Profile of Coordinator of Access Services Deb Alder
Learn a little bit about Deb:

  • What I do:  I am the coordinator of services for anyone on campus who has a learning, physical, medical or psychological disability. My job is to ensure that these individuals have access to all aspects of our campus community.  I also provide academic support to a small group of students.
  • My major in college: Special Education (undergrad) & Clinical Psychology (graduate)
  • Favorite book:  I love to read so I cannot possibly pick one favorite!  One of my favorites from childhood is Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls.  However, I am particularly drawn to mysteries and biographies.
  • Dream vacation spot:  the Swiss Alps
  • Favorite memory from freshman year:  Just hanging out in the dorm with my friends…
  • Favorite dessert:  chocolate ice cream
  • Favorite spot on campus:  Merion Green
  • BMC club/activity I’d like to join: any a cappella group (but, first, I’d have to be able to sing, which I can’t!)
  • Tip for freshman year:  Don’t be afraid to ask for help!
