East Carolina University students – like students at any institution of higher education – face many stressors during their college tenure. These stressors may build and ultimately take a toll on a student’s ability to cope, impacting their mental and/or physical well-being as well as their academic performance. Frequently, parents, friends, faculty, and roommates may be in the best position to identify students on campus who, as a result of these stressors, are exhibiting signs of difficult coping.
ECU Cares was developed to offer assistance to distressed students, to connect them to appropriate campus and community resources, and to provide a mechanism by which others can report concerning behavior observed on campus to the appropriate professionals. This can be a critical first step in helping the student improve and ensuring a safe and health learning environment for the entire campus community.
To seek assistance from ECU Cares, call (252) 737-5555 or make an online report at www.ecu.edu/ecucares
Student Health Services News
Schedule Cancellations for Incomplete Immunizations
Students who are not in compliance with North Carolina State Immunization Law will be academically withdrawn from classes Monday, September 28, 2015 at 5:00pm. It is imperative that students who need to receive missing immunizations do so immediately to avoid schedule cancellation. Multiple notifications have been sent to students’ ECU e-mail accounts alerting them of their non-compliant status.
As a courtesy, ECU Student Health Service is offering walk in immunization hours every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:00am-10:00am through Monday, September 28. No advance appointments are made for these special immunization hours and students should be advised there may be a wait depending on volume; students can also seek missing immunizations at local physician offices, urgent care centers, retail pharmacies, or the Pitt County Public Health Center. Missing class time to get delinquent immunizations is not an excused absence so students need to plan accordingly to avoid missing academic work.
To check immunization status, students can log on to their Online Student Health account https://shs.ecu.edu with their PirateID and passphrase. For enrollment requirements, visit http://www.ecu.edu/cs-studentaffairs/studenthealth/immunizations/requirements.cfm
Important New Academic Rules for Students
Effective Fall 2015, there are several academic rules that will impact undergraduate students. These rules were developed to support student academic success and to comply with several UNC-General Administration mandates.
These rules include:
• Course and Term Withdrawals
• Readmission Under Forgiveness
Please refer to the Office of the Registrar’s website (www.ecu.edu/registrar) and the Undergraduate catalog for detail concerning these rules. Your student is encouraged to discuss any questions regarding the new rules with his/her academic advisor.

The Importance of the First Year
From the Office of Student Transitions
Developing a Sense of Belonging
Welcome to ECU!
Typically colleges plan a lot of events the first few weeks of school to help students get involved, make new friends, and ease the transition. East Carolina University is no exception! Between residence hall meetings, Plunge Into Purple (PIP) events, the start of classes, and making new friends, your student is pretty busy! The newness makes everything exciting. So during the first few weeks of school, you may not hear a lot from your student, and what you do hear is likely to be excitement!
One of the common complaints in the first few weeks is about roommates. For most students, this is their first experience sharing a room with someone. You can encourage your student to make the first step in creating a positive relationship with his or her roommate by opening the lines of communication. Roommates should establish boundaries about borrowing clothes, eating food, and when to have friends in the room. Resident Advisors (RAs) and professional residence hall staff are available to assist if needed.
During this time, students are busy testing their newfound freedom. There is no longer anyone enforcing a curfew or getting them up in the morning for class. This increased responsibility can be exhilarating but also overwhelming. As the weeks wear on, students may experience homesickness and loneliness. In September, students may experience anxiety with classes and professors and finally, first exams and papers being due. This may be the first dose of reality that college is different than high school.
This is an adjustment period for parents as well as siblings. Just remember that even if your son or daughter doesn’t tell you in the first few weeks, he or she does miss you!
Some Questions to Ask Your New Student
Making the Transition
First impressions are lasting impressions. Our experience with first-year students teaches us that students need to get involved early, build habits for success, and learn to make wise decisions about their time. The following suggestions address typical early transition issues for first-year students during the first few weeks of college.
