Campus Life 



History 



Lycoming is an Indian name closely associated with the north 
Central area of Pennsylvania from early colonial days. The name 
is representative since the College has been involved in the gradual 
development of this area from its founding in 1812. It began as an 
Academy with the power to grant degrees. Because of the needs 
of that day, however, the school at first concerned itself primarily 
with the early stages of the educational experience. 

As the passing of time brought increasing complexity to the 
pattern of American life, the program was changed to the prepara- 
tory, then to the junior college and finally to the liberal arts college 
level. Under the guidance of The Methodist Church, the College 
has steadily held strongly to the high ideals and standards of the 
Methodist tradition in higher education. Through the Middle 
States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, Lycoming 
enjoys the highest accreditation available to a liberal arts college. 
It cooperates freely in the Association of American Colleges. 



Tradition 



Lycoming's physical location has played a necessary part in 
determining the character of its tradition. Like other old eastern 
colleges, it is located near the center of a city. Williamsport, on the 
west branch of the Susquehanna River, has grown around and 
beyond the College campus as it has developed into a major com- 
munity. Rail, air and bus lines link it with the metropolitan cen- 
ters of the East. A radius of 200 miles includes Washington, Phila- 
delphia, New York, Albany, Syracuse, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. 

In spite of this expansion by the city, the college has maintained 
its life as an academic community with a closely knit arrangement 
of buildings on fifteen acres of land. Though set apart for the 
purpose of study, the College is awake to the demands of modem 
life and seeks to serve them with a challenging program for leader- 
ship. 

Co-educational experience in a well rounded academic, religious 
and cultural program is designed to train the student for life in 
modern society not only through the development of specialized 
talents but also through the cultivation of the whole personality. 

22 



In a small liberal arts college there is a close community of 
interest— both academic and social. The extreme individualist finds 
that he must consider the rights of others. The quiet person learns 
to take his part in the life of the college community. 

Every student can share in the exhilaration of varsity sports, 
for, whether player or spectator, he feels close to this expression of 
school spirit. He also participates in a competitive intramural 
program. 

The chapel provides a focus for the student's life. It is here 
that he goes for worship, assemblies, academic gatherings and student 
productions. Surrounding these experiences and constantly guiding 
him in them is the life of the classroom. Here he becomes familiar 
with the ideas of enduring significance that have come from the 
minds of the learned and wise men of all the ages. He learns the 
techniques of government which mankind has perfected and then 
seeks to practice them in student life. He delves into science. He 
develops the ability to read and converse in the languages of other 
lands. He discovers a new awareness of the fine arts. The open 
stacks of the library afford him the opportunity to search for the 
ideas that will meet the challenge offered in class. 

In all of this he has personal guidance as he shares his faculty 
advisor with a few other students. When he leaves the college 
for the graduate schools of the great universities, the professional 
schools of medicine, law and theology or the modern disciplines of 
engineering, forestry, industry, government and management, he 
takes with him the sharp edged tools of intellect and the broad 
cultural background of the liberal arts tradition. Human relations 
has become for him no mere professional term but a vital experience. 



Purpose 



It is the aim of Lycoming College to provide to qualified stu- 
dents education of such a nature as to supply the background for 
a more intelligent understanding and appreciation of the economic, 
political, historical, social, scientific, esthetic, and religious aspects 
of life. In addition to broad general education, courses preparatory 
to specialization in law, medicine, the ministry, dentistry, engineer- 
ing, and business, or courses preparatory to graduate work in some 
field of concentration are offered. Certificates are awarded to stu- 
dents completing two years of work in some special fields. 

23 



Extra-Curricular Activities 



Freshman Program 

The college recognizes the need for giving the freshmen assis- 
tance in making desirable adjustments to the college situation. A 
special program has been prepared for the orientation of freshmen. 

All freshmen are required to come to the college several days in 
advance of the upper-classmen. During this time various tests are 
given which will aid the college staff in advising the student in his 
choice of courses. During this period problems of freshman ad- 
justment are discussed, and directions for study, the use of the 
library, and other instructional aids are given. Provision is also 
made for recreation and introduction to a wholesome social life. 

Religious Tradition 

Lycoming College is a Methodist educational institution. How- 
ever, it is non-sectarian. A check of the Board of Directors, the 
faculty, and the student body indicates membership in twenty dif- 
ferent denominations including Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish. 
Traditionally, the college attempts to help students of all faiths find 
the place of religion in their lives. Students attend Sunday morning 
services at churches in the city. Each student is encouraged to be 
loyal to the church of his choice. 

