    Major: Elementary Education, Class of 2015
    KU is this future educator's home away from home

    One trip to Kutztown University was all it took for Brooke Benson. The rest is history.

    Upon her visit to Kutztown, Benson fell in love with the "home-away-from-home feel" and felt drawn to the school with its great reputation in educating future educators.  

    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

          "If you are graduating from Kutztown in Electronic Media, you are prepared."

          With every class taken, internship completed, club participated in, conference attended and connection made, Electronic Media major Steve Maugeri is making huge strides in the right direction toward his dream of becoming a sports broadcaster. KU's abundance of opportunity both within and outside of the Electronic Media program has been invaluable to the senior. "That's the beauty of this major as a whole, you can get involved. The classes teach you requisite skills in Electronic Media. The clubs teach you the nature of the business." Read more

          Major: Political Science, Class of 2016
          "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
