University of Akron Reviews
The University of Akron is a wonderful place to be. They offer really helpful and really awesome services. The campus is beautiful and the buildings are nice. In my two full-time semesters, I've had amazing professors who teach really well and care about their students, no matter the size of the class. The new president is trying to do amazing things here at Akron, and I'm thankful to be a part of it. The only downfalls I have with the University are the cost of tuition, even though so much is included the rate is somewhat high, the food is expensive and the places to eat on campus are always packed, and I'm constantly wasting money on books simply because they are the University of Akron edition. If 'm paying a crazy amount of money to be here, it should include my books or food since those are the two money monsters. Besides those three setbacks, the University is an awesome place to be and I've recommended it to many people and will continue to recommend to more in the future!
The city of Akron is the perfect place for a university. It is a safe area with great food, beautiful parks, fun (and free) museums, the Aero's Stadium, the Akron Marathon...too much to name it all! It's not expensive to live in Akron, and if you have time after studying, Cleveland and Columbus are very close and offer more attractions. The University of Akron has a beautiful, safe campus. Faculty and advisers are supportive and knowledgeable.
The U of A has really been a great learning experience for me. The advisors there are wonderful and will definitely try their best to keep you on the right track ti make your college experience as easy as possible. Also, the way of transportation at the University of Akron is also another great feature! Even on weekends , they still assist you with having a nice night out of fun safely. What makes this place so wonderful is that we have a variety of food places next to us that we can eat and enjoy, study and hang out with friends at. It's a great place to be here at the university and I'm very excited at how this university will grow in the near future.
