III YCOMING offers college courses for young men and women. 

Ill It provides facilities for both day and boarding students, 
offering terminal courses in the Junior College Division and a four- 
year program in the Liberal Arts College leading to the Bachelor 
of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees. 


It is located at Williamsport, Pennsylvania, "The Queen City 
of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River," on the famed Sus- 
quehanna Trail, midway between Buffalo, New York, and Wash- 
ington, D. C. Williamsport is famed for its picturesque scenery, 
its beautiful homes, and the culture and kindness of its people. 
The Pennsylvania and Reading Railroads, with their fast trains, 
and the Lakes-to-Sea and the Greyhound Busses put it within two 
hours' reach of Harrisburg, four and a half hours of Philadelphia, 
and six hours of Pittsburgh and New York. Capital and TWA 
Airlines place the time at forty minutes to Harrisburg, an hour and 
ten minutes to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, two hours to New 
York, and about three hours to Boston. 


Lycoming College has a long and varied history of service in the 
educational field. Founded in 1812, it was known for a period of 
thirty-six years as Williamsport Academy. In 1848 a group of men 
of Williamsport, under the leadership of Reverend Benjamin H. 
Crever, hearing that the Academy was about to be discontinued, 
proposed to accept the school and conduct it as a Methodist educa- 
tional institution. Their offer was accepted and, completely reor- 
ganized with a new president and faculty, it opened September, 


1848, as Dickinson Seminary, under the patronage of the old Balti- 
more Conference. It was acquired in 1869 and is still owned by the 
Preachers' Aid Society of the Central Pennsylvania Conference of 
the Methodist Church, and is regularly chartered under the laws of 
the state of Pennsylvania. It is not a money-making institution. 
All of its earnings as well as the generous gifts of its friends have 
been spent for maintenance and improvements. During a large 
part of its history, its curriculum covered the work now included in 
a high school course and at the same time included about two years 
of college work. By its original charter it was empowered to grant 
degrees, which authority was for a time exercised. In 1912 it 
began to confine itself to the college preparatory field and continued 
in that field until 1929. From that date until June, 1947, it oper- 
ated as a preparatory school and junior college. The increased 
college attendance following the war, and trends in higher education 
in recent years clearly indicated a need for more four year colleges. 
After giving the matter careful consideration, the Board of Direc- 
tors, at a special meeting January, 1947, authorized and set in 
motion plans to adopt a four year college program. In 1948, after 
approval of the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the charter 
was amended to include the power to grant Baccalaureate Degrees. 
Also the name of the institution was officially changed to Lycoming 
College. Lycoming is an Indian name closely associated with this 
region from early colonial days. The college preparatory depart- 
ment was discontinued June, 1948, and this catalogue contains 
announcements of all four years of work on the college level. 

The campus is located near the center of the city on a slight 
eminence, which causes the school to be affectionately referred to as 
"The School Upon the Hilltop." Stately elms, maples, and trees 
of other varieties add beauty and dignity to the campus and form an 
attractive setting for the imposing buildings. To the south and 
across the Susquehanna, within twenty minutes' walk, is the beau- 
tiful Bald Eagle Range of the Allegheny Mountains, affording a 
view of perennial charm. To the north are the Grampian Hills. 
In fact, Williamsport, "beautiful for location," is seldom surpassed 
or equaled in its wealth of beautiful scenery. 



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 the broad, general education, courses prepara- 
tory to specialization in the professions of law, medicine, dentistry, 
engineering, etc., or courses preparatory to graduate work in some 
field of concentration are offered. Terminal education is available 
in Art, Laboratory Technology, Medical Secretarial, Music, and 
Secretarial Science. 


OLD MAIN. The Main Building is an imposing structure of 
brick, occupying the central part of the campus. In this building 
are the administrative offices, class rooms, and dormitories for men. 
There are hardwood floors throughout. 

BRADLEY HALL. Bradley Hall, a four story building, is con- 
structed of red brick, and contains the Dramatic Studio, the Gray 
Memorial Library, and one floor of Men's Dormitories. 

