Beware!

Feb 21, 2002

Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:Small college atmosphere, dorms close to classes (if on central)

Cons:Greenville, the students, parking, food, weather, dorms, ghettoness, "the party school"...

The Bottom Line: ECU is a waste of a secondary educational institution. Unless you are a nursing or teaching major, I suggest going elsewhere.


One of the few good things I can remotely think of about East Carolina is the fact that it is relatively easy to get around. With over 18,000 students, the campus is one of a small college atmosphere. It doesn't feel so crowded, unless it is around lunchtime at which you should never try to get into any cafeteria without at least a 20 minute delay. Let alone try to get to class. It is a fairly pretty campus, but some of the extra trees could be removed for parking.
If you love to get drunk, get dressed up like a 2 dollar hooker, and go downtown to get molested by marines, then ECU is the place for you! If you don't go downtown, or do frat guys, you will most likely have no life outside your room here. Just past downtown is the notorious railroad tracks, which at orientation you are warned never to cross. On the other side you will pass by (hopefully alive) houses with bars on the windows, good furniture on the front porch, and a lot of brown bagging. I have been fortunate enough to meet a few decent down to earth REAL people here, but the majority are your basic abercrombie model wannabes and their barbie type girlfriends. The school is as I said before, notorious for being a "party" school. It has one of the highest STD rates, and the people are extremely superficial. Most of them will just turn their noses up at you if you try to have a simple conversation. Because of the reputation a lot of students who come here only come because it is the only place they were accepted to. Or, just an excuse to go to college and spend daddy's money while they party and get some every night of the week. The teaching and nursing programs are excellent, but if you plan on doing anything other than that you are wasting your time here. There are very few people who place an importance in their education, and a degree from ECU will most likely be useless in comparison to other schools in the UNC system. My advice to you all: Do well in high school, don't mess up, apply early, and get into a GOOD school! Don't go to EZU!
