It is my pleasure to welcome you back to campus for the 2010 Alumni Reunion Celebrating Graduates of ECTC and ECC. I hope you’ll be able to join your fellow classmates and the East Carolina Alumni Association during Homecoming 2010: Rock’n in the Purple and Gold. The weekend is full of fun activities, including the Homecoming Luncheon, Classes without Quizzes, tours of campus, the Alumni Awards Ceremony and Dinner, Alumni Breakfast, parade watching, a special reunion photo, Alumni Tailgate, Pirates Football, and of course the traditional Alumni Reunion Dinner Dance featuring The Collegians.
If you have not been back to campus lately, I encourage you to come back to your alma mater and see how she continues to grow. ECU continues to be a beacon in eastern North Carolina for economic growth, medical care, the performing arts, and academic excellence. From modest beginnings as a school for training teachers, ECU has grown to become an emerging national research university with an enrollment of nearly 28,000 students and continues to fulfill its mission of teaching, research, and service.
I hope you’ll make plans to attend the 2010 Alumni Reunion Celebrating Graduates of ECTC and ECC today, and I look forward to seeing you in the fall.
