The Daily Brief




(Click Here for the Central Calendar)





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

Warm moist air will be transported into the region thanks to the high pressure sitting to our east. General atmospheric subsidence will allow for mostly sunny conditions. There will be buoyant surface air by the afternoon. The problem is there is atmospheric stability about 2 miles up in the atmosphere, which will limit warm air ascension. Thunderstorms are possible after 2 p.m. Some storms could contain heavy rain. High temperature in the low 90s. Southwest winds at 8-13 mph.





(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.)

July 22, 1937:  It is announced that Kutztown State Teachers College will receive more than $650,000 for construction projects on campus.  Included are the construction of Schaeffer Auditorium and a $50,000 renovation of Risley Hall, installing collapsible bleachers, a new floor, locker rooms and a new entrance.  Also included in the project is the transformation of the existing chapel to a dining hall, today known as the Georgian Room.  The existing chapel stage area is to be converted to a fireplace which still exists today.  




Since many offices are hearing from students and their families this time of year, we wanted to share that fall 2016 invoices are now available online in MyKU for students to view, print and pay.  There are many ways for them to pay their tuition and other costs.  Students were emailed instructions on Monday, July 18 to their KU email address. These same instructions and various ways to pay their costs are posted on our website.  The Due Date is August 5, 2016.  Questions about invoices can be directed to the Office of Student Accounts 610-683-4133 Questions about financial aid should be directed to Financial Aid Services 610-683-4077   BOTH offices are ready and prepared to help our students and families meet the due date and start classes on August 29.



On Monday, July 25, and Tuesday, July 26, parking in lot F-1 (Stratton Administration Bldg.) will be limited.  A vendor will be using approximately 20 spaces in rows 1 & 2 as a staging area for their delivery trucks.  This is in preparation of the summer move of the Modern Language and Social Work departments to Old Main B-wing.  Your patience and cooperation is greatly appreciated.    Questions or concerns should be directed to Tammy Moyer, special project coordinator at
