Why did you choose ECU?
I chose ECU for project STEPP, which stands for Supporting Transition and Education Through Planning and Partnership. I wanted a real college experience at a larger university. Project STEPP is designed to encourage and support students to pursue college degrees by providing academic support.
Project STEPP has helped me maintain good grades, and they have been a great support group for me. It is very personalized, and the program also provides tutors for us.
What is your best ECU memory?
Sorority recruitment every year is my favorite because I love meeting the new girls who join. I will miss that when I graduate.
You are in a sorority? Tell me about that.
I am part of Alpha Delta Pi sorority. I wish everyone could experience Greek life. It has allowed me to meet so many people. I like being involved on campus. Our philanthropy is the Ronald McDonald House, and we do a lot with that. We work a lot within the community. Truly, I have met some of my very best friends through the sorority. Being in Greek life is just a really good, positive experience.
What have you learned from being a part of Greek life?
I have learned that are a lot of different types of people, but we are all here for the same reason. We all are all close, and we have that common reason we are here.
How has being at ECU changed you?
Being at ECU has made me a more confident person. I feel the support of ECU all throughout Greenville, on or off campus. Everyone loves their Pirates, and that’s a great thing! I have learned so much at ECU.
How do you think ECU prepares students for their careers?
We get a lot of practice and preparation for our careers. We are taught actual things that will happen in a job setting, whether it’s interviews or going out into the real world.