RICH HALL. Dedicated October 15, 1948, Lycoming's modern, 
brick, women's dormitory is of Georgian Colonial style and fireproof 
in construction. This beautiful building houses 120 young women. 
Each suite of two rooms has private bath facilities which are shared 
by four students. Lounges are conveniently located for entertain- 
ing guests and for small student meetings. Also located in the 
building are the Infirmary and Nurses' Quarters, game rooms, and 
the Women's Day Room. The building has been completely fur- 
nished with new and attractive furnishings. 

EVELAND HALL. Eveland Hall is also of red pressed brick, 
and is a modern fire-proof building. The basement houses the 
heating plant. A modern chemistry laboratory and class rooms 
occupy the first floor. The second and third floors contain dormi- 


THE GYMNASIUM. Lycoming is fortunate in having a splendid 
modern gymnasium, which is a popular center of activities. The 
building is 110 feet by 88 feet, beautifully designed and of semi- 
fireproof construction. 

The basement includes a modern swimming pool 20 by 60 feet, 
equipped with a sterilization and filtration plant. The pool is con- 
structed of tile and is amply lighted, with windows of glass blocks, 
making a sunlit pool at nearly all hours of the day. 

There are also two bowling alleys of latest design, and separate 
rooms and showers for both home and visiting teams. Provision for 
private dressing rooms and shower rooms for women is made. 

The gymnasium floor proper is 90 by 65 feet with a stage at the 
easterly end so that the main floor can readily be converted into an 
auditorium if need be, suitable for recitals and even more preten- 
tious productions. 

ATHLETIC FIELD. Built partially on the site of the old 
athletic field, the new field runs north and south, beginning directly 
behind the gymnasium and dining hall, and extending to the terrace 
just off Washington Boulevard on the north. Ample room is pro- 
vided for tennis courts and football field, with facilities for softball 
and other intramural sports. 

New bleachers have been erected which accommodate 1,000 
people. They have wooden seats on a steel and concrete founda- 
tion, with an attractive brick wall at the rear, surmounted with a 
wrought iron fence. Evergreens, rose of Sharon, and spiraea line 
the inside of the fence. 

CLARKE MEMORIAL. This new chapel and dining hall, made 
possible by the bequest of Miss Martha B. Clarke of the class of 
1862 as a memorial to her brothers and herself, is designed in the 
colonial style, and is of fireproof construction. The chapel proper, 
which has excellent acoustics, provides facilities for devotional 
services, assemblies, dramatic concerts and lectures. With the 
balcony, it is planned to seat six hundred people. 


The dining hall, on the first floor, is arranged with separate 
entrances and with coat rooms and wash rooms for men and women. 
It opens on a terrace overlooking the campus and athletic field. 
Effort has been made to produce a comfortable, home-like room. 
Either table service or cafeteria service is possible. 

The erection of this building fits into the plan of an attractive 
quadrangle. Other improvements extend the open campus to 
Washington Boulevard. 

FINE ARTS. The buildings on the extreme northern portion of 
the campus on Washington Boulevard, facing the campus, provide 
a modern home for the President, and a well-equipped Fine Arts 
Building for music and art. The Art Studio takes the full northern 
sweep on the second floor of the Fine Arts Building. Also on that 
floor are a number of private practice studios, and conference rooms 
for members of the faculty. On the main floor of the building 
there are three large music studios and several smaller rooms for 
private piano practice. The interior walls are finished in light 
buff, and the floors in oak. There are eighteen rooms in the new 
building which are devoted entirely to Fine Arts. 

MEMORIAL HALL. Memorial Hall was dedicated on Novem- 
ber 1, 1947. It is a three-story building and has floor space of 8000 
square feet. It contains class rooms, departmental offices, and the 
biology and physics laboratories. This building, erected through 
the cooperation of the college and the Federal Works Agency, is 
attractively faced with red brick. 

THE ANNEX. To the south of Bradley Hall another class room 
building has been erected by the Federal Works Agency. De- 
partmental offices are also located here. 


The library is playing an increasingly important part in any 
educational program today. The Dr. E. J. Gray Memorial Library, 
occupying two floors of Bradley Hall, is commodious, well-lighted 


Air//'.s Doniiitovy 

and arranged for research and reflective reading. There are now 
more than 13,500 volumes to which new volumes are added each 
year. A very excellent list of reference works has been provided 
and a group of books for general reading has been added in order to 
stimulate the interest of the students in books not directly related to 
their special interests. 

