Living-Learning Community


The College of Education Living-Learning Community (LLC) gives first-year education students a unique residential learning experience that connects College of Education faculty and staff members and classroom learning with residence life to ease the transition into the ECU community and contribute to their success within the College of Education and beyond. Students will enjoy the typical first year 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 LLC will have the opportunity to engage in a number of activities outside the University environment, attending cultural events, 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.

Adam Reyes

Hometown: Littleton, NC
High School: Halifax Academy
Intended Major: Elementary Education
Reason for Choosing Education: After being appointed to some leadership positions within my high school marching band, I taught new students how to play. It was ultimately one of my history teachers that gave me the drive to become a history teacher as well.
Why ECU: East Carolina University has always been familiar to me. It's close to home, and my brother attended here too. It seemed like the safest decision to make.
Favorite thing about ECU: I've discovered that everyone here is full of spirit when it comes to being an ECU Pirate
