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.

Alvin Taylor

Hometown: Hookerton, NC
High School: Greene Central High School
Intended Major: Music Education
Reason for Choosing Education: I want to promote the growth and wellness of tomorrows youth while also inspiring them through the power of music. Music is my passion. I love playing, listening, and learning about music so its only natural that I want to share my love with the next generation.
Why ECU: I chose to attend ECU’s College of Education because not only is it recognized as the best education program in the state, it is also the hometown college. As I grew up I had the privilege of watching the college grow as well. I also felt I could use my experiences to improve myself and leave the program better then I found it.
Favorite thing about ECU: I was genuinely surprised about how much of a family I have found through my friends and colleagues. At first the whole college experience was overwhelming but as soon as I got to know the people on my hall, as well as my advisors, I have come to find that this college is home to the most amazing people I have ever met.
