The Akron Experience is your journey to success. It brings together all of the exceptional resources of The University of Akron and its community and business partners to create a personalized path for each student, from the first day on campus through a lifetime of achievement.
The Akron Experience is guided by a passionate commitment to each student, with faculty and staff dedicated to helping you find your own way and stay on track. It creates connections between classroom, research labs and career-related opportunities that broaden your horizons and prepare you for jobs or advanced degrees. Classroom insights are connected to real world problem solving to ensure that academic achievements link to personal and professional success after graduation.
The Akron Experience continues beyond your diploma as you become a leader in your community, an innovator, creator, contributor and an alum who remains engaged with The University of Akron to help other students along their journeys.
