Campus Life 



History 



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

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



Tradition 



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

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

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

20 



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

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

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

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



Purpose 



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



21 



Extra-Curricular Activities 



Freshman Program 

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

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



Religious Tradition 

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

The college aims to stress the development and practice of a 
Christian philosophy of life. 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. Speakers include prominent civic lead- 
ers, faculty members, and national figures. This group sponsors 
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. 

22 



Through the generosity of the late Honorable M. B. Rich, for 
eighteeen years President of the Board of Directors, a Department 
of Religion has been established at the College. The Director of 
Religious Activities gives a large portion of his time to promoting 
a helpful religious atmosphere at the institution and to aiding stu- 
dents 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 functions. 
These contacts, together with 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 seeks to develop in each student a sense of loyalty 
and responsibility to good citizenship. To this end there is estab- 
lished a Student Government representing the entire student body 
with the purpose of promoting the general welfare of the college and 
of promoting understanding between students and administration. 

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

Campus Groups 

In addition to the John Wesley Club, Student Christian Asso- 
ciation, and the Student Government, there are varied organizations 
on the campus which provide students with an interesting and 
wholesome social life. These are organized and conducted by the 
students in cooperation with the faculty. Some of these are as 
follows: The International Relations Club, which is the campus 
focus for discussion of world affairs; the Foreign Language Club, 
which supplements class work by helping students to understand 

23 



the folklore of 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 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; the Phalanx Club, a Y. M. C. A, affiliate; 
some religious groups, the Canterbury Club, the Catholic Club, 
and the Methodist Student Movement. 

College Publications 

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

Music 

The Music Department offers organizations for students inter- 
ested in music. The College Choir and College Band are open 
to all students desiring to join. These furnish the college with 
music for many entertainments, athletic events, and celebrations 
throughout the year. 

Fraternities 

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

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

General Programs and Rules 



Physical Education 

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

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

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

Intercollegiate Sports— The college offers an attractive program 
of intercollegiate athletics and encourages wide participation by its 
students. It is a member of the Middle Atlantic Athletic Conference 
and the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Lycoming an- 
nually meets some of the top-ranking small college teams in the 
country in athletic competition. Contests are scheduled with other 
colleges in football, basketball, wrestling, baseball and tennis. 

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

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

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



Student Insurance 

By a special group plan, our students are able to secure acci- 
dent and sickness insurance covering medical and hospital expenses 

26 



whether at home or at college during one academic year. Reim- 
bursement 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 student's own physician and a 
report each year made on a standard form supplied by the College. 
This report is presented on Registration 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 extraordi- 
nary situation. 

Each student is entided 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. 

27 



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 aptitute 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 
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 spendid 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. 

28 



Provisions for Veterans 

Lycoming is fully approved for the educational program for 
Veterans under Federal Public Laws 346, 16, 550, and 894. 



Resident Student Life 

Dormitory life is a significant part of the college experience. 

Rooms at Lycoming are furnished as follows: desk, bureau, 
chair, single bed, mattress, and pillow. Students must supply their 
own bed linen, blankets, 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- 
venience of all boarding students. It is recommended that the 
student bring a minimum of six sheets (single bed), three pillow 
cases, and two double blankets. 



Discipline 

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



Regulations 

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

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

29 



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

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

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

No intoxicants or drinking of intoxicants is permitted on 
campus. 

Students found in an intoxicated condition will be expelled. 

Permission to maintain automobiles on the campus must be 
obtained from the administration. Freshmen will find it almost 
impossible to obtain such permission. 

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.

33 



Candidates for entrance who do not meet the above require- 
ments for admission may be accepted upon making a satisfactory 
score on the college entrance examination or upon a satisfactory 
college board examination rating. 



Terminal Education 

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



Advanced Standing 

A student may be admitted to L\'coming with advanced stand- 
ing 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 Exferiences 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. 



34 



Registration 



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. 

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. 

Music Program 

The Music Department at Lycoming College serves a dual 
purpose in that it seeks to provide students with a fine musical 
background through courses offered while, at the same time, the 
department brings to the campus and to the community musical 
programs which aim to enrich the cultural life of students and 
townspeople. 

Before being accepted as a candidate for the AB degree, with 
a major in music, prospective students must appear before a faculty 
committee to show evidence of adequate musical preparation. It is 
the purpose of the department to guide the development of every 
student in such a way as to effect his maximum growth in per- 
formance and in a keen awareness of sound musical values. 

The music major consists of 30 hours adequately distributed 
in Principles, History and Literature, and Applied Music. All 
music majors must complete minimum requirements in piano. 

