I graduated summa cum laude from ECPI University’s Virginia Beach campus in 2017, with a B.A.S. in Homeland Security. I thoroughly enjoyed the speed of the classes. What I learned at other colleges in one month, we learned in a week at ECPI. I have never been more challenged by my eduacation than I was at this school.

My professors taught us how to conduct real research and how think for ourselves, rather than relying on the media for information. The professors weren’t just there to click through PowerPoints and make us do our homework...they were passionate about their work and were highly skilled in their craft.

I highly recommend this school for any Criminal Justice major looking to make a life for themselves in law enforcement and federal agencies. ECPI will prepare you to be professionally ready for your career.

I enjoyed mostly everything about ECPI University including the staff and students. I loved how the teachers will make sure you know the material taught before you walk out the door. And if you don't they offer tutoring for students who struggle with the material told. I enjoyed that my peers and teachers give me positive and/or negative feedback on my work. I dislike that the prices in the cafeteria are pricey ,especially, for a private campus where students have to pay so much for tuition already. That's something I believe the school should change if they could because I believed it'll help students save money.
My experience has been wonderful. The students and the teachers are very helpful and make u feel like you are at home. Academically it has opened eyes to many different areas of work experience and has given people a better life. I love ECPI and I would recommend it to anyone. They have online classes also that help with your already working schedule. The professors online are just as concerned as the one on campus. They want you to succeed in school and in life. They are there to prepare you for your new career and the discipline you are going to need. So ECPI University is a great opportunity to grow, and I think you should try it.
