BCAS student receives Game-Changer Award

The Game-Changer award will be presented to eight University of Akron students who embody the I-won’t-take-no-for-an-answer, roll-up-my-sleeves-and-make-it-happen approach that our career-ready graduates are known for.

UA Game-Changers will receive recognition at select Zips football and basketball games throughout the season, and all eight recipients will be presented with a $1,000 prize.
