Chris Moyer

Student Spotlight: Chris Moyer (KU Esports)

Chris Moyer '25 (also known as C- in the esports community) was already an exceptionally talented Super Smash Bros. player before enrolling at Kutztown University in the Fall of 2022. Little did he know that his competitive career would be taken to the next level as a Golden Bear. Hailing from Jonestown, Pa., Moyer has proven himself to be a very formidable competitor in just about any game he plays. The junior currently competes in both Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 3 and serves as the current president of Kutztown Esports. Read more about Moyer, as written by KU student Pearson Uelses '27.

A nearly stalled front slips far enough south today to bring in much cooler air. Highs today will be some 15 to 20 degrees cooler than yesterday, topping out at only about 65. A wave rides along that front and brings in rain showers, especially this afternoon and tonight.
