The ECU Police have a visible and friendly presence, yet they do not hesitate to arrest or cite people for various offenses, which should make students feel safe and secure. Fortunately, criminal offense rates are low here. Students can start being proactive about their safety by taking the HLTH 1000 class during their first semester or year. For students who come from towns where sex education only advocates abstinence, the course is helpful for learning about birth control and ways to reduce STD transmission, which is especially important since the STD rate is rumored to be high here.
While on-campus sexual assault reports have been minimal, numerous students have been victimized off campus and not reported it. Students should avoid walking alone after dark in the areas near downtown and should make sure they have enough money before going out so they do not have to use the ATM machines downtown, which are good places to rob drunk people who have just replenished their funds. Campus is well lit, so students should not be worried about walking back to their dorms or cars at night. There is also Safe Ride, and there are emergency blue-light phones everywhere. Residence hall doors are locked 24 hours a day, but non-residents can still sneak in behind residents, so you should always be aware of who is around when you enter your dorm, especially at night.
