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 college buildings. 

Williamsport itself is known as "The Queen City of the West 
Branch of the Susquehanna River," and is on the famed Susque- 
hanna Trail, midway between Buffalo, New York, and Washington, 
D. C. It is famed for its picturesque scenery, its beautiful homes, 
and the culture and kindness of its people. The Pennsylvania rail- 
road, with its 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. Cap- 
ital, TWA, and Allegheny Airlines place the time at forty minutes to 
Harrisburg, an hour and ten minutes to Philadelphia, one hour and 
fifteen minutes to New York, and about three hours to Boston. 
Highway routes 14, 15, and 220 pass through the city. 

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 a non-profit 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- 
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, Medical Technology, Medical Secretarial, Music, and Secre- 
tarial 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. 

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 nurse's 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 Iota Beta Zeta chapter 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, 1961. 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 projec- 
tion 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 29,000 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. 

There are 310 albums of literary, foreign language, dictation, 
social science, and musical recordings. This record collection 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 
classrooms, 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 vrith 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. 

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 audi- 
torium 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 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 tape recorder, a wire recorder, two public address systems, a 
micro-film reader, a micro-card reader, and four turntables for rec- 
ords. 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, micro films, micro cards, and 
records is being built which is being 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 $225.00 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.) If a student requests to use a double room as a 
single room, he will be charged 50% more than regular rates. 

Regularly enrolled students carrying a normal schedule of from 
13 to 15 hours of class or laboratory pay the full tuition charge. 
Those students taking fewer than 1,3 hours of work per semester, 
or fewer than 6 hours of work per semester in the summer session, 
are charged $15.00 per credit hour. Additional credits beyond 
the normal schedule of 15 hours are charged at the rate of $16,00 
for each semester hour credit. Because of the individual attention 
needed, instruction in music and art is charged on a different basis, 
as is indicated on page 22. 

APPLICATION FEE AND DEPOSIT 
Every student who desires admission is required to send a 
registration fee of $10.00 with the application. This payment 
partially covers administrative costs of handling the application. 
The fee is not refundable. 

21 



After a resident student is notified that he has been accepted 
for admission by the college, he must send a payment of $35.00 to 
the Director of Admissions. This payment is applied against the 
general charges of the semester and serves as a room reservation 
deposit. It will not be refunded unless notice is received at least 
30 days prior to the beginning of the semester that the student will 
be unable to attend. 

In order to reserve the room selected by a returning student, 
the student must have a room deposit of $25.00 paid on or before 
August 1, 1954. This amount will be applicable to the general 
charges of the semester. 

BOOKS AND SUPPLIES 

A modern book and supply store is conveniently located on the 
campus. Books and supplies are purchased by the individual stu- 
dent. The estimated cost is approximately $50.00 per year, but 
will vary somewhat in accordance with the course of study which 
the student is pursuing. Terms are cash. The bookstore is open 
registration day and daily thereafter. 

ART AND MUSIC 

Tuition for art and music majors is higher than 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 $40.00 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 $50.00 
for six class periods per week (three credit hours).

Tuition Plan, Incorporated, for the monthly payment of college fees. Addi- 
tional information concerning partial payments may be obtained from the 
President or Treasurer. 



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. Consequently, stu- 
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 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 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 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 settled. 

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

DAMAGE CHARGES 

Wherever possible, damage to dormitory property will be 
charged to the person or persons directly 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 cost of repairs 
will be charged. 

24 



GUESTS 

Parents or guardians visiting students are the guests of the College for 
the first twenty-four hours. Other guests may be entertained if their stu- 
dent hosts pay the regular rates for their entertainment. In all instances, 
the Business OfBce should be notified in advance of expected guests, whether 
parents or other friends, and payment should be made at that time. Faculty 
and students remaining at the College during vacations will be charged in

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

No discount is allowed on Music and Art, whether taken as extra-sub- 
jects 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 the 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 recom- 
mendation of the church to which the applicant belongs are essential to a 
loan. Each borrower must sign an interest-bearing promissory note. 

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

The income from $10,000.00, from the Mr. and Mrs. Robert F. Rich Loan

borrower must sign an interest-bearing promissory note. The recipients

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 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 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. Courses in Religion (optional with 
non-Protestants who may substitute a course in Philosophy) include 
a systematic study of the Bible. 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 undergraduates on 
the campus, meets weekly at Rich Hall. Speakers include many 
prominent civic leaders, faculty members, and national figures. This 
group sponsors many and varied activities which aim to promote fel- 
lowship and spiritual life among the faculty and students. 

33 



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 
a 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 functiens. 
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 of providing 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 
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. 

STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

CAMPUS GROUPS. In addition to the John Wesley Club, Stu- 
dent Christian Association, and the Student Government, there are 

34 



varied organizations on the campus which provide students with an 
interesting and wholesome social life. These are organized and con- 
ducted 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 Foreign Language 
Club, which supplements class work by aiding students to under- 
stand the folklore of the various peoples and facilitates ease of con- 
versation 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 Varsity 
Club, which is composed of lettermen, promotes college spirit in 
sports; the Pre-Medical Society, which has discussions and hears 
lectures on various medical data ; some religious groups, the Canter- 
bury Club, the Catholic Club, and the Methodist Student Movement. 

