What made you choose ECU?
Reputation! The one thing that made me choose ECU was the great reputation that it has developed over its 100 years in existence. I knew that I wanted to be an educator, and I knew that I wanted to be a great musician. It was due to the reputation of ECU's College of Education and School of Music that I knew, hands down, that this was the place for me. What more could I ask for than coming to a university that has had experience in graduating so many great musicians and educators?
What is your best ECU memory?
All my time here at ECU has been a great memory, but if I were to narrow it down, it would have to be my participation in the UNC in Washington Program. I represented ECU in Washington, D.C. while interning at the National Education Association during the summer of 2007. I lived in Washington for 11 weeks in an apartment in the heart of Capitol Hill, directly behind the Supreme Court. I worked on various educational projects, independently and with other interns, while attending meetings and hearings on Capitol Hill. I also got to see a number of important people such as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senators Hillary Clinton and John Edwards, and President George W. Bush.
What would you tell someone considering ECU?
ECU is a place where students can enjoy the benefits of a great education, studying and working with some of the greatest faculty in the kind of learning atmosphere where the students and faculty get to know each other. Here, you are part of a community where you get to play a key role in planning your future, where everyone wants you to succeed, and where a sense of pride is felt by everyone. ECU is continuously growing and expanding academically and as a campus. Come and be part of a university that is evolving into something tremendous. ECU is a university where “the sky is the limit” and where everyday is a new experience.
