Kyle

I love that I have the opportunity to do Co-op study. I really enjoy the hands on learning. I like to learn new things and work with others that are willing to teach me new things. The Co-op I'm working at is very educational and fun to work with others

Noelle

Kettering University, though very academically rigorous, is still a place where students have fun and are very involved in the community and on campus in various clubs and activities. Many people will dog on the location because it is in Flint, but downtown Flint is a fun place to hang out with friends with lots of cool restaurants and coffee shops.

Nolan

I love the school. It is very hard and very stressful but so worth it.

anastasia

Its a great college to get your education. They have the co-op program therefore a lot of opportunities open up. Its great academic wise but I wouldn't choose it if you wanted to have a college experience. But overall, if you want a fast start this is the college for you.

  7. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    It's small. I graduated from a high school class of 17 people, so large Universities can be very intimidating. I prefer the smaller class sizes and the ability to work one on one with peers and professors much more easily. Likewise, compus resources are much more accessable at a smaller university. Similarly, we have a co-op program that allows me and my fellow students to go to school for 11 weeks, work for 11-12 weeks, go back to school for 11 weeks, and then work again. This 3 month rotaction allows for on-the-job experience.
