ECU Best Schools

The Princeton Review names East Carolina University one of the best colleges in the Southeast.

138 colleges across 12 states received recognition as "Best in the Southeast."

In a news release, Princeton Review's Senior Vice President and Publisher, Robert Franek said, "We're pleased to recommend East Carolina University to users of our site as one of the best schools to earn their undergrad degree. We chose it and the other terrific institutions we name as 'regional best' colleges mainly for their excellent academic programs."


The findings come as a result of an 80-question survey. Rankings are based on academic quality and campus experiences.

"I'm especially pleased to see the Princeton Review's ranking of ECU. Their two most important factors are academic excellence as related to undergraduate programs and the views of the student body as reflected in an independent survey," said ECU Provost Dr. Marilyn Sheerer. "Certainly, our undergraduate programs and options are very strong, and the students have shown their support of this fact in their response."