COLLEGE PUBLICATIONS. There are four college publica- 
tions. 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 publications are composed of students 
interested in gaining more knowledge and experience in journalism 
and business practices. 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. 

MUSIC. The Music Department offers several organizations for 
students interested in music. A College Choir and the Men's Glee 
Club are open to all students desiring to join. The Lycoming Sing- 
ers, Men's Quartette, and an A Cappella Choir are formed of select- 
ed voices and represent the college at many events. A String En- 
semble gives instrument players an opportunity to enjoy the fellow- 
ship of good music together. In addition, there are the College 
Band and Symphony Orchestra, which meet several times each 
week for practice. These furnish the college with music for many 
entertainments, athletic events, and celebrations throughout the year, 

35 



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 Chapter of Kappa 
Delta Rho, Beta Lambda Chapter of Sigma Pi, Iota Beta Zeta 
Chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha, a colony of Theta Chi, and the Nu 
Chapter of Alpha Gamma Upsilon. 

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 football, basketball, baseball, and tennis. Lycoming is a 
member of the Middle Atlantic Athletic Conference and the Nation- 
al Collegiate Athletic Association. 

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 in- 
struction 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 organi- 
zations on the campus, the Lecture Series, motion pictures, and 
numerous social affairs offer programs of interest. 

STUDENT INSURANCE. By a special group plan, our students 
are able to secure accident and sickness insurance covering medical 
and hospital expenses whether at home or at college during one 
academic year. Reimbursement will be made up to $500.00 for each 
incident. 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. 

37 



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 extraor- 
dinary situation. 

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 allotted 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 
illnesses. 

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 Admis- 
sions and the candidate for admission. These interviews are suf- 
ficient 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 evaluation 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 

38 



guidance program, which stands ready to help him make an intelli- 
gent decision regarding his vocational choice and 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 splendid opportunities for visits, 
tours, and career conferences. They also afford the student body a 
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. Normally 
the demand exceeds the supply of available workers. 

PROVISION FOR VETERANS 

Lycoming is fully approved for the educational program for 
Veterans under Federal Public Laws 346, 16, 650, and 894. 

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. 

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

The students will make their own arrangements for laundry ser- 
vice. A local laundry has a representative on campus for the con- 

39 



venience of all boarding students. It is recommended that the 
student bring a minimum of six sheets (single bed), three pillow 
eases, 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- 
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. 

Permission to maintain automobiles on the campus must be 
obtained from the administration. License numbers must be record- 
ed during registration. 

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.

Lycoming offers certain two-year terminal courses in Art, Music, 
Medical Secretarial, Medical Technology and Secretarial Science. 
Upon satisfactory completion of these courses, the student is award- 
ed a certificate at the graduation exercises. 

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 advanced 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. 
Junior: Not fewer than 54 semester hours. 

Senior: Not fewer than 86 semester hours and a reasonable chance 
of completing all requirements for graduation. 

42 



Unclassified: Students who do not wish to enter upon a regular 
course of study may pursue studies offered for which their 
previous trainings 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 
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 £or 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 p>er 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 and two classes per week of physical 
education during the first two years. 

OVER LOAD 

Students who wish to carry in excess of the normal load are 
charged $15.00 per credit hour. A schedule of more than seventeen 

43 



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 .6 are 
placed on probation. Students on probation must maintain an 
average of 1.0 for a normal load for a semester, or during a summer 
to be removed from probation. 

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 and Standards Committee he does not meet all 
the requirements 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. 

44 



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. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION 

The college offers courses of study leading to the degrees of 
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. For either degree the 
minimum requirements are: 

120 academic hours, including required courses and one major of 
at least 24 hours. 

120 or more academic 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.

45 



PROGRAMS FOR STUDY 



Lycoming is anxious to aid its 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 Registrar, or, if a returning student, with his adviser.

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.

MUSIC 

The two-year Music Course is open to those who are regularly enrolled 
at Lycoming College. Other students attending Lycoming who are not 
registered in the Music Course or the Music Major, A. B. degree curricu- 
lum, may enroll for music courses with the consent of the Dean of the 
College and the Department Chairman. 

Musical excellence in both the fields of fine technical musicianship and 
artistic performance is sought in every branch of musical work at Lycom- 
ing. Special attention is called to the advantages of the thorough-gaing 
fundamental training afforded students who desire to matriculate in a 
regular professional school of music. Class and public recitals are held 
frequently to afford students the opportunity to achieve poise in per- 
formance. Instrumental and vocal ensemble work hold an important place 
in the curriculum and are therefore required. Class sessions and private 
lessons are taught in conformity to the college calendar, and absences are 
dealt with in accordance with the college policy.
