Kettering Behind The Scenes: Rec Services Preston Buszka Assistant Editor Note from the writer: Kettering BTS goes behind the scenes (hence the name) of various departments and services at Kettering University to see how they function, what they do and more. If you have any comments, questions, or would like to suggest a department, please feel free to email us at aTechnician@kettering.edu.

Kettering University has a unique Recreation Services Department compared to other colleges: ours is entirely free to our students, faculty, and staff. At most other colleges it costs money to visit their recreation center or participate in programs or activities, so we have a unique situation. I conducted two interviews on a Tuesday afternoon with members of the Recreational Staff. I started with Nathan Deane, Facility Manager of the Connie & Jim John Recre-

There are various lockers available all around the facility, most of which require one to bring their lock; however, one can rent a locker in the locker room for $15.00 a term. Restrooms are located through the facility. The locker room also features showers and a steam room. Near the locker rooms,

Thoughts on a Copy: A GoPrint Review Katie Gillies Submission Writer Disclaimer: This article has been modified from its original submission to conform to the standards of The Technician. I created a survey to see how students felt about the GoPrint system. Out of the 38 polls I received back, 92.1% disliked the GoPrint system. Many students believe that GoPrint is less efficient and a hassle to use. They feel this way because the system requires them to log in to release their documents. One respondent said, “It is really confusing. It seems to [require] unnecessary steps to accomplish the same goal as the previous term. I do not feel like the GoPrint system is more efficient.” It generally seems to take longer for the entire printing process as a whole because of the steps that have been added into the process. The new printing system has brought new challenges to the student body that use the printers available on campus. One of the most common comments made was about how the extra step makes the process more difficult. Another common response was that the old system was more straightforward and more user-friendly. Some of the struggles that students have faced with the new printing system are: - GoPrint not putting a balance on the students account to print in color - Students not being able to print straight from emails received from professors - Not being able to enter the print-

These students made positive comments such as, “It makes paying for colored prints convenient and easy.” Some students like how the interface looks and how they cannot accidentally print someone else’s stuff. The new printing system does offer some benefits that go unseen such as a convenient payment system and being able to print from anywhere on campus. After being asked about which system the students preferred, 86.8% said that they would prefer the old printing system or that the new system gets modified. In the students’ opinion, Kettering should switch back to the old system because it is easier for the students to use. Regarding time

management, the old system allowed students to print quickly. The old system gave the students flexibility when it came to their own time and having to manage their schedules. One respondent said, “I have heard many say, ‘If you need to print anything from the library, give yourself at least a half hour.’ That led me to not wanting to use them.” Another benefit of the old system was that you had total control of the printer when it was your

This year Beta Theta Pi held its 179th General Convention in Norfolk, Virginia. Being the broke college student I am, I carpooled there with two of my brothers and spent a grand total of 26 hours on the road between August 2-5th. Needless to say by the time we arrived in Norfolk I was already running on double shots of espresso. My high coffee intake continued throughout the entire weekend. There is a particular reason I decided to write a reflection for this convention and not Beta’s 178th (I climbed a mountain with Adam L. in Utah at that one), that reason being that a proposal for substance free housing was on the ballot for the 179th. This proposal had long been in the works but recent tragedies (Penn State being a prime example) had accelerated it greatly. This is where the real fun starts. If there is one thing that seems to get fraternity men upset it is the removal of alcohol from the chapter house. Substance free covers far more than just alcohol but it was only alcohol that I heard complaints about. Both sides were hotly contested as while the majority of Beta chapters were registered as “dry” in actuality they were not. Our Chapter President (our delegate for the 179th) received