Experience with successful college students reveals that their college success is influenced by the quality and quantity of their interactions outside of class. The “big three” connections that help students succeed at ECU are with supportive faculty, staff, and peers. Here are some suggestions for encouraging social interactions for your student. Student-to-Faculty: Encourage interaction outside of class, immediately after class, or during office hours. Student-to-Staff: Encourage your student to maintain regular contact with his or her advisor – not just during registration periods. Also encourage them to get to know their residence hall coordinator and other support staff they may encounter. Student-to-Student: Encourage your student to seek peer relationships with others who are success-seeking and success-achieving students.
Focus on Academics: Developing Competence
By now your student has begun to develop his or her sense of belonging at ECU. He or she has met a few friends, gotten involved in a few organizations, and hopefully feels like a part of the Pirate Nation! He or she may now be struggling with developing academic competence and confidence in college level work. The differences between high school and college level course work can be significant. To be successful, first-year students will have to study more, use critical (or higher level) thinking skills, perform well on fewer exams, and rise to the level of their academic challenge. Ultimately they must develop new skills for thriving in a collegiate environment. There are a variety of resources available to students to support their academic success and help them develop academic competence.
For Academic Support:
Common Adjustments for First-Year Students
As students transition to life in college and away from home, many will experience difficulty in similar adjustments. Each month, we’ll focus on adjustment issues that students commonly experience during that month.
Homesickness - They may not tell you, but chances are your student misses you and being at home. It’s not just about having someone to cook and do laundry for them though. Students miss the comfort that comes from a familiar environment with established routines.
Roommate conflicts - Students are often sharing a room with someone else for the first time. This can create conflict, especially if they are not comfortable confronting someone they do not know.
Parents of our First Generation College Students
Parents of First Generation College Students – how are you doing? It’s been about two weeks now that your son or daughter have moved onto our ECU campus in Greenville. How are you filling your days? Are you calling and texting and emailing them? Or are they contacting you? Or both? A definite shift has occurred in the family dynamic with your child now in college. In the Division of Student Affairs we are busy getting them CONNECTED to the university. You know, feeling like it is home or at least much more familiar.
We operate under 4 Pillars of Student Success in Student Affairs: Connect, Invest, Motivate, and Finish Strong. Each pillar is emphasized through our programming and classes depending on where we are in the first academic year. For example, Connect is the first pillar and the critical time for your sons and daughters to make those connections is at the beginning of the Fall Semester. Why? So, they become a part of the Pirate Nation. They know they are an ECU student and that this is their academic home. Make no mistake, they miss you and many of them are homesick, but they are trying to connect, they are attending their classes, making new friends and figuring things out!

The Sophomore Year Experience
Each month, this article will help you and your student successfully navigate the sophomore year at East Carolina University. During the fall semester we will provide information on various milestones that are important to the sophomore experience. This month’s article focuses on Academic Success. Upcoming articles will focus on Community Involvement, Career Preparation, Personal Growth, and Preparation for the next phase, the Junior Year Experience.
The Office of Student Transitions, in partnership with parents and families, will make every effort to help students successfully achieve their personal and academic goals by encouraging students to connect, invest, stay motivated, and finish strong at ECU.
Choosing an Academic Path
Choosing an academic direction is one of the most important decisions sophomore students will make in college. A student’s choice of major will lead him or her down a path that incorporates contacts with faculty and peers, exposure to academic content, and the type and depth of academic experiences that might affect later decisions involving the identification of career alternatives or post-undergraduate education. Encourage students to:
• Stay connected by participating in Sophomore Year Experience programs and events.
Convocation, Palooza Prepare Students for New Semester
East Carolina University alumnus Scott Avett encouraged approximately 4,200 incoming students to make the most of every moment during a keynote presentation at the annual Student Welcome and Convocation at Minges Coliseum Aug. 23.
A member of the popular musical group, the Avett Brothers, Avett shared his personal experiences as a student who faltered at first, then got his life back on track. His grade point average dropped to a dismal 0.9 GPA, then rose to a 4.0 GPA in the process.
