Education Living-Learning Community

Living-Learning Community


The College of Education Living-Learning Community (LLC) gives first-year education students a unique residential learning experience that connects College of Education faculty and staff members and classroom learning with residence life to ease the transition into the ECU community and contribute to their success within the College of Education and beyond. Students will enjoy the typical first year experience of dorm life with the added benefit of living with other students who are also going into the education field. In addition to in-hall discussions and guest speakers, students in the LLC will have the opportunity to engage in a number of activities outside the University environment, attending cultural events, teambuilding ropes course, and social activities in and around the ECU community. These activities help students become comfortable with the residential and academic aspects of University life in a short period of time.

Madison Williams

Hometown: Fountain, NC
High School: Farmville Central High School
Intended Major: Elementary Education
Reason for Choosing Education: Since kindergarten, my dream job has been to become a teacher. As I got older, I realized there was a need for teachers especially in North Carolina. I want to inspire kids to follow their dreams as my teachers have inspired me. 
Why ECU: I choose to attend East Carolina University's College of Education because it was not only close to home but was also founded as a teachers' college, so it was a perfect choice. I have always bled purple and gold!!
Favorite thing about ECU: One of my favorite things about East Carolina University is even though it is a large school, I feel welcomed. The Living Learning Community and the College of Education have made me feel right at home in the short time I have been here.
