Kettering College is celebrating 50 years of excellence, innovation, and service!
The college and its owner, Kettering Medical Center, were founded by Eugene W. Kettering, son of inventor Charles F. Kettering, and his wife Virginia W. Kettering. He donated 35 acres of family property for the medical center and a future college.
In 1967, more than 100 students enrolled as the college’s first freshman class. Today we have more than 700 students and we now offer a variety of health sciences undergraduate degrees, as well as, a Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies, and an Occupational Therapy Doctorate. We are eager to celebrate this milestone as we continue our legacy of excellence, innovation, and service!
In preparation for our 50th anniversary in 2017, we are accepting digital submissions of photographs and stories from you. It’s an excellent opportunity to reconnect with classmates, faculty, and staff. Please send pictures and documents via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
