goals.
Dorm Life
it is good to get to know other students, but do not be a follower but a leader. you should always use your time wisely to ensure that you can accomplish any set goals.
Food and Dining
i think that students should eat a healthy meal to help them be mentally and physically fit for school.
What to do for fun
i do think that students should take some time to relax, so that they can be rested before coming back to school.

ECPI University gives the opportunity of being yourself while learning in an amazing environment. The professors there have inspired me and shown me that I can achieve more than I had ever expected. I give this school six out of five stars and recommend it to everyone.
Tips for prospective students
When choosing a college or major, choose not only with your mind but your heart. Its is important to major in something you're passionate about; remember that saying: �Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.� -Confucius
Academic Rigor
The college professors expect nothing but the best from each of their students. Although this may sound as if you would be pressured that is not the case. They help every student on not only their strengths, but their weaknesses. There's only room for improvement.
Dorm Life
The only reason there is a one star rating for dorm life is because it is not applicable. At this time, dorms are not available for my school
Food and Dining
Students have their own break room and a very beautiful outside scene to get fresh air when needed. Also, there is a very convenient cafe in the neighbouring building.
What to do for fun
Every day is an adventure at ECPI. For the first time in my entire school life I actually look forward to going to class. They also have student appreciation days which provides food and fun games.
Bang for the buck
The thing I love about my school is that everything is included with the tuition. I pay a hundred dollars a month and that goes toward my tuition. I don't have to worry about buying my books or anything else.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
When you pick a field of study at ECPI these people become family. We have so many inside jokes and great memories, it's going to be sad when I have to leave. I remember two entire classes went on a Chipotle break.
Great for these types of students
ECPI is a great University for any one who wants to get school done and over with. You get a bachelors degree in two and a half years, you can't get any better than that.
Clubs and Activities
I wish I could rate five stars in this department but there aren't as many activities as I personally would like there to be. I must say they do try, and are always open to new ideas.
Campus Safety
The school is in a very busy location and there are plenty of lights and cameras around the building. For the night students, they have a security guard to watch the building.

ECPI offers many graduate programs; Business Management, IT Management, Health Administration and many other programs. Students have the chance to graduate with their bachelors degree in just 2.5 years. ECPI is a fast paced school that allows you to learn a lot in just a short period of time!
Tips for prospective students
My personal advice for prospective ECPI students is to have a career plan set in their mind and go for the degree that best suites them, set short term and long term goals for their future and finally, students should study efficiently and gain as much knowledge as possible from of each class they attend.
Academic Rigor
The faculty and staff at ECPI truly care about the success of each student and will show concern if any days of class are missed. The rules and regulations are necessary to insure a high rate of successful graduates at ECPI. The rules and regulations are firm, but are not unbearably strict.
Dorm Life
Unfortunately ECPI does not offer dorms for students at this time.
Food and Dining
ECPI has a newly built cafe that offers breakfast and lunch items, as well as tasty snacks and drinks. The students from the Culinary Institute dedicate their time and culinary skills in the cafe, offering students and staff an assortment of delicious homemade breakfast and lunch menu items made from scratch, daily. From bacon, egg and cheese on a homemade biscuit to fresh chicken salad wrapped in a tortilla, A+ food is available all day long!
What to do for fun
ECPI has many different clubs students can become involved in, allowing them to get acquainted with other students and enjoying outside festive events planned by each individual group. Students can also join in on the fun in the world of gaming. Students interested can play in gaming tournaments, learn to build their own games and more!
Bang for the buck
Although ECPI is a private college with pricey tuition, the opportunity for loans and grants are available. In comparison to other colleges, ECPI's bachelor's program beats the time you would normally spend at a traditional college, by offering students a bachelors degree in 2.5 years! The money is worth all the time ECPI saves each student.
