GENERAL INFORMATION 



THE COLLEGE 

Lycoming College is a liberal arts institution. It is co-educa- 
tional and provides facilities for both day and boarding students. 
The four year program offers courses of study leading to Bachelor 
of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees. In addition, certain two- 
year terminal programs are available. 



LOCATION 

The college is located near the center of the city of Williams- 
port, Pennsylvania, on a slight eminence, which causes the institu- 
tion to be affectionately referred to as "The College Upon the Hill- 
top." Its stately elms, maples, and numerous shrubs form an attrac- 
tive setting for the imposing buildings. 

Williamsport itself is known as "The Queen City of the West 
Branch of the Susquehanna River," on the famed Susquehanna 
Trail, midway between Buffalo, New York, and Washington, D. C. 
It is famed for its picturesque scenery, its beautifiil homes, and the 
culture and kindness of its people. The Pennsylvania and Read- 
ing railroads, with their fast trains, and the Lakes-to-Sea and the 
Greyhound busses put it within, two hours of Harrisburg, four and 
a half hours of Philadelphia, and six hours of Pittsburgh and New 
York. Capital, TWA, and American Airlines place the time at 
forty minutes to Harrisburg, an hour and ten minutes to Philadel- 
phia, one hour and fifteen minutes to New York, and about three 
hours to Boston. 

HISTORY 

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 

15 



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 prepara- 
tory field and continued in that field until 1929. From that date 
until June, 1947, it operated 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 Directors, at a special meeting January, 1947, author- 
ized and set in motion plans to adopt a four year college program. 
The college preparatory department was discontinued June, 1948. 
In the same year, after approval of the Pennsylvania Department 
of Education, the charter was amended to include the power to 
grant Baccalaureate Degrees. The name of the institution was 
then officially changed to Lycoming College. Lycoming is an Indian 
name closely associated with this region from early colonial days. 

AIM 

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 pre- 

16 



The Gymnasium 



paratory to specialization in law, medicine, dentistry, engineering, 
and business, 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 Sec- 
retarial Science. 

BUILDINGS 

OLD MAIN. The Main Building is an imposing structure of 
brick occupying the central part of the campus. In this building 
are administrative and faculty offices, class rooms, men's day room, 
lounge, and dormitories for men. There are hardwood floors through- 
out. 

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 furnished 
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- 
tories. 

FRANKLIN STREET HALL. A large private home has been 
converted into dormitory and living quarters, arranged to accom- 
modate approximately twenty men. It is currently occupied by 
the colony of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. 

CLARKE MEMORIAL. This building was made possible by the 
bequest of Miss Martha B. Clarke, of the class of 1862, as a 
memorial to her brothers and herself. It is designed in colonial 
style, is of fireproof construction, and houses the chapel and the 
dining hall. The chapel which seats six hundred, has excellent 
acoustics, provides facilities for devotional services, assemblies, 
dramatics, concerts, and lectures. 

17 



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. On the north the open campus extends to Washington 
Boulevard. 

JOHN W. LONG LIBRARY. The John W. Long Library was 
dedicated and formally opened October 20, 1951. Constructed 
of brick in Georgian Colonial style, this imposing building is 
located on the east side of the campus directly across the athletic 
field from Rich Hall. The interior is so designed that floor space 
is adaptable to various modifications in arrangement. The library 
has space for 100,000 volumes and seats 250 students. It is 
excellently equipped throughout and is illuminated by lights of 
the newest design which are located in ceiling panels. 

The large reading room, periodical and reference rooms, offices, 
typing room, and beautifully furnished recreational reading room 
are located on the first floor. On the ground floor is a faculty 
reading room. Two audio-visual rooms, one to accommodate sev- 
enty-five students and one for twenty students, with a film pro- 
jection booth and storage room between, are located on the second 
floor. They are equipped with film projectors for showing films, 
filmstrips, slides, and other visual material. Two rooms designed 
for listening to records and equipped with turntables for group 
and individual listening are also on the second floor. The rare book 
and historical data room, seminar rooms, and individual study and 
typing rooms occupy one wing of this floor. 

There are now more than 23,500 volumes in the library, and 
this number is being augmented rapidly. An excellent list of 
reference works has been provided. A group of books for general 
reading has also been included in order to stimulate student interest 
in books not directly related to specific courses. 

The library currently subscribes to 260 periodicals which cover 
all subject fields offered by the college; ten newspapers, including 

18 



three in foreign languages ; and seven periodical indexing and 
bibliographical services. 

Literary and foreign language records and albums, as well as 
musical recordings, are included in the record collection which is in 
the library for the use of various departments and the students. 

A full-time professionally trained librarian, three assistant 
librarians, and a secretary to the librarian are in charge of the 
library. Student assistants are employed as needed. This staff 
is available to help in locating reference material and in preparing 
bibliographies. 

BRADLEY HALL. Bradley Hall, a four story building, is con- 
structed of red brick, and contains the Dramatic Studio, the Lundy 
Radio Broadcasting Studio, the Business Administration offices and 
one floor of men's dormitories. 

