Community college president makes the case for Stark State’s fit in Akron
By Doug Livingston

By the numbers, cheap college makes sense in Akron, where Stark State is making room for 5,000 students when its $14 million campus opens on Perkins Street in the fall of 2018.

Federal grants for some low-income residents — of which there are plenty in Akron — cover nearly half the annual cost of the commuter college’s two-year degree and job certificates. Stark State “aggressively” steers students away from debt. Less than half of students at most community colleges, including 43 percent at Stark State, take out federal loans.

Akron Main St to be Revitalized Thanks to Federal Grant
Author Mark Urycki
Published April 27, 2017

Downtown Akron is going through a traffic revolution.   Some long-time plans and brand new ideas are all coming to fruition at the same time.

The 6 lane freeway that runs through the downtown is quiet now.   The Innerbelt was closed this year after just 30 years in operation.  It’s being replaced with slower boulevards.
