Student at This School - Grad Year 2011

Overall Rating

U of A is a great school. It has many opportunities for students to get where they want to be in their major. The college life here is quite enjoyable too, everyone is very friendly and outgoing here. And not to mention the diversity is sky rocket which I enjoy a lot with this college, we need diversity to live a exciting life. Overall I would say for prospective students is that U of A is a great school and they are greatly improving it every year passing, if your applying here I would make it a top 3 choice of colleges to attend as you would not want to miss out on the experience at University of Akron.
