The University of Akron

The original name for the university of Akron is Buchtel College. The University of Akron began in 1913 as Buchtel College. Originally affiliated with the Universalist Church, Buchtel College was officially transferred to the city of Akron, hence becoming the University of Akron.

Although "The University of Akron" remains the institution's official name, it's commonly and incorrectly referred to as "Akron University" by locals.
