Kutztown University Daily Brief


#1 KU Women's Soccer Takes on Shippensburg
On Sunday, KU women's soccer won their first game since being ranked #1 in the nation beating Clarion 6-0.  Check out video highlights from that game here.  
KU takes on Shippensburg today at 3 p.m. on Keystone Field.  Come down and cheer on your Golden Bears!


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

Sunshine returns today and dew points will lower making for more tolerable breathing conditions finally, but temperatures will still be some 15 degrees above normal with highs topping out at about 80. Autumn temperatures return more tomorrow with about 8 more degrees shaved off of today's reading. 


Today's Kutztown Live at 3 p.m. on KU Radio is a full one. Lori from the NE Berks Chamber of Commerce, a recap of the Ryan Group visit to KU's campus last Thursday, a look at CASA, and much more. It's all on Kutztown Live on KU Radio at 3 p.m. We hope you join us at
