... b'cuz I was volunteering at the university where I work - insert shameless plug for Kettering University here - as our spring open house was Saturday, offering a chance to meet faculty members and students, while touring facilities like the Crash Safety Center. The event, called Discover Kettering, is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Prospective students and their families have a chance to meet current faculty and students, tour campus facilities and attend an Academic Expo from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and a University Expo from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students meet with admissions, co-op and financial aid representatives. A panel of current Kettering students share insights about their class and job experiences. A special session is offered for transfer students.
Although Discover Kettering is an open house, registration for the program is preferred by calling (800) 955-4464, ext. 7865, or visit: http://admissions.kettering.edu/visit/. If you're interested in attending and missed this Saturday's open house, we hold another in August. Stop by and say hi - I'm usually w my buddy Lynn, "personing" the visitor station at the start of the tour of the academic building at the northwest corner of University and Chevrolet!
