ECU Chancellor Steve Ballard has it a priority this fall to meet and talk with the student Pirate Nation. These talks range from more formalized discussions such as the Chancellor's Round Table to Lunch with the Chancellor all the way to Cookies and Chat with the Chancellor events.
Student Affairs has initiated these conversations with Dr. Ballard, key senior ECU leaders and the students to share information and seek feedback about student related issues, as well as develop stronger bonds and relationships across campus. (click here for more)
ECU Salute to Student Veterans (Video)
Military Appreciation Weekend is always a special weekend on East Carolina's campus. In large part, this is due to the numerous military installations in the state of North Carolina, but also because of the priority the Pirate Nation has placed on our servicemembers and their families. During the October 19th ECU football game against Southern Mississippi, the large crowd at Dowdy Ficklen Stadium stood and showed their gratitude and appreciation for the men and women in uniform.
A special video, produced by SA Marketing and Campus 31 Productions, for the Office of Student Veteran Services was played on the football scoreboard for the thousands in the stadium. The video features several veterans talking about being a part of the ECU family and the pride their have in their campus and school. Click the image to see this inspiring 1:20 video.
