First off, everyone thinks of this school as a big nerd school because it is basically a school filled with engineers. I thought that too before I got there. I am in B section, so it may be different in A section, but if you want to find a party, there is one. There are about 5 or 6 frats the throw parties every friday and saturday night (and you can always find some people at one of the houses to go out and party on weekday nights if thats what you want). So if you are doubting the school because there is just going to be a bunch of nerds, its not like that. Yes, there are nerds, but they tend to stay in the dorms and not leave. As for greek life. I just accepted a bid to one of the biggest houses on campus, and so far it seems like the brothers are so tight. I know alot of people who came up here and were completely anti-greek but were changed by the greek system at kettering. As for academics, the program is good. Just about noone studied before they came up here. If you play it right, you wont be studying every night, but you will have to study because the courses are challenging. As for the area…its flint. You cant expect too much but its not as bad as its cracked up to be. I havent heard of any car getting broken into in the past 10 weeks i have been there. As long as you dont wander into the wrong areas, you will be fine. Personally, i thought about going to University of Illinois for engineering, but its just not for me. One of their Chemistry Lectures has 400 people, at Kettering there are 60 tops. There are no girls at Kettering, i dont really think that is what you should be basing your decision off of (anyways, for all the big parties, we bring girls from UofM, MSU, CMU, and others). I wouldnt change the fact that i went to kettering. Its unlike any other college. Something you almost have to see and experience to understand.
