As soon as the early education major made the commitment to Kutztown, she wasted no time in becoming involved in extracurricular campus life. She immediately joined sorority Phi Sigma Sigma, which has been one of her fondest engagements at KU. Read more

        "The first thing I saw at Kutztown was opportunity."

        When Derrick Taylor first arrived at Kutztown University, he observed an array of opportunity and experiences laid out before him. He shed himself of reserve and eagerly made his way through open doors. A passionate political science major, Taylor has sharpened his leadership skills, not only through his major, but through involving himself in campus organizations, such as ACE and BSU. He also has been a fundamental part in the development of a Kutztown chapter of the NAACP.  

        "The first thing I saw at Kutztown was opportunity," recalls Taylor. "The staff and faculty won't let you fail. They'll push you to your limit and then increase your limit and push you further. You are somebody. It's a loving environment here. You can come here and draw your own picture. That's why I chose KU." Read more
