Kutztown University Daily Brief

Old Main with setting sunRETIRED PENNSYLVANIA RESIDENTS CAN ACCESS FREE TUITION AT KU
With the fall course registration deadline right around the corner, Kutztown University is reminding the local community of the KU Advant*age program, which allows retired Pennsylvania residents 62 and older the ability to access free tuition at KU for college-level courses, while only being responsible for minimal fees.  Part of KU's mission is to promote lifelong avenues of learning and discovery. The Advant*age program provides PA residents, who are fully retired, the opportunity to continue enhancing their education. Students can study the stars, explore the local German heritage, or pursue a degree in one of our colleges. Read the entire news release on our News & Media page.

WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger
Familiar pattern for Friday: warm and muggy with afternoon thunderstorms. High pressure sitting over the western Atlantic will keep moisture levels high and bring additional warmth up from the south. Atmospheric instability will be high so afternoon thunderstorms that develop will be capable of heavy rain and strong winds. High temperature in the mid-80s. Winds south at 5-8 mph. Rainfall between 0.1-0.25" with higher amounts where storms occur.
