Lillian is a transfer student to Kettering University who is passionate about her pursuit of an engineering degree.

"Deciding what school I wanted to graduate from, after community college, was hard at first. Kettering wasn’t originally one of my choices, I didn’t think that I was capable of going here. After talking to some amazing Kettering Staff about classes, the co-op opportunities, and the Kettering community itself, I was completely sold. I am so passionate about engineering and my goal is to make the world a better place through engineering. It was an easy decision to make, that I will appreciate for the rest of my life."
