What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lycoming College is an amazing place. They value academics but also knowledge outside of the classroom. The extracurricular's are just as important as the academics and is strongly encouraged. They strive to make every student feel safe and welcome at all times. The sense of community is overwhelming, and so is the involvement in the city's community itself. Every member of the faculty does their best to make sure you succeed, including getting to know all of the students. It is an amazing place that gives you tons of support for the rest of your life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I had a really bad time in high school. Everyone was a part of a clique and no one really cared about you unless you had money, or you had an older sibling to get alcohol from your friends. When I set out to find a college, I looked for somewhere that I would fit in and find a home that I felt welcome in. I found exactly that at Lycoming College. As soon as I stepped foot on the campus everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The professors always go out of their way to help you in classes and make sure you are enjoying your college experience. All the staff encourages you to grow, travel, and experience things outside of Pennsylvania. While some of the buildings on campus that are outdated does not stop the staff from making sure that you have what you need to succeed at this college. Classes will be taken out of the classroom and into the community so that the student body has a solid understanding of how things work outside in the real world. You get to know everyone in your major because the class sizes are so small. This allows for study groups to organize easily and most of the time the professors will also build time into their schedules to come back to the campus to help the study groups. Overall Lycoming is a wonderful college that I highly recommend to anyone looking for small class sizes but a large family.

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.
