Debbie Little, Your "Campus Connection"

Posted: August 24, 2012

Welcome to all new and returning students in the College of Ag Sciences! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Ag Sciences community and family, and to serve as a resource for you as you explore the college and Penn State.

Debbie Little, Coordinator for Campus Enrollment

My name is Debbie Little, and I am the Coordinator for Campus Enrollment and Retention.  In short, it is my job to help students explore Penn State and the College of Ag Sciences to find the best academic fit.  Once students are enrolled, I help to coordinate programs and services for students in the college who attend one of 19 Penn State Commonwealth campuses as well as support programs and services offered at University Park.

As College of Ag Sciences students, you have become part of a close community of students, educators, administrators, alumni, and industry partners.  You will have opportunities to become engaged in the life of the college both in the classroom and out.  You will be able to tap into the expertise of world-renowned faculty, and alumni working in the agricultural industries.  You will have access to state-of-the-art facilities and technology.  You will interact with a diverse group of students who come from many different backgrounds and communities.  All of us in Undergraduate Education invite you to take advantage of all of the opportunities in front of you!

One of the most important responsibilities I have is to serve as your liaison between the campus and University Park.  In this role, I can help you locate resources to answer your questions, link you with academic advisers and services at your campus, connect you with academic resources in your intended major department, and more.  I also create and send to you this monthly e-newsletter, Campus Connections.  Your suggestions for topics you want to see are always welcome!  I look forward to meeting many of you during campus visits.  Faculty and staff from around the college travel with me each semester to select campuses to present information and answer your questions.  Watch this newsletter, our Commonwealth Campus Student Web site, and our Facebook site for information about these visits.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns!  I look forward to getting to know you.
