The day I was accepted, I was added to a Google Group for accepted students with all kinds of resources and today, I received the actual acceptance package!
The package was literally 3/4 of an inch thick and contained information on just about every aspect of student life and about Akron as a place to live. It even contained a DVD which I haven't looked at yet.
I hope that I will be fortunate enough to get into my first choice, but if not and I have to choose from amongst my safeties, it is this kind of attention that will weigh heavily upon my decision.
Thanks again Akron! This sort of balanced out the fact that I was deferred at UAR - Little Rock today

No offense taken, it's awful.
I will admit one thing about Akron, though. For all the bad mouthing they receive for spamming more qualified persons via CRS, they do the MOST amazing job of welcoming you to their school. I've been put in contact with numerous #Ls, alumni from location a, b, c. Several emails from faculty. Just a great overall welcome from them. No other school I've applied to has done the same. Tremendous recruiting effort.

So if safety and friendliness is something you're looking for - I imagine you could find it there.
