STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Todd Dickerhoof, a University of Akron Engineering student, on the site of his paid internship

I chose UA specifically for its engineering program. All of my professors have been great. When I graduate, I have a job lined up with Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., where I had six co-ops over my college career.
