'Opening the doors of opportunity'

UA has launched a multimedia campaign that touts the lifetime value of an Akron degree (greatest among Northeast Ohio public universities); the link between our strong internship/co-op program and jobs at Goodyear, Timken, Summa and other major employers; and the $120 million in student awards that UA offers annually, making college more affordable for more people.

In addition to this new commercial, the "Doors of Opportunity" campaign also includes online and newspaper advertising, billboards, Web, social media and e-mail.
