During the orientation, the student-athletes got a chance to meet and mingle with the head coaches from each sport, athletic department administrators, and current SAAC representatives. There were representatives from various campus departments presenting to the student-athletes about topics like: parking, housing, student rights and responsibilities, and diversity. The orientation was a success and the Office of Student Development staff are excited to begin working with our new student-athletes.

ECU Football’s new freshmen class got a jump start on giving back to the community. Our freshmen student-athletes volunteered at the Eastern North Carolina Food Bank in Greenville by stacking cans of food to prepare for delivery and pick up. It was a hot day, but they pushed through it for a good cause. At the Ronald McDonald House over on the Pitt Memorial Hospital campus, our freshmen participated in game night with families who are staying at the house. The players played games with the kids that were staying at the house while their siblings were recovering in the hospital. It was a great time for both the players and families.
