The AK-Rowdies
The AK-Rowdies are the largest student organization at The University of Akron.

If you’re looking to show some school spirit this weekend, this is the place for you. All students will be greeted with free food, drinks, and fun, whether you are part of the AK-Rowdies organization or not.

The tailgate will take place in parking lot 10, located on the corner of Vine and Spicer Street. The AK-Rowdies’ mission is to unite Akron students in supporting our football team. All UA students are admitted to the Zips vs. Cyclones football game at Infocision Stadium-Summa Field free with their Zip Card.
