The Technician is a media organization sponsored by Kettering Student Government and advised by Department of Liberal Studies faculty member Dr. David Marshall. The print newspaper comes out three times per term, informing, entertaining, and energizing the Kettering community by providing information that directly affects the Kettering University community. The Technician also has a web edition.
The Department of Liberal Studies further supports The Technician by offering course credit for written work designed for publication in the college newspaper. Professors Christine Levecq and David Marshall offer assignments that encourage students in their classes to write news and opinion pieces as well as reviews. A considerable number have been published, both in the print and online editions. Both professors believe that it is important to give students practical experience in writing for specific, well-defined audiences.
Writing for The Technician is another way in which Kettering students can get the hands-on experience they seek as well as contribute to the Kettering community. For more information, contact Dr. Christine Levecq, who has taken over for Dr. David Marshall while he is on leave.
