3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: The area is very populated for the most part. There is usually something to do if you have a car. If not you can bum a ride but typically it's really fun.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: the town is okay but the people that live in it aren't

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Stores such as Walmart and even the mall are at least 15 to 20 minutes away from the school. Many locals come to the campus and they are usually pretty nice but there are always unpleasant people. There isn't much around the area, just houses where there are some fun events every weekend, but if you wanted to be morr towards the city, Richmond is 30 minuted away.

2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Petersburg is very small..not many things to do. Only one mall. People just drive to Richmond if they want something to do.

2 College Sophomore
