I am a 2nd Bacc.BrightPreMed and Medical
I am a 2nd Bacc. student who has finished a Masters at another school. Before ECU, I went to private colleges. ECU doesn't teach. Students are self taught. Professors moral is low and they act like they do not believe students will come to class - THEY DO NOT TEACH THE MATERIAL! They are unapproachable and students are treated like cattle that are there to give them money and should be grateful for the priviledge. There is an over reliance on textbook maker websites and powerpoint. This college is not even trying. I would never hire anybody from ECU, knowing what I know now. Calling this a university is a joke. This is a money making machine to enrich the faculty, who could care less about doing their jobs.

If you are from a big city thenQuite BrightPreMed and Medical
If you are from a big city then do not go here. The hood (I swear Lil Wayne's twins go here), rednecks, snooty middle class sorority girls, average-looking frats who probably got a bid because they knew how to dress well, dumb nerds, Indians who got full rides and decided their Chapel Hill acceptance letter may require them to do more than just lift a finger, and meat heads go here. Wow, cramming a lot of unintelligent random asses makes this university diverse... Wrong, this place is segregated socially more than "diverse". I can't walk to class without some trashy girl with hickies littering her neck stare me down. As a biology major from the big city, I came to ECU because I only tried my final two years in high school, realizing a 4.5 was attainable. I plan to transfer after my first semester with a 3.8. I teach myself all the course work. I go to class only for the clicker that takes your attendance. And for the only professor that seems to care about students excelling and getting the most out of his class, which is crammed with rednecks aspiring to get into medical school. What a joke!!! Want to hear what the professors are actually saying? Sit up front because everyone else in the back will be talking about the slam piece they scored last night, how this sorority chick had a threesome, or how wasted they were the past 3 weeks. I walk the campus feeling like I am floating and enduring limbo. The people here are like bland noodles; no personality, creativity, wit, or talents besides taking shots w/o chasers. Whoop, da-fucking woop. How about, take a shot of reality and do more than waste your parent's money getting a below average undergraduate degree from this place. The majority of students hang around here with barely a 2.0 GPA scoping out the next dirty club and ratchet ass they can get to. I believe the only times I've said I like ECU was when I was wasted at a house party teetering on my heels and watching the craziest acts of drunkenness go on in front of me. If you want to treat this place like a sociological experiment, be my guest. Come here for a shitty education, straight A's if you put three hours of effort into your day, and drink/bang a few "bad bitches" cause "bandz a mak hur dance".

I'm looking forward to going back to ECUQuite BrightPublic Health
I'm looking forward to going back to ECU in August. I had the time of my life my first year. The 10 best tings about ECU include:

1) The campus is beautiful
2) The beach / recreation area near campus and closeness to the OBX and other NC beaches
3) Attending football and basketball games, there is nothing like it. Plus tailgating.
4) Quality of Academic Programs, professors have been really helpful and available
5) Many out of state students (I'm from Brooklyn, NY and met many students from Jersey, PA, DC, Maryland, VA, Delaware, Connecticut, and other places during my first year).

6) Diversity
7) Social Life, it is easy to make friends, everyone is friendly. It is like a family, we are all Pirates!

8)Affordable compared to schools in NY.
9)On campus actives and parties
10)Dorms and food on and near campus, great selection and choices!I am happy with my decision to become a Pirate. Great School. Greenville is a small but growing town of about 100,000. The city just needs to revitalize its downtown core, which have many bars, clubs, and restaurants; and build a better mall and hotels downtown. Other than that, I have no gripes about my decision.
