University of Akron Reviews
The University of Akron is a very modern campus located in the heart of Akron. In the past few years there have been many renovations on campus. The law building was recently renovated a year ago and the Business administration building is in the early stages of a renovation currently. There do come some downsides to being located in the heart of Akron. Occasionally a homeless person will wander on to campus and ask students for money. But I have never heard of them getting violent. There's plenty of clubs to join and friendly people if you're the social type. If you're not, that's okay too! Tons of kids just go to class and go home and they still have a great experience due to the excellent professors that are on campus.
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.
