Welcome! This is an exciting time to have a son or daughter at The University of Akron, as our University has never been stronger than it is today. Freshmen enrollment has increased about 30 percent since 2005, 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.