In the field of Applied Music students will have two private 
lessons per week in their principle field of performance and one 
private lesson per week in their subordinate field of performance. 

35 



Since musical understanding can be achieved only through a 
great deal of listening, music majors are required to attend all major 
musical performances on the campus and in the community as well 
as the sessions of recorded music directed by staff members. 



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. 



Overload 

Students who wish to carry in excess of the normal load are 
charged $15.00 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. 



36 



Standards 



Grading System 

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

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

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



Probation 

Students whose grade-point average for a semester is .5 or lower 
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 

37 



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. 

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 regulation 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 hours; "0"— points per credit hour. 

4 semester hours credit of physical education (not included in the 
120 academic hours). 

Chapel credit for each fall and spring semester of attendance at 
Lycoming College (% of number of chapel periods per 
semester). 

One course in Bible for all Protestant students and a second course 
in Philosophy for non-Protestant students. 

All financial obligations incurred at the college must be paid. 

The work of the final year is to be taken at this college, except in 
the case of students enrolling in the cooperative programs 
in engineering or forestry as outlined on pages 61 and 62. 

38 



Curricula 



Programs of Study 

Lycoming College confers the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor 
of Science degrees after eight semesters of study normally taken over 
a course of four years. The Bachelor of Arts is taken in the liberal 
arts and sciences. It provides broad training in preparation for 
graduate work or immediate service to the community in places of 
leadership. Some of the specific areas of preparation include medi- 
cine, dentistry, law, the ministry, art, music, teaching, engineering 
and forestry. The first four require additional training at profes- 
sional schools. Engineering and forestry are taken in five year 
cooperative programs with Bucknell University, Duke University, 
and The Pennsylvania State University. 

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

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



Freshman and Sophomore Years 

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

During the freshman year he takes: 

(1) English Composition— This is to develop a facility for 
reading and writing that will help him in the transition from high 
school to college level work. One of the requirements of our mod- 

39 



ern civilization in business as well as the professions is that the 
individual be able to express himself freely and clearly. 

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

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

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

(5) A Survey Course in Cultural Appreciation— It opens up 
these cultural areas for enrichment of life. This choice is made in 
the area of the art or music. 

During his sophomore year, he takes: 

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

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

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

(4) Psychology and Political Science— These requirements 
introduce him to the fields as well as provide a broad survey for his 
general background. 

(5) Philosophy and Religion— These requirements give him 
perspective on life as a whole as well as the basic purpose of the 
College. 

40 



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

Pre-Medicine 



The modern physician or surgeon is no longer one who has studied 
merely medicine. He is a man with a broad cultural training, capable of 
treating more than physical ailments. Therefore, medical authorities are 
recommending a full four years of liberal arts program and are requiring 
certain specific subjects in preparation for medical school.

Pre-Dentistry 

The American Council on Dental Education has fixed a minimum of 
two full years of college work as a requirement for entrance to dental schools. 
However, a four-year course is recommended and the trend toward this has 
been very rapid following World War II.

Nursing 

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

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

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

Expenses and Scholarships 



Expenses 



General Expenses 

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

Tuition at Lycoming is $250.00 per semester, plus certain fees 
which are listed on the following pages. The present cost of Room 
and Board is $300.00 per semester. (The academic year comprises 
two semesters of approximately sixteen weeks each.) If a student 
requests to use a double room as a single room and the room is 
available, he will be charged 50% more than regular rates. 

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

Application Fee and Deposit 

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. 

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. 

103 



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, 1956. 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. The bookstore is open registration day 
and daily thereafter.

before registration day of each semester as follows: 

Resident Students $350.00 

Non-Resident Students 175.00 

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

itemized statement, showing all charges and payments, will be mailed to 

the person who is responsible. On receipt of the bill the balance of term 

charges will be due and payable. 

All grants, scholarships, and earnings from college employment will 

be applied to the student's account at the end of the semester. 

Partial Payments 

For the convenience of those who find it impossible to follow the sched- 
ule of payments as listed, the College has made arrangements with The 
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. Consequendy, stu- 
dents leaving college prior to the ending of a semester will not be entided 
to any refund on room rent. Board will be pro-rated by the week over the 
period of attendance. 

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

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

Other fees cannot be refunded for any reason whatever. 

Penalty for Non-Payment of Fees 

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

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

105 



Damage Charges 

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

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



Financial Assistance 

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

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

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

No grant is allowed on Music and Art, whether taken as extra-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. 

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, from the Mr. and Mrs. Robert F. Rich Loan
