Kettering is known within Michigan and a few other limited areas. I was misled about its reputation. Had I realized how poor a University Kettering is, how expensive it is, how poorly known it is, and worse, I would have not gone here!!
I'm the student in high school that put sport above academics, didn't try at school and still received A's and B's without ever studying for a test. Kettering was a smack in the face, and a good one, it pushes me to do my best and think outside the box all of the time. The new Entrepreneurial approach to the ENTIRE school is really changing the way I look at things. As for remarks on the city, it's really not that bad, plenty of things to do downtown and it's safe, just don't go into bad neighborhoods and no one will ever bother you.My overall experience, Positive!
