    No matter how many sports, clubs, activities, parties, etc. you can find on any campus, the real reason you are in college is to get a degree. At Akron, you can get a degree without being in tons of debt (if commuting and not living on campus) and without stressing to much. I say its a great bang for your buck.

    Tuition is reasonably priced compared to near-by schools but books are highly priced on campus. I would recommend buying them online, or at a bookstore not on campus.

    This is a public university, and it has the tuition of a public university. Tuition is 356 per credit hour, which is not bad. What they will get you on is the $5000 per semester meal plan and room and board package. So I would say go here, but find an apartment.

    Akron is an affordable school and they want to see you succeed and will help you and your family as much as needed. Financial Aid is really helpful here and they make the process quick and easy. Akron has a lot to offer, and for the price, I can't find a complaint in the world.
