The town of Alva is quite a small one, but the connection between the residents of this town is everything but that. Ever since I've moved into this town everyone has made me and my family feel extremely welcomed and made us feel at home. For such a small community, everyone is extremely close, basically like family. I've never felt like I was in danger because of the closeness of the community and the way that everyone watches out for everyone else. This is one of the best towns I have ever lived in and I still love every second of living in this wonderful city.

Pretty good town to live in or go school. People up here are really nice friendly. School in this two is really good. But the university is a bit expensive than any other cities. Less opportunity for scholarship in collage. But the professors are really nice and friendly
