Comaraderie at the Capital

CurtisBy: Jackie Curtis, incoming freshman, intended nursing major

I haven’t even begun my first semester at ECU, but I’ve already had the privilege of attending several Honors College events throughout the summer. On June 27, I joined a group of incoming Honors students for a “Capital Clean Up” trip at Falls Lake, a state park in Raleigh that includes a 12,000-acre lake and 26,000 acres of woodlands.

We spent a few hours learning about the Neuse River, picking up trash along the shore, and of course, laughing and getting to know one another! This was a great opportunity to help keep the Neuse River clean, and also a great opportunity to build friendships with fellow Honors students before starting classes this fall.

After the clean up, our group headed to Durham for dinner and a baseball game (yet another opportunity for fun and fellowship)! This trip really helped me get excited about all that my future at ECU holds!
