UA launches two career-focused programs with a military flavor July 3

The University of Akron today announced several new student initiatives to create additional opportunities for student success and career preparation through the launch of a Corps of Cadets and Leadership Academy.

The new Corps of Cadets and Leadership Academy will leverage existing and planned leadership opportunities at UA, including those for academic credit offered by the various colleges. In addition, UA is adding some new leadership development and veteran-oriented scholarships.

“This marks the sixth initiative in the past four months to reposition the University as Ohio’s Polytechnic University,” said UA President Scott L. Scarborough. “The Corps of Cadets and Leadership Academy fit perfectly into the polytechnic identity by offering career-focused, highly experiential learning that will greatly benefit each student. It also will add an exciting new element to the life of campus.”

Scarborough added, “We know that employers value the discipline and leadership training that the military instills in young men and women. These initiatives enable students who want to add those aspects to their college education to do so without taking on an obligation to serve in the armed forces.”

The Corps of Cadets and Leadership Academy will be headed by Lt. Col. Bradley Harvey, a career U.S. Army officer and the recently retired and highly respected professor of military science for UA’s Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program. He will begin his new duties July 13, 2015. Story continues online.

Erin Seigferth spray painting design on wall

The Highland Square neighborhood west of campus is shining a little brighter these days, thanks to a massive mural created by high school students from the Akron Public Schools and UA art students. Crew members, including Erin Seigferth, above, an incoming freshman, and Katie Butler, at right, who is earning a BFA in Painting, learned new techniques as they collaborated to design, draw and paint the mural on the 2,000 square-foot brick wall shared by Land of Plenty, a vintage shop and gallery, and West Hill Hardware on Market Street.

Katie Butler spray paints design from liftThe mural, the ninth and largest public art project created by Arts LIFT, has been guided by Arts LIFT coordinator Elisa Gargarella, professional street artist Steve Ehret, and Land of Plenty owner and artist Kristi Wall.

The award-winning summer arts apprenticeship program is offered by UA’s Myers School of Art. This year’s project spanned June 15-26, with work happening in Folk Hall and on-site at Land of Plenty. Rubber City Fab metalworkers and Sherwin Williams were project supporters.

The Arts LIFT artists will unveil the completed mural during a free public celebration on Thursday, July 9, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Land of Plenty, 339 W. Market St. Local bands Shivering Timbers and Tall Tales will perform, followed by DJ Jay Soiree. Hollyhock Catering will provide refreshments.

Adrena May, Sarang Bhaway and Kyle Hayes

UA students competing in the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) collegiate table tennis and 9-ball billiards championships hosted here June 25-27 did Akron proud.

The table tennis tournament consisted of two round robin events — doubles and singles. Sarang Bhaway, who is earning a Ph.D. in Polymer Engineering, and Kyle Hayes, a mechanical engineering major, controlled the tables June 26, taking first place in doubles. On June 27, Bhaway won the singles competition by going undefeated — 5-0. (Adrena May from the ACUI is pictured above with Bhaway, left, and Hayes during the awards ceremony.)

In billiards, Zachary McKee, a graduate student in applied mathematics, took fourth place and Kevin Slepecky, a chemical engineering major, tied for fifth. These are the highest national rankings for the ACUI billiards tournament for any Akron students.
