What is RooConnect?

RooConnect is a web application that allows students and faculty to join, organize, manage and communicate with registered student organizations and their members. RooConnect is strictly for University of Akron's campus.

If your student organization is interested in learning more about RooConnect, come to one of our training sessions at the beginning of the Fall semester. You are also always welcome to stop by the SOuRCe to ask us questions, we will be happy to help you!
