Here's a sneak peek of some of the things you'll discover when you visit East Carolina University in person.


The best way to get to know East Carolina University is to visit. We offer many opportunities for prospective students to experience campus, including: daily campus tours, information sessions, open houses, events for admitted students and other special events. Our enthusiastic students, faculty and staff look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful campus in the heart of Pirate Nation!

Campus Visit

We invite you to come see our campus in Greenville, North Carolina. Tours are offered Monday through Friday at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Your visit to campus will consist of an information session with an admissions counselor and a walking tour of campus led by one of our Pirate Navigators — a group of current students dedicated to recruiting the next generation of Pirates.

Your visit will last about two hours. Please be sure to dress for the weather and comfort as this is an outdoor walking tour.

Fall Open House

Fall Open House at East Carolina provides prospective students a wonderful opportunity to experience our campus for a day and discover the values of an ECU education first hand. Attendees get a chance to tour campus, meet faculty from the departments and schools they are most interested in, and learn from current students what it's like to be a Pirate. Parents can learn a lot, too — especially during our current parent panels. There is so much to experience.  

Fall Open House is Saturday, October 27, 2018.
