How your gift can extend John Buchtel's legacy...and your own

The Buchtel College of Arts & Sciences was founded in 1870 by Akron industrialist John Buchtel and nurtured into a world class university by generations of hard working Northeast Ohio residents. 

Built to create opportunities for our children...to build a better life for their children...Our college still stands today as a cornerstone of opportunity for Northeast Ohio families and communities!

Your support can help us honor the tradition of serious intellectual inquiry that John Buchtel envisioned, our parents and grandparents extended, and we now strengthen to pass onto our children.

Please consider giving online to support our college.
