New President Named

By Pat Mroczek Chief Public Relations Officer, Kettering University

Dr. Robert K. McMahan Jr. has been named the new president of Kettering University. He will become the university’s seventh president when he succeeds Dr. Stanley R. Liberty on Aug. 1. Dr. McMahan will be engaged in some on-campus activities in July. “Bob McMahan is an innovative thinker with a broad range of academic, business, management, fund-raising and government experiences that make him an ideal selection to be Kettering’s next president,” said Gary Cowger, chair of Kettering’s Board of Trustees. “We Dr. McMahan are particularly excited about his proven abilities to engage traditional academics with science and technology-based economic development and his ability to work closely with faculty, staff and students to achieve Kettering’s goals. His contributions will help our University continue its great legacy,” he added. Dr. McMahan joins Kettering from Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, N.C., where he has been the founding dean and professor of The Kimmel School since 2008. The School is Western’s College of Engineering, Technology and Construction Management. WCU is one of the few universities in the nation to formally adopt the Boyer Model of Scholarship and is a leader in engaging faculty in economic development by nurturing teaching and applied research.

“I am deeply honored to be appointed the seventh president of Kettering University and to be entrusted with the stewardship of this very special institution,” Dr. McMahan said. “Kettering is internationally known for the excellence of its academic programs, its strong commitment to its students and to experiential learning. It is a university with a rich heritage and unlimited potential, and I look forward to working with the Board of Trustees, faculty, students, staff, alumni, corporate employers, members of the community and supporters of the university to grow this extraordinary community of learners and scholars.” Dr. McMahan is originally from Florida and has lived in North Carolina for most of his adult life. He earned bachelor’s degrees in Physics and the History of Art in 1982 from Duke University. He spent the next four years earning a Ph.D. in Physics at Dartmouth, graduating in 1986. He was a postdoctoral fellow in Astrophysics at the Harvard University - Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics from 1987–1989. From 1989 to 2010, Dr. McMahan was a research professor in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Department of Physics and Astronomy. He served the State of North Carolina from 2003–2008 as Senior Advisor to the Governor for Science and Technology and as executive director of North Carolina’s Office of Science and Technology. In that role, he advised the Governor, Secretary of Commerce, State Assembly and the boards of Science and Technology and Economic Development on issues related to science, technology and technology-based economic development. Through the years, he has served in a variety of other academic roles, including as a Visiting Fellow at both Oxford University and at the University of Durham, as well as an Adjunct Professor at the North Carolina State

8

University in Raleigh. His national and international experiences in technology strategy and advanced technologies have made him a sought-after lecturer around the world. He has been invited to speak at more than 100 national and international symposia and conferences on technology development, investment capital, research capacity, entrepreneurship and innovation-based economic development for organizations ranging from National Academies to the U.S. Congress, the National Governor’s Association and the Federal Reserve. Six foreign governments have invited him to advise them in his specialized areas of expertise. His lists of professional activities and boards on which he has served are extensive, and he has been the author or co-author of more than 40 published papers, and holds five U.S./International patents. During his career he has also been a venture capitalist, the founder and CEO of his own technology company and the executive Vice President of Engineering for the Swiss multinational technology company that acquired his firm. Dr. McMahan replaces Dr. Stanley R. Liberty, who served Kettering as president from July 2005 through June 2011. During Dr. Liberty’s tenure, Kettering became a strong collaborative partner in Flint and made substantial contributions to regional socio-economic development. Kettering expanded its academic offerings and helped launch Flint’s College Town initiative. Kettering also began offering its students co-curricular, fine arts experiences for the first time in University history.

Perspectives Study Abroad: A Perspective

By Allen Hillaker Assistant Editor

One often overlooked component of Kettering’s academic program is the inclusion of a study abroad program. The program allows you to immerse yourself in the culture and language of a foreign country without compromising your progress toward receiving your major. I took advantage of the program my junior year at Kettering and spent three months studying abroad in Ulm, Germany. The

study aboard programs are designed with a travel focus. I had engineering and languages classes four days a week, with Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off to allow for traveling. With a pass to the European rail system and a knowledge of hostels, I spent most weekends traveling to interesting locations throughout Germany, France, and the Czech Republic. The German university also gave all the international students several weeks in the middle of May off to tour the rest of Europe. In total, my time in Europe taught me three major things.