MEMORIAL HALL. Memorial Hall was dedicated on Novem- 
ber 1, 1947. It is a three-story building and has floor space of 8,000 
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. 

FINE ARTS. The Fine Arts building is located at the northern 
end of the campus. Three large studios and several smaller prac- 
tice rooms on the first floor are occupied by the Music Department. 
The Art Department is located on the second floor and has the 
advantage of northern lighting. There also are private studios 
and conference rooms for members of the faculty. The building is 
well equipped and attractively furnished throughout. 

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. 

19 



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

The gymnasium floor proper is 90 by 65 feet with a stage at the 
easterly end. The main floor can readily be converted into an 
auditorium suitable for recitals or more pretentious 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 and other intramural sports 
with bleachers which accommodate 1,000 people. 

THE PRESIDENT'S HOME. The architectural style of the 
President's Home harmonizes with the Fine Arts building and with 
it forms an imposing unit at the northwest corner of the campus. 

AUDIO-VISUAL SERVICES 

Special audio-visual equipment which is available includes a 
16 mm. sound moving picture projector, a silent projector, one 
two-by-two slide projector, one combination two-by-two slide and 
35 mm. filmstrip projector, a radio, a wire recorder, two public 
address systems, a micro-film reader, and four turntables for records. 
Connected with two turntables are ear-phones which makes it 
possible for several students to listen to different records at the 
same time without disturbing one another. 

A collection of films, filmstrips, and records is being built which 
will be used in connection with classes, special groups on the 
campus, and for the pleasure and relaxation of students. One-half 
of the second floor of the new John W. Long Library is equipped 
to carry on the audio-visual program. 

Through the generosity of the Lundy Construction Company, 
a Radio Studio has been installed on the ground floor of Bradley 
Hall where students may be trained in radio speech, announcing, 
and script writing. The equipment is linked with the local radio 
station, WRAK, an NBC affiliate.

FINANCIAL 
INFORMATION 



GENERAL 

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 reason- 
able 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, a non- 
profit institution, the tuition fee which each student pays represents 
approximately three-fourths of the total instruction cost. Tuition 
is kept at the lowest possible minimum consistent with adequate 
facilities and competent instruction. 

Tuition at Lycoming is $200.00 per semester, plus certain fees 
which are listed on the following pages. The present cost of Room 
and Board per semester is $275.00 for women and $260.00 for men. 
(The academic year comprises two semesters of approximately six- 
teen weeks each.) 

Regularly enrolled students carrying a normal schedule of from 
12 to 15 hours of class or laboratory pay the full tuition charge.

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.

dents leaving college prior to the ending of a semester will not be entitled 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 fiixed 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 second week of 
either semester will not justify any claim for refund of tuition charges. 
Written permission to drop the subject must be obtained from the Admis- 
sions Office. No refund wiU be made to those students who are asked to 
withdraw from college. 

Other fees cannot be refunded for any reason whatever.

certification of withdrawal in good standing will be granted to any student 
until a satisfactory settlement of all obligations has been made.

STUDENT LIFE 



PROVISION FOR FRESHMEN 

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 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 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. 

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 fifteen 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. Courses in Religion (optional with 
non-Protestants) include a systematic study of the Bible, Compara- 
tive Religions, and other pertinent fields. Religious emphasis week 
brings to the college campus outstanding religious leaders. Many 
of the chapel and assembly programs are religious in nature. The 
Student Christian Association, membership open to all undergradu- 
ates on the campus, meets weekly at Rich Hall. Speakers include 

83 



many prominent civic leaders, faculty members, and national fig- 
ures. This group sponsors many and varied activities which aim 
to promote fellowship and spiritual life among the faculty and 
students. 

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 ex- 
perience in religious work. 

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. The department 
head gives a large portion of his time to promoting a helpful relig- 
ious atmosphere at the institution and to aiding students toward 
successful solution of personal problems which arise while they are 
on the campus. 

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 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 outstanding 
artists to the city. 

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

The college aims 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 to provide a more perfect 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 

34* 



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. 

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. 

STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

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 provide stu- 
dents with an interesting and wholesome social life. These are 
organized and conducted by the students in cooperation with the 
faculty. Some of these are a.s follows: The International Rela- 
tions Club, which is the campus focus for discussion of world 
affairs ; the Foreign Language Club, which supplements class work 
by aiding students to understand the folklore of the various peoples 
and facilitates ease of conversation in the language; The Lycoming 
College Players which affords opportunity for acting and directing 
plays as demonstration of the work in the dramatic courses of the 
curriculum; The Psychology Club, which schedules lectures, dis- 
cussions, and movies in this field; the Varsity Club, which is com- 
posed of lettermen, promotes college spirit in sports. 

COLLEGE PUBLICATIONS. There are four college publica- 
tions. The Lycoming Courier is the official student paper, de- 
voted 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 publications are composed of 
students interested in gaining more knowledge and experience in 
journalism and business practises. The Alumni Bulletin, issued 
six times a year, keeps the alumni posted on current happenings at 
the college and on alumni activities. The Guidepost, published 
by the Student Government, is a student handbook of regulations 
and miscellaneous information which is distributed during the first 
week of school. 

