East Central is a good size college which makes finding classrooms a breeze, and if you're lost, people are friendly enough to point the way or take you. Also, you might see a tea-cup sized pig following one student along the way. The teachers are down to earth and so are the students, making it easy to get along with anyone. Also, the faculty staff is very friendly and will help you with your problems if they occur. Not to mention, their mascot is a tiger. Come on! Oh, and there is a park surrounding a pond nearby and two coffee shops just off of main street. So if you need a quick caffeine fix, the campus is just small enough to walk there and get to class.
Review East Central University
I'm a freshman here at ECU. My girlfriend is a sophomore and my mother attended here as well as many of my friends. Its a great small school and I've lived in the town for most of my life. What I want to see change is to show us what to do. As freshmen we are required to take a 5 week course to help us know people and get around but who shows us how to get through the lunch lines? Who shows us how to fill out a nurse form? Who explains how to get where you need to go or which dorm halls are known for /extra/ rowdy boys? They don't teach us this and unless you luck out and bring a friend to school with you, or you're even luckier and make some new friends, no one shows you the ropes. And you get in trouble for not knowing. It's intimidating, overwhelming, and a tad ridiculous.
There is a lot of diversity on our small campus! People from all countries come here to go to school, and they are accepted by the other students, no questions asked. Since the people are from all over, there are many different races with their own religions, but no one acts differently toward either of those. It is pretty widely accepted that some people here have different sexual orientations than normal, and nobody i am around really talks about politics, but the economic background is definitely varied but causes no issues or challenges.
