The University of Akron, located in Akron, Ohio, is one of the top public research universities. It is part of the USO (University System of Ohio) and a STEM-focused institute, ranked amongst “R2: Doctoral Universities – High research activity." 

UA offers 200 undergraduate and 100+ graduate majors and has an enrollment of about 18,000 or more students who represent 46 U.S. states and 71 foreign countries.



Following the annual convention of the Universalist Church of the state of Ohio, a prominent businessman and Universalist, John R. Buchtel contributed to the funding of the new university that would be named Buchtel College. Fellow Akronites helped donate as well and the school was founded three years later, in 1870. 

Later on, in 1907, the college became non-denominational, ditching their Universalist affiliation. During the year 1967, it would finally become a state university, now known as The University of Akron.
