'Opening the doors of opportunity'

UA has launched a multimedia campaign that touts the lifetime value of an Akron degree (greatest among Northeast Ohio public universities); the link between our strong internship/co-op program and jobs at Goodyear, Timken, Summa and other major employers; and the $120 million in student awards that UA offers annually, making college more affordable for more people.
