The students at my school are not as diverse as I would have hoped. Though this is a predominantly Caucasian university, there are other ethnic groups visible. Our school encourages a strong diverse population of people of different ages, sexes, religions, sexual orientations, etc. The only person who would feel out of place at school is one that is very introverted or maybe some of the non-traditional students, in my opinion. There is something to do for almost everyone at this school. Typically, the outfits that students wear range from shirt and ties, causal business attire to sweatpants, sweatshirts, jeans, and pajamas. Work out shorts are also popular along with leggings, yoga pants and UGGS. Different types of students do interact, but a majority of them students stay with what they are familiar with. I would say most students are from North Carolina, or are dependents of the military and reside on North Carolina. Financially, it is difficult to determine what background is most prevalent, however, most of the students complain about how much they have to pay for college and tuition increases. This gives one the illusion that the people that attend ECU are not rich.


Most of the school population is made up of students who are from the South, but East Carolina is becoming more popular and known up North. I am always amazed at the people I run into at home (Pennsylvania) when I am wearing something that has East Carolina on it and someone will say I went there or my child went there and it was a great school. I feel that since most people are from the South who come here, the students are very friendly amongst each other. I know that when I am walking to classes and pass someone they will say hi or good morning, which would not happen where I am from. Since it is college and no longer high school, no one really cares what each other is wearing because there are so many different people here that you just come to accept what others are wearing. We also have many Exchange Students who come and study here which is cool because you get to learn more things about other places and get to meet all these people that you may not have been able to if they did not come here.


The students at East Carolina are basically like any other student at any other University.


I can tell that many of my classmates that range from my age up to ages much older than me are driven to succeed. Very rarely do I see slackers and it is pleasing to be around people that are like me in a sense that they contsantly strive for achievments and to be above-average. I can tell that they know thier potential (as do I about myself) to achieve big things in life.


Many of my classmates are very driven individuals. As an art major I constantly am challenged by the work reated around me and I often find the competition as a source of inspiration. They play as hard as they work and the enviroment i am enconcelled in helps me to be a better student and person.


People are definitely laid back and friendly and are willing to talk to you. The only students that may feel slightly out of place are those who trend more to Gothic styles. You don't see too many people wearing gothic clothes or makeup, so you might get some strange looks because of it. However, we do have several clubs that pertain to that, so if they joined those or found people in them, you might not feel so left out. A good way to meet people here is in class. Talk to people! Just cause your only in the class to get the grade doesn't mean you cant meet people. And maintain contact, get lunch or coffee or go workout. We have several places to do this on campus, and everyone needs to eat and stay awake (working out is optional for some folks)! Wright place is definitely a great place for this also because its all open and has many places to sit and chat.


The student population is diverse. The nationalities, cultures, personalities are all present. Any student who attends ECU will be able to make friends. Between the club sports, student organizations, and cultural centers, there is a niche for every student. Do you like video games? ECU has a student organization that meets for gamers. Do you like Anime? There's a group that gets together to watch new and old Anime shows and movies. Do you like Sports like Fencing, Basketball, Softball, etc? Or maybe you Scuba Dive? Play Scrabble all the time, or Chess? Well, ECU has groups that are interested in the same things as you. If anything, I have to say that ECU students are diverse and generally extremely accepting.


Students here seem to be very nice, there's is a place for everyone on campus so no one feels left out, there is also a good number of international students that help give the school a different perspective. For the most part there's a little bit of everything here


Students are very accepting at ECU. LGBT is a part of campus, and people are accepting of it. Most people are down-to-earth and wear casual clothes, ranging from sweats to jeans with heels. In both cases, though, it's casual to the individual. Students generally seem to be from a middle class background and are not pretentious.


They run the gamut from having a lot to say but nothing worth hearing to nothing to say at all, and yet I feel like I can be myself arround all of them.


For each semester I've noticed that the students in each classroom have a strong desire to learn and perform what they've learned through classroom discussions and projects.
