I absolutely LOVE UA Wayne Campus! The teacher /student ratio is small allowing for individual attention. All faculty and staff are passionate about what they do. Everyone has always been so helpful. Costs are less than main campus. The campus is beautiful and I always feel safe. I love our campus so much that I am switching majors just to be able to stay and take all of my classes here rather than transition to main campus. I'm not just a number here, I have a name.

I am currently taking college classes at the University of Akron- Wayne College as a College Credit Plus student. The professors, in my experience, are all so caring and open to helping students with anything they may need. I am constantly pushed to reach the high standards the professors put on me, but it is what is making me better and more prepared to become a full-time student in the fall. One thing I would like to see change at Wayne College, is adding more things to do on campus. There are occasional events that are held outside of class hours, but between classes there is not a lot to do. Overall, I really enjoy taking college classes at Wayne College. I have had fun connecting the gap between high school and becoming a full-time student.
Wayne college is a great school. At times it feels more like a high school than a college. The most important thing I can say about Wayne is that everything it lacks that would make it feel like a college; housing, student activities, and parties, it makes up for with its academics. Particularly the Professors, the professors are all knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach. It is definitely a great school for the price. Unfortunately, I am unable to earn my whole degree here, but I am glad I will get to experience another school before I graduate college.
