Student Government Board President
Congratulations on joining Kutztown University and welcome to the KU family. As an incoming freshman, you are about to embark on one of life's greatest and most fulfilling journeys, a college education. This is an exciting time, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming, as you will be presented with new people and new situations. Getting involved with the University is a great way to meet new people, adapt to your new surroundings, and acquire and expand skills.
With over 160 student organizations, KU serves a wide range of student interests and offers many opportunities for involvement. Many of our students agree that getting involved has been the highlight of their KU experience and a great way to supplement their education, as you will learn skills and gain experience that cannot be taught in the classroom.
As an actively engaged member of the campus community, you will affect change in the University, thus benefitting not only yourself, but also a great institution.
The Student Government Board (SGB) welcomes your inquires and is always here to represent you.
