Another very warm, summer-like day with high pressure in control. Mainly sunny skies with highs in the upper 80s. Humid.


Congratulations to all involved in the successful launch of the new university website. This presidential initiative is more than two years in the making. It involved countless hours devoted by our internal web and IT teams, the assistance of our consultants at BarkleyREI, as well as the many campus contributors who were challenged to learn and use a new platform and collectively transition more than 3,000 pages of content. Together, we were able to make considerable progress with our ever-critical web presence.
Special thanks to the MARCOM and IT teams who were heavily involved with the project: Chris Angelico, Dan Carroll, Holly Fox, Julian Grabowski, Devin Hosie, Josh Leiboff, Rick Miller, Andy Mull and Kelly Smith.
     Sharon Tercha, Marketing and Communications

While the launch was successful, we realize there will be some glitches. We ask that before our official announcement to the public, we come together as a collective team to put another set of eyes on its pages. Each department and office has content contributors who are able to update their parts of the website, please direct department level changes to them. If you are unsure of who to contact, or find something not related to a specific area, please fill out this form to report it: https://app.kutztown.edu/sz_004_bugherd/. Your assistance during this final sprint to the finish will ensure we are presenting a polished KU experience. Thanks again for making this such a tremendous team effort.

Please join our office in offering our sincerest condolences to assistant director, David Ilgenfritz and his daughter Lindsey, Class of 2023, for the loss of his father, Thomas Ned Ilgenfritz.

He is preceded in death by his wife of 63 years, Anna Rose Croce Ilgenfritz. Services for Mr. Ilgenfritz were held June 25, with burial at Fort Indiantown Gap National Cemetery.
