On 10.10.20, thousands of UA Alumni and friends around the world joined in virtual celebration to commemorate The University of Akron's 150th Anniversary. Take a look at some of the evening's entertainment, video messages, and reactions on social media.
We want to thank our elected officials, who sent videos, notes of congratulations, and official recognition of our Sesquicentennial. This recognition included the reading of our 150th Anniversary into the Congressional record in both the U.S. House and Senate, and the receiving of a commendation from the Ohio Department of Higher Education. We appreciate your support and well-wishes!
So many alumni and friends shared their excitement and celebration on social media with #UA150. Here are some of our favorites.
