Thank You for a Successful Homecoming 2022

Thank you to the campus community for your support in making Homecoming 2022 a success. We welcomed families, alumni and the community to campus for a memorable weekend. My appreciation to our employees who helped plan and those who worked over the weekend to ensure a successful experience for all. In addition, thank you to those who participated in Friday’s Kutztown Cares Day of Service and to the 300 Greek life students and 200 student-athletes who volunteered Sunday to clean up the campus and Kutztown community.

Dr. Kenneth S. Hawkinson, University President
