I realize this is an old topic, and I may not get any replies... But I have been accepted into the UMU PA Studies class of 2016-2018. I will be moving to Alliance in April from over three hours away. I am completely unfamiliar with the area, and was wondering if anybody could recommend an apartment complex or an area of town that is safe and somewhat affordable. I've been getting a lot of mixed reviews about living in Alliance. Any information you have would be very helpful. Thanks, and I hope things are going well for all of you!
