UA regional campuses have visit opportunities


ORRVILLE  The University of Akron Wayne College and UA Medina have announced three ways prospective students can visit campus this fall.

With both virtual and in-person options, prospective students and their families are invited to learn what makes UA’s regional campuses desirable educational destinations, according to a news release.

* Emerge 2020, a virtual campus visit experience, will take place on Monday, Oct. 26 from 6-8 p.m. via Zoom. The agenda includes information about UA Wayne College and UA Medina, the admissions process, financial aid, scholarships and a virtual campus tour.

“We want families to learn how to take advantage of the opportunities before them, as UA Wayne College expands four-year degree options, and UA Medina expands to offer the first two-years of most degrees,” said Kristin Foy Samson, admissions counselor.

The evening will also include “break-out rooms” to give attendees the opportunity to learn more about the specific bachelor’s degrees offered at UA Wayne College and to speak directly with the program coordinators. An additional “room” will be hosted by an academic advisor, giving attendees the opportunity to ask general questions about all degrees offered through the University. Registration and additional details can be found online at

* Individual appointments are still available and can be scheduled as virtual or in-person visits. For both options, prospective students can reach out to Foy Samson by calling 330-684-8900 or email at

“It is important for families to remember, for in-person appointments, only the prospective student and one guest will be able to attend,” continued Foy Samson. “We also require face masks while on campus, as safety is our main concern.”

* A virtual 3D tour is available online for anyone wanting to visit on their own. Simply visit or to glance through the viewbook and take the 3D virtual tour for either campus.
