The Daily Brief


Jeff Chu 

JEFF CHU, author of "Does Jesus Really Love Me? A Gay Christian's Pilgrimage in Search of God in America" will be speaking at Kutztown University on Oct. 10, at 4:30 p.m. in MSU 218. A book signing will follow at 5:30 p.m. Activist and author Dan Savage wrote in his April 11, 2013 NYTimes book review that "...Chu has written a fascinating, thoughtful and important book. He captures the fractures and conflict at a moment when the issue of what to do with L.G.B.T. people is tearing Christian denominations apart. "Does Jesus Really Love Me?" deserves to be widely read."



Due to unforeseen circumstances Kutztown University chapter of ZTA has cancelled the Campus Community Yard Sale originally scheduled for this Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013.



We erred and announced the wrong names as our winners for our Amazing Language Race and the Reverse Scavenger Hunt.

Devin Spence (2014), Briana Norton, and Waskar Paulino finished first in our Reverse Scavenger Hunt on Thursday, Sept. 26.

The team that came in first was "Los Oros" and the students were JoAnn McLaughlin (2014), Taylor Stone (2015), Kelsey Halligan (2015) and Jozel Bryant (2015).  The photo was of the correct team  


Please help us in congratulating these students, and our apologies to all for the error printed in the Daily Brief on Tuesday.
