Topping off ceremony for ECU's Student Center

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) One of the largest construction projects in ECU'S history reached an important milestone Wednesday.

The university hosted a topping off ceremony as progress continues on the new 210.000 square foot student center on campus.

Students and staff signed the beam, including Chancellor Cecil Staton and former Chancellor Steve Ballard, who lead the university when the project began.

The ceremony marks the final beam being put in place, and students say they can't wait for the new center to open, which is scheduled for the fall of 2018.
