The voice of more than 12,000 undergraduates at The University of Akron!
What is USG?
The University of Akron’s Undergraduate Student Government is a significant source of communication and support between the undergraduate student body and the administration. We serve the students of The University of Akron! USG is also heavily involved in working with student organizations and ensuring their success. To help make organizations bigger and better, the Undergraduate Activities Fund (UAF) exists to help fund any events you may want to organize for your group. USG is responsible for distributing these funds to organizations. Want to start a New Student Organization? Come see us and we’ll help you get started! USG is always working hard, and while we find projects that help a lot of students, YOU are the ones we want to hear from! Contact us any time, day or night. It’s why we’re here!
