Dog Days at Kettering University offers a fun and “summertime casual” way for high school and transfer students who are interested in engineering, business, math, science and technology to explore college life.Dog Days graphic

“This is a great chance to tour campus, mingle with current students and professors while experiencing what The Kettering Advantage has to offer,” said Karen Full, director of Admissions.  “We encourage families to pick one of our Dog Day events – Aug. 3, 10 and 17 – to hear more about admissions, tour campus and enjoy a picnic with the campus community.  It is summertime casual and fun for all of us,” she said.

Full said the campus is ready to show high school and community college students and their families how to “learn more, experience more and achieve more” with Kettering’s paid work experience and experiential learning program.  “There is simply no substitute for experience in today’s marketplace,” she said.  “Kettering connects students to learning outside the classroom as early as their freshman year.  And Kettering has some of the best engineering facilities available to undergraduates in the world.”
