Ask @ECUProfessor:

Do you have any advice for NonTraditional students regarding College culture?

Make sure to get involved with student organizations that are relevant to your field. They can provide some good advice and career guidance. Also, if you have a full-time job and/or family that require a lot of your time, let your profs know. They will often be accommodating and understanding.

Any tips/advice you could give to ecu19?

College is what you make of it. If you want to be an elite scholar and get the most for your tuition dollar, work hard and prosper. 🎓 🖖 Party and socialize in moderation AFTER your work is done. Educational goals should be your top priority. Also, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly in order to promote physical and mental health.

Do most of your students like you and do you feel they would like you more or not if they know you run this account?

Students who care enough to to get to know me tend to like me. Some don't seem to care about class at all so they just view me as the boring person who talks at the front of the room and assigns grades. Those who know that I run this account tend to be fairly amused by that fact.

What do you think about Obama's community college plan? It's hard to imagine lower tier schools like ECU would support it (Certainly there are many ECU students that could be better off at a cc).

I don't know if it's economically feasible but I usually support any plan that will promote education. I'd prefer it if the NC legislature would just stop slashing the education budget year after year. The continual budget cuts have made it harder and harder for us to continue to fulfill our mission. It is getting to the point at which the only option that ECU has is to start raising tuition rates to try to make up for some of the loss.
