KUDOS: CENTER FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS AND ACHIEVEMENT (CASA)
KUDOS, Kutztown University’s Dedication to Outstanding Service, focuses on university administrative departments and the individuals within them, giving the campus community a better look inside many of the working areas on campus. We sat down with KU’s Center for Academic Success and Achievement (CASA) to get an inside look at the dedicated individuals who support students by helping them develop the academic skills necessary to take full advantage of the educational and personal growth opportunities the university offers. Read and Watch.

WEATHER

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

A slow-moving frontal system runs into high pressure offshore. The problem is that front may stall out over the region providing for a rainy day. Best chance of rain occurs in the afternoon. High temperature near 70. Winds south at 8-11 mph. Rainfall between 0.1-0.25 inches.
