After University of Akron

I have been attending the University of Akron for 3 years and I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The classes can be challenging, but are also very interesting. There are some great professors and some that make me question why they ever became an educator. I am in the college of education and the classes are amazing. I have been in the program for 2 years and I have learned and extremely large amount of helpful information. The professors want you to succeed. If I could change one thing about the university, it would be the extra curricular activities. I believe that there should be a larger variety of clubs. Most of the clubs are on campu are for medical students, business students, and racial specific groups. It would be nice if ther were more education clubs because I've how many students major in education.

The University of Akron is a nice school. The campus is smaller for a state school and there is a lot of diversity. There should be more security because there seems to be a lot of robberies of students by random people on the West side of campus by downtown Akron. If you stay aware of your surroundings however you'll be fine. The school is remodeling the campus so it will look great for incoming students. There are a lot of student activities to do throughout the school year and every year the school holds a giant party in the middle of campus that has a famous musician and lots of games and some exotic animals.
