What’s great about ECU?

My name is Louis Joseph Cameron III and I am a sophomore, majoring in Philosophy with a minor in Political Science. When I graduate, I plan to attend graduate school to get a Master’s degree in Higher Education/Student Affairs. I’d like to return to ECU and work in one of the various Student Affairs departments.

The main thing I love about ECU offers a lot of different organizations and activities on campus that you can get involved in. An organization that keeps me VERY busy is Student Government Association. In this, I’m the Undergraduate Senator for the College of Arts and Sciences. My job is to write bills and resolutions for the senate to improve student life. Being in SGA has allowed me to work with student leaders, interact with the ECU community, and network with professionals and administrators on campus. In doing this, I’m able to make friends, create more opportunities that will better the school, and provide my service to the school and learn about working in the college environment.

For future and current students at ECU, I think it’s important to know that college isn’t just about the degree. It’s also about meeting people and preparing for your life after graduation. There are many different opportunities available to students that will help your career and your life. In my opinion, if you do things in college the “right” way, you’ll have one of the best times of your life!

My ECU Experience

You guys made the right choice in considering ECU as one of your choices for a higher education. My name is Abby Forman. I’m a senior Communication major, with a concentration in Public Relations, and a Business Administration minor. I will be graduating in May 2012!


Coming from a small beach town in New Jersey, deciding to attend ECU was a drastic change from my current life. Yet, it only took me a week to be able to call this campus home.


There wonderful opportunities offered to students here. To name each one of them would be impossible! One opportunity offered to me was an internship in NYC through the School of Communication. I had an incredible experience during this internship. I was able to put my knowledge from the classroom and apply it in a real-world job setting. I was able to use what I learned and turn it into real work for a profitable company while gaining college credit at the same time! ECU gave me the skills I needed to perform successfully at my job and helped me find a job that was the right fit.


It is hard to say and even unbelievable to think that I am leaving this place in less than a year. I’ve had the most incredible experiences and I had many opportunities that I didn’t think were possible. These led me to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions where I became the Marketing and Public Affairs intern! I am confident that this internship along with my other experiences here, I am prepared for anything that comes my way in the future!
