The ECSU Foundation celebrates the arrival of a donation by Mr. Phillip Templeton of Chesapeake, Va, owner of Emerald Lakes Apartments, that will provide a year's free rent to two deserving graduate students. The students are enrolled for the 2007-2008 academic year. Graduate students are those who have earned a bachelor's degree and completing college courses for the purpose of earning either a master's, doctoral or professional degree, such as M.D. or J.D. for doctors or attorneys. ECSU offers four master's degrees, M.Ed. in Elementary Education, M.S.A. for School Administration, and M.S. in Biology and Mathematics, and has partnered with UNC-Chapel Hill's School of Pharmacy for a Pharm.D. degree.
