WEATHER

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

Weak low pressure brings more clouds than sunshine today with a touch of light wet snow or light rain. This will likely be a very minor event. Roads to our north (e.g., Schuylkill, Carbon and Monroe Counties) may experience slippery conditions. Sunshine may increase later in the day. Highs in the upper-30s.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

MILITARY AND VETERAN ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT
Jonathan Tompkins '15, B.S. Business Administration/Management, was a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps. Forty days before he was scheduled to come home from Iraq, Jonathan went to check out a roadside bomb while on patrol near Fallujah. The device was a dud, and Jonathan returned to his Humvee. As he reached to open the door, a sharp pain stung the pit of his right arm. It felt like an electric shock, but Tompkins would quickly realize the pain was inflicted by a sniper's bullet. It was April 5, 2007, and in an instant Tompkins had become a wounded warrior. Three years and forty surgeries later, the 27-year-old began studying at Kutztown University. Learn more about Jonathan at www.kutztown.edu/veterans.
