Welcome Back to School! #WeAreBack

With the weather changing, students back on campus, and the smell of fresh textbooks in the air, it only means one thing: the school year has officially started. Over 16,000 new students were welcomed into the Nittany Lion Pride and we know how crazy your first year as a college student can be! While the freshmen are adjusting to their new year, the seniors are wrapping up their Penn State experience by going out with a bang! Some of those seniors include the 2016 class of 13 stellar Agriculture Extension and Education majors that will be working hard throughout the fall semester for their student teaching. That being said, we want to make sure that we capture all of the College of Agriculture students and inform them of some events coming up!