The college aims to stress the development and practice of a 
Christian philosophy of life. Through the generosity of the late 
Honorable M. B. Rich, for eighteen years President of the Board of 
Directors, a Department of Religion has been established at the 
College. Courses in Religion (optional with non-Protestants who 
may substitute a course in Philosophy) include a systematic study 
of the Bible. The Religious Life Council is the student organization 
responsible for coordinating the religious activities of the campus. 
The Director of Religious activities serves as adviser to this group. 
Under the direction of the Council, the Committee for the Religious 
Emphasis Week brings to the campus outstanding religious leaders. 
Many of the chapel and assembly programs are religious in nature. 
Speakers include prominent civic leaders, faculty members, and 
national figures. 

The John Wesley Club is composed of students preparing for 
the ministry or other forms of religious work. Through regular 

24 



meetings and deputation teams, they gain valuable training and ex- 
perience in religious work. 

Cultural Influences 

Lycoming aims to develop in its students an easy familiarity 
with the best social forms and customs. Young men and women 
meet in the dining hall, at receptions and other social functions. 
These contacts, together with talks by instructors, do much to 
develop poise and social ease. 

The Artists and Lecturers Series provides additional opportuni- 
ties to broaden one's cultural horizon. At these events, the student 
learns to appreciate the ballet, an artist in drama, voice, or instrument, 
a lecturer, fine choral singing or group instrumental music. This is 
an important part of a liberal arts education. 

Student Government 

The college seeks to develop in each student a sense of loyalty 
and responsibility to good citizenship. To this end there is estab- 
lished a Student Government representing the entire student body 
with the purpose of promoting the general welfare of the college and 
of promoting understanding between students and administration. 

Certain phases of dormitory life are supervised and regulated 
by student dormitory governments. In this way students are pro- 
vided the experience of sharing the responsibilities which are the 
outgrowth of living closely with each other. The Dean of Women 
and the Dean of Men exercise an over-all supervisory influence on 
dormitory life. 

Campus Groups 

There are various organizations on the campus which provide 
students with an interesting and wholesome social life. These are 
organized and conducted by the students in cooperation with the 
faculty. Some of these are as follows: The International Relations 
Club, which is the campus focus for discussion of world affairs; the 
Future Teachers of America which gives prospective teachers the 
opportunity to receive current information as well as insight into the 
problems of the education field; The Lycoming College Players, 
which affords opportunity for acting and directing plays as demon- 
stration of the work in the dramatic courses of the curriculum; the 
Varsity Club, which is composed of lettermen, promotes college spirit 

25 



in sports; the Pre-Medical Society, which has discussions and hears 
lectures on various medical data; the Engineering Society for pre- 
engineering students; the Hiking Club for those interested in 
hiking; some religious groups, the Canterbury Club, the Catholic 
Club, the Lutheran Student Movement, the Student Christian 
Association, and the Methodist Student Movement. 

The College Choir and College Band are open to all students 
desiring to join. These furnish the college with music for many 
entertainments, athletic events, and celebrations throughout the year. 



College Publications 

There are six college publications. The Lycoming Courier is 
the official student paper, devoted to local interests of the student 
body, reporting current campus events. The Arrow, the college 
year book, is published in May and presents a record of student 
life during the current academic year. The staffs of both publica- 
tions are composed of students interested in gaining more knowledge 
and experience in journalism and business practices. The Alumni 
Bulletin, issued three times a year, keeps the alumni posted on cur- 
rent happenings at the college and on alumni activities. The Guide- 
post, published by the Student Government, is a student handbook 
of regulations and miscellaneous information which is distributed 
during the first week of school. The Student Bulletin is issued week- 
ly and The Faculty Bulletin as needed by the Dean's office. 



Fraternities 

Five Greek letter groups on the campus provide a means of 
bringing to men students the advantages of national fraternal organi- 
zation as well as group housing. They include the Psi Chapter of 
Kappa Delta Rho, Beta Lambda Chapter of Sigma Pi, Iota Beta Zeta 
Chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha, Epsilon Beta Chapter of Theta Chi, 
and the Nu Chapter of Alpha Gamma Upsilon. 

The Inter-Fraternity Council coordinates the activities of the 
fraternities.

