Join the Alumni Association

Membership in the East Carolina Alumni Association is an easy way for you to express your loyalty to ECU. Anyone with an interest in ECU is welcome to join: graduates, former students, current students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends.

WHY JOIN?



Becoming a member of the East Carolina Alumni Association is a way to show your loyalty to ECU. We welcome and value anyone who loves ECU.


Like family, we celebrate the achievements of ECU and its alumni. Your Pirate pride will shine through as we award student scholarships, recognize faculty success, and present alumni awards.



The East Carolina Alumni Association brings alumni and friends together, strengthening the common bond and sense of community among Pirates. With events and regional chapters across the country, you don’t have to live in Greenville to feel at home in the Pirate Nation.


When you champion the excellence of East Carolina and its graduates, you increase the value of every degree. We strive to keep you informed of the extraordinary things happening on campus through publications like East magazine and our monthly e-newsletter ECUpdate.



Recognizing a strong future is built on a distinguished past, we believe the history and traditons of East Carolina are invaluable and must be preserved.

"My wife and I both graduated from ECU and we are both lifetime members of the Alumni Association. We've always had a devotion to East Carolina, and because we gained so much from our education, we think lifetime membership is a great way to give back to the University. I would recommend lifetime membership to anyone who went to East Carolina. There are many wonderful benefits, and it's very special."

Jerry '65 and Joanie '65 Tolley

"I am a member of the alumni association because it provides an opportunity for me to connect to the university, renew relationships through alumni events, and help attract potential students to ECU. As an active member of the alumni association, I have the chance to serve as an advocate for the university through volunteerism. Being a member along with my son as a fellow Pirate demonstrates commitment and builds a legacy within our family."

Linda Thomas '81

Jeremy Woodard '01

"I am a member of the alumni association because I appreciate how well ECU prepared me for my business career. I enjoy contributing to the alumni association's efforts to provide scholarships for some of our best and brightest students. The Alumni Association does a great job of providing ways for alumni to reconnect with their alma mater and I hope when they do they enjoy it as much as I do. I believe in what ECU stands for and my membership helps me feel a part of the great things ECU is accomplishing!"
