University of Akron Reviews
The University of Akron campus is just truly amazing! The scenery is fantastic along with the many routes you can choose to reach your destination. The campus set up is easy to understand and follow, and the emergency booths are a plus. Your safety on campus is really shown. I've been on campus multiple times and its hard not to fall in love with everything about Akron!
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 like the overall atmosphere of the University of Akron. The campus is very inviting and welcoming! I am currently a sophomore living on campus, and I have yet to find something to complain about.