General Programs and Rules 



Intercollegiate Sports 

The college offers an attractive program of intercollegiate ath- 
letics and encourages wide participation by its students. It is a 
member of the Middle Atlantic Athletic Conference and the National 
Collegiate Athletic Association. Lycoming annually meets some of 
the top-ranking small college teams in the country in athletic com- 
petition. Contests are scheduled with other colleges in football, 
basketball, wrestling, baseball, tennis, golf, swimming, and soccer. 

Intramural Athletics 

An extensive and diversified program of intramural athletic 
competition affords opportunity for every student to participate in 
one or more sports of his own choosing. 

Sports for men include touch football, basketball, volleyball, 
bowling, badminton, table tennis, tennis, softball, golf, wresding, 
swimming, horseshoes, track and field. 

Sports for women include competition in basketball, volleyball, 
bowling, badminton, table tennis, tennis, softball, swimming, field 
hockey, archery, and rhythmical activities. Field days are arranged 
with WAA groups of other colleges and universities during the 
school year. 

Physical Education 

Physical Education is one phase of the education of the whole 
student. It is here that the student develops not only in physical 
ability, but also in leadership and in proper habits of living. Here 
students are encouraged to gain and improve skills, attitudes, and 
knowledge that will provide a sound recreational outlet following 
graduation. It is to this end that the program of activities is directed. 

Physical Education is required of all freshmen and sophomores 
except veterans, who are exempt. All classes are for the purpose 
of instruction. 

The college accepts no financial responsibility for medical, 
surgical, or other expenses arising from injuries occurring in physical 
education classes or the intramural program which exceeds the care 
provided for in the normal college Infirmary service. 

29 



Required Health Information 

The following data is required by the College Physician: (1) 
a medical report signed by the candidate's physician and by his 
parent or guardian; and (2) a card signed by the physician indicating 
the basis for any necessary restriction in, or exclusion from, the 
physical education activity program. 

Veterans are exempt from the second requirement. 

In connection with the physical examination, all entering stu- 
dents must have a chest X-ray. If this cannot be arranged before 
entering, the Tuberculosis Society will take chest X-rays at a nomi- 
nal cost. The student bears the expense of the X-ray. 



Infirmary Service 

The infirmary fee, included in the over-all activities fee, covers 
the following medical service: the college nurse holds infirmary 
hours each day, except Sunday, that the college dormitories are 
open; she is also available for first aid treatment and will call to 
the attention of the college physician any case demanding special 
treatment. 

Such service, however, shall not be interpreted to include X- 
rays, surgery of more than minor nature, care of major accidents 
on or off campus, immunization for colds, examination for glasses, 
doctors' calls, cases of serious chronic disorder, or other extraordi- 
nary situation. 

Special nursing service and special medicines and prescriptions 
will be at the expense of the student. Parents will be notified by 
the College when students are confined to the infirmary with serious 
illnesses. 



Student Insurance 

By a special group plan, our students are able to secure acci- 
dent and sickness insurance covering medical and hospital expenses 
whether at home or at college during one academic year. Reim- 
bursement will be made up to $500.00 for each accident. All stu- 
dents are advised to carry this protection. 

30 



Guidance 

An advantage of a small college is the rich experience gained by 
the close association of students and faculty. In addition to this 
valuable personal relationship, which affords students the opportu- 
nity to discuss various problems with their instructors, Lycoming 
has a well-rounded guidance program for its students. Under the 
direction of the Dean of the College, this program includes areas 
as represented by the Dean of Men, the Dean of Women, and the 
Guidance Director with his group of faculty advisers. 

The program begins with a personal interview between the 
Director of Admissions and the candidate for admission. These 
interviews are sufficient in length to obtain a picture of the student, 
his background, and his plans for the future. When the student 
enters the College as a Freshman, he is given the opportunity to take 
aptitude and psychological examinations. On the basis of preparatory 
or high school grades, interest inventories, and other psychological 
tests, the student is offered counseling in the area of educational 
and vocational choice. Additional counseling is available to the stu- 
dent in the area of personal and emotional adjustment. WTiere spe- 
cific need is indicated by the student, the Guidance Director is pre- 
pared to offer intensive personal adjustment counseling. 

At any point in his college career, the student's welfare is the 
sole purpose of the guidance program. It stands ready to help him 
make intelligent decisions concerning vocational and educational 
choices, and to solve important personal problems. 



