I absolutely love Lycoming College! I do not believe for a second that I could have chosen a better college option for me to spend 4 years at. Lycoming College offers students copious amounts of opportunities for the students to learn and participate in. The options are endless! I recently stated to my advisor during the time to pick classes that “I want to do everything but I feel that time does not permit such option.” However, the college has excellent professors for every situation, therefore my mentor was able to work with me to be even more satisfied than I already am. In the classroom, professors care about their students as the students have value to their name rather than just another face, which bigger colleges have. The location is absolutely beautiful, especially in the fall and spring as the campus is covered in beautiful colorful leaves and energetic attitudes from the students. During the spring semester, students will be hanging out on the quad together studying for exams, having meal, or taking a nap in the amazing weather. The on campus life is fantastic as so many things are always occurring 24/7. Within the dorms, you become closer to the classmates who live in your hall, which in some instances they become your lifelong friends. Nothing beats a weekend night staying up all night with your group of friends having a movie marathon or having late night study sessions, which occur a lot more often than I had expected. I thank Lycoming for allowing me to have thousands of memories that I will cherish forever. I cannot picture myself being in any other college than Lyco.
i like it very much
I enjoy being at my school because of the atmosphere it brings. The professors are always there to help you in case you need help with a project or stuck on an assignment. There are so many clubs and activities you can join and events our open to the faculty, students and the community. We get to know whats in our community by going out and doing service projects helping out with the major issues. Lycoming has a lot to offer its students and future students who decide to come to Lycoming College.
Lycoming College is a wonderful college for students who wish to have a close relationship with professors and a smaller, quaint campus vibe. Lycoming's professors and many of the staff, especially the cafeteria staff, are generally wonderful people ready to help others and offer a smile. Despite the ease of access around campus, great professors/staff, and opportunities, Lycoming's cafeteria food leaves much to be desired with very limited favorites that are not served as often. Cafe 1812 is a fantastic little coffee shop in the AC where students can grab a balanced meal or quick drink between classes which I personally love as a student for running to the cafeteria can be a huge inconvenience with a busy schedule. The art building is an old gym which requires severe updates including ventilation and newer equipment, but the professors manage with great class and constantly challenge students in their work. Williamsport itself also leaves a lot to be desired for college students, for there is not much else to do except drink when you happen to be surrounded by bars and pubs on a boring weekend. Fantastic food within walking distance and easy access to the bus system, but for a poor college student who just wants to have fun off campus or relax, there are not many options. Overall, Lycoming is a decent school full of helpful people, and many generous alumni who help fund the scholarships Lycoming is famously generous with.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Lycoming College is 69%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Apply to a lot of schools, and visit a lot of schools. Spend the weekend at your top choices, and let your decision come more from your heart and where you think you belong than where you parents or friends tell you.
I would consider the worst thing about Lycoming College to be the price of its tuition. I love Lycoming, the professors are wonderful, it is one of the few schools with my intended major and I am extremely dedicated to my academics. This being said it would be very hard for me to leave Lycoming and I definitly do not want to, I am trying to pay for it to the best of my ability. But the cost of Lycoming has given me many stressful nights thinking about how I will pay off all of my loans in the future.
You look around the cafeteria and see a lot of people just like you, white, middle class kids, there are a few students of ethnicity, and most of the african american population is on the basketball team.
Lycoming College is cohesive, enjoyable, and hardworking; it really is my home-away-from-home, sometimes more so than my actual home, and I wouldn't switch colleges for anything.
The relationships that you make with your advisors, I recently started an internship because my advisor thought I would be perfect for the job, and so far I'm loving it!
Lyco is best known for its Archaeology program.
It's small in size not far from my family in new jersey and in pennsylvania and i like everything the school had to offer and i had a good relationship with the basketball coaches who wanted me to come and play for them.
You have next to no options with meal plans, you have to be locked on campus for all four years, even if you obtain an apartment in Williamsport you are still required to live on campus.
I would recommend that a person who is accustomed to big city life and wants the large campus feel not attend Lycoming College. I would reccomend this because Lycoming is a very small campus with about 1200-1400 students. The class sizes are small and comfortable with a lot of interaction between professers and students. Lycoming College is located in Williamsport Pennsylvania which is one of the larger cities in the area but there is not much around it. A fifteen minute could easily take you out of the city and into the woods.
A person who would strongly benefit from small class sizes and being a "person" and not a "number" to his or her professors should absolutely look into Lycoming. However, I think it is imperative to someones considering Lycoming to truly investigate their financial aid packages, as it is a rather expensive institution.
The professors encourage the growth of the students. The professors are diverse in terms of personality, teaching methods, and professional background and that allows students to find professors with whom they are comfortable and can talk to about class related issues, as well as personal issues.
Some of the professors are very Christain or conservative and teach in that direction. Religion is fine, overt propaganda of a religion is not what I enrolled in school for.
