Parents & Family Association


Welcome! This is an exciting time to have a son or daughter at UA, largely because of:

Our students participate in over 250 recognized clubs and student organizations, focused on academics, the arts, athletics, science, music, leadership, service and more.

We are committed to making the transition to college easy for you and your student. We have a number of services available to help students adjust to college life and succeed academically

We hope that you, as well as your son or daughter, will enjoy being members of the Akron family.
