Alexandria used to be a great place to live and raise a family but thanks to our lack code enforcement it has really gone down hill in the last several years. Garbage cans left out on the sidewalks/streets for days after the garbage had been collected, people parking right up in their front lawn when there is more than ample parking available on the street, and the constant dogs barking is a joke!!! WTG, city council/code enforcement!!

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.

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.
