Your Opinion Is Needed!!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Lynn Caverly @ 1:30 pm

To the ECU community,

At a meeting on the 18th of December, the Board of Trustees will consider a proposal to rename the Charles B. Aycock Residence Hall. As required by the policy on naming, an ad hoc Naming Committee has been constituted to make a recommendation to the Chancellor (who will communicate his recommendation to the Board of Trustees) on whether the renaming should occur. The ad hoc Naming Committee includes representatives from the University Counsel’s Office, the faculty, the staff, the student body, the Office of University Advancement, and the alumni.

An important part of the process is obtaining feedback from all concerned parties (students, faculty, staff, and alumni). To this end, the committee has launched a website with multiple documents about the history of Charles Aycock, his speeches, and the naming of the residence hall, and a survey that will allow feedback to the committee. The website and survey may be found by clicking (or cutting and pasting into your browser) the following link:

The recommendation from the committee will be finalized and forwarded to the Chancellor by the 12th, so please complete the survey as soon as possible.

I have been asked to chair this committee, so please contact me with concerns about the website or with any questions at

Looking for Something to Do this Weekend in Greenville?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Lynn Caverly @ 2:30 pm

Whether you prefer the arts or athletics, or enjoy both, there is something for you to do this weekend on the campus of ECU.

“Kiss Me Kate” is the School of Theatre and Dance’s latest production of the 2014-2015 ECU/Loessin Playhouse season. Performances will be held at 8 p.m. Nov. 20-22 and Nov. 24-25 and at 2 p.m. on Nov. 23 in McGinnis Theatre. Tickets are $17.50 for the public or $12 for ECU students and youth.


It’s a play-within-a-play, the story of a divorced couple, both actors, performing Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew.” The onstage and behind-the-curtain antics of the feuding couple get more complicated when thugs arrive to collect a gambling debt from another actor.
The play is said to be loosely based on a real Broadway couple (though never divorced) – Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne – who acted from the early to mid-1900s. They were famous for their demanding work ethic and on-and off-stage fights, DiDomenico said. “Supposedly they would go right from the dressing room onto the stage,” Shearin said. “Nobody’s sure it’s the case, but it makes a great story.”

For more information or to purchase tickets, visit, call 252-328-6829 or go to the McGinnis Theatre Box Office located in the Messick Theatre Arts Center, open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.


The ECU Pirates (6-2, 3-2 American Athletic Conference) are back home in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium this Saturday, November 22nd against the Green Wave of Tulane (3-7, 2-4 American Athletic Conference) in celebration of Military Appreciation Day. The game will begin at 3:30 p.m. With a sunny day, high temps in the low 50’s it will be a perfect day for football. For more information, and to order tickets, go to