If they don’t, one can put in a suggestion. Upstairs in the Group Exercise Room is an industrial-strength air-conditioner, in the event you get too hot. Also, they have a heater, if the A/C did its job too well. The Cardio Room has recently updated flat screen TVs, and the whole facility has a full cable suite. The Rec features a six-lane lap pool in addition to a hot tub. The main concourse has a three-lane one-eighth mile track. Additionally, there are three racquetball courts, a squash court, two tennis courts, four basketball courts, and also Badminton courts. Near the courts on the bottom level is the large Weight Room, with multiple pieces of equipment to choose from. Patrons can borrow towels for use in the facility. A reminder to please return the towels before you leave. Also, only use the emergency exits in the event of an emergency. After speaking with Nate, I after that interviewed

turn to release your documents. Most of the time one could select their materials and print without the hassle of having to sort through papers in an attempt to find theirs. A student from the survey said, “When using the old printing system, it was much easier to print and grab only your documents.” The old system allowed students to have control of the printing atmosphere so that there was rarely a substantial jumbled up mess at the printer. The GoPrint system comes with many benefits, but the hassle outweighs them. The old printing system should be reimplemented to help the students do their work more efficiently.

Now, we mentioned multiple times Intramural Sports, but have yet to explain what it is really. Mike describes it well, saying that it is an opportunity for Kettering students, faculty, and staff to create teams and play in leagues against other Kettering students, faculty, and staff for multiple weeks at a time, or even partake in one-day tournaments. Did you know it’s free? It’s true; it's entirely free. Mike strongly suggests that all take advantage of it! There are different leagues for every skill level (depending on the sport). Usually, there is A-Tourney -- Very athletic and competitive league, R-Tourney -- Relaxed and beginner league, Women's League -Woman Participants, and a Thompson Hall League -- Only residents of Thompson Hall may partake. The Rec uses imleauges.com for our Intramural Sports Program here at Kettering and is required to participate (information for imleauges.com can be found in The Rec). In a concluding statement, Mike wanted to give a special shout-out to Jennifer Briggs for achieving Employee of the Month for July! Congratulations! Disclaimer: Assuming you don’t break anything, the use and participation in Kettering University's Recreation Services, in its entirety, is entirely free to students, faculty, and staff. However, one of the persons above can bring a guest to the Recreation Center for only $6 for a day pass.

Preston’s Perspective Preston Buszka Assistant Editor Note from the writer: Welcome back, Preston Buszka here. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to email us at aTechnician@kettering.edu. So close, yet so far. As the academic term comes to an end with the work term approaching, I merely have a few things left I would like to talk about. Minor Problems… Oh dear, it appears we’ve encountered a minor problem: scheduling the coming term and possibly adding minors. At Kettering University, we have thirteen degree programs (with various concentrations) and twenty-two minors (to date). Additionally, a Pre-Med course of study is offered. That is many things to choose from! Fortunately, the catalog goes over what precisely each major or minor will require in terms of class/credit. The excellent staff in the Academic Success Center would love to help you be successful, and one can schedule an appointment or walk-in. One could also speak with their departmental advisor to see what is best as well. Both can help you decide what classes or electives you should take to satisfy both your major or even a minor (or two). Don’t be afraid to ask. On a separate but similar note, be aware that one does not just take the classes for a minor and suddenly have a minor, one must inform the Office of The Registrar so that your transcript can be updated. Visit http://catalog.kettering.edu/undergrad/academicprograms/ for more details about course requirements, or see the Academic Success Center (AB 3-322, academicsuccess@ kettering.edu, 810-762-9775) or the Office of The Registrar (AB 3309, registrar@kettering.edu, 810-762-7476) The End Is Near! As I mentioned, the academic term soon ends. I wish everyone good luck on their finals, and I hope everyone has had a good semester. I know everyone is tired, as it has been a long eleven weeks, but we have to finish strong and keep on pushing. Just think, in no time, we’ll all be off to work term (apologies to C-Section, hang in there…). I understand that the end of the term can be stressful, so I have some solutions to alleviate some of your worries hopefully. In regards to exams, as long as you put the effort in, study, and work hard, that’s all that matters. If you don’t do well, after working hard like that, know that there was nothing more you could do; you did everything possible to set yourself up for success. If you don’t put any effort in and flunk, then that is entirely your problem. If you live in the residence hall, don’t panic about moving out. I know there are 7:30 AM exams that Saturday morning, but the excellent staff of Thompson Hall is reasonable, as long as you cooperate and are respectful. Safe travels to all, and to all, goodnight. Apologies to My Dad But wait, there's more! In the second edition of “Preston Perspective,” I said “Hi Mom!” in the section on what one can do in their free time. I wanted to formally apologize to my father for not including him at the time, by saying “Hi Dad!” now. Also, a Continued on Page 5

