Warm front moves through the region which will, in turn, have several pulses of energy to produce some uplift. Showers and even a potential thunderstorm during the day. Quite mild too. High temperature in the low 80s. Winds west at 10-15 mph. Rainfall less than 0.1 inch with heavier amounts where storms occur.
PRESIDENT HAWKINSON’S LETTER TO STUDENTS
Dear Kutztown University Students,
Congratulations! Together, we reached the end of the 2020 spring semester during some of the most challenging times in the history of higher education, and the 154-year history of Kutztown University.
It has now been nearly 10 weeks since my message went out to our university community announcing the many changes we had undertaken to move nearly all our functions online, or through some form of virtual communication, as a result of the pandemic. All our offices remained open and we continued to serve our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the broader community to the best of our ability. Be assured that people worked around the clock to continue our services and fulfill our mission of providing a college education to you, our students.
