I have benefited from being involved on ECU’s campus in so many ways. Being involved has given me a huge opportunity to be able to network and meet new friends. I have worked with so many different people and personalities young and old.

Being involved has made me feel more apart of ECU and the Greenville community. I have learned more about myself and I have become more mature. While being involved I have also gained professional development, opportunities to serve, a bond with people that will last forever, as well as personal development. While being in the organizations and taking leadership positions it has definitely opened my eyes on what it takes to be a leader and not just any leader but a successful one.

 I strongly encourage other students to get involved. It can not only help you build your resume but you have so much fun, and learn so much for life. One of the many benefits of getting involved at ECU is that if there is no organization that interests you, you can start your own. With the wide variety of organizations that are available it may not even be needed but it is a great option. College is a time to start fresh and new.