Currently the library has a subscription to one hundred and 
two periodicals, covering all subject fields offered by the college, 
and five newspapers, including one foreign language paper. Seven 
periodical indexing and bibliographical services are regularly 

A full-time, professionally trained librarian is in charge of the 
library and is assisted by two assistant librarians and additional 
student help as needed. This staff is available to help in locating 
desired material, in the preparation of bibliographies, or for other 
forms of reference service. 

In addition to the usual reading material, the library is building 
a collection of recordings for the use of various departments and of 
the student body. Included are not only musical records, but also 
a number of literary or historical records and albums. Special 
periods are set aside for those who are interested to listen to 
recorded programs in the library. 

The James V. Brown Library is within two squares of the 
college campus, and is one of the finest Public Libraries in the state. 
Its books are carefully distributed over the several fields of Liter- 
ature, Religion, Economics, Sociology, Natural Sciences and other 
liberal arts subjects. The reading rooms are ample and its large 
collection of books is freely open to all students of the college. 


Audio-visual aids in instruction are relatively new, but the idea 
is growing more important. Progressive educational institutions 
are not ignoring the potentialities of visual and auditory methods, 
and with this in view, Lycoming is promoting an active program to 


incorporate audio-visual devices for more purposeful and effective 
instruction. Special audio-visual equipment available includes a 
sound, 16 mm., moving-picture projector, one two-by-two slide pro- 
jector, one combination two-by-two slide and 35 mm. filmstrip pro- 
jector, three combination radio and record machines, a wire re- 
corder, and two public address systems. 

The library is building a collection of films, filmstrips, and 
records, which will be used in connection with classes, special 
groups on the campus, and for the pleasure and relaxation of 

A special room is equipped to carry on the audio-visual program 
and periods are designated for all groups and classes who desire 
to participate. 




The college recognizes the need for giving the freshmen assist- 
ance 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 one week 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 freshmen 
adjustment are discussed and directions for study, the use of the 
library, and other instructional aids are given. Provision is also 
made for recreation and a wholesome social life. 


While Lycoming College is a Methodist educational Institution, 
it is non-sectarian. At least four religious denominations are rep- 
resented on its Board of Directors. A check of the faculty and 
student body indicates membership in 15 different denominations 
including Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish. Each student is en- 
couraged to be loyal to the church of his choice. 

The College realizes the importance of making religion a living 
part of the educational experiences of the student. Therefore, a 
systematic study of the Bible is required (optional with non-Prot- 
estants), and all students are required to attend college chapel 
services. Students attend the Sunday morning services at churches 
in the city. 

The John Wesley Club is composed of students preparing for 
the ministry or other forms of religious work. Through regular 
meetings and deputation teams, they gain valuable training and 
experience in religious work. 

The Student Christian Association, membership open to all 
undergraduates on the campus, meets weekly at Rich Hall. 


Speakers include many prominent civic leaders, faculty members, 
and national figures. This group has joint meetings with similar 
organizations on other college campuses. 

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, and the head of this 
department is also the college pastor. He gives a large portion of 
his time to promoting a helpful religious atmosphere at the institu- 
tion and in aiding students to solve successfully personal problems 
which arise while they are on the campus. 


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 frequent talks by instructors, do much 
to develop poise and social ease. Persons of prominence are 
brought to the school for talks and lectures, and excellent talent is 
provided by community organizations which bring the best artistic 
talent to the city. 


It is aimed to develop in each student a sense of loyalty and 
responsibility to good citizenship. To this end there is established 
a Student Government representing the entire student body with 
the purpose of promoting the general welfare of the college and to 
provide a more perfect understanding between students and admin- 

Certain phases of dormitory life are supervised and regulated 
by a student dormitory government. 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 overall supervisory influence on 
dormitory life. 

It is understood that students entering Lycoming do so with the 
intention of making an honest effort to do satisfactory work in every 


respect. Where 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. 