Placement Service 

The Placement Bureau maintains a register listing the talents 
and major interests of students and recent alumni. Literature 
from businesses and industrial associations is kept available. Con- 
sultations with the Placement Director assist students toward wise 
selection of a profession. Interviews are then scheduled at which 
students meet and confer with representatives from companies in 
which they are interested. The goal of the Bureau is to make the 
best possible connection for each graduate. Lycoming graduates 
are usually placed before commencement. 

There are many diversified businesses in Williamsport. These 
firms give students at Lycoming spendid opportunities for visits, 
tours, and career conferences. They also afford the student body a 

31 



variety of part-time jobs during each college session. The Place- 
ment Bureau serves as a clearinghouse for part-time employment 
and can usually find work for every student needing it. 



Provisions for Veterans 

Lycoming is fully approved for the educational program fot 
Veterans under Federal Public Laws 550, 634, and 894. 



Dormitory Life 

Dormitory life is a significant part of the college experience. 

Rooms at Lycoming are furnished as follows: desk, bureau, 
chair, single bed, mattress, and pillow. Students must supply their 
own bed linen, blankets, and alarm clocks. The men can make 
their rooms more attractive by using throw rugs and plastic drapes. 

The students will make their own arrangements for laundry ser- 
vice. A local laundry has a representative on campus for the con- 
venience of all boarding students. It is recommended that the 
student bring a minimum of six sheets (single bed), three pillow 
cases, and two double blankets. 



Discipline 

The discipline of the College is firm, reasonable, and sympa- 
thetic. All students are considered responsible citizens and mem- 
bers of a Christian community. Any student who is antagonistic 
to the spirit and general purpose, or who fails to abide by the 
regulations set up by the College, may be asked to withdraw from 
the College at any time during the school year. 



Regulations 

It is understood that students entering Lycoming do so with the 
intention of making an honest effort to do satisfactory work in every 
respect. When a student is not able to conform to the school pro- 
gram, the parents or guardians are asked to withdraw the student 
from the school. 

The College regulations, in addition to those published here, are 
furnished each student upon matriculation. Announcements dur- 

32 



ing the year by college authorities may amend or supplement the 
catalogue regulations and are to be adhered to as such. 

Students from a distance are required to reside in the dormi- 
tories. Permission for any exception to this rule must be obtained 
from the administration. When such permission is granted, the 
place of residence and living accommodations must be approved by 
the Dean of Women or the Dean of Men. 

Money and valuables should be placed in the school safe; other- 
wise the College will not assume responsibility. 

No intoxicants or drinking of intoxicants is permitted on 
campus. 

Students found in an intoxicated condition will be expelled. 

Permission to maintain automobiles on the campus must be 
obtained from the administration and official decals must be secured 
from the College Bookstore. Freshman men and all resident women 
are not permitted to maintain automobiles while attending the 
College. 

Firearms for hunting must be deposited with the Dean of Men 
while on the campus. 

Dormitory students are expected to vacate their rooms during 
the vacation periods. Exceptions must be reported to the Dean of 
Men.

Academic Program 



Standards 



Grading System 

A credit hour is defined as one hour of classroom work, or the 
equivalent, each week during a full term of sixteen weeks. Ordi- 
narily two hours of laboratory work are rated as one credit hour. 

The number system of grading with the corresponding quality 
points is used. "3" indicates work of the highest excellence, show- 
ing a superior grasp of the content, as well as independent and 
creative thinking in the subject. "2" signifies better than average 
achievement wherein the student reveals insight and ability. "1" is 
given for satisfactory achievement on the college level when work in 
the course has been conscientious and has shown no considerable de- 
ficiency in either quality or quantity. "0" indicates that work in 
the course has met the minimum essentials. "-1" is failure. Work 
failed must be repeated satisfactorily before any credit can be 
obtained for that course. 

Scholastic rank is determined on the quality point system where 
"3" counts 3 quality points per credit hour, "2" counts 2 points per 
hour, "1" counts 1 point per hour, "0" carries no point value, and 
"-1" counts -1 point per hour. 



Probation 

All students who receive an average of .5 or less during the first 
semester will be placed on academic probation and must attain an 
average of at least 1.0 during the second semester or be automatically 
dismissed from the college. 

All students who receive an average between .5 and 1.0 during 
the first semester must attain an average of at least 1.0 during the 
second semester, or they will be placed on academic probation. Such 
students must attain at least 1.0 during their subsequent session 
(either summer school or the fall semester) or they will be dismissed 
from the college at the conclusion of that session. 

