Student Life Information
Academics are a really important piece, but students must also explore the "social side" of college in order to be successful. It is important that students get connected to their campus and graduate with demonstrated skills in leadership, communication, problem-solving, etc. in order to be marketable in today's economy. These skills are learned through involvement in student life. Getting involved on campus earns big rewards. ECU offers many ways to get involved.
