Kettering University Reviews
Review Kettering University
Kettering University is a wonderful school! The classes you take prepare you for your co-op experiences in your designated fields. The co-op experience has been by far the greatest thing that I've experienced. It lets me experience what I will do in the future with my degree once I graduate. Also with the co-op experience it allows me to manage my money, gain responsibilities living on my own, and gain responsibilities within the company I work for.
I am a transfer student to Kettering from a community college, and haven't found the classes to be that challenging. The challenging part is that they overload you with 16-20 credits in a 11 week semester, and that is what makes the experience more difficult than other schools. Personally, since I have always had to have a job while attending the community college, I was use to this stress so this hasn't been difficult. I have found that many of the professor are much more arrogant than my professors at the community college (even though all the professors I had at the community college were also PhD) making communication or asking for help much more difficult. Kettering has a chip on its shoulder for being the best of the best, but what really makes Kettering a good school is their co-op experience. The co-op experience is great at Kettering and the students are usually paid very well, typically above $14 dollars an hour.
Kettering is not the number one party college in America. Nor is it a household name. But it is a well known name in the industry. Kettering students are known to have standards, values, and experience that cannot be found elsewhere. The reason for this is Kettering's co-op program, which is an unbeatable opportunity. The Kettering campus currently is aging, but new building are being built. The food service is not super, do to an awful contract with the company suduxco. The school does not really have any sports teams per say, but does offer intermerial sports which can be fun.
