FooteWhen I decided to return to school I was reluctant to take DE classes. I was worried I would be “alone” in the process. That is just not the case here at ECU, Faculty and Staff at ECU are dedicated to the success of DE learners. The DE community here at ECU is the BEST! Professors are available with dedicated office hours for DE students and are always approachable. ECU also offers a multitude of services for DE students, from Career Services to exam proctoring, to name a few. There is also a student organization for DE students called Distance Education Student Organization (DESO). ECU’s degree completion program changed my life. I’m proud to be a part of the Pirate Nation!
