Pirates Aboard Admitted Student Day

Join us on Saturday, March 23, 2024 for Pirates Aboard Admitted Student Day!

Admitted students and their families are invited to attend our campus-wide celebration of our newly admitted Pirates! During Pirates Aboard, meet faculty and spend time with your intended major, attend topical information sessions, take part in our admitted student tours, participate in a campus-wide activity fair, and get to know Pirate Nation. This is your opportunity to connect with your future classmates and professors from our eight colleges, representing 87 bachelor’s degrees, while also learning about our organizations and services. We are so excited for you to get hooked on ECU!

Unable to attend? Colleges and schools are also hosting smaller Admitted Student Fridays.