The probation rule does not prevent the immediate dismissal of 
any student who establishes an exceptionally low academic record 
in any semester. 

36 



Dismissal 

Freshmen who fail to maintain an average of at least .00 the 
first year shall be asked to withdraw from the College. Upper 
classmen whose averages fall below .00 for any semester may be 
asked to withdraw from the College. The College also reserves the 
right to deny admission to any applicant or to dismiss any student 
at any time if the administration considers such action to be for the 
best interests of the student or the College. Students dismissed for 
academic reasons may request reinstatement after one semester. 
Readmission of a student may be refused if in the considered opin- 
ion of the Admissions Committee he does not meet all the require- 
ments of the College in the specific curriculum for which readmission 
has been sought. 



Attendance 

The program at Lycoming is built on the assumption that there 
is value in class and assembly and chapel attendance for all stu- 
dents. Therefore, all students are expected to attend all classes 
and a specified number of assembly and chapel exercises. 

Specific regulations as to permissible absences and penalties for 
excessive absences are announced from time to time. Responsi- 
bility for learning and complying with these regulations rests with 
the student. 



Normal Student Load 

The normal load per semester for students is from twelve to 
fifteen hours of academic work and two classes per week of physical 
education during the first two years. Freshmen also attend one 
Study Habits class each week. 



Overload 

Students who wish to carry in excess of the normal load are 
charged $17.50 per credit hour. A schedule of more than seventeen 
hours of academic work may be taken if the student has an average 
of 2.0 for all previous work and obtains written permission from 
the Dean of the College or has an average below 2.0 and receives 
the written permission of a special committee. 

37

Admission 



Admissions Policy 

The policy of Lycoming College is to admit applicants who, in 
the opinion of the Admissions Committee are best qualified to profit 
by the opportunities offered by the College, and who can at the 
same time make positive contributions to undergraduate life. Due 
consideration is given not only to academic attainment, as evidenced 
by school records and examinations, but also to the applicant's char- 
acter, personality, and interest and accomplishments in extracurricular 
pursuits. 

Admission to Lycoming College is on a competitive basis. Early 
application, while encouraged, does not assure admission. 



Application Procedure 

Persons desiring to apply for admission should request official 
forms from the Director of Admissions. 

The Admissions Office compiles a personal file for each appli- 
cant and the following items must be submitted before final accept- 
ance is approved : 

1. Application for Admission and secondary school record on 
forms supplied by the College. A registration fee of $10.00 must 
accompany each application. This fee is not refundable. 

2. A small recent photograph (approximately 2"x3") of the 
applicant. 

3. A personal interview with the Director of Admissions or an 
appointed representative. 

4. The Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Ex- 
amination Board. Applicants wishing to enter the College in Sep-

The responsibility for arranging to take these examinations rests 
with the applicant. However, the Director of Admissions will be 
glad to advise any applicant on this matter if requested. 

Following receipt of the above items, the Admissions Committee 
will determine those applicants who can be accepted. All applicants 
will be notified accordingly by letter as promptly as possible. Action 
of the Admissions Committee must be regarded as final. 



Admissions Requirements 

The usual evidence of academic preparation to enter Lycoming 
College is the satisfactory completion of 1 5 units of high school work 
as follows: 

English History Math. Science Elec 

*A.B. Degree 3 (4 yrs.) 

B.S. Degree 3 (4 yrs.) 

Medical Sec. (2 years) 3 (4 yrs.) 

Medical Tech. (2 years) 3 (4 yrs.) 

Sec. Science (2 years) 3 (4 yrs.) 1 11

Terminal Education 

In addition to programs leading to the Baccalaureate Degree, 
Lycoming offers certain two-year terminal courses in Medical Secre- 
tarial, Medical Technology, and Secretarial Science. Upon satis- 
factory completion of these courses, the student is awarded a certifi- 
cate at the graduation exercises. 



Advanced Standing 

A limited number of students with advanced standing may be 
admitted to Lycoming each year. The determining factors in con- 
sidering such applicants will be their academic records at the previous 
college, their field of concentration, and the reasons prompting their 
desire to transfer. All transfer applicants must show evidence of 
honorable dismissal from their previous college(s), must submit an 

40 



official transcript of all work taken at other colleges, and come to 
the campus for a personal interview. A student admitted with ad- 
vanced standing is required to be in residence at Lycoming for one 
academic year. Transfer students must satisfy the College graduation 
requirements to be awarded a degree. 

