Pirates Aboard! Future pirates enjoy 2017 Admitted students Day

The entire East Carolina University campus was all-hands-on-deck Saturday, April 1 for the Pirates Aboard! Admitted Students Day when more than 5,600 students and guests were in attendance.

Admitted students were able to participate in a full day of sessions including presentations from their intended majors; updates from financial aid, housing, dining, and student life; campus tours; and an opportunity to visit different styles of residence halls.

“A beautiful spring day on the ECU campus, coupled with the friendliness of our faculty, staff, and students makes Pirates Aboard! one of the best recruitment tools we have.”

– Dr. John Fletcher, associate provost for enrollment services

  • 35 departments/colleges held academic info sessions
