Health & Safety:
From the day you come to orientation to the day you leave, it is drilled in your head to not walk alone on or off campus. Greenville has one of the highest crime rates in North Carolina so this makes perfect sense. It seems as though the cops focus on busting pot smokers and underage drinkers while my friends and neighbors are being killed, robbed, and sometimes even worse things happen to them. Its easy to see the Blue Panic towers on campus, but one rarely hears about crime being fought in real time in Greenville. It's very sad. My computer got stolen last semester and GPD hasn't done anything to figure out where my computer is. They are corrupt, they don't follow rules, laws, or social mores, I am not exaggerating to any extent. This is a real problem in Greenville that police can only stop kids from having a good time and letting off a little steam.

School Pride – ECU has pride like no other college. Everyone is proud to be a pirate.

It's a lot of fun but be sure that you don't go alone.

The best thing that goes on at ECU is football! Arrgghh!

Health & Safety:
Safe to an Extent – I have never felt unsafe in while I have been at East Carolina. There are blue lights everywhere. So, when you do not feel safe one can press a button, and the police will be there in no time. The only thing I would not recommend is walking down a side street at two in the morning. At that point no city is safe, so beware!

Best Place on Earth – East Carolina has to be one of the best social and overall great campuses alive. Coming in as a freshman, you feel so accepted and no one judges you for the choices you make. There is NEVER a dull moment on campus because there is always something crazy, funny, or helpful going on. If I had to choose schools all over again, I would definitely pick ECU again!

It's Your Choice – The drug scene at ECU all depends on who you hang out with. Drugs are indeed a popular thing, but it's never out in the open. Drinking is more popular here, but luckily for both substances, peer pressure is very small. It's ultimately your choice if you want to do it or not.

Great Frats and Sororities – At ECU, the greek life is very known and semi-dominant on campus. There are always social events, fundraisers, and anything else they do advertised to the public. The frats and the sororities always make the campus more enjoyable and it's always fun to go to a frat party every weekend.

Questionable Clubs – The nightlife at east carolina is fun on somenights and others not too much.
There are a couple of things that bi
College Senior 2012-02-14T03:14:20Z
Every one says E.C.U stands for Everyone Carries an Umbrella. It rains a lot and when it is cold it is usually windy too.

Buses are the way to go, unless you bring your bike. The bus route is extremely convenient and on time, all include air conditioning and recently updated. The campus is fun to bike around. Other activities off campus require a car for the most part.

The computer labs are nice, I never really see too many people utilizing them. There is definitely a need for a personal computer and printer, the printing service is confusing. Network speed is fine, sometimes glitchy as expected.

East Carolina's facilities are updated and well kept. The recreation center is nice as everything else on campus, not state of the art, but gets the job done.

The weather in Greenville is terrible, it is always raining which for some reason causes the buses to be late.

The off campus housing selection is great. There are many apartment complexes that benefit student needs. Most of the apartments have their own gym, internet cafes, basketball courts, pools, and tanning. The apartments are usually gated and very safe. All of the apartments have buses that take you to campus and back from classes.

Easy on the Grease – I like the fact that we have buffet style dining but the quality of the food could be worked on. No wonder some people gain the freshmen 15.

Paper Limit – The computer labs are terrible. You can only print off a certain number of pages and most of the time the labs are full of people. The wireless requires you to insert your credintials everytime you get on the internet.

Big Melting Pot – There is a wide assortment of people on campus at ECU. Tons of people from "up North" down here.

The new athletic center is great .Newly renovated and not as crowded .Library is excellent and all general campus aesthetics are good.

The buses are normally on time but sometimes are a bit crowded. Most transportation is free.

For some people, parking sucks for others it's pretty decent. It just depends on what permit you have. All on campus parking is by permit only unless it's after 7:00 pm.

General Campus Aesthetics – The overall campus at East Carolina is beautiful. The 2011 fall semester brought Hurricane Irene and her wrath upon the campus causing quite a bit of damage. However, there have been people working hard since then to restore the campus to it's original beauty. Our campus has a modern yet classic feel to it. There's a large grassy area (the mall) in the center of campus. It's beautiful. The grass is very green and luscious. There are many art sculptures scattered about the campus which add to it's aesthetics. The only thing you have to worry about is the squirrels.

Greek Life is very popular. There are plenty of options if one is interested in joining.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
