UA students win LaunchTown competition

Mariam Crow left, and Kathleen Stitzlein, graduate students in biomedical engineering, accept the LaunchTown Entrepreneurship top prize of $10,000 Thursday for the continued development of Cannibuster, a marijuana detection sensor that allows law enforcement to check levels of THC  — a chemical found in marijuana — using a quick, accurate roadside device which delivers test results in minutes instead of weeks. The LaunchTown prize will allow the team to create partnerships with law enforcement departments in states where marijuana has been legalized to discern final device requirements from the end user’s perspective.

'Open carry' walk planned for Saturday April 25
1:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
A group promoting gun rights will conduct an "open carry" walk on UA main campus at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 25.

The group plans to walk with holstered guns across campus. Similar events have been held on other university campuses in Ohio without incident.

The University of Akron is a public institution and its land and open spaces are public property. As such, access to those grounds is permissible when an activity is conducted within legal requirements and university rules.

In this case, the law permits these types of so-called “open carry” activities, provided that the organizing group and its participants comply with the law.

The group has discussed the event with University police. UAPD will be on site to ensure that the laws are followed.

SpringFest 2015 — Parking updates April 26 - May 1
Time: n/a
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image

We are just over a week away from SpringFest 2015! Even if you are not planning to attend this year’s event on May 1, please review this year’s parking restrictions, as it may affect your regular commute.

Here's what you need to know about parking restrictions:


  • The entry to the ground level of the South Campus Parking Deck (Lot 36) will close Sunday, April 26, at midnight in preparation for SpringFest on Friday, May 1. Vehicles may exit this area throughout the week but reentry will not be permitted.

  • The Carroll Street circles at the Student Union (Lot 18) and the Rhodes Arena (lot 57) will be closed the entirety of Friday, May 1, for SpringFest. Roo Express shuttle buses and delivery vehicles will maintain access. All vehicles must vacate the posted areas by midnight Thursday, April 30, or face towing at owners' expense.

  • The rooftop (including ramps) of the South Campus Parking Deck (Lot 36) as well as the entire Exchange Street Parking Deck (Lot 39), including the surface parking and pedestrian bridges, will also be closed the entire day for the fireworks show that evening. The access road running between the Schrank Parking Deck and Exchange Street Parking Deck will also be closed the entire day. All vehicles must vacate the posted areas by midnight Thursday, April 30, or face towing at owners' expense.

  • Alternate accessibility parking will be available in the Schrank Parking Deck (Lot 37) until 6 p.m. for the start of the fireworks show. After 6 p.m., all vehicles should be removed from the Schrank Parking Deck.

  • In preparation for the fireworks show, at about 8:30 p.m., access to Carroll Street east of Buckeye Street, the Schrank Parking Deck (Lot 37) and the Exchange Street Parking Deck (Lot 39) will be completely restricted (including access for pedestrians). This closure will last for the duration of the fireworks, until about 10:30 p.m. This extra time is to clear away debris and safely dispose of any fireworks that were not set off.


For those attending SpringFest, we encourage you to park in the North Campus Parking Deck (Lot 26), East Campus Parking Deck (Lot 1), or South Campus Parking Deck (except rooftop or ground level). Keep in mind that you will not be able to gain access to any of the areas that are closed or restricted for the fireworks show, even by foot, so you may need to use an alternate route when walking back to your car at the conclusion of the event.

The 10th Annual Walk A Mile In Her Shoes - Akron, Ohio

The mission behind Walk A Mile In Her Shoes is to change the way individuals view gender roles. MSWSA will work with The Rape Crisis Center of Medina and Summit to raise community awareness of sexual violence and gain support for their programming through this conscience raising event.

This year as we celebrate the 10th Annual Walk A Mile In Her Shoes at Downtown Akron’s Lock 3 Park we focus on the heroism of survivors and bystanders as they speak-out and step-up.

In raising awareness, we can challenge the way we, as human beings, interact with one another and elevate our societies respect for our differences.

If you would like to donate please visit: https://www.firstgiving.com/team/293143
