About Kent State University and the University of Akron:

Kent State University and University of Akron are two premier public universities in Northeast Ohio. Both attract students from around the globe; however a great majority of the student body for each institution comes from within a 100 mile radius. KSU has a made a recent strategic effort to recruit from along the east coast (and has invited Hillel to assist with those efforts). Kent State is known for its schools of fashion, communications, education and business. University of Akron has a world renowned polymer sciences school. Kent State has been a leader in service learning sending students to the gulf coast for many years and focusing on local immersive service learning projects as well. Kent State is a strong partner in our work and we enjoy being an indispensible partner to the university. Kent State and University of Akron enjoy a healthy and fun athletics rivalry.

 

About Northeast Ohio:

Our staff is evenly divided between living in Akron and Cleveland, but all would agree that Northeast Ohio is a hidden jewel. The area boasts one of the best Metropark systems, a world renowned arts and culture center in Cleveland, a vibrant music scene that brings local and nationally known artists, some of the best public and private schools in the country. Its affordability (and lack of traffic!) is incomparable to most regions that have such amenities. Hearty Northeast Ohioans enjoy all four seasons!

 

The Jewish communities in Akron and Cleveland are large enough to have your choice from a variety synagogues and Jewish organizations and cultural opportunities- but small enough that you’ll soon know people at the kosher butcher. They offer big city opportunities with mid-west appeal.
