College is always what you make of it. When I attended Kettering, it was small and everyone knew everyone else. It was very easy to talk directly with professors and other students. I liked knowing everyone.

The core classes were very solid. This is not a party school, so expect to spend many nights studying away. However, most of the non-core classes (like pyschology, literature and history) were designed for Engineers, not Liberal Arts majors. So, don't go to this school if you want to read about the history of psychology all day. However, if you want to build a compiler, develop a real-time operating system and design a microprocessor from the NAND gate up all before you graduate, then this is the school for you! The computer science classes have all of the above projects and more.

As far as social life, it was always very easy to find parties on weekends and many hosts were cool enough to invite practically the entire campus. Sometimes even campus facilty would attend. Most of the larger parties were sponsored by fraternities and were very diligent about designated drivers. There was always something to do on weekends. I knew a few people from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor that had less fun than I did during school.

The school does not have a lot of women. I personally didn't go to school to find a wife, but to get a degree, so it wasn't a big deal. I think it really helped me focus on my school work and really get the most for my college dollar.

Finally, the school has a required co-op program. I came out of college with five years of professional experience on my resume. It was very easy to find a high-paying job and get into grad school. The co-op program provides the student with an opportunity to try life in the professional working world before spending several years and dollars in college.
