The day will be packed with tours, information and demonstrations that show why Kettering is a nationally ranked Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and Business university and why Kettering University alumni have, on average, the highest starting salaries of any college graduate in the state of Michigan, according to PayScale.com.

“Discover will give families the opportunity to see firsthand the many opportunities Kettering University students are exposed to on a daily basis,” said Tracie Jones, Kettering University director of admissions. “The Discover activities touch on all aspects of campus, including academics, our co-op program, the admissions and financial aid process and student life. They are designed to be informative and fun and capture the spirit and energy of what happens on campus on a daily basis.”

Panel sessions include: an overview of co-op and experiential learning that details how students gain professional experience in real jobs with our more than 550 corporate partners; a discussion led by current students about what life is like at Kettering University; a transfer student information session; a FIRST Robotics discussion exhibiting how Kettering and FIRST go hand-in-hand; and an overview of the financial aid process.

Activities include: the Kettering Expo, which features students and faculty from all academic departments at Kettering in one place; a student and faculty poster session displaying some of the innovative research that students have the opportunity to participate in as undergraduates; and guided tours of the University, including the state-of-the-art labs, the residence hall, the recreation center, the newly renovated student center and much more.
