4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The Kettering experience is something not to pass up if given the opportunity. It is one of the best engineering schools in the country.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: The overall living experience isn't great considering the city it is located in and the surrounding area.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is the vast majority of Kettering.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Kettering has only intramural sports. They are quite popular and people do attend but the large majority of students do not attend.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Kettering University is a great school overall but it is far from perfect.

The best thing about it is the co-op experience. Not only do you gain job experience, but you are able to start networking with colleagues and other individuals. The relationship with employers is already there before you are hired on full-time.

One of the bad things about Kettering is the work load your classes expect of you. It is a typical (and sometimes more difficult) engineering curriculum except it is packed into only 10 weeks per semester as opposed to 16 weeks at another University. The work load can sometimes leave you feeling depressed and anxious since you are required to manage your time and activities at a very fast rate.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Some professors are outstanding while others need some work. They all are experts in their fields so they know what they are teaching well but their teaching styles and personality may not fit what the new generations are looking for in a professor. They all want their students to succeed. There are many different types of classes offered for all majors available.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The Co-Op program provides great internship opportunities for all students. There are also some on campus jobs that can be found and applied for but there are only so many. Our Co-op advisors help in the beginning and when if a student decides to change companies they will help you out between the job fairs that come to campus.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: Campus safety can be seen anywhere on campus. They are always around and we have stations around campus that you can presh the blue button and they will show up. Even though Kettering is located in Flint, Michigan it is safe on campus and the blocks around campus.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: The dorms are very spacious and your suitemate can be closed out if you do not get along or need just need some privacy. It is nice to get to know everyone on all the floors during orientation by the units. There is also many opportunities to have a good time from ice cream socials to movie nights there is something different each week. The only problem I had was the wifi. Since the building is all brick the wifi is only accessible in the speciified unit rooms.

5 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life at Kettering Univeristy is a major part of campus. Considering the social atmosphere of campus, most of the students are greek. There is only 3 sororities on campus due to the ratio of guys to girls. Since Kettering is located in Flint, Michigan they play a major role in helping the community to turn around and look and become great again. Non-Greeks don't act any different towards Greeks. The non-greeks are invited to the same things greeks are so it is a nice balance and everyone can join in.

3 College Student

Athletics: Kettering University only offers Intermural sports. There are fans that are other students just looking for a good time. Many of the faternaties and sororities take participate the intermural sports. We have a nice Football field but it rarely gets used which is unfortunate.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I love the professors here at Kettering. They treat you like a person and the small class sizes allow you to learn in a welcoming environment. Definitely well-versed in their material and willing to take time out of their day for your well-being.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Kettering has an amazing Co-op program which gets you right into the field and let's you develope skills you need. This helps with finding a job after graduation along with the fact that you can say that you have 2.5 years of real world experience. Super high hire rate, I think it's around 90+%.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: The campus feels completely safe. There is a small police station near campus and the campus is well lit at night. It also has cameras and security in many places.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: The resident hall is a great place to grow and meet new people during Freshman year. I am actually becoming a Resident Assistant to continue the growth of this community.

4 College Student

Greek Life: I did not go Greek, but they play a very important role. They participate in the community a lot. Kettering is in Flint, Michigan and both Kettering and the fraternities/ sororities have put efforts forth to improve the community.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I love this school, from the small size to its direct focus on STEM and Business. The professors are great, I've had professor who wasn't the best, but it's a needle in a haystack. The co-op program is great and if you plan on getting into the automotive field, there really isn't a much better place than Kettering, formerly General Motors Institute.

5 College Student

Greek Life: I believe we are ranked in the top for Greek Societies on college campuses. They are active in the Flint area and are always working on some sort of community service.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Kettering University has a great set of professors that are experts in their fields. They care about teaching you the information needed in the short 11 week terms.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Being in Flint, you would expect Kettering to be a dangerous place, but Campus Safety does a great job of keeping it safe. They also built a Flint Police station right across the street from campus. As far as sexual assault goes, I've never heard of any incidents on campus, so I can't provide an accurate account of that.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The majority of professors are very passionate about the subject they teach. Some professors can be hard to follow/understand, due to a wide band of cultures and languages, but they are always willing to help you out, if needed.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is no better program in the country than Kettering's co-op program. You start in a co-op job from your very first freshman term (I was hired before I even started school). Kettering also has one of the highest job placement rates for their students, post graduation. The co-op program is second to none, and provides invaluable job experience.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is decent, but fairly high priced. The best part is that you can be anywhere on campus within 5 minutes.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Over 40% of Kettering is Greek, and there's plenty of houses to choose from. No one pressures you to join, and many of my friends have gone Greek and invite me to all their functions.
