    UofA is has made improvements to campus in recent years. Strong 'commuter' vibe on campus. Close to downtown.

    University of Akron in an amazing college with a beautiful campus in the fall. There is a great student life here with many free activities to attend and many community service oppurtunities.

    Nice campus for the area it is in. Parking can be a pain as most people commute but just get there 30 minutes early and you shouldn't have a problem. Nice school overall.

    I am a post secondary (dual enrolled) student through Akron U and my current high school, and i absolutely love the professors here. They are so down to earth and willing to get in contact with you when ever you need help, all you have to do is ask and you will receive. Akron U is a friendly, learning based community and every thing on campus is designed towards a better learning experience, high school and college students alike.

    The university of Akron has a beautiful campus with many aesthetically pleasing features. Numerous classes that you will take have nothing to do with your actual degree. But at least you get to walk around that nice campus whilst blowing money.

    I could not have picked a better school to start my college career with. The professors were all willing to help because they wanted you to learn and the campus was beautiful as well; that made the long days full of class not seem so bad. I am proud to say that I was an Akron Zip!
