“Any educational experience is what you make ofQuite BrightPhysics
Any educational experience is what you make of it - learn as little or as much as possible (or somewhere in between). Kettering provides unique one-on-one environment with experts in their respective fields (something undergraduate students in other schools do not have). It also forces you to work for a company - a priceless experience.
I think that overall the school is decent. I really like some of my teachers/advisers, and I have a great co-op job. The coursework is pretty hard sometimes, and the social life isn't the greatest when compared to other colleges, but it is bearable. If you try to get involved and be social, there are plenty of things to do. For new/incoming students I would recommend getting help as soon as you need it. There are almost always student tutors available. Studying with friends is normally a good idea too, as long as you stay on task.As for cost, the school offers some pretty generous scholarships if you did well in high school and on the ACT/SAT. There are also numerous other scholarships that you can apply for. With the scholarships I received, I pay around $10,000 a year. When you subtract co-op earnings from that, it really isn't bad at all.
There are few international students at Kettering. For me, being an international student, the exposure to Americans has been fun. However, if I was an American, I would not want to go to Kettering since there are so few international students.
