Evacuation Drills - The mandatory, semi-annual emergency evacuation drills for the academic buildings will be conducted (weather permitting) during this week. These drills are conducted within the first ten days of each semester to minimize the possibility of disrupting tests, quizzes, projects or experiments. The Office of Environmental Health and Safety and Public Safety appreciate the swift, orderly participation of all building occupants whenever the evacuation alarm is activated. A good habit to develop is to close all windows and doors upon exiting your work space or classroom, and to stand clear of the exits and roadways to facilitate smoother egress and emergency responder access that may be necessary. To review the building evacuation procedures please click here and go to page 3.

Kutztown University’s Off-Campus Student Life and Commuter Services Offices will again be organizing a Community Blitz on Saturday, Sept. 8, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., to welcome back students living in the Kutztown community. We’ll meet at Trinity Church (357 W. Main Street) at 11 a.m. to form and send out teams that will distribute welcome bags to identified student housing in the borough. Afterwards, all volunteers are invited to the Community Blitz Picnic for off-campus students and residents of Kutztown Borough from 1 – 3 p.m. in the parking lot of St. Paul’s UCC Church on S. Whiteoak Street.
We need your help! First, we’re collecting promotional materials and/or giveaways to put in the welcome bags to introduce off-campus students to offices/programs on campus. Second, we need people to help Kutztown Mayor Green and President Cevallos distribute bags to off-campus students before the picnic. Please contact Susan Mangold at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to help in any way. Friends and family are welcome to join us. Feel free to share this request with others.
