5 p.m.                   AFSCME Meeting, MSU 250



(Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger)

Partly sunny conditions for the first part of the day. Temperatures and atmospheric moisture levels will be lower than what they have been over the weekend. It will still feel uncomfortable outside. Relief looks like it will arrive by midweek. Thunderstorms could flare up by afternoon due to solar heating coupled with an impulse of mid-level atmospheric energy. High temperature near 90. Winds west at 6 mph. Rainfall less than .1" but higher where storms occur.




(Historical facts have been compiled from the KU Archives and Special Collections of the Rohrbach Library; the archives of the Keystone; Kutztown Patriot, Allentown Leader and Reading Eagle; and Beacon on the Hill by Dr. Lee Graver.)

August 15, 1957:  It is announced that Kutztown State Teachers College will host a Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen School of Craftsmen later that month.  The faculty includes American architect Carl Espenscheid and a designer of Georg Jensen, Denmark.



Members, please be advised our membership meetings are held the third Monday of every month.  August 15, 2016 our monthly union meeting will be held at 5 p.m. in 250 McFarland Student Union. Refreshments will be provided. Please plan to attend and become involved in your union.

As you may be aware, the College Board redesigned the SAT in March 2016.  Please refer to College Board's concordance table for information and score comparison between the old test and the new test.  The Office of Admissions accepts both tests for admission decisions.  We will continue to use the critical reading and math from the pre-March 2016 test scores and will use the "total" score from the new format.    If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admissions at ext. 3-4060.


Thank you to all those who sent cards, prayers and comforting thoughts on the passing of my mother/mother-in-law.  It is greatly appreciated.

                              Bernadette Bamberger, instructor, Sport Management   

Clinical Services will be closed Tuesday, Aug. 16, from 1 - 2 p.m. for a staff development meeting.
