Student Health:  Norovirus emerging on campuses


Norovirus is beginning to emerge on college campuses, including ECU in recent weeks. 


Ever had nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea that came on you quick and ran through you like a mack truck?   Then you have probably experienced a “stomach bug” or “stomach flu” or maybe even thought you had “food poisoning”–all these phrases usually point to a the true culprit, Norovirus.


Norovirus is a nasty virus that is responsible for wreaking havoc on day care kids, college students, and even cruise line passengers around the world.  It causes rapid illness with severe nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, fever/chills, and abdominal pain/cramping.  Although sometimes called a “stomach flu”, it has no relation to influenza or the seasonal flu.  It is spread easily, with the virus particles living on contaminated surfaces for days and maybe even weeks.

Gateway Residence Halls Topping Off Ceremony


East Carolina University and the Division of Student Affairs hosted a topping off ceremony on Jan. 12, 2015 on College Hill for the new Gateway Residence Hall.

When completed this summer, the new residence hall will house 720 students and feature amenities that include music practice rooms, conference rooms, study rooms, lounges, an outdoor courtyard, a sand volleyball court and a basketball court. The new facility replaces Belk Residence Hall, which was demolished last year. Gateway East and West will be linked by an enclosed aerial walkway and will cost $58 million to complete.

The ceremony featured a virtual tour of Gateway halls.
