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.
The teachers really know what they are talking about and really help you and want you to succeed. Having teachers that really want you to succeed is so helpful, they have no problem staying after with you to help you with anything you don’t understand. Something I would like to see change is admin becoming more organized. It’s really hard to keep a job while going to school because they give you your schedule sometimes the day before classes start. It’s hard to make any plans and you can’t really give your employer your schedule until it’s too late and they have made the schedule already.
