ECU Orientation goes mobile!Submitted by Karen Smith - Student Transitions
Students and parents attending New Student Orientation this summer will have access to a mobile guide to aid in their experience. Guidebook, a free mobile app, can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or the Android Marketplace.
Through the app, participants can access the New Student Orientation student and family schedules, a campus map, a list of Campus Resources, a New Student Checklist, and a way to upload and share photos on the app and through social media. The app, which also includes the updated Plunge into Purple (PIP) schedule, will be available into the fall semester for students to access. PIP is a series of programs and events in the first 4-6 weeks of each semester designed to engage and connect first year students to campus.
One of the features is a customizable schedule that allows a student to select events or sessions they wish to attend, which allows them to create their own schedule complete with reminders.
During orientation, participants will be informed of the option of the app during check-in, on the paper schedules, and in the opening session.
Interested in taking a look? Starting June 3, you can visit the mobile website (m.guidebook.com) or download the free Guidebook app to your device and then select the “Schools” category and search for East Carolina University.
Student Affairs Marketing customized the Guidebook app icons to give it a proper ECU feel.
The Office of Student Transitions is very excited to offer this option to our new students and guests!

2014-15 SGA Officers Sworn InPress Release from Crystal Baity – ECU News Services
An East Carolina University junior and three sophomores will lead the university’s Student Government Association for the 2014-2015 school year.
Junior Michael King of Prince George, Virginia; sophomore Jake Srednicki of Mahopac, New York; sophomore Kaitlyn Dutton of Greenville; and sophomore Katie Swanner of Huntersville all said they are excited to get started in their new positions.
As president, King will also serve on the ECU Board of Trustees as an ex-officio member and said he is looking forward to the leadership experience. He will join the Board of Trustees in July.
“I love this university and I love all of the opportunities that East Carolina has given me,” said King. “I figured this is the least I could do to try to give back and this is the best way I could have that opportunity.”
Srednicki, vice president, said he would use his former role with SGA as a foundation for his new role.
“I want students to be more engaged in what’s going on, what decisions are being made at the faculty, staff and Board of Trustees levels and come to SGA with their concerns,” said Srednicki.
Dutton said as treasurer she will work on improving efficiency in the allocation of student funding.
"I want to look at allocating funds to club sports and to Greek life. Because they get (additional) outside funds, they don’t usually get approved for (SGA) funding as often or as quickly as they need it,” said Dutton.
Swanner, secretary, was previously involved with Student Senate and wants to use her role as secretary to increase student involvement.
Collectively, the students said they would strive to complete their campaign goals, which included improving campus safety and implementing a house of representatives within SGA.
All four students are pursuing degrees in the ECU College of Business.
