Greenville Reviews

My experience with the City of Greenville, NC. was mixed. My primary focus for this review was public safety and community concerns. Greenville has a population of 174 thousand with a racial composition of 60% Caucasian, 32% African American, 5% Hispanic, and 3% other. I spoke with 24 residents, covering each composition. Among Caucasians the greatest community concern was the public school system. The majority reported the public school system to be lagging behind in educational standards. Among African Americans & Hispanics the greatest concern was the lack of employment. With Eastern Carolina University being located within the City, the college floods the local employment with students for entry level jobs, leaving very little employment opportunities. Among all groups public safety was commended. All groups reported the Police & Fire Departments to be friendly, fair, and compassionate.
The town of Greenville has grown over the years. Greenville is a great place for young people to grow up in. It's home of the East Carolina Pirates, a major league college team. It's also home to one of the top medical hospitals, Vidant Medical Center. Vidant Medical Center is laid out beautifully in the heart of Greenville. The city of Greenville is developing more than it ever did. There's a new overpass coming, more businesses are opening, the hospital expanding, etc. I am very proud to be a citizen of Greenville. It's a beautiful town that has potential and growth opportunities. I can picture the town becoming a true city. It has many areas for recreation and parks. One of my favorite places to go in Greenville is Town Commons. Town Commons is one of the attractions in Greenville for fun and entertainment. I really enjoy going there. I am very excited to see Greenville grow and reach its full potential. Greenville is a good place for future generations to grow and prosper.
First of all, living in Greenville can be very convenient and comfortable. I have been living in Greenville about 2 years. I have experienced that living in a Greenville is very comfortable. There is a lot of facilities in Greenville such as supermarkets and many different types of shops. You can find and buy whatever you need whenever you need it. In addition to that, Greenville provides all the people with other facilities they need such as hospital and schools which are vital and important for the community.


There are clubs and restaurants in Greenville where people can enjoy their nights with family and friends. The lights in a city are not off during the night so it does not matter whether you continue your day or sleep during the night. In addition, you can use buses which are always available for everyone.Greenville is a nice place to stay for someone with kids.
