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.

Maddie Adams

Hometown: Greenville, NC
High School: D.H. Conley High School
Intended Major: Special Education
Reason for Choosing Education: I want to do everything in my power to help make someone else’s quality of life the best it can be. Whether it be educational skills, day to day life skills, or social skills, I love the thought of giving my future students the tools and support needed to have a life they never thought was possible.
Why ECU: I grew up eagerly waiting for my turn to be a student at ECU. Coincidentally, ECU has one of the best education programs in the state. Choosing to attend ECU was one of the best decisions, because I am achieving the dream of being a Pirate while receiving top-notch training to be a teacher.
Favorite thing about ECU: One of my favorite things about ECU is seeing the amount of pride the students, staff, and surrounding community take in being a Pirate.
