Reminder to all Faculty/Staff Student Organization Advisors - Please encourage your students to register their organization prior to the start of classes, on http://KUnited.kutztown.edu using their “MyKU” login. As part of the orientation program, our first year students will be given a demonstration of KUnited, therefore a strong representation of the 160 organizations on campus will enhance their experience.

Take a moment to check-out an interview of two KU students down at the BCTV studios. Undergrad Yvonne Fonte, shown in picture above, joined with Denise Brennan, a GA with political science, in a discussion of voting in Berks County. The program was originally broadcast last week. http://www.bctv.org/special_reports/basic_needs/disabilities-issues-updates/vmix_90276c5c-ca8c-11e0-83d1-001cc4c03286.html
TMA/iService Desk - iService Desk is an on-line work request system available to all campus customers to request Facilities services and support. Beginning on Tuesday, Aug. 23, iService Desk will no longer require a username and password for access. You may recall that Facilities instituted a password on this system last fall while we worked to make this system available to residence hall students. We are happy to report that the implementation was successful. All residence hall occupants can now use iService Desk directly to report their maintenance needs. We appreciate your patience over the last academic year as we strived to implement this service for our students.
iService Desk can be accessed at http://tmatalk.kutztown.edu/. Please report any issues with iService Desk to the Facilities Work Control Center at x3-1594.

STUDENT SHOWS TO RETURN SOON - You've waited all summer! Even though KUR did a fine job keeping you entertained throughout the dog days with plenty of great Cafe KUR and specialty shows, things REALLY kick into high gear as Fall 2011 gets kicked off! Student specialty shows begin again Monday, Sept. 12. KUR's lineup (to be released all in due time), will feature shows like never before. How about a car-themed show? How about several new rock and R&B shows? How about an even greater commitment to news and talk? Oh yes, it's all coming this fall beginning Sept. 12. Stay tuned to our website, our Facebook, our Twitter, and of course on-air for details as we draw closer!
