East Carolina University is a beautiful campus with tons of things to do. The University tries to ensure that its students are healthy and entertained by providing fun and free events on campus to encourage students to get involved throughout the Fall and Spring Semesters.

1. Get a Clue

At the beginning of the Fall Semester at ECU, Get a Clue takes over the mall. This is a very fun event where incoming students can learn about different organizations on campus and opportunities to volunteer in Greenville. There are lots of coupons for local restaurants and free giveaways like t-shirts, cups, and candy.

2. Homecoming Concert

Every year on the Thursday of homecoming week, ECU brings in a famous artist to perform for their students. The best part is, this concert is free! Students have to get their free ticket from the student center, and then they can attend the concert. Previous artists include Lee Brice, Future, and 21 Savage, so each year there is a different genre of artist.

3. 7:07 Series

The 7:07 series is a great event that occurs on certain Tuesdays throughout the year at 7:07 pm. Different stars from MTV shows like Girl Code, Guy Code, and Wild and Out come and perform and speak with students. Other 7:07 series have included carnivals in the football stadium with free food and rides. These events are also free for students, on a first come first serve basis.

4. Barefoot on the Mall

The week before finals, the Student Activities Board knows that their peers are stressed out and need a break. Barefoot on the mall is the perfect opportunity to unwind, eat free food, jump on inflatables, and listen to great music! Previous artists include MKTO and Charlie Puth. This event is also free to students.

So whether it is the beginning of the academic year and you are looking for clubs to join, or right before final exams and you desperately need a study break, East Carolina University will provide the resources for you to get exactly what you need. Be sure to take advantage of these free opportunities!
