Take out your phones and donate to the campaign, ECU student Amy Littleton told the crowd.
Littleton is the campus organizer for Obama for America at ECU.
Presenters so far include Matt Paske, student body vice preident and nursing major; and Brantley Barnhill, a sophomore music major who sang the National Anthem. Vonner Horton, pastor of Oxley Hill Baptist Church in Merry Hill, presented the invocation.
Crowds are chanting four more years. Levi Clemons, a Vietnam veteran, leads the Pledge of Allegiance.
