The Education Housing Community

Students will enjoy the typical freshman experience of dorm life with the added benefit of living with other students who are also going into the education field.

In addition to in-hall discussions and guest speakers, students in the EHC will have the Zary_Quoteopportunity to engage in a number of activities outside the University environment, attending cultural events, a teambuilding ropes course, and social activities in and around the ECU community. These activities help students become comfortable with the residential and academic aspects of University life in a short period of time.