Greek Societies

Getting To Know The Non-Social Greeks Preston Buszka Assistant Editor Kettering University has thirteen Non-Social Greek Organizations on campus. The goal of this article is to provide some background information on all of them so that students and members of the Kettering community can find out a little more about them. If you are not already aware, The Technician featured all of the Social Greek Organizations in their article in Volume 130, Issue 1. Feel free to check them out as well; however, this article is exclusively for the Greek Professional Organizations, Service Organizations, and Honor Societies. Non-Social Greek organizations are very different from their social counterpart, as academics and professional standing play a significant part in one’s eligibility to join. Disclaimer: The Technician is Greek Neutral, and is not sponsored or endorsed by any Greek Organization, Council, or Person, nor does The Technician sponsor or endorse any specific Organization, Council, or Person. We hope that this information will be of value to all of our readers.

We are currently in the process of chartering at Kettering, meaning that we are setting the foundation for the future of Kettering's one chapter between both A and B section. For people interested in joining a new community that is growing immensely and wants to become a leader and founding member, then please look into APO and see what you can do to help us become an official chapter of this fantastic International Service Organization.

Interview with the Chaplain Preston Buszka Assistant Editor I had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Lonnie Brown over the phone one August afternoon about his job as the Chaplain of Kettering University. We talked about the weekly event he hosts at 7:00 PM in the Reflection Room of the Campus Center (5th Floor), called “Let’s Talk.” During these meetings, he gives students the opportunity to come and hear some principles of a spiritual nature that relates to their academics, their vocation, and their circumstances. One does not have to have a problem to come; one can just share their own heart and also receive these principles. According to Dr. Image Courtesy of Brown, “principles insidethekingdom.com are permanent rules of instruction, that require the commitment to follow, and are indispensable to one’s ever-changing life. They are not theoretical or fluid; they stay constant with time, and are required for success.” Dr. Brown went on to say, “Life is full of principles, and life is choice driven. Given that you are making the right choice and supporting them with the right principle, one should see a full and productive life.” Dr. Brown mentioned that in the event of the death of a member of the faculty or student body, he is here to support their families and the community spiritually in the best way he can, within the scope of the university, such as spiritual support in prayer. I asked Dr. Brown how long he has been the Chaplain and he said, “This is the fourth year, I believe.

The chaplain is on campus during “Let’s Talk,” but is otherwise available as needed; for example, in the event of tragedy or assisting with grief. He can be reached at chaplain@kettering.edu.

tial Education). They are on campus as conduits to connect members in the community in need of the Chaplain and are here to help. I asked him for a closing remark about his position, and I was pleasantly surprised with his response. “It is an honor to be able to serve the student body, particularly those with spiritual foundation and basis, to have them know that [The Office of The Chaplain] is available to support them, is quite an honor to be filled by me,” he said. “I consider myself extremely privileged. [We have] a great group of students, faculty, and staff, and of course the president, with special thanks to Betsy Homsher as well, being the brainchild for this and creating the opportunity for that. I am just honored to be able to serve.” For more information on The Office of the Chaplain, visit https://my.kettering.edu/page/office-chaplain or contact them by chaplain@kettering.edu

Convention Reflections Continued from Front Page multiple papers trying to persuade him to vote for or against. Some of these essays were rather amusing. There was a particular author that claimed to be in a high stress engineering program (I scoff at this) and rambled on about how data can be skewed, then proceeded to skew the data himself. Genus, right? Anyways there was a lot of discourse at the 179th about this proposal. Thankfully the Kettering Delta Eta-A chapter of Beta Theta Pi was already substance free so the outcome of the vote did not particularly affect us. That said I do have a thought on this subject. My most prominent thought is that you can be a dry chapter and still have a drinking culture. The Delta Eta-A here at Kettering is a prime example of this. Our house is dry. Our events are dry. We do not allow underage drinking even outside of official events. We always have a safe man (or three) when we go to a bar. Once, after a night out with some of my brothers I had to be helped up the stairs of my apartment (coordination was difficult that evening). So our DDs do earn their keep at times. The specific point I’m trying to make is that you can have a drinking culture and still have a substance free chapter house. Yet most of the Betas I spoke to at the 179th that were against the substance free proposal couldn’t accept this thought of mine. Perhaps I’m wrong. Or maybe Kettering is just an outlier. Either way the proposal passed so look forward to all Beta houses being substance free within the next two years. An additional note I would like to make: While I personally do not approve of underage drinking or the “misuse” of alcohol I am not a higher being, the law, or your parents. If you have a wet chapter house that is fine with me. There is a reason choices exist and a reason I joined one of the three dry houses on campus. Thank you for entertaining yourself with my rambling reflection on Beta’s 179th.