Some academic credit may be allowed for training courses and 
educational experiences in the armed services according to the gen- 
eral pattern recommended by A Guide to the Evaluation of Educa- 
tional Experiences in the Armed Services, issued by the American 
Council on Education, provided such courses or experiences are ap- 
propriately related to a college of liberal arts. 



Admission to Summer Sessions and Evening Classes 

Persons desiring admission to summer sessions or evening classes 
should apply to the Director of Admissions. All candidates for de- 
grees must meet the same entrance requirements as those attending 
regular session day classes. 

Applicants who hold degrees from other colleges or universities 
will be admitted as special students. Such applicants should present 
written evidence stating the field of concentration, the degree, and 
the date conferred. 

All other applicants who desire admission to specific courses 
will be considered on the basis of preparation and experience.

floor of the Old Main Building. The office is open Monday thru 
Friday from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m., and on Saturday from 9 a. m. until

calling the office. 

All applicants are invited to visit the campus if possible and to 
inspect the facilities of the College and meet with some of its offi- 
cials. Appointments are not required, but visitors are advised to 
arrange for them if they wish to see particular members of the 
administrative staff or facultv. 



41 



Curricula 



Programs of Study 

Lycoming College confers the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor 
of Science degrees after eight semesters of study normally taken over 
a course of four years. The Bachelor of Arts is taken in the liberal 
arts and sciences. It provides broad training in preparation for 
graduate work or immediate service to the community in places of 
leadership. Major areas of study include: Art, Biology, Chemistry, 
Economics, English, History, Language, Mathematics, Music, Philos- 
ophy, Physical Science, Political Science, Psychology, Social Science, 
and Sociology. (Fields of concentration in Social Science may be 
selected in Economics, History, Sociology, Political Science, or 
Psychology.) Professional areas of preparation include medicine, 
dentistry, law, the ministry, art, music, teaching, engineering 
and forestry. The first four require additional training at profes- 
sional schools. Engineering and forestry are taken in five year 
cooperative programs with Bucknell University, The Pennsylvania 
State University, and Duke University. 

The Bachelor of Science is taken in the specific fields of 
business administration, medical technology, nursing, and teaching. 
If the student wishes to spend two years in certain fields of study 
given by the college, a certificate of credit hours completed will be 
issued at the end of that period. Schedules may be adjusted with a 
two year program in view. 

All schedules are planned individually with an advisor. Enter- 
ing students plan with the Director of Admissions. Second semes- 
ter freshmen and sophomores plan with general faculty advisors. 
Juniors and seniors plan with divisional and department heads. 

All seniors, during the first semester of their final year, check 
with the Registrar for graduation requirements. 

Freshman and Sophomore Years 

During these first two years the student in the liberal arts 
and sciences program takes a broad course in general education. 
He not only has the opportunity to develop wide understanding 
of the world in which he lives, but also discovers where his own 
talents and interests lie. Thus he is prepared to choose a major 
field at the end of his sophomore year. 

42 



During the freshman year he takes: 

(1) English Composition— This is to develop a facility for 
reading and writing that will help him in the transition from high 
school to college level work. One of the requirements of our mod- 
ern civilization in business as well as the professions is that the 
individual be able to express himself freely and clearly. Those 
students who are not adequately prepared in grammar for college 
study may be required to successfully complete a non-credit course in 
remedial grammar. 

(2) History of Western Civilization— No student can proceed 
to specific fields of study until he fully understands the backgrounds 
of our western way of life. 

(3) Natural Science— Though there is choice in the field of 
science that he may study, each student must have an experience in 
scientific method, which has been the great development in western 
civilization during this century. 

(4) A Foreign Language— Though he may have further choice 
as to the particular language he studies, no student could expect 
to understand the small world of today without knowing some other 
language than his own and also the way in which that language 
was developed. Understanding the symbols of communication is a 
major step in the process of abstract thought. 

(5) A Survey Course in Cultural Appreciation— It opens up 
these cultural areas for enrichment of life. 

(6) Religion— A broad background study in the historical 
development of the Hebrew-Christian traditions. 

During his sophomore year, he takes: 

(1) English and American Literature— Having learned to ex- 
press himself the student now gets a glimpse of the way the great 
English and American writers have expressed themselves. This 
course is a source of future personal reading habits as well as an 
understanding of our culture. 

