A group of Kettering's best students are providing hands-on direction for the next class of entering freshmen. The COMPASS CREW is composed of student volunteers who have been selected for their potential to plan Kettering's orientation program and to serve as role models for the incoming freshmen class.
Adviser Laura Sullivan said the students have been meeting throughout the year to design a four-day orientation program for new students to attend in July.
Kettering's programs will include speakers, who will address topics ranging from academic and professional integrity to alcohol awareness. There will be plenty of fun, too -- such as a scavenger hunt in Flint and a movie night at McKinnon Theatre on campus.
