Undergraduate degree in the Northeast, and I wouldAug 31 2014PreDent and Dentistry
Undergraduate degree in the Northeast, and I would heavily consider coming to ECU if I had to do it over. I've enjoyed the campus community and the university academic experience here far more than undergrad. The only negative is that the surrounding town, Greenville, has a tremendous amount of crime for the size of the area. The police really need to crack down on it, but I would still advise coming to ECU. Just make sure you live in the right area and don't venture too far off campus.
The M.S. program in Biology is one ofApr 27 2010Biology
The M.S. program in Biology is one of the worst I have ever seen. There are relatively few professors with which to work. The thesis project which you are required to complete is poorly explained if explained at all. Mostly, you are flying blind trying to do something and you have no idea what you are doing. There are some good professors, but mostly, the professors here are arrogant, condescending, supercilious, domineering, lecherous, and back-stabbing. The coursework is, at best, undergraduate level. The requirements are simplistic to the point of making this degree a laughing joke. The facilities are outdated, dilapidated, and everything here is on the verge of falling apart. Things are in a constant state of repair, which makes it exceedingly difficult to do anything with any consistency. Rest assured, that if any issue comes about between yourself and a professor, the professor's side will immediately be taken and your viewpoint is invalid. If given the chance, I would not have wasted my money nor my time and I am actually transferring to a different degree program.
ECU was very interested in having me attendApr 17 2007Business - Management and Administration
ECU was very interested in having me attend the University from many states away, but do not seem to be interested in making it possible to sustain myself while i am here. I hope i can pay rent and do not starve the rest of the time i am here. If you have other options, seriously consider them unless you like being skinny. I wish I would have considered other options more attentively now that they have hung me out to dry.
My years at ECU were the best of my lifeDec 16 2003Business - Management and Administration
My years at ECU were the best of my life. The professors were great to work with and helped me many times in my difficult subjects. This is a large university in a college town and the beach is only a little over an hour drive. Don't let the reputation of ECU being a party school keep you from going here. This is one BIG lie! I was in a social fraternity for 3 years. The best parties I ever went to were in Raleigh at NC State and that is the truth!!
