THE GOOD AND THE BAD – The good: small school, easy to navigate, small personal classes. Some of the business instructors are great, genuinely care about student success and I learned a lot in their classes. Even though there was a lot of work, they made learning fun. Free popcorn on Thursdays. The library: The library staff is the best. The librarian is always so helpful. They need more computers hooked to printers.
The bad: the rude behavior of the Dean towards students, some of te population that attends this school are not serious about an education, some of the instructors have NO clue what they are doing and I believe that some instructors actually hate the students and teaching. My accounting class changed the course schedule five times during a session! The instructor of critical thinking seems to pick on certain students in the class: I was glad I was not one of them because the instructor was cruel and hateful.
Good and bad: One of the instructors justs gives you the answers which is good if you want an easy A, but bad if you want to learn the materials.
Summary: If you want to have a chance at getting a decent job, go to a university with a better reputation, like Akron U. or Kent State. They do not cost more tha this school.

I love Akron Institute of Herzing University. This college is an amazing university. You have very many resources that are available for you. You can get help as much as needed and the teachers are always willing to help you out when you need it! Herzing University is everything I ever looked for in a college and I am glad to be part of the student population there!

Wow, What a Dump! Just amazing that anyone, i mean anyone, would waste their money coming to this dump! this degree is absolutely worthless! People actually laugh when they see where you went to college. You have to be a really freaking idiot to THINK that a &quot;Akron Institute&quot; degree is EVER going to be looked favorably upon. Go to KENT! Costs the same and is actually respected.
