Hello, My name is Latrice Brothers and I am currently a student at Elizabeth City State University. I'm a junior majoring in Aviation Science and I can honestly say that I am truly proud to be a mighty Viking. Since my freshman year I have met amazing individuals that want to see me grow and move beyond the university. College is a great and fun experience but its not just about the parties. Being in the Aviation program my advisors are hardworking people who don't mind going the extra mile to make sure that each student in that department are getting the help they need to graduate within their 4 years.
Review Elizabeth City State University
Elizabeth City is a small unique campus. I like how there are friendly people and pretty much everyone knows each other. some down falls is that sometimes the financial aid can be messed up and some of the advisors dont tell you things until its your senior year when your about to graduate. other than that, ECSU is an ok place
For a small school, this school has truly impressed me. I have regained my passion and strive for my interest and talents in Mathematics. I received my Bachelors Degree here and I am pursuing my Masters now. My teachers have a strong interest in fueling my passion and raising me higher and higher in my studies and intellect in this field. They believe in me and in turn it makes me believe in myself more and more.
