Overall

From The School


The following materials are required for first-year applicants:
  • An online application using:
    • Common Application (required for early decision), or
    • Lycoming online application
  • Official high school transcripts
  • SAT or ACT scores (or, if you’re in the top half of your graduating class, the Optional Choice form and two graded writing samples)
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Personal essay — Tell us why you want to join the Lycoming family

The College application process can be stressful, especially if students know that their standardized test scores do not reflect their fullest potential.

While many of Lycoming’s incoming students place in the top two-fifths of their graduating class and have above average SAT or ACT scores, the College is happy to evaluate the rigor of a student’s high school classes, GPA, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities and supplemental information instead. It’s an initiative called the Test Optional Choice, and it could help take an application from good to great.

HERE’S WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT LYCOMING’S TEST OPTIONAL CHOICE:
  • You must fall in the top half of your graduating class to be eligible.
  • Two graded writing samples and the test optional form are required in place of your test scores. Each sample should be at least two pages long and analytical in nature.
  • You will still be considered for all types of financial aid and get full consideration for academic scholarships, talent scholarships and grants.

Academic Programs


Academic Programs include the following: Accounting, Archaeology, Art, Astronomy & Physics, Biology, Business Administration, Chemistry, Communication, Criminal Justice & Criminology, Economics, Education, English, History, Interdisciplinary Studies, Mathematical Sciences, Modern Language Studies, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Pre-Professional (Law, Medicine and Theology), Psychology, Religion, Sociology-Anthropology and Theatre.

In building an education for the 21st century, Lycoming has made investments in new academic programs that explore some of the most important questions of the new century, and our faculty have recently approved new majors in neuroscience and Latin American archaeology. And Lycoming has invested in two distinctive initiatives designed to improve life outside the classroom — co-curricular programs that develop leadership: Outdoor Leadership & Education and Intellectual Affinity Learning Communities. The intellectual affinity housing program is now in its second year and involves more than 70 students and six faculty members.

Beyond the recent additions of neuroscience and Latin American archaeology, investment in the coveted degree of the future also includes developing programs in energy, environmental studies and entrepreneurship. These three areas have been identified as areas of study that will be important in the future, as well as areas that Lycoming College is well-positioned to establish as points of distinction, benefiting the reputation of the College as a whole, as well as alumni ranks.

Situated at the doorstep of the Marcellus Shale formation, and with most forms of energy supply and production — gas, wind, coal, nuclear, solar — nearby, the College is at the epicenter of a dramatic transformation of local, national and global energy systems. Through research into energy systems and their social, economic and environmental impacts, the Center for Energy and the Future allows the College to organize intellectual capacity and pursue national recognition around an issue that matters. The center will seek to foster informed and civil public dialogue about the energy choices facing the nation and the world through a lecture series, conferences and internships, as well as through academic minors in energy science and energy studies.

In the field of environmental studies, Lycoming already has a long-standing center of excellence in the Clean Water Institute. The College also has an environmental studies minor, with a major course of study under consideration, while plans for a new field station on the 64-mile Loyalsock Creek will expand the work of the Clean Water Institute and enhance its profile.

Lastly, while not a major at the College, the new Sloter Endowed Chair in Entrepreneurship is designed to promote the learning and understanding of entrepreneurship for not only business-related majors, but for students across all majors at the College who want to learn the basics of entrepreneurship to pair with their respective areas of expertise.

Students Say

Pennsylvania's Lycoming College is truly a school that allows all students to "realize [their] potential." This can certainly be attributed to the fact that the "faculty and administration work hard to customize the...college experience to each student's needs." Additionally, the "small" campus at this liberal arts college fosters a "close-knit community." And there's a "wide array of interdisciplinary classes and programs that help develop well-rounded students." Students appreciate that Lycoming provides "great opportunities to do handson research with your professors" as well as excellent "undergraduate internship...[and] study abroad opportunities." What's more, "small class sizes" virtually guarantee that all of your professors will "know you by name." Speaking of professors, Lycoming students typically find their instructors to be "engaging" and "really passionate about what they are teaching." A student explains, "Classes are not just boring lectures, but the professors bring in their own personal experiences and stories to keep class interesting." They're also "very understanding, "always prepared," and "actively encourage student participation." Accessibility is another important hallmark of the faculty, "willing to help [out] all students" who are struggling even by "staying late into the evening for office hours and tutoring [assistance]." Best of all, professors frequently "become close mentors in and outside of the classroom."

