Kutztown University Daily Brief


Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll

Phi Theta Kappa has named Kutztown University to its 2018 Transfer Honor Roll, which identifies the top four-year colleges and universities creating dynamic pathways to support transfer students. The honor roll includes 112 schools from across the nation. Kutztown is one of only six Pennsylvania schools and one of two members of the State System of Higher Education. Read the complete story here. 


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

Yesterday's strong warm front means we are now off to the races the next two days with the temperatures. Some early morning drizzle and low clouds should give way to some sunshine as the day progresses. It is how much sun we get that will determine how high temperatures get. If clouds are a bit stubborn, upper 60s should do it. If sun wins out faster, into the 70s we go. Almost definitely into the 70s tomorrow. Spring fever!
