Elizabeth City State has been a wonderful experience so for each and every one of the professors are helpful and motivational. That push students to excel in what they do. In my opinion it is a very good school, the environment is quiet, students are eager to learn and everyone is very friendly. Not to mention the programs are extremely intellectual and better prepare students to be future doctors, educators, engineers, entrepreneurs and more. If I could change anything about Elizabeth City State University, it would have to be the classrooms. I personally taught the classes were over capacity and students were able to move around where they were more comfortable and engage efficiently.

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.
Elizabeth City State University is a college experience that will influence anyone to be successful in there career goals. Student life and academics of the school are a breed of superb professionalism along with a neutral atmosphere to fit any one person's personality. It is a fun adventure for someone to who has a diverse mind set and is willing adhere to social guidelines.