From The School


The very best national liberal arts colleges enroll students drawn from across the globe and reflect the full mosaic of the American population, and Lycoming is no exception. To become more like the very best colleges, Lycoming has increasingly enrolled a more global and ethnically diverse student body. For the first time, in 2016, more than 50% of the enrolling class was from outside of Pennsylvania. To that end, the current student body is comprised of students from 29 states and territories and 23 countries from across the globe.

Lycoming College uses its small size to its advantage with a close-knit campus community. With over 80 clubs total, 60 of them chartered clubs and organizations and 25 intercollegiate and intramural sports teams, there is something for everyone. The many student organizations at Lycoming College provide numerous opportunities for involvement and leadership. Students are expected to become contributors to campus life by actively involving themselves in the many student government, service and social organizations, academic clubs and club sports.

Students Say

Thanks to Lycoming's "small and intimate campus," the student body often feels "like a family." Indeed, undergrads here describe their peers as "friendly," "nice," and "open." Some students caution that "there are different cliques like the athletic teams and the different fraternities," but, for the most part, everyone "come[s] together to help one another in [their] time of need." Fortunately, "Nobody judges you because you do your own thing or dress differently [than] others." And while a large percentage of students "are white and from the Northeast," undergrads quickly mention that there's been a huge push at Lycoming to increase diversity in recent years. An excited student explains, "We boast high numbers of international students, from at least ten countries. We also have partner schools in urban areas like Houston and Philadelphia, bringing in students who would normally struggle to secure a place in a liberal arts college. Our international program is expanding, and we have students from various places like Vietnam, Argentina, and Rwanda." Of course, many students find common ground given the fact that most are "hard workers and very involved on campus." As one undergrad concludes, "Lycoming College students are passionate about their education and are committed to bettering themselves and preparing for graduation."

Overview

From The School


Location


Lycoming College, nestled in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Susquehanna River Valley, boasts year-round outdoor excitement. Set in an urban/rural mix, Lycoming is near downtown Williamsport, making it an easy foot or bike-commute to a thriving business and shopping area in a city ranked the sixth fastest growing small-city economy in the country. Lycoming College is home to the Outdoor Leadership and Education program, whereby students learn the joys of the outdoors combined with curriculum-based leadership, team-building skills and “learning without boundaries.”

Campus Facilities & Equipment


Lynn Science Center
Lycoming College recently built a new $7.9 million dollar facility — the Lynn Science Center. The three-level, 26,000-square-foot facility connects to the existing Heim Biology and Chemistry Building and includes a planetarium, classrooms, research and teaching labs, computer labs, faculty offices, student lounges and an atrium. The center brings all of the College’s science departments — astronomy, biology, chemistry and physics — under one roof. The physical proximity of the sciences fosters increased synergy through interdisciplinary collaboration, interaction and research. When combined with the Heim Science building, the Lynn Science Center provides Lycoming’s faculty and students with nearly 90,000 square-feet of space for teaching and learning. This new interactive and multi-curricular facility not only serves Lycoming’s students and faculty, but also benefits the greater Williamsport community as the College works in collaboration with the area’s school districts to establish learning and discovery programs, frequently benefitting not just science majors, but our education program students as well. In 2016, Lycoming College added a scanning electron microscope to the Lynn Science Center array of benefits. Students and faculty can achieve even more advanced research capabilities in a range of subjects with the acquisition of the microscope, as it fosters interdisciplinary collaboration among scientists, faculty and students, and allows them to produce the high-standard research sought by nationally-recognized publications. It also significantly improves students’ prospects for post-graduate employment and study.

Detwiler Planetarium
Located within Lynn Science Center, the new Detwiler planetarium has the most advanced projection technology from Spitz Inc., the world’s leader in full-dome education. Featuring state-of-the-art technology, the planetarium allows for much more than standard demonstrations. Digital technology enables interactive teaching and learning experiences across scientific disciplines, and enhances programs in other disciplines as well, offering, for example, recreated Civil War battles in an Imax-like experience. Students have the ability to explore the boundaries of the universe and the depths of the earth in stunning high definition detail. Physics and astronomy at Lycoming differ from many other institutions because of the emphasis on lab-based instruction. This hands-on approach helps students grasp theoretical concepts more so than simply reading about them in a textbook. From freshman year, Lycoming encourages students to take advantage of an array of equipment at their disposal, resulting in a rewarding experience for students.

