Alexandria Reviews

All Categories
I have grown up in Alexandria my entire life. I love this city because it is so close knit but also not. Alexandria is small, but not so small that you see the same people all the time. It is extremely diverse. It has an incredible school district (Campbell County Schools) that I have been extremely lucky to have been a part of.
Review Alexandria
I have honestly not used Niche more than just this application for a scholarship award. It seems like an amazing sight and nothing to bring to the table to complain about or change so far. I am applying for this $1000 scholarship because I am about to start grad school for my Master's in Occupational Therapy at Spalding University in Louisville Kentucky.
Alexandria was once a small town but has since rapidly grown to a cluster of small suburbs. Everyone is extremely kind and welcoming. This is a very safe town providing multiple nationally ranked school systems.
