Am learning a lot
ECSU is a fantastic school and I'm really learning a lot that will def help me improve my outlook.
Am enjoying being here
There are some slow times but overall I love being there. And I really now call it my second home which in time has became my number one place.
Bang for the buck
Yes, ECSU is the only school that has help uplift the spirits of Northeastern North Carolina. The tuition is the least in the state, and you would think that the quality in education is low but it's not.
Tips for prospective students
Don't be discourage! Be your own leader and create your fun!

Learning here shouldn't ever be a problem. There as plenty of resources and people here to help you. Even if you don't want to go to your professor, ECSU has many different peer tutoring sessions. The only way to fail at ECSU is from being lazy and not doing what you have to do to get yours,
Am enjoying being here
I love being at ECSU. ECSU has so many events for students and their friends and families. There is an unlimited number of things to do around campus, whether academic or social. There is one time when ECSU is dead accept when students are putting their minds together to think of a new master plan.
Bang for the buck
Most definitely. I would recommend anybody to come join the ECSU family. Viking Pride !
Tips for prospective students
