Forever a Zip!
Welcome back, Alumni and Friends!

Saturday, Oct. 4


It's a great year to come home to Akron on Saturday, Oct. 4. Consider arriving early on campus to walk the brick pathways from your days here.

Then, get to InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field before kickoff to catch the marching band and the pregame festivities. It's a great year to come home to Akron.
