The perfect driving song, we listened to this on our drive to Greenville, NC. Last week was my son's college orientation, and we loaded up the car, and drove.
A beautiful campus, East Carolina University is in the small city of Greenville, NC, with the city population of only around 84,000. Compared to Asheville, the kids said it is flat and were surprised there were no tall buildings.

|Greenville City Hall|
The highest building downtown is three stories tall. In contrast to that, the campus has dorms 10 stories tall.
We all liked the campus though. Gorgeous architecture.
|Cotton Hall, one of the oldest residence halls|
The park in the center of campus is beautiful, filled with squirrels, Petey the Pirate, and plenty of trees that need hugs.
And did I mention their colors are PURPLE and gold? My kind of campus.
The Fine Arts Building is surrounded with great sculptures.
Plus there is a fountain for relaxing.
I think my son will enjoy it here. A beautiful campus, a city not too intimidating, and I hear the football games are awesome. At least the stadium is awesome!
The drive is not too far, and not too close. Just the way he likes it. He goes back again in August, when we will have another road trip across the state.
As long at this song is on the playlist, I think we can all handle going from the mountains to flat, and back again, where the beauty and the protection of the mountains seems to have planted itself into our feelings of 'home'.
