Students have an Edge at Penn State DuBois

February 16, 2009

A new program at Penn State DuBois is in place to help students with almost all of their needs, whether they are making the transition into college life, or even if they are experienced students.

The Edge can provide an answer for almost any question students have, while helping them stay focused and maintain a positive college experience. Intervention Strategist Cindy Liddington coordinates the Edge. She says she can offer students help with scheduling classes, using online systems, finding tutors, and even offer assistance to students looking for resources in the community. Liddington says one of the most valuable services she provides is help with the organization of school work and assignments.

"It really can help them put an edge on their career," says Liddington. "It’s a way a student can make the most of their college experience."

Liddington explains that students are often unaware of the many resources the campus and community have to offer, and sometimes don’t know who to ask. Liddington is now another valued resource on campus for students to get information to meet multiple needs from academics to athletics. She says that if she does not have the information, she will know who does.

"I can even refer students to off-campus organizations," she says. "Agencies that can assist you in getting food or heating fuel are even on my list."

Liddington is available from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Friday in room 110 of the DEF Building or by appointment, for those students who are unable to see her during the day. She can be reached at (814) 375-4792 or
