Akron has tons of events to attend like Boo at the Roo, comedian shows, hypnotist shows, a movie theatre in the Student Union which occasionally shows movies weeks before they come out in other theatres, musician shows and plenty of other activities...

    I absolutely love it here. What's most impressive was "move in" day. The University of Akron has this process down to a science. You have your set time, a group of volunteer students helps you unload, everything is loaded into shopping carts, and they help you unload in your room. It was a very fast, very well orchestrated process -- one other universities should try and emulate.

    the university of akron has it's ups and downs, but overall i love it here and think it's a great school. it has amazing engineering and nursing programs, a great community of students, a lot of food options, and a nice rec center. it is still a city, which has it's typical issues of robbery and the like, but it's nothing unexpected or out of the ordinary. overall, a great school.

    There is an incredible mismanagement of money, and the administration is a mess. The arts professors are not bad but many science ones are just there to get their research funded and do not care about teaching at all. There could definitely be more parking and food options.

    This school is the closest college to my house in Coventry township, near Firestone Park. The party life is great and noticeable but very loud. It is also very crime ridden, watch out for your belongings and yourself.

    The University of Akron's current administration is really causing it to go downhill. It's still a great school in that is is incredibly diverse in academia, extracurricular, and students and faculty members, though. The food is not that great anymore.

    UA is a fun, energetic school. There are so many awesome people to meet, and most of them are really friendly. I'm so glad to be a part of the UAkron family.

    Akron is a university that is in the city but does not feel like its in a city. It feels like home and has a warm and welcoming climate. Its a great college for many.
