3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I often feel very safe on campus especially when walking alone from class to class. I would say that I wouldn't recommend you walking alone at night by yourself, it's better to walk in a group.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus security is getting tighter, I do not feel unsafe. Sometimes the locals try to make it a hard time for the students.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel like my school is a good school, but it is alot that needs to be improved. we need more activities for the students to reduce fighting, drinking, and smoking. Also I think they should update some of the dorms .

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: the campus police keep us safe for the most part .

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Play It Safe – There are always Campus Police surounding the campus. I have never felt unsafe since I have been at Elizabeth City State University. There are many emergency poles that with a push of a button can signal Campus Police, and they are on every corner of the campus including the dorms. We are a dry campus, so there is a NO ALCOHOL RULE!

Elizabeth City State University is probably one of the safest campuses in North Carolina. There isn't much violence that goes on around campus, besides a fist fight or two here and there. Nothing major happens directly on campus, but there are a few bad neighborhoods in Elizabeth City. The bad spots in town are nowhere near the University, though. Students are fairly safe all over campus and can walk freely without any harm being done to them. Once they reach downtown Elizabeth City, however, things start to get a little darker, and more people are doing violent acts during the nighttime hours, so students have to be careful in this area.

There is one spot on campus that many students will not venture to: the Complex Apartments. The Complex Apartments are where most trouble occurs, and being there may pose a small sense of danger, but probably not much. Overall, the campus is very safe, and the police are always on patrol, with emergency alarms students can signal if they need help. Some students do have violent backgrounds at Elizabeth City State University; however, most students do not, which makes the campus a lot safer.