First, engineering. As a computer engineer, my progress at Kettering wasn’t slowed down by my time abroad. I learned a lot in the engineering classes I took in Ulm. The Germans teach slightly differently, which took a bit of time to get used to, but they don’t teach less. I wasn’t behind when I came back to Kettering, and I had a slightly different perspective on the topics we covered than the students that didn’t study abroad. Second, I learned a lot about culture. Ulm, unlike many of the other study abroad schools, required a German language course (all international classes were in English, so my lack of German-language proficiency was not a problem). Above and beyond teaching us the words and phrases necessary to survive in Germany, it provided a window into the culture. Additionally, we lived in the same housing as the native German students. That meant that we shared cooking and living space. They were very eager to meet and talk to Americans, and now, more than a year after my study abroad experience, I still occasionally check in with them and see how things are going. The chance to immerse myself in the foreign culture was amazing, and in many ways I grew to like it more than my “normal” one. The German culture panders more to my personal style than the American one. Finally, studying abroad gave me an opportunity to visit a lot of really cool places. While weekend trips to Paris, Prague, and major cities in Germany were fascinating, the flexibility of a multi-week break in the middle of the term gave me an excellent opportunity to travel to places that were more

than a night-long train ride away. The first of those places was Italy, where I was able to spend some time

in Venice and several days in Rome. I enjoy history, and spending a lot of time in countries with histories that span millennia, rather than a couple of centries, was humbling and really interesting. While the program was amazing, it was expensive. You pay Kettering tuition while you’re there, and I spent roughly five thousand on top of that, including housing, travel, and food. Was it worth it? For me, definitely. If I had the chance to do it again, I would take it. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget.

Greetings, Salutations, and Hello

By Evan Brest Entertainment Columnist

Welcome freshmen and returning students to a new year at Kettering! I'm excited to yadda yadda yadda, blah blah, promotional school stuff, so excited to meet you, et cetera. You're probably expecting a standard, insincere greeting in this paper you have held here between your hands, and for the last number of pages have probably read your share of welcomes, accolades, and so forth. But not here! This, is the entertainment section! We're here for fun, and fun is serious business. Whether that be making fun of something in campus, the latest Internet meme, or a great cartoon made by any one of you. I look forward to seeing what we can create. Okay, introduction over, time for some fun. Here's a handy list-ish thing of fun things to do, tips for Flint living, and some basic advice for living better. First off, go to your room and look around for a bit. There's some pretty awesome stuff in there I bet. By this winter, try to cut the amount of stuff in there by half. Really, there's only so much you need

to live here. And the fewer things you have to move in and out every three months, the happier you will be. That being said, don't make life miserable. Keep the TV, the Xbox, and the small toys if you must, but that sculpture you made in 6th grade probably doesn't need to come back. Next, and this is a serious one for Flint survival, carry with you only what you absolutely need when you venture off campus. This town isn't safe, definitely one of the most dangerous, if not the most dangerous, in the United States. I'd like to lie and say that it really isn't bad, and say things that reassure your parents, but the reality is this place takes some street smarts. Take only what you are willing to lose. Minimal cash, and maybe fewer electronic accessories than you're used to. Definitely lose the big bling'd-out watch. You're not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy. Okay, now that you're sufficiently scared of ever leaving your room and convinced you'll live a life of playing WoW and eating cafeteria food, time to bring that confidence back up. There are, remarkably enough, fun things to do here. Many of the fraternities on campus have events daily you can partake of, and most of them also help you meet new people (Who knew, right? Socializing makes you less lonely!). Locally, there is a coffee shop right up

on Grand Traverse which is a good place to get your caffeine on, and multiple places to eat on Miller Avenue. Don't feel like leaving? Try one of the clubs that meet here on campus. Like, for instance, writing for the awesome and totally cool newspaper (shameless self promotion). So there you go. A small sampling of things to try. Naturally, the best and only way to really find your way is to do it your self, and get out there. And there's no possible way I could broach all the possibilities of things for all the possible people who might be reading this particular dead tree in your hands. So yes, that's my final catch all. Just do. Do what you want, when you want. Because this is college, and when else can you have freedoms like this?

