The new East Carolina University Student Centers projects will change the face of both campuses. The Health Sciences Student Center broke ground in July 2015 and will be 20-22 months under construction. The main campus student center breaks ground in late fall 2015 and will be 24-26 months before completion.
A website has been created to showcase the two student centers projects. Visit www.ecu.edu/studentcenters for more information related to the history of the project, what will go inside and see the latest renderings for both facilities.
