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.