“This is the place where you can make your dreams happen," Avett said. “Everything I have, my career, my family, my success, all started here at East Carolina University.”
Avett encouraged the new Pirates to step out of their comfort zones while on campus to become the best that they can be – whether that’s educating others, performing or whatever career path they choose.
A pep rally with coaches, cheerleaders and ECU mascot Pee Dee the Pirate focused on ECU sports traditions, while further cranking up audience enthusiasm as the convocation closed.
Following convocation, more than 5,000 students poured into Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium for the 15th Annual Pirate Palooza, which includes live band karaoke, large inflatables, interactive athletic games, free food and giveaways. Students who posted tweets and photographs to social media using the #ECUPalooza hashtag saw their posts display on the stadium scoreboard.
Pirate Safety News: Hurricanes and ECU
Hurricane Season runs from June 1st to November 30th for the Atlantic Ocean. For North Carolina, the majority of tropical storms make landfall between August and October. In the last 25 years, Greenville has been impacted by 23 tropical storms.
ECU is designated by the National Weather Service as a StormReady University. Despite our access to the best technology available, forecasts are based on computer models that inherently contain potential for error and weather systems can change. ECU faculty, staff, and students need to become familiar with the Greenville climate and check weather forecasts frequently throughout hurricane season. The forecast and conditions can change often.
ECU Alert: How the University notifies faculty, staff, and students
ECU Alert is a collection of communication systems that the University uses to distribute emergency notification and information. ECU Alert is comprised of:
Once the University has decided to close, cancel or delay classes, the notification is sent through ECU Alert. This information can be found on the University home page, emergency hotline, campus email, and SMS text messages (users will only receive text if subscribed).
Hurricane Preparedness & Safety
Faculty, staff, and students should know the hazards associated with tropical storms, in order to make a plan of action. Below are some tips to prepare for hurricane season. Please visit the Hazardous Weather Tips website at http://www.ecu.edu/cs-ecu/alert/hazardous-weather-tips.cfm for additional safety information.
Ballard to Step Down as ECU Chancellor 2016
On July 1, 2015 Chancellor Steve Ballard announced he will step down as East Carolina University's top leader next year, serving in his current role until July 1, 2016. Ballard has served as chancellor since 2004.
The timeline will allow a search for the next leader to take place with minimal disruption for the institution,
Ballard said. "There is much to accomplish in the next year as we continue to build academic excellence across colleges, stand out in the American Athletic Conference and lead regional transformation in eastern North Carolina," Ballard said. "I look forward to working with everyone, including our partners, over the next 12 months."
UNC President Tom Ross said Ballard's tenure has been a time of growth, excellence and leadership for East Carolina. "Under his leadership, ECU has raised the bar with respect to academic excellence and integrity, service and community engagement, and intercollegiate athletics," said Ross. "During his tenure, ECU has grown beyond its natural eastern North Carolina footprint and has developed a truly statewide impact. By any measure, Steve Ballard will leave ECU stronger and better than he found it."
During the past decade ECU has received prestigious national recognition, including the Freedom Award for support of the military from the Department of Defense and the C. Peter Magrath Community Award from the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities. Ballard lauded the commitment and passion of East Carolina for those strides. "I am grateful to faculty, staff, students and leadership at ECU for your spirit, for your collegiality and for the difference you make to higher education," he said. "In very difficult times, you continue to excel."

The Freshman Honeymoon (and Beyond!)
For many students, the first few weeks of their freshman year are exciting, as they explore the campus, figure out their new routines and dive into classes, organizations and their social lives. However, there comes a time where the honeymoon is over—and many students struggle to reconnect as the novelty wears off and reality sets in.
There are key events that may create this inner conflict, and as parents, it’s sometimes hard to know how to respond or support your student through this period without interfering with their own growth and developing independence. Here are a few tips to try as your student experiences these common issues…
As always, please feel free to contact the Center for Counseling and Student Development with any questions regarding mental health concerns and our services on campus at 252-328-6661 or at www.ecu.edu/counselingcenter
