    Pirate success comes in many forms. For some, inspiration arises when they first set foot on campus, or experience one of East Carolina University's unique programs like Semester at the Coast. For others, inspiration is brought on by a desire to help others. That could mean becoming the next great forensic scientist, or a future political leader who shapes policy.

    Pirates have big dreams they aim to achieve. Their first steps toward those dreams happen Friday, May 6, as more than 4,000 students and their families celebrate spring commencement.

    This spring's ceremony includes a processional of all graduates onto the field - the first time ECU has been able to since Spring 2019.

    This semester's graduate profiles include a future dentist, a speech pathologist, a dancing entrepreneur, and a sports psychologist, among others. Help us celebrate their achievements as #ECU22 reaches this important milestone in their lives.
