1866 Minute Giving Challenge: Oct. 18-19
Imagine supporting team travel to an out-of-state tournament. Or wouldn't it be amazing if an entire group of students could attend a professional conference – the first of their career? What if you could ensure that over 25 students in financial crisis had the resources they need to cover food and housing expenses? For 1,866 minutes, the KU community unites as one to support all. Because Together, We're Golden. In addition, Kutztown University Radio (KUR) will air a live, overnight broadcast for the full duration of the challenge – 1,866 minutes – including more than six students and staff. Listen via the TuneIn app or by tuning into the 1670 AM frequency on campus. For 1,866 minutes each year, we solely focus on gaining support for KU organizations, projects, programs and athletics through an online giving platform, by phone, by check/cash donations received in-person and by mail. Participate at https://www.kuf.org/1866.

Sherrod to Host Chambliss Faculty Lecture
Kutztown University’s Dr. Laura Sherrod, professor of physical sciences, will present her lecture entitled, “When Science and History Converge: The Search for a Lost Revolutionary War Mass Burial” during the university’s annual Chambliss Faculty Lecture 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, 183 McFarland Student Union. The lecture will also be available on Zoom.
Today will almost feel like an early start to winter, with temperatures well below average for this time of year at only around 51. Much of the day will be spent in the 40s under cold high pressure. At least it’ll look nice with fair skies.
Correction of Graduate Student Enrollment
While our undergraduate numbers that were shared with the university community were correct (7.3% increase in new freshman), we erred in reporting our new graduate student headcount. We had inadvertently included new non-degree-seeking graduate and new summer 2022 graduate students in the fall 2022 new graduate student headcount comparison. The corrected headcount for fall 2022 new degree-seeking graduates is 234. Using the same comparison from fall 2021, we enrolled 207 new degree-seeking graduate students for a 13% increase. We regret the error but are delighted with our higher numbers.
On behalf of our Residence Life, Housing and Dining Services, we would like to cordially invite you to our annual HARLOween which will be held 1-5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30, on the DMZ at Kutztown University. Campus and community members are invited to bring their children to experience a day full of fun activities, inflatables and trick-or-treat opportunities. We'll have snacks and drinks available along with the opportunity for the children to win some prizes throughout the day. Adult supervision is required for all children under the age of 18. In case of rain, this free event will be moved to 218 McFarland Student Union.
