Kutztown University Daily Brief


Kutztown University students Joseph Ritzko and Daniel Steinberg presented their research at MathFest 2017.

Joseph Ritzko and Daniel Steinberg, both Mathematics and Physics double majors, presented their research, "Tame the Flame: Utilizing Methane as a Fuel Source," at MathFest, the annual meeting of the Mathematical Association of America, in Chicago on July 29. They used a linear programming model to determine the strategy for the Kutztown Wastewater Treatment Plant to maximize savings through the collection and burning of the methane produced in the plant's digester tank. Their work was supported through PIC Math: Preparation for Industrial Careers in the Mathematical Sciences.

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

Tropical system Jose will be off coast all day throwing a lot of clouds and perhaps some showers our way, but not a whole lot more as most of the activity will be east of our area. Highs in the mid to upper 70s with gusty north breezes at times.


Funding for programs is available. Deadline for sponsorship application is October 13,

Faculty, Did you know that your campus radio station KUR can be an academic component to your classes? At least two professors regularly use KUR during the semester as support to their assignments. One uses KUR as the recording ground for an end-of-semester topical podcast which is aired on KUR. The other uses KUR for informational updates associated with the class and aired on the radio station. KUR can do the same for you and your class. For more information, contact KUR Manager/Advisor Mike Regensburger at
     Michael Regensburger, KUR
