Kutztown University Sesquicentennial

Kutztown University will hold its Sesquicentennial Celebration, which begins in the fall of 2015 and concludes on the school's Founders' Day, September 15, 2016.

The 13-monthslong celebration will recognize the institution's 150 years of existence, which began as Keystone Normal School on September 15, 1866. Activities will include special events, recognitions and promotions.

In planning for the celebration, the university is seeking assistance from the KU family with the following items:
