Life in Greenville
Less than a two–hour drive from North Carolina’s state capital of Raleigh in one direction and the NC beaches in the other direction, Greenville is a hub of educational, medical, cultural, and economic activity. With a population of more than 90,000 people, there is plenty to explore on campus and beyond.
ECU is home to more than 400 registered student organizations; the variety and diversity of the clubs and groups allow students to meet new people, learn new things, and cultivate their own interests.
Whether you’re on the field playing intramural or club sports, or in the stands cheering on the Pirates as they compete as part of the American Athletic Conference, you’ll have the opportunity to experience collegiate-level athletics in the middle of it all. Visit ECU Pirates for more information on ECU’s rich athletic traditions.
The ECU Transit bus system provides transportation on and off campus, and an easy ride between Main Campus and Health Sciences Campus. Service is free for students, staff, and faculty. There is also a shuttle to Raleigh-Durham International Airport available for a small fee. The Greenville Area Transit (GREAT) bus system also has many stops around the city, offering affordable fares for a student’s budget.
International Student Organization
The International Student Association (ISA) is open to all graduate and undergraduate students. Membership consists of international students completing degrees at ECU, those who are visiting ECU for only one or two semesters, as well as American students attending ECU who are interested in learning about their classmates from around the world.
Past activities and events of ISA have included trips to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, participation in Greenville International Festival, monthly cultural days celebrating one or two countries at a time, and ECU’s World Fest Holiday Celebration.