(2) United States History— Having received the background 
of western civilization, the student learns our American contribution 
to the present world scene. 

(3) Foreign Language— If the student has not taken suffi- 
cient language in secondary school, he must continue his language 
study for the second year. If he has satisfactorily passed two years 
of the language in secondary school, he must take only the year of 
intermediate language in college although he may wish to continue 
in Advanced Conversation. 

(4) Psychology and Political Science— These requirements 

43 



introduce him to the fields as well as provide a broad survey for his 
general background. 

(5) Philosophy— This requirement gives him perspective on 
life as a whole as well as the basic purpose of the College. 

From the broad understanding that the student has received 
and the perspective that he has gained in several fields, he is able 
to choose a major. This requires at least 24 credit hours in his chos- 
en field. In some cases, courses from different departments may be 
grouped together to form a major. This leaves a wide range of 
courses for a minor field of study and electives to broaden his educa- 
tion. He plans his program for the next two years with the division- 
al or departmental head of his major field of study.

Pre-Medicine 

The modern physician or surgeon is no longer one who has studied 

merely medicine. He is a man with a broad cultural training, capable of 

treating more than physical ailments. Therefore, medical authorities are 
recommending a full four years of liberal arts program and are requiring 
certain specific subjects in preparation for medical school.

Nursing 

The five-year Nursing Plan, which leads to the B.S. degree, offers to 
young women an opportunity to obtain a liberal arts education in connection 
with a nurse's education. 

The program of the first three years consists of the regular nursing training 
curriculum taken in the School of Nursing at the Williamsport Hospital. If a 
student enters from another school of nursing approved by the Pennsylvania 
State Board of Nurse Examiners where no college science courses are offered, 
she must also take Chemistry 103, Biology 103, and Biology 104 and 114. To 
qualify for the college degree, passing of the State Board Examinations is 
required. 

Students who take their nursing training in some other state must present 
equivalent training to that required in Pennsylvania.

Expenses and Scholarships 



Expenses 



General Expenses 

In considering the expenses of college, it is well to bear in mind 
that no student actually pays the full cost of his education. State 
colleges are enabled to keep the cost of tuition within reasonable 
limits by grants from the public treasury; independent colleges 
achieve this by voluntary contributions supplemented by income 
from their invested endowment funds. At Lycoming College, the 
tuition fee which each student pays represents only a portion of 
the total instruction cost. Tuition is kept at the lowest possible 
minimum consistent with adequate facilities and competent in- 
struction. 

Tuition at Lycoming is $250.00 per semester, plus certain fees 
which are listed on the following pages. For students taking meals 
at the College, Rooms in Rich Hall, Rich Hall Annex, the Men's 
new Dormitory, and the Fraternity Houses are $100.00 per semester. 
In Old Main— $75.00 per semester. (The academic year comprises 
two semesters of approximately sixteen weeks each.) If for any 
justifiable reason it is impossible for a student to eat in the College 
Dining Hall, permission may be given the student to make other 
arrangements for meals. However, in the event such permission is 
granted, the room cost will be 50% higher than the above rates. If 
a student requests the use of a double room as a single room and 
the room is available, he will be charged 50% more than regular rates. 

Regularly enrolled students carrying a normal schedule of from 
13 to 16 hours of class or laboratory pay the full tuition charge. 
Those students taking fewer than 13 hours of work per semester, or 
fewer than 6 hours of work per semester in the summer session, are 
charged $17.50 per credit hour. Additional credits beyond the 
normal schedule of 16 hours are charged at the rate of $17.50 for 
each semester hour credit. Additional detailed information will be 
furnished by the Treasurer's office upon request. 

Application Fee and Deposit 

All students applying for admission are required to send an 
application fee of $10.00 with the application. This charge is to 

106 



defray the costs of processing the application, and of keeping 
academic records. 

After a resident student is notified that he has been accepted for 
admission by the college, he is required to make a deposit of $50.00. 
This deposit is evidence of the applicant's good intention to matricu- 
late, and serves as a room reservation fee. 

Non-resident students are required to make a deposit of $25.00 
after they are notified that they have been accepted. Deposits re- 
quired of both resident and non-resident students are applicable to 
the general charges of the semester, and are not extra fees. 

