East Carolina University Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The most frustrating thing about ECU is how indecisive the weather chooses to be. One day it could be sunny and beautiful, and the next could be a full on rainstorm. So always have an umbrella no matter what!


The most frustrating thing about my school is simply the long walk to and from my dorm to get to my classes. I live up on "College Hill" and so it usually takes me about 20 minutes to walk across campus to get to my classroom on time. I love exercise but after a long day of class and carrying my heavy bookbag, I'm exhausted! I can only hope that next year my dorm will be closer to the academic buildings!


The old reputation that boys gave the school back in the 1980s is frustrating. They are the people who gave the party reputation to the school, but when you go beyond that, you see many people who love this school. We are all tired of the freshmen who come, get drunk, brag about it, and tell others how much of a party school this is. We love our academics, the beautiful campus, our friends we make, the activities we get to do, and the overall feel of the college.


I don't like the fact that some buildings are closed when I need to use them such as the library on Sunday mornings.


The most frustruating thing about ECU is the bus schedule. It seems like you have to wait forever for the bus to come. It is really bad around seven at night. I once waited an entire hour before the bus showed up to take me to my car. Always try to get to the bus stop early, so you will have time to get to your class and won't be late.


Dealing with the financial aid office is the most frustrating thing about East Carolina University.


The most frustrating thing about my school is that, while we have nice library facilities, the hours seem a little too limited. For example, there is a library specific to my major, and it is only open for a few hours each day of the weekend. For most people in my major, the weekend is the best time to make use of the library, due to our busy schedules during the week, but we aren't able to.


The most frustrating thing is that there are so many people. This can be irritating when trying to get to class and there are a ton of people blocking the sidewalk.


That more poeple are focus on their social life rather than their school work. I really don't like getting group projects because there is always that one person that doesn't want to do anything or doesn't do anything. I feel that we should just be graded on how people work by themselves because there is too much stress when there is a group project.


I would have to say the most frusterating thing about my school would be all of the students who do not really want to do work or go to class; the students who mess around in class and argue with teachers and interupt my class-time where I could be learning.


The most frustrating thing about this school is the parking situation. Parking is very limited and the school is not allowed to build a parking deck because of the grounds it stands on. The situation makes it harder for students to park on campus, but they are able to solve this problem by having a strong and safe bus route that transports students back and forth to and off campus.


That it is in the middle of nowhere and by your 4th year you have done everything that there is to do... However, if you have a good social group... you'll be just fine.


The most frustrating thing about school is the time between ending class and final exams. There is not a big break to allow review of notes for cumulative exams.


I do not find much to be frustrating about East Carolina. I love this school so much. If I had my way I would be here for the remaining three years of college. The only thing I find frustrating is my dorm. The dorm is very loud all the time. It is very hard to sleep, and very hard to get studying done. My dorm is also on the opposite end of campus from the library. Aside from the inconvinienceof my dorm, and its location I do not find anything to be a problem.


The most frustrating thing is not having buses run more regularly, since funding has been cut back. Another problem is that many of the sidewalks are uneven, so they flood easily when it rains heavily in the area.


very big dont know many people


FINANCIAL AID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I think that the most frustrating thing about our school is that the majority of the people here focus on going out, drinking, and hooking up. People will go downtown every night of the week and get drunk, and go to class hung over, or not even go. This is really frustrating for me because I enjoy going to my classes, and furthering my education. I pay for my own school, and when I hear about people going out all the time with their financial aid money, it is very frustrating to see what they are using it for.


The most frustrating thing about my school is dealing with the FA office. When you call them sometimes the wait is long and when they get on the phone they are very rude to you asking about your very own money! Especially around refund time. They can be very hateful. Other than that, I love my school.


Parking is difficult because there are so many more students than expected this year.


The most frustrating thing about my school is that in some of the classes no matter how hard you study it won't matter because your going to fail the class anyway. The professors make the class next to impossible to pass.


East Carolina University is a great for you to get a jump start at your future, but you need to know what you are getting yourself into. The most frustrating things happen to be not being prepared for exams or classes. University life is much different and needs an adjustment peroid. The hardest part is getting used to environment of college life and being prepared. Staying organized and studying daily are very important for keeping up with your schedule.


The financial aid office is slow.


managing social activites with school activiteis


Lecture halls tend to be large. Sometimes it is difficult to arrange meetings with Professors - especially during busy times on campus. Lately, I've gone to class only to find a note on the board that class has been cancelled. That's frustating!


Limited on merit scholarships.


Trying to get help from staff such as heads of departments or receptionists that simply will not listen to what you as a student have to say. When you try to get special added to a class the staff simply does not do its job on helping out students.


Parking is almost impossible but the school does a great ob of providing bus services to the major apartment complex locations.


Financial aid is not very helpful. I have to take out loans for school and they always seem to mess them up. This one person says one thing and another person says something else. It becomes very frustrating.


My major calls for a lot of extra supplies and I don't have that much money, so sometimes it's difficult to keep up because I simply don't have the supplies.
