Graduate Research Assistant

Ricks Hall - Graduate Suite


Libby Blosser is from Whiteville, NC and a first-year grad student pursuing a degree in Agriculture and Extension Education. She currently works under Dr. Joseph Donaldson as a graduate research assistant. She serve as a mentor for the Career Pathways in Agriculture for Community College Students (PACCS) Program and run the Career PACCS website ( Additional work responsibilities include traveling to community colleges to recruit transfer students, emailing prospective students, and providing community college students with resources and connecting them to advisors, students, and professors within the AHS dept.
Libby loves the outdoors- anything from being on the water, going to the beach, skiing, hunting, gardening, sports, and running.  She also loves a good book, cooking, and enjoys playing the piano and banjo in my free time. Before grad school, Libby obtained a BS degree in Extension Education with minors in Horticulture Science, Crop Science, and Ag Business Management. She has related work experience as a greenhouse assistant and communications assistant for the Agriculture and Human Sciences Dept. Libby comes from a strong background in agriculture and would like to pursue a full-time career in extension after she completes her Master’s degree, and hopefully open her own greenhouse/plant nursery down the road!