Chapter Name: Delta Eta – A Nickname: Betas President: Matthew Holland (440) 665-0597 matthewkholland@gmail.com Recruitment: Adam Frank (740) 751-8970 fran2855@kettering.edu Summary: Beta Theta Pi is dedicated to building Men of Principle for a principled life. Membership in Beta enhances each brother's collegiate experience through intellectual, social and moral growth. Beta promotes high standards of moral conduct and responsible citizenship as outlined in the Men of Principle initiative. To that end, Beta Theta Pi provides numerous merit scholarships and leadership development experiences for more than 1,600 undergraduates annually. Beta’s Men of Principle initiative is not a localized idea; rather it is a message that transcends cultures and can resonate on every campus. The message is simple: times change, principles do not. Entrepreneurial in spirit and ambitious at heart, we are recruiting men who believe in the mission of the organization. It is our goal to align our fraternity with the founding ideals set forth by our eight brothers in 1839. Beta’s recent success, coupled with 170 years of tradition, leadership, and commitment to excellence, has proven to be what college men today are looking for in a fraternity.

Delta Chi Chapter Name: Kettering–A Nickname: DX, D-Chi Summary: Delta Chi is an international social fraternity formed on October 13, 1890, at Cornell University. Originally formed as a law fraternity, and have since transitioned into a general social fraternity, we have over 100,000 initiates world-wide. When Delta Chi started the colonization at Kettering University, it was decided that having two unique chapters was the best way to establish a presence on campus. The chapters, chartered in 1998, share an ABT (Alumni Board of Trustees) and Housing Corporation but have unique officers and by-laws. Additionally, the chapters also share the chapter house. Despite this distinction, the brothers of both chapters are still brothers of Delta Chi, much as our fellow Delta Chi from any other chapter, and we still hold true to the original idealism set forth by our founders, including our motto "Leges" (Law). Our nationally preferred philanthropic organization is "The V Foundation", an organization dedicated to saving lives by helping to find a cure for cancer.

In 1962, the “Phi Kaps,” as they were then known, formed a national affiliation committee and began the task of selecting the national fraternity which they felt would be the most compatible to the Phi Kappa Epsilon’s objectives. After carefully studying over 20 national fraternities, the committee selected Pi Kappa Alpha. Since then, the chapter has had a long running history of one of the top fraternities on campus fostering students, leaders, athletes, and gentlemen.

Sigma Chi Chapter Name: Zeta Theta Nickname: Sigs Summary: In 1855, seven young men dedicated to the principles of friendship, justice and learning stood on the threshold of greatness when they declared their allegiance to these ideals and to each other. More than 150 years later, Sigma Chi is still focused on these core ideals and is internationally known as the preeminent leadership building social fraternity. The men of Sigma Chi share an experience that lasts much longer than simply four years in college, but rather they build a lifetime of friendship and devotion to striving for self-improvement. We currently do this through not only our international leadership training workshops, but also our philanthropic and community service contributions by donating time and money to Huntsman Cancer Foundation as well as the Children's Miracle Network. Furthermore, we are actively involved in school organizations and our community of Flushing, MI.

Theta Xi Chapter Name: Kappa Sigma Nickname: TX Summary: In 1954 the Michigan Gamma chapter of Kappa Sigma Kappa Fraternity was founded. By 1958 there were 40 active members. In 1962, General Motors Institute received its accreditation and large national fraternities immediately took interest. At the same time the National Kappa Sigma Kappa leadership wasfinalizing a merger with a larger national fraternity known as Theta Xi. All 19 chapters of Kappa Sigma Kappa would be absorbed into Theta Xi, bringing the collective chapter count to 67. Those Kappa Sigma Kappa chapters would keep their heritage on the chapter roll call by designating the word "Kappa" in the name. On May 6th, 1967, ground breaking ceremonies were conducted at the new residence. The alumni association was established to maintain ownership of the deed. The first event hosted at the new house was a philanthropic gathering for the Flint Big Brothers Club which resulted in all kids receiving toy pop-guns. Members and children alike swarmed the house, hiding in every nook and cranny resulting in what can only be defined as the largest collective game of "Cowboys & Indians"the city of Flint had ever seen.
