Health & Safety

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I walk around alone by myself a lot and I always feel safe. Big difference about ECSU's campus and other college campuses is that you will not see the big blue emergency posts you normally see at other colleges. They don't exist here and it did make me feel uncomfortable at first and at night they could be really comforting to have.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police are always on patrol and whenever something looks out of order, they see about the situation. The campus is well lit at night. The administrators and professors are constantly educating the students on sexual related crimes. The school also receives patrol from off campus officials. They usually respond to situations quickly.

1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They don't have real a nurse. It's a nursing assistant. You have to go to the nearest hospital which is an hour away. The campus police are never around and are very old men. They always send you emails about brake ends. When a girl gets raped it is not know and the right measures are not taken. A girl got raped and went through real bad emotional problems. She never returned to school.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I hardly ever see campus police. Occasionally they roam the streets and parking lots but that's about it. When there are big events on campus, campus police is very slack. People are free to drink and smoke practically wherever.

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
