Successful U

Successful U: Your guide to success!

Free! Designed by students, for students!

From the moment students become Zips at orientation and receive UANet IDs and passwords, they can make Successful U a personal “guide to success” and begin The Akron Experience.

They can use this guide throughout their time here to get involved, get connected and get ahead in their coursework.

As alums, they can continue to suggest content or share their stories to help inspire other Zips. Submit your content suggestions here.

The Successful U app is truly a tool that helps create The Akron Experience, starting from the moment students become Zips throughout a lifetime.

Successful U app for student achievementAchievement engine

Students can set goals and connect with University resources in six foundational areas:

  • academics and career,
  • financial awareness,
  • leadership and volunteerism,
  • personal growth and wellness,
  • health and fitness, and
  • personal relationships. 

Progress toward goals can be shared through social media. Also included are inspirational words from leaders far and wide (and soon, successful University alumni!).