Loyalsock Creek Field Station
The Loyalsock Creek Field Station is a spring 2017 addition to the Lycoming family of institutes, centers and field experience opportunities for students. It will serve the College as a hands-on, interdisciplinary venue for the biology department as well as the Clean Water Institute and Outdoor Leadership & Education programs. Located only six miles from the campus and boasting 120 acres, the land contains half a mile of stream frontage that can be utilized by both the biology department for aquatic biology studies and the Clean Water Institute to test and document water quality of the area. The Loyalsock Creek Field Station also acts as a working campsite for the Outdoor Leadership & Education organization.

Athletic Complexes and Facilities


Shangraw Athletic Complex
The Shangraw Athletic Complex is home to the College’s athletic fields, as well as other large fields that may be used for recreation, and Brandon Park (just north of campus) has tennis courts. The Athletic Complex recently received a major facelift, which included the installation of FieldTurf to replace the grass football field surface at David Person Field. Along with improving the overall aesthetics of the football stadium, the addition of an all-weather surface helped eliminate practice space issues at the complex.

Keiper Recreation Center and Lamade Gymnasium
The Keiper Recreation Center provides for students, faculty and staff to enjoy recreational sports opportunities. The 54,000 square foot Keiper Recreation Center houses a suspended indoor track overlooking 4 multipurpose courts for basketball, volleyball, tennis and other activities, with seating for 2,300. The Rec Center also includes a weight room and fitness center, both with state-of-the-art equipment, as well as locker rooms and a sauna. The Rec Center also has a Bike Share program where bikes can be checked out at the Front Desk and used on the bike paths of Williamsport or even to run errands. The center also houses a swimming pool and gallery that seats 210, a varsity athletic training room, a "multipurpose" room and Lamade Gym is also the site of the athletic department offices. The swimming pool is accessible at different times throughout the academic year for open swim.

Downtown Art Gallery
Lycoming’s Art department manages a professional art gallery in downtown Williamsport. The Lycoming College Art Gallery and the student-run Lycoming College Downtown Project Space allow both beginner and advanced students the opportunity to work with faculty and visiting artists to create public art projects in the Williamsport community, made available on a world-wide platform. Projects have included murals, billboards, large-scale banners, installations and websites.

Williamsport Community Arts Center
Lycoming College has expanded access to the Community Arts Center — a wholly owned subsidiary of Pennsylvania College of Technology in downtown Williamsport — to present performing arts, academic and community outreach events.

In addition, the Arts Center provides internship and job-shadowing opportunities for Lycoming students pursuing careers in performing arts administration, and students also participate in master classes offered by Arts Center performers. The Arts Center facility, including its Capitol Lounge, serves as a host venue for many of Lycoming College’s activities.

Off-Campus Opportunities


Williamsport is indeed a city on the rise; it is a destination for work, study and recreation with great attractions and a vibrant downtown.

Now in its fourth year, the Williamsport Internship Summer Experience is an extremely competitive 10-week preparatory program focused on both hands-on experience and soft-skill development. Open to all majors, the program provides a $3,000 stipend, free campus housing, and weekly professional development seminars for more than 20 interns each summer. Additionally, it provides for enhancement of citywide connections within Williamsport with key businesses and stakeholders. Initial outcomes have been positive and include multiple full-time job offers, and increased awareness of student opportunities within and just beyond city limits, as well as an enhanced reputation of the College, and the garnering of a PennACE Intern of the Year Award winner.

Students Say

Life at Lycoming is active and exciting. "Students [may] involve themselves…in [the] student senate or the campus activities board, [as] officers in Greek organizations or other…clubs [and] members of choir, band, and other ensembles." Moreover, there are a myriad of "volunteer opportunities, employment opportunities [and] events with speakers on relevant societal topics [as well as] programs to develop leadership [skills]." Additionally, undergrads can enjoy numerous entertainment options "such as plays, operas, dance shows, concerts, magicians, and comedians." It's also worth noting that "campus movie night is another popular activity." Undergrads do admit that once the weekend arrives, "there are parties" to be found. However, they insist that no one is ever pressured to participate. Further, when the weather allows, lots of students "spend time relaxing on the quad and play some pickup games of Frisbee and soccer." Outdoors enthusiasts can be found biking "around the Susquehanna River Walk," as well. In fact, athletics are fairly popular at Lycoming. Go Warriors! A good portion of the student body (if they're not playing), attend "sporting events to cheer on the teams."
