I like attending UNCP but I do not like living in Pembroke. The crime rate in the town and Robeson county is very high. On many occasions break-ins, trespassing, robberies, and assaults have occurred on off-campus as well as on campus. Someone even broke into my college apartment one time so I do not think the area is safe. I think there should be more security for college students. There is also a lack of job opportunities in the area. You will have to travel to Lumberton, Fayetteville, SC for job opportunities. This is the prospective of a college student that lives in the area.

I have lived in Pembroke for 8 years as a college student in undergraduate and graduate school. In the beginning, the small town will grow on you and you will end up being comfortable here. However, being here so long also helped me realize the community around me. This a lot of crime in this area. Lack of job opportunities. Lack of a nightlife that was once present. But its a decent area to go to school if you have transportation
The town's heritage is very rich and it is amazing to see a community celebrate that heritage so beautifally together; however, the town is very unaccpeting of people in the LGBTQ+ community, or non-christian community.
