I love how small the campus is. We don"t have to walk far to get to classes or to eat. Professors are easy to talk to and help when needed. We are like our own community and everyone is nice. I also love working on campus. I work for the Military Service Center and we are all like a family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy a lot about the campus. I feel that the University as well as the city has done a great job to turn it around. Origionally my mother was scared for me to go here because she knew of the "old" Akron, but after bringing me to school and visting several times she saw how much it has changed. I lived in a dorm my freshman year and I have decided to live in a dorm my sophmore year as well. The dorms offer a great living location that is central to all the classes, food, and recreational activities to do on campus. The Rec center is amazing, I love swimming, boxing, and playing basketball there. The only downside to living on campus is the food. It is not bad, but it can be hit or miss. Although the addition of the "meal exchange" program has made it really easy to find a good tasting and healthy option anywhere on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Akron was not my first choice in colleges. I was planning on attending Kent State University until I realized the cost and distance from my house were a perfect match. I didn't think I would enjoy my time here at Akron because my friends were going to other colleges. I was wrong. Attending Akron has been one of the best experiences of my life. I am in love with the campus, the professors, and clubs. This campus brought me lifelong friends followed by amazing opportunities. I love everything this campus stands for and I can't wait to come back next fall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Akron is one of the cleanest and safest campuses I have ever been on. I have been taking classes there for the past year and everyone is willing to help. The teachers are always there to help you even when its not there office hours. People go out of there way to make sure that everything is going well for you. There is tutoring offered almost at every corner and counselors who will help you though any problem you might be having. Its a great college and I am so grateful it was my 1st choice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a new student to the University of Akron. My first impression of the campus came with a tour with my Senior class. I was very informative and looked like a place I wanted to be. My second experience came with my new student orientation in the summer. We were able to talk about class size and scheduled our classes for the fall. My family also came and they received a family tour and information as well. I am looking forward to starting my college experience at the University of Akron.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Compared to some other campuses, it is very nice. But there are many areas in need of some major improvement. Many of the classrooms and buildings are outdated, but there is always something fun happening on the campus which is nice when you're looking for something to do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good school for local students! I had a budget, and this school proved to be reasonably priced as well as mentally challenging. It has provided me a variety of opportunities that I don’t know that I would have gotten otherwise. I am proud to forever be a Zip!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Your experience at the University of Akron will really depend on what professors you get. It can be a nightmare or really fun. Make sure you always check your professors on ratemyprofessor before you sign up for a class. University of Akron is largely an engineering school- if you aren't an engineer or something closely related there won't be a lot of opportunities here for you. As a biology major who wants to study botany, I'm still waiting for their 'introduction to botany' class to be available. There's only pretty general classes in the biology field. There are pretty frequent events and giveaways on campus, and the people are pretty nice. Just make sure you hang out with the right people and check your professors and you should be good.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is the perfect fit for me. The campus is beautiful and a little spread out. The staff and professors are usually very kind and helpful. The food options aren't very healthy but there are some good choices overall. Classes are mostly Monday through Thursday, which can cause scheduling conflicts. But overall, this school is a great option to consider.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I truly enjoy going to school here. I'm a mother of two, and I see a great future ahead of us since attending Akron University! I don't partake in many of the campus party life or anything other than a sports game here and there, which my children enjoy. I'd like to see more things for adult students with children on campus though.