All returning students are required to pay a deposit of $25.00 
on or before July 1, to reserve their place in the student body. This 
fee is credited to their account. No fees are returned except in 
case of illness. 

Books and Supplies 

A modern book and supply store is conveniently located on 
the campus. Books and supplies are purchased by the individual 
student. The estimated cost is approximately $65.00 per year, but 
will vary somewhat in accordance with the course of study which 
the student is pursuing. The bookstore is open registration day 
and daily thereafter. 

Art and Music 

Tuition for art and music majors is higher than it is for the 
other courses of study. In these programs best results are obtained 
by individual instruction; consequently the expense is greater. The 
cost in excess of the normal tuition varies according to the student's 
program of study but does not exceed $50.00 per semester. The 
exact cost is determined at the time of registration. 

Special or part time music students are charged $50.00 per 
semester for one one-half hour lesson per week. 

A charge of $5.00 per semester for piano and $10.00 per semes- 
ter for organ is made when these instruments are required for 
practice. These rates are for one period per day for each lesson 
scheduled. 

Special or part time applied art students will be charged $60.00 
for six class periods per week (three credit hours).

before registration day of each semester as follows: 

Resident Students $350.00 

Non-Resident Students 175.00 

Bills are not sent for the initial payment, but at mid-semester an itemized 

statement, showing all charges and payments, will be mailed to the person 

who is responsible. On receipt of the bill the balance of term charges will 

be due and payable. 

All grants, scholarships, and earnings from college employment will be 

appUed to the student's account at the end of the semester. 

Partial Payments 

For the convenience of those who find it impossible to follow the sched- 
ule of payments as listed, the College has made arrangements with The 

108 



Tuition Plan, Incorporated, for the monthly payment of college fees. Ad- 
ditional information concerning partial payments may be obtained from the 
Treasurer, or Director of Admissions. 

Withdrawals and Refunds 

The date on which the Dean of the College approves the student's with- 
drawal sheet is considered the official date of withdrawal. In the case of 
minors, the approval of the parent or guardian is required before the with- 
drawal is approved and before any refund is made. 

Room rentals have been fixed on a semester basis. Consequendy, stu- 
dents leaving college prior to the ending of a semester will not be entided to 
any refund on room rent. Board will be pro-rated by the week over the period 
of attendance. 

Refund of tuition will be made to students who withdraw voluntarily 
from the College while in good standing and is fixed on the following basis: 
Students leaving during the first four-week period are charged 30%; during 
the second four weeks 60%; during the third four weeks, 90%; after twelve 
weeks, full charge. 

Dropping a subject from the original schedule after the first week of 
either semester will not justify any claim for refund of tuition charges. Writ- 
ten permission to drop the subject must be obtained from the Dean's Office. 
No refund will be made to those students who are asked to withdraw from 
college. 

Other fees cannot be refunded for any reason whatever. 

Penalty for Non-Payment of Fees 

A student will not be registered for courses in a new semester if his 
account for previous attendance has not been setded. 

No grades will be issued, no diploma, certificate, transcript of credits, or 
certification of withdrawal in good standing will be granted to any student 
until a satisfactory setdement of all obligations has been made. 

Damage Charges 

Wherever possible, damage to dormitory property will be charged to 
the person or persons direcdy responsible. Damage and breakage occurring 
in a room will be the responsibility of students occupying the room. 

Halls and bathroom damage will be the responsibility of all students of 
the section where damage occurs. Actual costs of repairs will be charged. 

Financial Assistance 

Financial assistance is available through grants from The Methodist 
Church to children of ministers and ministerial students. Consideration is 
also given to families with more than one student at the College. 

Not more than one grant will be allowed to any student. 

109 



The college reserves the right to withdraw any grant from a student 
whose scholarship or behavior is unsatisfactory. 

No grant is allowed on Music and Art, whether taken as extra-subjects 
in connection with a regular course or whether the student is majoring in one 
of these subjects. 



Loans 

A limited number of worthy students, members of die Methodist Church 
may secure loans from the Student Loan Fund administered by the Board 
of Education of that Church. Christian character, satisfactory scholarship, 
promise of usefulness, financial responsibility, and the recommendation of 
the church to which the applicant belongs are essential to a loan. 

There are also loan funds in the Philadelphia and the Central Penn- 
sylvania Conferences of the Methodist Church for students from these con- 
ferences on practically the same terms as above. 

The income from $10,000, from the Mr. and Mrs. Robert F. Rich Loan
