KUDOS: DINING SERVICES
KUDOS, Kutztown University’s Dedication to Outstanding Service, focuses on university administrative offices and the individuals within them, giving the campus community a look inside the working areas on campus.

WEATHER

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

A decent Election Day in the making today, so get out and do your civic duty. Could be some extra clouds around as a weak front approaches, but we should see some sun, too. We’ll call it partly cloudy with highs in the upper 50s. Light south winds.
