Why students choose Kettering: The simple answer...Kettering is unique; it is not an average, typical university. Therefore, our students, faculty, staff and alumni are far from ordinary. To use my favorite quote courtesy of Winston Churchill "We are all worms. But I believe I am a glow-worm." KU fosters, develops, and enhances glow-worm capabilities.
