Overall Experience: My over experience in college is so far fun and creative. I love the dorms and the classrooms are huge. I like going here at university of akron. The things that make my school unique they have alot of good dorms and classes. They also have great food here and your not to far from downtown akron. I wouldn't choose another school because I like this one and I love the experience I will have here. Being here is worth the time its amazing and you will have a good time and you will get your mind off things here and focus on school and have fun at the same time.

Overall Experience: My move in day to the University of Akron is August 26th and I can not wait I'am really looking forward to being a student there. Even though i have not yet been on campus Akron has really helped me by scheduling classes, help me decide where I would like to live on campus and helping me decide what i want to go to school for.

Overall Experience: Great school and professors but the administration isn't doing what they need to.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love going to Akron University, the professors are great and really try to help you when you need it. The school also provides tutors if you need one.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The university of Akron is a decent school but would have liked to go to a better school with a better program for my major.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really like everything about the campus...they can change a couple of little things to make the college experience a lot better for everyone, and they spend their money on things that are not important at all.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Akron is a very fine school, offering the perfect mix of an urban setting and small town attitudes. One feels more like a person instead of a number and the networking opportunities tend to be more powerful with deeper connections in a city the size of Akron in Northeast Ohio.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at the University of Akron has been amazing. It feels like I have found my home away from home and I have met the best friends. The food on campus was pretty good and I loved my freshman dorm. I found an awesome apartment to share with my friends and joined greek life. The campus is really pretty and they have done a lot of work. Also has an awesome rec! It has a great nursing program and I liked all my professors. Overall, great school and wouldn't change a thing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: University of Akron has a great community, followed by outstanding people. There isn't anyone that I yet came across that isn't friendly. The professors are wonderful, they are willing to the time out of their schedule to work with students, if the students are willing to learn. I like how the campus isn't that big of a campus such as a Kent State University. Everything in Akron is a walking distance.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would only choose my school again because it is known for engineering. Other than that, I probably would have gone elsewhere.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Akron is the perfect sized school. For Engineering, the teachers enjoy teaching and care about what they are teaching. My program is a high priority for the school so our teachers and resources are top notch. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I could do it over, I would have chosen to go to a school a little bit further away. It would give me more of a college experience since I am still living at home in that same area. I love the academics on my campus, as well as the atmosphere overall.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really like the university of akron

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Hard courses that challenge me mentally just not physically.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I personally love the college that I attend. I am at the University of Akron. One of the many things that I love about my school is how close it is to home. I am able to travel back and forth easily and conveniently. We have a fantastic work study program where I am able to obtain a job in my intended field. I am apart of a sorority on campus that allows me to get involved in wonderful philanthropy work. Finally, the campus is beautiful and easy to move around.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's okay. They did, however, raise a bunch of fees. Now I don't know if I can afford to stay there. I might have to switch. :/

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not started school yet, but so far I absolutely love it there. All of the students are wonderful and the teachers are amazing. The vibe of campus is amazing. I cannot wait to start school.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wish the university had a financial aid office that was more helpful. I think that the scholarships are hard to come by, but easy to get if you already have school paid off. I think that campus is okay for the most part, but some teachers do not actually want you to succeed.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When I stepped onto the University of Akron campus it felt great and I knew that is where I wanted to further my education.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Akron is a decent school with good science programs. I probably would choose this school again just because it's cheaper and close to my house, but it really is a commuter school. Most students live off campus so you don't really get the typical college experience.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: After taking a number of general education courses and walking through campus, I can only conclude that it is just okay. The professors are either really great or not at all. The campus is designed alright but it doesn't exactly have the college feel. It just feels like I'm walking through a small city within a bigger one. The college has good intentions, but it's not somewhere to go if you really want to experience a college atmosphere and receive top notch education in your desired field.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My experience at The University of Akron has been wonderful. The campus is very urban, and everything is right there close by for easy access. The campus is new and they're still making newer and better changes as of now. The atmosphere is very welcoming and the school spirit is just crazy. Everywhere you turn you meet faculty and students who're friendly and willing to help you.