Alumni Interview Preston Buszka Assistant Editor I contacted an Alumna of Kettering University (GMI Engineering and Management Institute, at the time) recently to ask her about her time here. I interviewed Beth Hatsios, formerly Beth Chapman, of the 1995 graduating class. She graduated from BSection with BA in Mechanical Engineering with a Manufacturing specialty. One of my questions was if she had any tips or suggestions for first-year students and new students. She responded with some tips: - Make sure you don't skip class. It's easy to do when you don't have Mom or Dad forcing you out of bed in the morning (or after a nap). - Don't pull an all-nighter to study for a big test. Sleep deprivation doesn't help brain function. Getting enough sleep is difficult in college but still is important. - Take good notes. I used to rewrite my notes when I was studying, and that helped me to retain what I had learned.

Beth Chapman Circa 1995 Photo Submitted - Exercise - it is good stress relief. They built the fitness center in time for me to graduate in it, but I never got to use it. Take advantage of that facility! - Get involved. There are so many ways to get involved, whether it is joining a club, fraternity, or working part-time. - Use a planner, paper or digital - whatever works for you. Being good at time management is vital in the real world, and having reminders, a calendar, to do list, etc. is so important, especially with the rigorous schedule maintained at Kettering. - Be social and make friends - studying is much more fun in groups. I went on to ask what she remembered the most from her time at GMI, in which she responded: “The thing I remember most about Kettering was always being busy. In addition to going to classes, labs, and studying, I was involved in student sections of SAE, SME, and SWE. I was also in the ΑΓΔ (Alpha Gamma Delta) Fraternity (which was only B section). I remember having many great Profs, includ-

ing Reggie Bell, and Doc K.” I inquired to her about the thesis requirement here at Kettering, and she said: “[…]start thinking about it as soon as your first work term. Talk to a graduate at your work and ask for pointers. Pick a topic that interests you and has a small enough scale that it can be completed during your senior year. There is always something at your Co-op job that will make for a great thesis project. Mine was optimizing metal inserts in thermoplastic air induction applications lots of torque to failure testing.” I also asked Beth what some of her favorite memories of college here was, and she said: “Some of my best memories of Kettering were study sessions with friends, sunbathing and studying between classes on

Beth Hastsios Circa 2018 Photo Submitted the "beach" in Spring, Greek life and dance parties at the Fraternity houses, and getting a break from school every 6 months. I also remember when the Capitol Theatre in downtown Flint was a nightclub owned by 20-year-olds with no business sense - I think it only made it a year before it closed, but was fun while it was open! I posted an inquiry as to our excellent faculty here, and she said that word of mouth is always best in deciding a class. I concluded our interview with a simple question: “How did you make the most out of your education?” and she had an excellent answer: “After graduation, I was offered a job at my Co-op, Ford Motor Company. During my Co-op, I worked mainly at Rawsonville Plant and spent most of my time in manufacturing engineering, which I loved. I was able to troubleshoot build and equipment issues, work with suppliers to design equipment to build components and do product design of air induction components. Shortly after I graduated, I moved to the Engineering offices in Dearborn and spent most of my time on product design and program management in Suspension. I worked there until about 11 years ago when I left to raise my family. Kettering (GMI) prepared me for my career at Ford. Recently I have become the Treasurer and Administrator for a local travel soccer club. The time management, organizational, and accounting skills that I learned in undergrad, grad school, and in my career at Ford are still being applied at my current job.”