CAMPUS GROUPS. In addition to the John Wesley Club, Stu- 
dent Christian Association, and the Student Government there are 
many and varied organizations on the campus which aim to 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 Rela- 
tions Club, which is the campus focus for discussion of world 
affairs; The French Club, The Spanish Club, and The German 
Club, which supplement class work by aiding students to understand 
the folklore of the various peoples and to facilitate ease of conver- 
sation in the language; The Camera Club, which provides students 
opportunity for developing a lifelong hobby; The Dramatic Club, 
which affords opportunity for those interested in acting and direct- 
ing plays ; The Ski Club, which brings together a group of enthus- 
iasts for winter sports; The Forensic Society organized for the 
purpose of enabling students to gain experience in debate. 

COLLEGE PUBLICATIONS. There are three college publica- 
tions: "The Lycoming Courier" is the official student paper, de- 
voted to local interests of the student body, reporting current 
campus events; and "The Dart," college year book, published in 
June and presenting a record of student life during the current 
academic year. The staff of both publications is composed of 
students interested in gaining more knowedge and experience in 
some line of journalistic endeavor. The "Alumni Bulletin," issued 
six times a year, keeps the alumni posted on current happenings at 
the college. 

MUSIC. The Music Department offers several organizations for 
students interested in music. A College Choir, Men's Glee Club, 
and Women's Glee Club are open to all students desiring to join. 
The Lycoming Singers, Women's Quartette, Men's Quartette, and 
an A Cappella Choir are formed of selected voices and represent the 
college at many events. A String Ensemble gives instrument 


players an opportunity to enjoy the fellowship of good music to- 
gether. In addition, are the College Band and Symphony Or- 
chestra, which meet several times each week for practice and furnish 
the college with music for many entertainments, athletic events, and 
celebrations throughout the year. 

FRATERNITIES. Four fraternities on the campus provide a 
means of bringing to men students the advantages of a fraternal 
organization. The social life of the college is carefully planned by 
both administrative and student government to be helpful to the 
individual student in his social world. 


INTERCOLLEGIATE SPORTS. The college offers an attrac- 
tive program of intercollegiate athletics. Varsity teams represent 
the college in competition with other four year institutions in such 
sports as football, basketball, swimming, and tennis. Lycoming is 
a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Basketball. 

RECREATION. An extensive program of intramural athletics 
affords opportunity for every student not a member of a varsity 
team to participate in one or more sports. These are run in con- 
nection with the required physical education program. Basic 
instruction in game techniques is given in physical education class 
and the intramural program affords opportunity for individual and 
team competition. Some of these sports are tennis, swimming, 
basketball, handball, badminton, bowling, volleyball, softball, and 
table tennis for both women and men; rhythmical activities, field 
hockey and archery, for women; boxing, touch football, and water 
polo for men. 

In addition to the athletic recreation program, various organiza- 
tions on the campus, the lecture series, the Record Session, motion 
pictures, and numerous social affairs, offer programs of interest. 

STUDENT INSURANCE. By a special group plan, our students 
are able to secure accident insurance covering medical and hospital 
expenses for injuries received on the campus. The limit of cov- 
erage for women is $500.00 and for men $250.00. All students are 
advised to carry this protection. 


PHYSICAL EXAMINATION. A physical examination of all 
students is required. This examination is conducted by the stu- 
dent's own physician and a report made on a standard form sup- 
plied by the college. This report is presented on Registration Day. 

INFIRMARY SERVICE. The infirmary fee, covered by the 
over-all activities fee, includes the following medical service: The 
college nurse holds infirmary hours each day, except Sunday, that 
the college dormitories are open, and 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, eases of serious chronic disorder, or other extraordinary 

Each student is entitled to three days of infirmary service per 
school year, including routine nursing and ordinary medicines. 
There will be a charge of $2.00 per day for each additional day or 
fraction thereof beyond the alloted days. 

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 


Living quarters are provided on the campus for 140 women and 
215 men. Efforts are made each year to keep the dormitories in 
repair so that they constitute comfortable and attractive homes for 
the students concerned. 

Rooms at Lycoming are furnished as follows: Desk, bureau, 
chair, single bed, mattress, and pillow are provided. Students must 
bring their own bed linen, blankets, and study lamps with them. 

The students will make arrangements for their own 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. 



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. 


