East Carolina University Reviews
East Carolina is a great four-year North Carolina college that specializes in nursing, business, fine arts, and music programs. The Honors College is growing in size and popularity, and offers unique research and networking opportunities for members. ECU also is one of the more generous North Carolina schools considering financial aid and more relaxed entrance requirements, giving students a chance at pursuing a higher education. Despite ECU's avid party life and prevalent Greek culture, you can expect to make the best of your experience and get a quality education!
My experience at East Carolina University has been amazing. After my Freshman year attending a different University, I did not know where I wanted to go and if I would be making the right decision on transferring. Once I decided on East Carolina and begun my sophomore year, I definitely did not have a doubt in my mind that I finally chose the right school. I love my classes and professors as well as the opportunities for tutoring that ECU provides. Student life and activities always have something to be involved with whether that is sports, clubs, or on campus concerts. Looking back I ask myself why I didn't pick ECU in the first place! Definitely a home away from home.
East Carolina is a great school! I am a current transfer from another four year university and wish that I had chosen East Carolina from the get go. There are about 300 plus different clubs and organizations to get involved with, and a ton of research opportunities if that is more of your style. The people are come from all parts of the world and are very friendly. East Carolina has professors that care and want you to succeed, and the night life isn't too bad either.
