As a student going through Alliance City Schools who used to live elsewhere, I can say that Alliance is not a very desirable place to live. Summers are hot, but most of the year is cold, and Winters make it impossible to do much outdoors. Most residents are not well-educated or worldly at all, and while there is a prominent African-American community, diversity is still not good. No one cares about learning and classes are ridiculously easy. Teachers on the other hand are actually quite good, and there's a wide variety of extracurricular activities available. My most standards, it's not a good place to live, but compared to other local schools, it's the best.

Its a down to earth small town with many good stores and opportunities. It features a great university of mount union, which brings in a'lot of money for the town. We have many stores and a Walmart, Sheetz is the main night life spot for people to hang out and talk. We are getting many new places in the city theres many hardware stores and food places. The main road is state street which will get you anywhere you need to go, dunkin donuts is also a good spot. Alliance has its bad parts but many good ones and not much bad crime, which gives a feeling of security.
Alliance is a small town with people that are friendly and close to one another. The University of Mount Union has been a great experience for me, and for those looking for a university that has intimate class sizes with professors that can give you good one on one tutoring, this school would be a great fit. The town itself is not very active although the university offers plenty of fun and involved opportunities.
