KUTZTOWN, Pa. - Public relations students from Kutztown University are compiling business releases on various local commercial locations for a newsletter to be released in May. Two Writing for Public Relations classes are working together on Town & Gown, a one-time publication that will feature profiles on restaurants and other local businesses.

Keepin' It Kutztown, a website designed to feature the best that Kutztown has to offer, began displaying each business profile starting on May 6. The profiles will be featured online during the month of May.

"I think that this newsletter will be a success, because students love to hear what other students have to say about businesses on Main Street," said AJ Simmons, a Professional Writing major at KU. "I would trust my peers' opinions on these shops and restaurants first."

Included in Town & Gown are profiles on: The Strand, Jaz & Nate's, Bagel Bar, The Frying Duchman, Spuds and Airport Diner, as well as many others.

Ashley Magliane, a fellow Professional Writing major at KU, agrees with Simmons that it would be helpful for Kutztown students to have a guide of the popular Main Street businesses on hand. "I think this newsletter would really benefit incoming Kutztown students and their families," said Magliane. "I know that if I was an incoming freshman, this guide to downtown Kutztown would be really helpful."
