OrgSync

What is OrgSync?

OrgSync is a web application that allows students and faculty to join, organize, manage and communicate with registered student organizations and their members and stay updated on campus events. It may even resemble a “Facebook” atmosphere strictly for The University of Akron’s campus. See Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Contact the SOuRCe to organize a training to help you or your group best utilize OrgSync by emailing one of our Graduate Assistants at sugradasst5@uakron.edu.
