    leftwing and flashywife don't have a clue about what a fine school ECU is today or what a fine city Greenville is becoming today. They seem quite arrogant.

    East Carolina University football player

    These players should stay away from these parties of today. He could have been killed. May he learn from this as well as others learn too.

    Leftwing..First you have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to the academic admissions policies at ECU. So you need to stop there. My daughter is a rising Junior at ECU and I for one know that it is a fine university. Unfortunately those that don't know are usually the first to speak! My daughter also lives at North Campus and has had no problem with the complex, the problem was probably the one that don't leave there and have not business being there. Education is what you make of it, not just where you attend. For your information my daughter was an honor graduate. And I am proud of her attending ECU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Greenville has changed quite a bit over the last ten years. It has started to really become a better place to live. There are a lot of medical related businesses in town and the ECU programs related to healthcare are excellent. Check out their nursing school and the med school. Also, they have one of the finest heart doctors in the world in Greenville. He is an expert with the da vinci robot and top med students from all around try to do residency with him.

    Sorry..I was transferred there and thank god I got out while I could. That town is full of people still fighting the civil war. The college is dumpy and so are the people working there. To all of you nay sayers, check the crime reports. 'Nuf said...!

    When your mother says "nothing good ever happens after midnight", listen to her.

    "It is a great place to grow up, get an education to live and to raise kids."

    Greenville, NC? You must not have traveled outside there much in your lifetime. Whenever I have to go there for work, I can't wait to get out of there. I'm constantly driving with my doors locked and don't go out after dark if I can avoid it.
