    I worked at Kettering University full-time

    Pros

    Kettering University has an outstanding co-operative education model that really prepares students for a career in engineering, math, science, or business. At a time when some are questioning the value of a college education, it is easy to be inspired by the University's mission and success.

    Cons

    For such a small University it is surprising the amount of red tape it takes to accomplish anything.
