ECU students prepare to head back to class Tuesday

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - After a week without classes, ECU students are preparing to head back to school this week.

East Carolina University officials encouraged students to return to campus and their off-campus housing after noon on Sunday to give more roads a chance to dry out.

Classes will resume on Tuesday.

Students say they have some catching up to do after classes were canceled last week because of Hurricane Matthew.

"The second round of exams are coming up and so a lot of teachers have had to cut things back, so it's been hard, but I think we'll end up getting everything straight Tuesday when we start back," says student Ivey Little.

The university has set up a call center for students, parents, and employees who have non-emergency questions at 252-737-5100.