35 



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 Orches- 
tra, 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. Five Greek letter groups on the campus pro- 
vide a means of bringing to men students the advantages of a 
fraternal organization. They include the Psi colony of Kappa 
Delta Rho, Lambda Chi Alpha colony, and the Nu chapter of 
Alpha Gamma Upsilon, as well as two locals, Zeta Delta Kappa 
and Zeta Tau Beta, a professional business fraternity. 

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

RECREATION AND HEALTH 

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 basketball, baseball, 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. 

36 



In addition to the athletic recreation program, various organiza- 
tions on the campus, the Lecture Series, motion pictures, and numer- 
ous 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. Reimbursement will 
be made up to $500.00 for each accident. 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 each year made on a standard 
form supplied by the College. This report is presented on Regis- 
tration Day to a faculty member from the Physical Education 
department. 

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 extraordinary 
situations.

RESIDENT STUDENT LIFE 

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

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.

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

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 entrance who do not meet the above require- 
ments for admission may be accepted upon making a satisfactory 
score on an aptitude test. 

TERMINAL EDUCATION 

In addition to programs leading to the Baccalaureate Degree, 
Lycoming offers certain two-year terminal courses in Art, Music, 
Medical Secretarial, Laboratory Technology and Secretarial Science. 
Upon satisfactory completion of these courses a certificate is 
awarded at the graduation exercises. 

GUIDANCE 

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 affords students the opportunity 
to discuss various problems with their instructors, Lycoming is 
proud to announce 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 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 admis- 
sion. 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 records, aptitude and 
psychological examination scores, and various interviews, an evalu- 
ation of the student can be formed. 

Additional information is obtained as the student progresses 
through his college life. His welfare is the .sole purpose of the 

40 



guidance program, which stands ready to help him make an intelli- 
gent decision regarding his vocational choice and solve important 
personal problems. 

SUPERVISION FOR STUDENT PASTORS 

In cooperation with the Department of Town and Country Work 
of the General Board of Home Mission and Church Extension and 
with the Town and Country Commission of the Central Pennsyl- 
vania Conference of the Methodist Church, a Director of Rural 
Training was appointed June 1, 1950. The Director, Assistant 
Professor of Sociology, will teach courses in rural sociology, conduct 
a weekly seminar for student pastors, supervise accepted student 
supply pastors of the Conference in the work of their parishes, be 
available for counseling ministerial students, and assist in other 
rural church work. Projects such as student deputation teams, 
demonstration parishes, church and community surveys, and work- 
shops will give students practical experience and professional guid- 
ance in their choice of and preparation for their vocation. Through 
such projects students will represent the College and will make a 
contribution to the church and community of town and country areas. 

PLACEMENT SERVICE 

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. 

PROVISION FOR VETERANS 

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

41 



ADVANCED STANDING 

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 
attended. A student admitted with advance standing must satisfy 
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 
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. 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Freshman: See requirements for admission. 

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

Junior: Not fewer than 54 semester hours and 48 quality points. 
Senior: Not fewer than 86 semester hours and 90 quality points, 

and a reasonable chance of completing all requirements for 

graduation. 

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. 

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 

42 



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, "-i" is failure. Work 
in the course must be repeated satisfactorily before any credit can 
be obtained. 

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. 

NORMAL STUDENT LOAD 

The normal load per semester for students is from twelve to 
fifteen hours of academic work, one-half hour of assembly and 
chapel, and one hour of physical education during the first two years. 

OVER LOAD 

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 or has an average below 2.0 and receives 
the written permission of a special committee. 

PROBATION 

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 a 
semester, to be removed from probation. 

DISMISSAL 

Freshmen who fail to maintain an average of at least .00 the 
first semester may be asked to withdraw from the College. The 

43 



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. 

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 v^ith these regulations rests with 
the student. 

GRADUATION 

The College offers courses of study leading to the degrees of 
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. For either degree the 
minimum requirement is the completion of 120 academic hours plus 
one hour credit of physical education for four semesters, and one 
half hour credit of assembly and chapel for each fall and spring 
semester that the candidate is in attendance at Lycoming College. 
In addition the candidate must possess at least 120 academic quality 
points (physical education and assembly and chapel carry no quality 
points) on the basis of: "3" — 3 points per credit hour; "2" — 2 
points per credit hour; "1" — 1 point per credit hour; "0" — points 
per credit hour. The work of the final year is to be taken at this 
college.

PROGRAMS FOR STUDY 



Lycoming is anxious to aid her students to prepare for living a 
normal, well-adjusted life, as well as to prepare 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 glimpses into many fields and thus by the beginning 
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 his 
adviser.

Students select prescribed courses and electives to complete degree 
requirements as outlined in the previous section. Special curricula are 
listed on following pages.

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 a liberal arts program and requiring 
certain specific subjects in preparation for medical school.
