We are the Pirates of ECU!
A powerful six word statement representing the spirit of an institution and everyone associated with it. "We are the Pirates of ECU" symbolizes the spirit, passion, loyalty and pride of East Carolina University, its alumni and fans.
Pirate Club member Aaron Wilson (ECU, 2010) said that being an ECU Pirate is "a badge of honor, a way of life, and a nationwide family like no other! It's the Pirate Nation!!!" Each time the ECU Victory fight song is played, sing these words with passion as one nation loud and proud to be an ECU Pirate!
A feeling of satisfaction or honor taken in one's success and achievements.
East Carolina takes great pride in the many achievements that have transpired through the history of Pirate Athletics. Take a look through the highlights from our past.
