Discover Kettering Nov. 8

Oct 31, 2008

Kettering University's fall open house will showcase academics and faculty, co-op opportunities and student activities and more from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8.

Kettering University has the faculty, the labs, and the programs to bring theory and practice together in engineering, business, math, science and technology better than any other learning environment.  That’s why Kettering has planned an open house from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 8, at its campus in Flint. “Discover Kettering” is open to anyone wanting to see how Kettering takes hands-on learning to the next level, said Frank Hribar, vice president for Enrollment Services.

Kettering has some of the best engineering facilities available to undergraduates in the world, Hribar explained.  “Our faculty will be in the classrooms and labs, ready to talk to students and parents who want to experience the campus during our Discover Kettering open house. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss Kettering’s world-class co-op program, majors, minors, and academic concentrations, such as computer gaming and system and date security.  Kettering’s new Pre-Med program will be featured, too,” he added. 

Breakfast starts at 9:30 a.m., followed by a Welcome to all participants at 10 a.m. Guests attending “Discover Kettering” will see Kettering’s Crash Safety Center, the Fuel Cell Center, and labs in acoustics, lasers and a wind tunnel.  

Prospective students and their families will have a chance to meet current faculty and students, tour campus facilities and find out more about the Kettering advantage of a real-world education coupled with real-world job experience. A highlight of the day will be an Academic Expo from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.   

A separate Kettering University Expo from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. will allow families to learn more about student life, including the residence hall and recreation center, and Flint.  Students can meet with admissions, co-op and financial aid representatives.  A panel of current Kettering students will tell stories about their class and job experiences.  A special session is offered for transfer students.

Although Discover Kettering is an open house, registration for the program is preferred by calling (800) 955-4464, ext. 7865, or visit:
