Congrats and Welcome!

Save the date for Aug. 15-21 and join us for the official start of your journey at Tiger Welcome Orientation Week. We cannot wait for you to experience all ECU has to offer as you achieve your educational goals.

Tiger WOW was created to help your transition to Tigerland be a success. All incoming freshmen are expected to participate in Tiger WOW. During WOW, you will learn more about your academic program, opportunities to be involved on campus, and our community.

Tiger WOW begins with move-in the Saturday before classes and continues throughout the first week of class.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to meet new people, get connected to your ECU family, and have fun!

Please note: East Central University has worked hard preparing for the return of students to campus this fall, with the goal of providing an exceptional experience. ECU is excited to host traditional Welcome Orientation Week (WOW) festivities for incoming freshmen, while taking every precaution to minimize risk. Face coverings and social distancing protocols are required, and most events are outdoors. Hand sanitizer and CDC-approved cleaning supplies will also be available.
