I started college in Aug 1988. I wasn't ready for college... after 3 years I left college and joined the Army. Then came marriage, 2 children and a wonderful career in computer programming.
In 2005, I felt the desire to finish my degree. Not just for my sake but to prove to my children that education beyond high school is important.
While working a full-time job and putting my family first... Thanks to the ECU DE program I was able to finish my Bachelor's degree and am now almost through my Master's program.
Without the ECU DE program this dream would not have been possible - Thanks SO Much!

I've been a DE student since 2009. Although I enjoy the face-to-face experience as a student, distant education classes fit perfectly into my current lifestyle. I like the flexibility, and convenience of studying online at East Carolina University. The instructors are helpful and willing to assist the students with learning the material. Also, I like the opportunity of being able to obtain a full degree completely online. I would suggest East Carolina University to anyone who is a working full-time and don't have the time to attend a traditional classroom setting to obtain a degree. I'm looking into obtaining my master degree at East Carolina University after I finish my bachelor's. I'm proud to be a Pirate!!!!
