About Erika

My name is Erika Dietrick, and I’m a sophomore in the Honors College here at ECU. I’m a biology major with a Hispanic studies minor, and I absolutely love being a Pirate! I’m originally from the Cincinnati, Ohio area, but I have bled purple and gold since I moved to North Carolina in 2010. I currently work at the Honors College as an Undergraduate Coordinator of Marketing and Communications as well as Buccaneer Yearbook as an Academics Editor. I’m also a mentor with the Pirate-to-Pirate Mentoring Program, a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and the ECHI Robotics Laboratory, and a Co-Chair of the Honors College Marketing Committee. I enjoy playing soccer (and competing in general!), writing short stories and poetry, traveling, and being artsy. I know a lot about ECU’s campus and would be glad to answer any questions you may have! Feel free to e-mail me at dietricke12@students.ecu.edu.
