The uniqueness East Carolina University offers is student enthusiasm. From the outside one would think such enthusiasm revolves around the sports team known as the “Pirates”. This Pirate spirit surpasses the athletic division of the university. It is the heart, soul and power of East Carolina uniqueness. As a first generation college student and limited funds to invest in my future, East Carolina University provided the appropriate affordability and recognition of experience previously obtained as a transfer student.

The engineering program at my school is very personal compared to other schools. Many engineering programs are very large and impersonal, containing thousands of students. The schools tend to not care much about students who are struggling, and only provide opportunity for those who succeed. Engineering at East Carolina University is designed to support engineering students, and help them succeed. Our program is much smaller than most engineering programs; therefore, it is much easier to get one-on-one assistance from professors. This small community combined with the supportiveness of the professors creates a very positive academic atmosphere.


What is the most unique quality that ECU has compared to other universities is that one-of-a-kind art projects that are spread across the campus, such as sculptures, the water fountain, and the library's steps that make noise when you walk up them.


East Carolina is such a great school. I feel like I have learned so much just from being there my first semster as a freshman. The teachers do not look at you as a number like other schools might.

My school is unique from other Universities because of our tradition. Everyone that lives in Greenville, North Carolina bleeds purple and gold. This is the Pirate Nation; the town is built around the University. The Campus is tiny for the amount of students that attend the University because of our huge off-campus living, so there is a lot of interaction and getting to know one another. Personally, I wouldn’t say Disney World is the happiest place in the world, East Carolina University is. Everyone is always in a great mood and strives for the best.


Locating coast and the helpful of all the staff.


East Carolina University is a very unique schools conpared to other schools I have consifered. There are many fraternities and sororities at ECU. At most schools these people only associate with one another. They do not branch out and get involved with people who are not in fraternities or sororities. But ECU has a small campus and allows every one to get along and mingle with one another.


The most unique thing about East Carolina University is the fact that they have the third largest transit system in North Carolina and its 98{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} run by students.




I found that ECU was located in a great classic college town. Everywhere you look there is pirate pride. Most of the professor attended ECU themselves and also carry the pirate pride.

Being a person the enjoys the outdoors and the ?go green? idea this part of ECU was very meaningful to me.


My school has been shown on tv as one of the top ten party schools in the nation. Honestly we do party there but not more than any other school. None of the parties are on campus. All of them are off campus at peoples apartments and homes. My school itself is a very good school, we have great majors and great social experiences.

One of the main things that I love about my school is how willing people are to help others when they need it. I noticed this when I visited my school at both of their open houses and again at new student orientation during the summer. Experiencing this made me even more excited about going to this school. Everyone is always willing to help. I never really got that vibe from the other schools I considered. My school has a history of service to the community, so I believe the people here embrace this to the fullest.


East Carolina University offers a nursing program that was well-known and well respected compared to other colleges that I considered. ECU seemed to have a strong concern for the success of their students and in general the school makes you feel very welcomed.

Janitors, school administrators, even food service staff will wish students good luck on their final exams. Everyone knows everybody, the campus is a tight-knit community. We have prayer boxes on campus, fundraisers, and community service events. The schools works really hard to get kids involved and bring entertainment to campus.
