Tune in for the debut Fall 2015 edition of Kutztown University Radio's premier campus and community issues talk show "Kutztown Live" at 2 p.m. Note the new day this semester and also a new host, Shantae Taylor. Today, Shantae welcomes to her show KU Student Government President Joe Scoboria and KU Meteorology Professor Dr. Michael Davis.

DOCUMENTARY SCREENING
The award winning documentary, The Hunting Ground: Exposing the Rape Culture on Campus, will be screened as part of the MSU Film Series on Thursday, Sept. 10 through Sunday, Sept. 13 at 6 p.m. and Monday, Sept. 14 at 3 p.m. in MSU 183, Alumni Auditorium. The statistics are staggering. One in five women in college are sexually assaulted, yet only a fraction of these crimes are reported, and even fewer result in punishment for the perpetrators. The Hunting Ground, through insights, and first-person testimonies, follows undergraduate rape survivors pursuing both their education and justice, despite ongoing harassment and the devastating toll on them and their families. Resources specific to KU will be included in the presentation. To see a preview and more information on the film visit: http://www.thehuntinggroundfilm.com  Please join us. Classes and student organizations are welcome

UNIVERSITY WRITING CENTER - PLEASE SHARE WITH STUDENTS
The University Writing Center is a free service for students, offering advice and assistance with writing assignments from any course or subject. Tutors can assist you in improving your composing process, as well as with difficulties with development, organization, style, documentation, and mechanics. The UWC is located in Old Main 132. Its hours are Mon-Thurs 9-5, Fri 10-4, and Mon and Wed evenings 6-9. Besides our hours during the week, we will also be open select Sundays near midterms and final exams. Please call 610-683-4733, email wrcenter@kutztown.edu, or come in to Old Main 132 to set up an appointment.(https://kutztownwritingcenter.wordpress.com/),
We will open the third week of the semester on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015.
IN CLASS UWC INFORMATION SESSIONS: If you would like one of our tutors to come to your class to bring handouts and to familiarize students with the Writing Center (with a 5-10 minute talk), please contact me, Patricia Pytleski, with the desired date and time (pytleski@kutztown.edu). Or let me know if you would like to bring a class to the Writing Center for a tour or would like a tutor to help with an assignment in your classroom.
 


  
NOON CO-ED BASKETBALL
Faculty and staff interested in participating in co-ed basketball games at noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays should contact Dan Spiegel (spiegel@kutztown.edu). When we have enough people, which is almost always the case, we play full court. Great skill is not a requirement; some experience is probably a good idea, as the games are somewhat competitive. Be assured, however, that there are no recruiters (for those of you with college eligibility remaining), and absolutely no cameras.
