John from Mogadore, OH
The University of Akron is allowing me to enjoy my time as a college student here on campus while teaching me what I will need for the future. Additionally, Akron has offered me a variety of groups and organizations to become involved with, so that I can enjoy my time here while joining organizations that interest me. Finally, Akron has made campus to feel like home, even though I am away from my home.
