University of Akron Reviews
I will be going into my sophomore year at The University of Akron, but my first year was more than what I expected. All the professors I had were more than willing to help you out with any academic problems. The campus is very nice, and it is so easy to find new friends with all the different groups and clubs they have. I will continue to enjoy my time here for the next 3+ Years here, and I recommend this college to anyone who is on the edge of deciding where to go!
I had great experiences at the University of Akron! All of the professors, other staff and students were so kind and helpful during my visits. It is mostly because of them that I have decided to go to college there this year. Along with the great rated academic programs, The University of Akron is going to be a great fit for me. I would tell others that they may have to get used to being in a large city. I am personally from a very small town so this is one challenge I will definitely have to try and adjust to. The University is also a large school, but once your on the campus, it feels like a very small knit community.
Parking is horrible but there are so many fantastic options on campus.Want to go bowling at 10pm, you can n the student union or goto the movies on the weekend for free, you can do that too! The rec center is nice, I learned to rock climb. Academics are good, lots of choices for majors and minors.Professors love it if students get involved in research. They are so many connections outside of the university it's so nice!
