Degree: Homeland Security, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

The Emergency Management & Homeland Security program at the University of Akron is an excellent choice for future students who want to get involved in the public safety field. The instructors provide a wide variety of course work that challenges you to understand regulations and current security issues. The professors are involved with the students and offer assistance when needed.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

The schooling, so far has been good. The professors I've had are helpful and responsive. The coursework has been relevant, helpful, and relates to the work I'll be doing as a social worker. The biggest downfall is that the school is large so scholarships, directly from the school, are hard to come by which leaves students with loans and lots of out of pocket expenses. Your best bet for getting books cheaper is to rent or buy from amazon. They are almost double the price at the bookstore. Overall, I give the school a 7/10.

Degree: Physical Education
Graduation Year: 2010

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.

Degree: Audiology/Audiologist
Graduation Year: 0

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.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2012

The University of Akron is a great school for the sciences and technology, not necessarily so much for the humanities.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

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.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2013

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!
