Discovering Diversity Day is a visit experience designed for academically prepared students from ethnically underrepresented groups who are considering enrollment at The University of Akron. During this visit in February, guests have an opportunity to learn more about UA’s multicultural excellence and support, academic programs, financial aid and scholarships, campus life, student life and more.
Senior Day: A to Zip Programs are designed for seniors in high school. These programs provide you with information about the enrollment process, academic programs, financial assistance, student life and so much more. Senior Days are held in February and March.
Spring Visit Day, which occurs in April, is designed especially for juniors in high school to learn about the application process, academic programs, scholarships, financial aid, residence life and housing, the Honors College and more.
Summer Visit Day is a chance for rising juniors and seniors to learn about the application process, financial aid and scholarships, academic programs, residence life and housing, the Honors College and more. Summer Visit Day takes place in June and July.
You & the Roo Shadow Program
Intrigued by campus life at UA? Admitted high school seniors have the chance to shadow a current UA student during UA’s spring semester, January through April, each year. Every effort is made to pair guests with hosts in the same academic major. However, if a match can’t be made, the prospective student has the option of a special appointment with the department of their intended major.
The visit is free for prospective students; a lunch pass and Student Union game room pass also are provided. So, the full experience of an Akron student can be taken for a “test drive!” Please note the student must be a senior in high school and admitted to UA. Also, these visits are scheduled during the spring semester (January through April) only. If you are interested in participating, please e-mail the Office of Admissions at email@example.com.
