Wonderful, quiet campus. Excellent teachers and staff, who are very thorough with their work. The cost of education here is extremely affordable. My favorite things about this campus is the Student Union and the FREE 3D printing lab. If you're looking at going to Akron main, but live in Wayne County, I recommend you save some money and go here for a year or two, it is the perfect way to transition from High School to College.

One of the best options for a high school student to consider - CCP classes are available at no cost through many high schools, and post-secondary options are still out there. This college is directly connected to The University of Akron, one of the top schools for the sciences.Although there are those that put down the community college option, it is foolish to pay more when you can get the same high quality education that will provide you with a successful career pathway. Don't turn your nose at such an economically wise option. Employers certainly won't fault you for making a fiscally responsible decision. Instead, it just might get you hired.
