Order description on View Orders admin page?

When you first login to the admin area (version 2.2.x) the second box is “Latest Orders” and it lists out each order and then the description of what the order was on the next line. When you go to Orders > View Orders and it lists out all the orders it does not show the order description. Does anyone know how to get the order description from that first page onto the actual view orders listing page? I played around with the code a bit, but I couldn't get it to show. Any ideas?
