The University of Akron is a public university in downtown Akron, Ohio with nearly 30,000 students. Although not the most well-known or prestigious university out there, it does have some highly nationally ranked programs (the Industrial/Organizational Psychology graduate program, the College of Business Administration, the College of Engineering, and The College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering). It is also home to the Archives of the History of American Psychology (which contains materials from some of psychology's most famous experiments, like Milgram's shock experiments) and the 2010 Division 1 National Champion soccer team.
Although I'm sure this reads like an advertisement, that's definitely not the intent. I'm just a current student who strongly disagrees that this is "the shittiest excuse for a school ever created". The school's not perfect (parking sucks--although it's improved slightly with the opening of the newest parking deck, they do have some douchetastic professors, etc), but the only other urbandictionary entry for the school as of this writing is pretty much a load of shit.
