This place is such a dump. Nothing is nice, nothing is new, people REGULARLY get robbed outside of the buildings, and campus safety's wothless little mall cop squad does nothing to prevent it, but god forbid you ever have to ask them a question, because all of them except this one black guy are so demeaning towards anyone who trys to speak to them that its almost less painful to just go out and get robbed. This paragraph was first because if its the only thing you read, at least it counts.

The entire place reeks of asbestos and death, and occasionally they'll attempt some kind of asbestos removal ritual to try to coax it out of the walls but these always end in the asbestos getting all riled up and filling the hall (which they never block off all the way) with this foul smelling asbestos haze. I predict that every Kettering student will have lung cancer by the time there 30.

Then there's the classes, there is (for my major, CS) only 1 good professor. The rest are either complete douches in every way or dont speak/read/write/understand english at all. There are no fun classes ever. If a class sounds fun, be prepared to be dissappointed because Kettering profs are maseters at killing anything and everything fun about everything ever. Also you dont ever really learn much, profs all seem pretty smart but most of them are terrible at teaching. It never feels like you're learning anything, and then when the time comes to really put that knowlege to the test, guess what, you didn't! I dont understand how they can justify how much we pay to go here.

Kettering is located in scenic Flint Mi, Murder capital of the world (not an official statistic.) Trust me, nothing makes you feel more uneasy than living in a place where you honestly fear being MURDERED! Last term my car got broken into. They broke out my back window and the only thing they stole was about a dollar in change out of my ash tray. Thats how bad the surrouding area is. One time i was waking down the street trying to find a radio shack and i was offered xanax by a drug dealer with no arms, and this is a true story.

The faculty is underpayed, the management is overpayed, the building is falling apart, the city is dead, PLEASE if you value your money and your life stay away from Kettering. Nothing here is worth the money or the pain. A co-op job prepares you for the real world, this is true. But if you want this just get a summer internship, its better for your health.

responseOn breaking in to steal a dollar in change:

They were fucking with you, it's a game to them. You are better off driving a rusted-out radioless shitmobile if you go to a college in a town with a crime problem.

The way you expressed your thoughts really connected well. Especially this sentence" nothing is nice, nothing is newcomer people regularly get robbed outside of the buildings, and campus safety shoes less little mall cop squad does nothing to prevent it " I found this article in ukessay reviews services, keep posting such articles.
