The Daily Brief

 KU Geology Club

The Kutztown University Geology Club traveled to Puerto Rico with Dr. Kurt Friehauf in May to explore tropically-eroded ancient volcanic rocks, cave networks in the limestone cap rocks, variations in beach sediments along the northern coast, bioluminescent dinoflagellates in marine lagoons, the giant Arecibo radio telescope, and Latin-Caribbean culture.  Our students were excellent ambassadors on the trip.  They learned much more than mere geology from their travels.  Facts can be googled, but experience is woven into our souls.

THE SESQUICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION

THIS MONTH IN KU HISTORY

(Historical facts have been compiled from the KU Archives and Special Collections of the Rohrbach Library; the archives of the Keystone, Kutztown Patriot, Allentown Leader and Reading Eagle;  and Beacon on the Hill by Dr. Lee Graver.)


 
On September 1, 1899, a student athletic association was officially formed at Keystone State Normal School to promote outdoor activities such as lawn tennis, croquet, fancy marching, baseball and football.  Students were only allowed to participate in such activities during their recreation period before dinner.  Team sports could be played against other schools; however, Keystone teams were not permitted to travel.  The association would be granted their first budget, $100, in 1901. 
 


  
CELEBRATE KU CHALKBOARD PROJECT
Today from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. KU will unveil the Celebrate KU Chalkboard outside the MSU near the outdoor classroom.  Participants will be encouraged to write something positive about KU.  Please note that giveaways and refreshments are meant for students.  They will be available to faculty and staff at the end of the event should supplies last. Thank you for your understanding.

TECH TUESDAYS: DID YOU KNOW...?
The Classlist tool allows instructors to add and remove users within their courses. All official course enrollments are processed twice daily through MyKU. However, instructors have the ability to add guest instructors, course assistance, or independent study students to any of their courses at any time. The Add and Remove Course Participants Guide will walk you through the process of adding or removing users from your course. Want to see this in action? Check out the Add and Remove Course Participants video!

KUTZTOWN UNIVERSITY STUDENT-ATHLETES RAISE MONEY FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER CHARITIES
More than 250 Kutztown University student-athletes came out to Andre Reed Stadium on Saturday to compete in various events for the common goal of raising money to fight childhood cancer.  Student-athletes teamed up with Angel34, a national organization united in the fight against childhood cancer and dedicated to finding a cure, as each team represented several children fighting cancer by competing in numerous team-building and relay-style events. Teams earned points for their finishes in each event as the KU baseball team finished first followed by field hockey in second and football's offensive players in third.

For more information and to join the fight, visit http://www.angel34.org/.
Saturday marked the inaugural Childhood Cancer Olympics at KU as both Angel34 and KU hope to continue this tradition for many years to come.
