Ettrick community is located a 3 minutes away from Virginia State University. One thing that I like about Ettrick is the accessibility and convenience. Within walking distance there are multiple fast food options along with grocery stores such as Walmart, Food lion, dollar tree etc. The only thing i would like to see change is the appearance of the buildings/housing. They are great on the inside however they look run down and not so appealing on the outside.

The area where I live now is a great atmosphere. I am a college student at Virginia state University and if I were able to do it all over again I would. This place is such a great place to be, the ranking of this area is great and in the future I see tons of job opportunities and better atmosphere than what it already is.
And it's getting better! Old Town Petersburg has the best collection of unique restaurants, and it's growing.
