ECPI University is constantly trying to improve its standards. Each term, they would ask its students to participate in surveys to gather reviews of the courses they took, the faculty, and its facilities to ensure that each and every students are satisfied with the experience at their institution and that they are focused in their studies and that they receive the best education they can possibly receive from the institution.

I had a great time at this school. I have never been more challenged in my entire life, and I had studied for years at other prestigious private colleges before choosing ECPI. I wish I had known about ECPI first. Not only were the classes challenging but they were also accelerated, so I learned something new every day. What I learned in one 5-hour class at ECPI took a week to learn at other colleges. My professors were all about hands-on learning which really helped me succeed in my field. They also struck up great debates and conversations which kept my classmates and I fully aware and engaged for the duration of class, and taught us new ideas to consider. I also loved that my professors didn’t teach out of textbooks. They taught us to research and learn for ourselves using scholarly and peer-reviewed sources so that our learning experience wasn’t biased. The only negative experience that I encountered was the homework load. I worked three jobs while going to school full time and had many stress-caused mental breakdowns. There were a few times when they only gave us two days to write a 10-12 page paper on top of having writing assignments due, while taking two other classes that also had the same work load. It’s what you get for accelerated learning. I think I almost passed out a couple of times , but I graduated with a 3.98 GPA and made it through without dying! That’s a definite plus! Even though the homework was exhausting, I would still honestly recommend ECPI to anyone interested in the Homeland Security/ Criminal Justice field. I don’t regret one second at this school!