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

Money and valuables should be placed in the school safe; the 
college will not assume responsibility unless this is done. 

No intoxicants or drinking of intoxicants is permitted. 

Permission to maintain automobiles on the campus must be 
obtained from the administration. 

No firearms are permitted on the campus. , 




Complete application forms for admission to Lycoming may be 
obtained from the Director of Admissions. Included with these are 
directions for making application. 

A registration fee of $10.00 is required with each application. 
This fee is refunded in case the application is rejected, and is 
returned to veterans of World War II entered under Public Law 
346 or 16 at the time of the second payment period. 

Applicants who are accepted will receive a statement evaluating 
their high school credits and granting proper classification. Those 
rejected will be notified. 


A candidate for admission must be of good moral character and 
show evidence of ability and preparation to pursue the program of 
his choice at Lycoming. The usual evidence of preparation is a 
certificate showing satisfactory completion of 15 units of high school 
work or its equivalent as follows :

* A letter of recommendation from the applicant's private teacher and/or 
High School Music Supervisor should accompany the application. 


Applicants ranking in the upper three-fifths of their high school 
class or presenting a certificate showing all grades of college cer- 
tificate value may be admitted without examination. 

Candidates for admission who do not meet the above require- 
ments for admission may be admitted by making a satisfactory score 
on an aptitude test. 


While the addition of the final two years of liberal arts work 
now make possible the awarding of a Bachelor of Arts Degree and 
Bachelor of Science Degree, students are stUl able to enroll at 
Lycoming College in the Junior College Division. 

Offerings in this Division are: Two-year terminal courses in 
Secretarial Science, Medical Secretarial, Art and Music ; and a 
three-year terminal course in Laboratory Technology. Upon sat- 
isfactory completion of these courses a certificate is awarded at the 
graduation exercises. Also, students may register for liberal arts 
work for transfer to another institution for the purpose either of 
obtaining advanced credit on an undergraduate level, or for ful- 
filling certain undergraduate requirements for entrance to a pro- 
fessional field. 

Students desiring to enter the Junior College Division must 
make their plans known at the time application for admittance is 
made. While guidance will be available upon request for those 
who wish to transfer to other institutions, it will be the sole respon- 
sibility of the student to make certain that he meets the entrance 
requirements of that institution. 

During the past nineteen years students graduating in the 
Junior College have been accepted with full credit at the better 
colleges and universities throughout the United States. However, 
because of the crowded conditions in institutions of higher learn- 
ing, it is not possible for Lycoming to assure those in the Junior 
College Division that they can be accepted by another institution at 
any stage of their undergraduate preparation. 



An advantage of a small college is the rich experience gained by 
students and faculty knowing each other. In addition to this val- 
uable personal relationship, which offers opportunity for students 
to discuss various problems with their instructors, Lycoming is 
proud to annpunce that a well-rounded guidance program is avail- 
able to its students. Under the direction of the Dean of the college, 
this program includes areas as represented by the College Pastor, 
Dean of Men and Dean of Women, and the Guidance Director with 
his group of faculty advisers. The program begins prior to the 
student's entrance to a course of study when there is 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 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 records, aptitude and psy- 
chological examination scores, and various interviews, an evaluation 
of the student can be formed. 

Additional information is added to this as the student progresses 
through his college life. His welfare is the sole purpose of the 
guidance program, and it stands ready to serve him whether it be 
counseling to aid him make an intelligent decision regarding his 
vocational choice, or to solve some important personal problem. 


A placement service for the students and alumni of the college 
was begun in September, 1948. 

The service is designed to aid the graduate in obtaining positions 
which make use of college training. 

The placement office has made many valuable contacts with 
employers throughout the United States. Locally, the service has 
been well accepted. 

The service is designed as the final step in the total college 
guidance program. The office acts as the intermediary between 
employer and graduate in all fields of college activity. 



Lycoming is fully approved for the educational program for 
Veterans under Federal Public Laws 346 and 16. 


