ENTERPRISE CAR RENTALS
Anyone who expects to have an Enterprise rental vehicle dropped off at parking lot D2 (Keystone Hall) beginning Monday, May 16 until approximately Monday, May 23 - they will be dropped off right across at the Dixon parking lot during those dates.  Renters will still have access to the key drop box in its location in the D2 lot.  This is due to the parking lot of Keystone Hall being repaved.  You will be notified if the paving takes any longer.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jen Prevoznik in the KU Card Office at (610) 683-4826.

GOLDEN BEAR ATHLETICS

4X800M RELAY TEAM WINS PSAC TITLE 

4X800M RELAY TEAM WINS PSAC TITLE
Kutztown University's men's 4x800m relay team made history for the second straight year at the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Last year, a school-record was set. Saturday, that record was broken again in a title-winning run at Mansfield University.  The quartet of Naeb Mengisteab, Devonte KingAndrew Thompson and Jared Luckanitz turned in the best relay of their careers Saturday. They won the race by more than two seconds with a final time of 7:45.28, breaking last year's school-record that Mengisteab and Thompson were a part of in a second-place run.
