    Blacksburg Reviews

    3 reviews
    I love Blacksburg sc, because it is a small loving town where almost everyone knows each other or know someone they know. The school are small in population which is good that way the number of students to teacher is small. Which the interaction is great between teacher and student when there is not so many students. The traffic in my town is wonderful, you do not have the chaotic like you do in a big city. So getting some where on time in Blacksburg is a plus.
    Review Blacksburg
    Small town where you can relax and enjoy family. Good schools, not much to do there as far as entertainment.
    I like the fact that you can leave your door unlocked at night time and your kids can go outside and play and not worry about gunshots or kidnappers.
