Kettering University is hosting four ‘Dog Days’ events this summer, designed to give prospective students and their families a fun and fast opportunity to visit campus, tour labs and facilities and engage with the University’s talented students and faculty.

The Dog Days of SummerDates for the Dog Days events are July 26 and Aug. 2, 16 and 23. The events are geared to cater to small groups -- usually around 50 prospective students and their family members -- so the interactions with faculty, staff and students can be as engaging and meaningful as possible.

“Dog Days events offer students and their families a really unique opportunity to immerse themselves in life on Kettering’s campus and get an up-close look at the value of a Kettering education,” said Kip Darcy, Kettering University vice president of marketing, communication and enrollment. “The tours touch on all aspects of campus -- academics, our co-op program, the admissions and financial aid process and student life. Dog Days programs are informative and a lot of fun.”

Dog Days events begin at 10 a.m. with registered guests checking in, followed by a short program that gives an overview of Kettering University. It includes presentations for Kettering University administration, staff and students discussing admissions, financial aid, co-op and campus life.

The Dog Days of SummerAttendees are divided into groups and assigned guides for tours of the labs and classrooms on campus, the residence hall, the recreation center and other areas of interest on or near campus.

During lunch following the tours, students and families can interact with current students, faculty and staff and get specific questions answered during an academic expo. The day’s festivities conclude at 1:15 p.m.