A student may be admitted to Lycoming with advanced standing 
provided he has earned satisfactory credit at an approved college. 
Application for advanced standing must be supported by an honor- 
able dismissal and an official transcript of the college previously 

Some academic credit may be allowed for training courses and 
educational experiences in the armed services according to the 
general pattern recommended by "A Guide to the Evaluation of 
Educational Experiences in the Armed Services" issued by the 
American Council on Education, provided such courses or experi- 
ences are appropriately related to a college of liberal arts. 


Freshman: See requirements for admission. 

Sophomore: Not less than 24 semester hours and 21 quality points. 

Junior: Not less than 54 semester hours and 48 quality points. 

Senior : Not less than 86 semester hours and 90 quality points, and 
a reasonable chance of completing all requirements for grad- 

Unclassified: Students who do not wish to enter upon a regular 
course of study may pursue studies offered for which their 
previous training, in the opinion of the college, fits them. 
Only a limited number of unclassified students are accepted. 
Such students are not admitted to candidacy for a degree. 


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 letter system of grading with the corresponding quality 
points is used. "A" indicates work of the highest excellence, show- 


ing a superior grasp of the content, as well as independent and 
creative thinking in the subject, and represents a numerical grade 
between 90 and 100. "B" signifies better than average achieve- 
ment wherein the student reveals insight and ability, and represents 
a numerical grade between 80 and 89. "C" is given for satisfactory 
achievement on the college level when the work of the course has 
been conscientious and has shown no considerable deficiency in 
either quality or quantity, and represents a numerical grade between 
70 and 79. "D" indicates that the work of the course has met the 
minimum essentials, and represents a numerical grade of 60 to 69. 
"F" is failure and the work of the course must be satisfactorily 
repeated before any credit can be obtained, and represents numer- 
ical grades below 60. 

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


The normal load for students is from twelve to fifteen hours of 
academic work and one hour of physical education per semester. 


Students who wish to carry in excess of the normal load are 
charged $12.50 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. 


Students whose grade-point average falls between ,00 and .5 are 
placed on probation. Students on probation must maintain an 
average of 1.0 in fifteen hours with fifteen quality points for the 
semester, to be removed from probation. 


Freshmen who fail to maintain an average of at least .00 the 
first semester will 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. 


The program at Lycoming is built on the assumption that there 
is value in class and chapel attendance for all students. Therefore, 
all students are expected to attend all classes 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. 


Upon graduation a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science 
Degree is awarded. This is in accord with the objective of provid- 
ing a background of knowledge in the humanities, social studies, 
and sciences. It is assumed that an intelligent understanding of 
the past enables one better to appreciate the present and to plan 
more ably for the future. Accordingly, certain required courses 
are listed for these areas. In addition a student should have 
selected, by the end of his sophomore year, some field of concen- 
tration in which he wishes to specialize. 

The Arts and Science program is basic to the professions of 
Medicine, Theology, Teaching, Law, Dentistry, and is desirable in 
Engineering Science, Pharmacy, Nursing, and Veterinary. The 
requirements for graduation at Lycoming permit these pre-requisite 

Students satisfactorily completing terminal courses in Secre- 
tarial Science, Medical Secretary, and Laboratory Technician, will 
be graduated, but no degree is awarded.

Lycoming is anxious to aid her students to prepare for living a 
normal, well-adjusted life, as well as preparing them for a variety 
of careers. The growing belief in professional schools that the 
best preliminary training is a broad cultural education has added 
new emphasis to the type of program now offered by Lycoming. 
This program offers a general education, conceded as necessary to a 
well-rounded individual living in today's ever smaller world, and 
yet is equipped to add more specialized courses so that a student 
looking forward to a particular career may specialize in the field 
of his vocational interest. 

Choosing one's life work is an important and serious matter. 
In this selection, Lycoming, as a liberal arts college, plays an im- 
portant role. While some students enter college with a well-defined 
aim, many others are far from settled in their minds as to their own 
particular vocation. The first two years of a liberal arts course 
give the student a glimpse into many fields and thus by the start of 
his third or Junior year, the student with this background and with 
the advice of the faculty, usually is well prepared to indicate his 
field of specialization. 

The following pages contain some of the programs offered at 
Lycoming. Others are available upon sufficient demand. It is 
recommended, therefore, that the student discuss his proposed plan 
with the Director of Admissions, or, if a returning student, with the 
Dean of the Collegfe.

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
