East Central University is a great school! They have amazing professors that really care about each of their students. The administration of the university though lacks in almost every department. They lose documents, there’s no communication between departments, they don’t do anything in the best interest of the students.

I have loved coming to ECU! The people are so caring and friendly. The community is involved with the students providing entertainment and opportunities to make connections. The possibilities from going to ECU are huge! The have a wide variety of degree options and the ability to get you into grad schools if you choose.
I loved everything about ECU. From professors to resources offered, it's awesome! I always loved eating in the cafeteria because there was always a wide variety of food to choose from. There was a variety of nationalities on campus so you're always meeting someone new and learning about new cultures which is always fun and interesting.
