Ebola: What is Wayne College Doing?

As concern grows over the spread of Ebola, I want to take a moment to assure our students, parents, and the community that we are committed to maintaining the highest level of campus safety, which includes matters of health and wellness. The University of Akron is located in Summit County. Therefore, notices were sent to UA students to keep them informed of the latest information. See Ebola: What is The University of Akron Doing?

We encourage everyone, in light of this recent news and as we enter into flu season, to be vigilant about good hygiene to limit the spread of infections. See here for healthy tips.

Wayne College: Applied Learning is in the DNA

Wayne College biology professor A.J. Snow believes that students learn best by doing, and that belief -- along with significant community support -- has helped him create one of the most technologically advanced biology labs in the area.

Over $40,000 in new lab equipment, donated by local individuals and businesses, will be available to Wayne College students this fall. The equipment includes a microscope with a digital camera and Wi-Fi capabilities, a PCR machine that allows students to amplify DNA as they would for a crime scene investigation, and a plate reader for protein based tests common in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industry.
