Review: East Carolina University is a public, coeducational, engaged doctoral/research university located in Greenville, North Carolina, United States. Named East Carolina University by statute and commonly known as ECU or East Carolina, the university is the largest institution of higher learning in eastern North Carolina and the third-largest university in North Carolina. With a fall 2010 enrollment of 27654 students, it is the fastest-growing campus in the University of North Carolina system for six consecutive years. The North Carolina General Assembly founded ECU on March 8, 1907 as a teacher training school and selected Greenville as its seat on July 2, 1908 with the first classes beginning in 1909. While East Carolina has historical strengths in education, nursing, business, music, theater, and medicine, it offers over 100 Bachelor degree areas of study including mathematics, hospitality management, Information and Computer Technology, engineering, construction management, computer science, exercise physiology, political science, social work, and environmental health. The school was originally established to train teachers for North Carolina, specifically the eastern part of the state, and continues this mission. However, today it also serves the region, the state and the nation through The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, The Small Business Institute, through the College of Business, and by conducting highly regarded outreach and research in medicine, coastal sciences, literature, music, education, chemistry and other disciplines. East Carolina has grown from 43 acres (17 ha) in 1907 to almost 1,600 acres (647 ha) today. The university's academic facilities are located on four properties: Main, Health Sciences, West Research facility, and the Field Station for Coastal Studies in New Holland, North Carolina. The nine undergraduate colleges, graduate school, and two professional schools are all located on these four properties. All of the non-health sciences majors are located on the main campus. The College of Nursing, College of Allied Health Sciences, The Brody School of Medicine and School of Dental Medicine are located on the health science campus. There are nine social sororities, 16 social fraternities, four historically black sororities, five historically black fraternities, one Native American fraternity, and one Native American sorority. Along with Greek life, there are over 300 registered clubs on campus.
