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 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.
The minute I decided to look into this school everyone was extremely helpful. I talked someone over the phone, and got great and information and resources. I set up a tour of the campus which was gorgeous and easy to find my way through. The tour guide was cheerful as well as question ready. She answered all the questions she could, and the ones she couldn't gave detailed contacts to get the answers we seek. Overall my experience was wonderful, and knowledgeable of the school.
