East Carolina University Graduate Reviews

9 reviews
East Carolina University is a wonderful university. The professors across the board genuinely care about their students and their success. I earned both a BA in history and a BS in middle grades education as an undergraduate student, and both the history and education programs are amazing. I am now back at ECU pursuing my MA in history because ECU has one of the best history programs! Students who want to attend a university for strong academics, wonderful professors and courses, and numerous extra-curricular events and opportunities, should look into ECU.

East Carolina University gives students many opportunities to further their career or education. The football games in Dowdy-Ficklin Stadium, during the fall semester, are such a great time with all the traditions and tailgating. I did have some trouble with advisors giving the correct advice, or not knowing the answer to your question. I would advise doing some of your own research on the classes needed to take for your major; just in case you get a bad advisor. East Carolina charges students a fee for going over the required 140 credit hours; even if you are a transfer student, who transfered with 72 credit hours instead of 64.
I like ECU but there is entirely too much construction and currently no places to eat on campus. We have been paying for our new student center for months with the promise it would be done months ago, but it has yet to be finished yet. And as a result we are starving as on campus residents. Also they have recently cut cable campus wide... so thats, that.
