Bridging the Distance is an interactive outreach initiative for alumni and friends of The University of Akron who live in different regions of Ohio, the United States, and the world. At the center of this program is everyone’s favorite marsupial and Akron’s #1 mascot, Zippy! The goal of the Bridging the Distance program is to re-discover, re-engage and re-connect with University of Akron family and friends.
