One of Williamsport's best-kept secrets. Growing up here I never realized the great opportunities this college could afford me. If anyone was looking for a good college with connections to get their start on life, I would definitely have Lycoming on my list for them!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school has fantastic faculty who are easily accessible and committed to helping students make the absolute most of their education. Ambition goes a long way at Lycoming College. I had a great experience with my department as well (Political Science). Dr. Payne and Dr. Williamson were fantastic. It is worth highlighting that they both stress an objective approach to political science - cut out the normative stuff. I generally felt the same with the economics department. This made a major impression on me and I'm glad I didn't pay for indoctrination. If you're going for sociology/psychology/anthropology/or history, this is a different story. Personally, I felt very well equipped to continue my graduate education after completing my undergrad here. I secured a high quality internship right before graduating. I definitely recommend Lycoming College to people who are ambitious and are serious about making the most of their education. If you're in it to party and get the social "college experience" that is another matter. Reslife and security crack down on parties a lot! The weekends are usually pretty dead unless you've got a group of friends to regularly do stuff with. On that note, there are a lot of good bars, restaurants, and entertainment venues around the college. Downtown Williamsport is actually pretty nice. The school has been making serious efforts to promote healthier extracurricular stuff like weekend trips to different cities/outdoor events/etc. Greek life is fairly popular - but not my thing (IMPORTANT: fraternities/sororities don't have their own houses so the school seriously cracks down on them). Overall, Lycoming will definitely give you more of an academic experience. If that's what you want, give Lycoming serious consideration.

Lycoming had the friendliest staff out of every college I have visited. They are all very helpful and accessible. The school gives a lot of opportunity to try many different courses as well. The best part was how much the teachers really seemed to love being there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Lycoming College. The campus is gorgeous and the people are amazing! Even better yet, there is a great amount of diversity--groups of people who are interested in anything and everything--so you are sure to find a place where you fit. Lyco offers financial aid to just about every student who attends, and you get the best bang for your buck. Professors are personable and you get to know at least one faculty member on a personal level. There are tons of opportunities for work on campus, chances to work on special academic interest projects with professors, and tons of extracurriculars--we even get free tickets to our yearly campus concert!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I were to go back in time to the Spring of 2007, on the verge of my high school graduation, I would have a lot to say to my high school self. Unfortunately, my high school self, much like many high schoolers, knew it all; no one could tell 17-year-old Vickey anything. However, I would stress to her how painfully important it is to make every effort to investigate the financial strain a college education will cause future Vickey. My biggest piece of advice to my high school self would be: make scholarship applications a part-time job. It is imperative to never pass up an opportunity to earn money towards the most vital investment of your life, and unfortunately, it will not be easy paying this investment back without a little bit of help. I would like to give my high school self some insight on my future self - the one who is currently trying to make up for time lost and apply for scholarships to pay for these hefty loans. High school self - please, please be wise in your financial decisions. You will be upset with yourself in the future; I promise.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Lycoming College would be best known for their business and biology programs academically. Athletically, Lycoming puts most of their weight into the football team. Lycoming College, to it's students, is known for being a small, "big fish in a small pond" school. It is terribly difficult to go anywhere on campus without seeing a peer that you recognize.

What kind of person should attend this school?

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.
