The exterior looks like a seedy club that you probably shouldn’t visit if you value life. Changing out the steel doors alone isn’t going to fix that. I just hope with time they add nicer exterior features.

Despite enrollment drop, ECU chancellor sees 'no limits' in future - Daily Reflector

I’d like to hear our C-D community thoughts on this. Of course we’ve known since last year that less students than expected enrolled in ECU, but frankly I’ve never thought too much into how that might affect dorms. For such a conservative university, I’m surprised a trustee would even question rather to require sophomores to stay in dorms. That all said, I do maintain the view that ECU should continue bolstering research capacity + working with Greenville to be more attractive.

I’m not sure how often ECU administrators and City Officials meet in a official capacity, but I would be a proponent of establishing a joint-committee to have dialogue on a regular basis. ECU is the bread and butter of Greenville and whatever they do on any particular topic influences all of us. For instance, if ECU were to require sophomores to stay on campus, that means more empty off-campus housing and probably a decline in demand.

The relationship also goes the other way, if Greenville becomes more appealing then we can better hold our ground in respect to the “Promise Schools” mentioned in the article. I’d like to imagine NC State doesn’t have to worry too much about the Promise Schools as Raleigh can market itself to prospective students as a place that you can live after graduating, all while offering tremendous opportunities while enrolled in school. Of course Greenville isn’t Raleigh, but we must invest more heavily and be more daring.

Students, and this logic could also be applied to companies, want to feel part of something bigger. Most ECU students that I’ve met are incredibly proud of their experience at ECU, but on the opposing hand don’t care to actually see Greenville outside of Uptown. We can, and must, do better than that folks.

I see better times ahead for ECU and Greenville. When football, basketball, and baseball all start reaching the post-season on a consistent basis enrollment will rebound. At the same time, the University needs to continue growing its "professional" schools and adding new ones in order to grow its reputation and endowment. Greenville is growing and setting itself up for more growth in the future. Downtown has awakened from a forty-year slumber the last few years and that will probably continue as long as the national economy continues to grow. Greenville still has significant room for improvement, but the ball is rolling in the right direction.

The entire yellow wall and steel doors are temporary. They'll all be gone for the final product

Its just a blip. Apparently there was less high school graduates this past year compared to the year before. It didnt hurt some of the other schools because of the "promise" tuition.

With the new Student Center in play, a new Theater for bands opening, the 10th St Connector getting finished and continuing development downtown, there is no way the freshman enrollment will continue to drop. The quality of student is no worse either. Its a non starter. And as for the dorms, they need to continue to be renovated to entice freshmen students who are required to live in them. They are long term investments.
