University of Akron Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (9)
It was a cheaper option than most schools. With the price came some compromise in quality of education and the entire experience. there's no such thing as a 4 year degree at this school.
My undergraduate work was at the College of Wooster and going to a small liberal arts school was the best decision I ever made. It's about so much more than the classwork. College should not be viewed as a technical school it should be viewed as an experience and I think Wooster provided that. My graduate work was more clinically based but it was very helpful and I am very proud of the degree I will be receiving and the work I put in to get there. My college education is invaluable and I am so happy I chose what I did.
Great college for engineering. Lots of cooperative programs to work as you go to school. Huge opportunities to improve yourself.
The University of Akron is a great school for the sciences and technology, not necessarily so much for the humanities.
Moderately sized urban campus. Main campus focus is Engineering
The University of Akron is a great institution for higher learning. The engineering, polymer science, and nursing programs are all very strong. I wish the biology department would have had a larger budget to offer a wider variety of environmental biology classes.The atmosphere on and around campus is great. Not a huge school in which you get lost but not too small in which you would miss out on the true college experience. Earning my B.S.in Biology at the University of Akron has allowed me to become employed by the U.S.Fish and Wildlife Service.
I went in the evenings as I worked full time during the day. For a working mother, it was convenient. The content of the courses in my major was redundant however, and the degree seemed to be 'fluff.' I also took off campus classes and still had to pay full tuition, which was ridiculous because we had none of the amenities campus offered. We didn't even have wi-fi!
Best local engineering school.
The college of nursing adequately prepared me to pass my NCLEX/boards. It is close to so many hopsitals for clinicals including a pediatric hospital. The program has advanced technology to aide in learning i.e. sim man for simulations.
