TODAY'S WEATHER

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

   

With high pressure to our north and low pressure to our south, it'll be a war in the sky over whether clouds or sun can win. Either way, not much in the way of any precipitation to worry about, so we'll just call today a Variably Cloudy to Partly Sunny day with highs in the low 70s. Northeast breezes around 8 mph.

 

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.)

 

In September 1917, as the United States joins the fight in World War I, Keystone State Normal School dispenses with the teaching and speaking of German on campus.  The school also relieved the Reverend Dr. George S. Kressley of his teaching duties.  Kressley, who had studied in Germany, was an outspoken advocate of the German culture during the war.

TECH TUESDAYS: DID YOU KNOW...?
You can create checklists in D2L? Checklists can help students track their progress and assignment completion in a course or on a particular an assignment. Each checklist contains one or more categories, into which items are organized. For example, you might have a "Week 1" checklist with categories for readings, assignments, and quizzes. Each category could have multiple items that learners need to complete in order to be successful in Week 1. The Checklist Guide will help you set up a checklist in your course! Want to see a demonstration of the Checklist tool? Check out the Checklist video.  Need more information about working with D2L? Visit our Faculty Resource Page for lots of how-to videos and documents!
