THIS IS LYCOMING 



Purpose and Objectives 



Lycoming College devotes itself to the vocation of humanity: the 
vocation that enables man to become aware of what it means to love 
truth, goodness and beauty, by 

fostering free inquiry and learning in a curricular experience that 
provides basic knowledge of the cultural, social and natural world, 
developing searching, critical, and creative attitudes of mind, en- 
couraging cultural explorations essential to a free society, 

affirming the Christian faith as a valid interpretation of the voca- 
tion of humanity, 

developing an appreciation for the values of social, mental and 
physical well-being, and 

preparing students for professional and vocational opportunities 
that may be pursued upon a more humanitarian level because of 
foundations laid by a strong liberal education. 

"Vocation of humanity" suggests that the primary concern of The 
College is human life and living. We find this concern manifesting 
itself, in a Christian setting, as an affirmation of the fundamental dig- 
nity and worth of all human beings. The entire program of The 
College is directed toward fulfillment of objectives that seek to fit 
young men and women for "the living of these days," in a global 
society in which the priceless commodity is human life. Lycoming 
College redefined its educational mission in 1960 by the formulation 
of the specific objectives above. It now faces the decade ahead with 
the confidence that man's best chance for survival lies in wisdom, 
knowledge, and understanding borne of liberal education. 



10 



History 



While the specific objectives of The College have varied somewhat 
with the changing years, its purpose of providing educational opportu- 
nities for young men and women has remained consistent throughout 
the 150 years of its history. 

Founded in 1812 as Williamsport Academy, it is the oldest educa- 
tional institution in the city of Williamsport. At first, the Academy 
served only the young through what are now recognized as the ele- 
mentary grades. With the advent of public schools in the city, the 
Academy expanded its curricular offerings to include high school and 
college preparatory work. 

In 1848, under the patronage of The Methodist Episcopal Church, 
the Academy became Williamsport-Dickinson Seminary. The Semi- 
nary continued as a private boarding school until 1929 when once 
again its offerings were expanded to include the first two years of 
college work. This expansion resulted in a change of the institution's 
name to Williamsport Dickinson Junior College. During its years as 
a junior college under President John W. Long, the institution forged 
a strong academic reputation, strengthened its faculty and expanded 
its physical plant. 

Increasing national demands for higher education following World 
War II prompted another significant step in the growth of the institu- 
tion. In 1948, the junior college became Lycoming, a four-year degree- 
granting college of liberal arts and sciences. The name Lycoming is 
derived from an Indian word "lacomic" meaning "Great Stream." It is 
a name that has been common to north central Pennsylvania since 
colonial times and is an appropriate one for a school whose purpose 
has been consistently that of educating the area's young men and 
women. Through fulfillment of its specific objectives, it has been and 
continues to be an influential voice in the educational, cultural and 
spiritual development of the entire north central Pennsylvania region. 



11 



Locale 



Lycoming College is situated upon a slight prominence in down- 
town Williamsport, Pennsylvania, overlooking the beautiful West 
Branch Valley of the Susquehanna River. The city has a population 
of some forty-five thousand who quite generally consider The College 
one of their finest assets. 

Williamsport was once the center of the lumbering industry of the 
northeastern United States and, while some vestiges of that enterprise 
remain, the mid-twentieth century finds the city expanding with many 
widely diversified industries. 

The area around Williamsport is famous for its beautiful moun- 
tain scenery and fine outdoor recreational facilities. Every year, thou- 
sands are attracted to the wooded mountain sides and crystal-clear 
streams where the outdoor sports, hunting and fishing, are unsurpassed. 
The city has two large parks, a municipal golf course, tennis courts 
and numerous playgrounds. Public education is represented by excel- 
lent schools both in the city and in the surrounding townships and 
boroughs. Many cultural opportunities are provided by Lycoming 
College, the Civic Choir, the Community Arts Festival and the Com- 
munity Concert Association. Eighty-eight churches representing a 
number of denominations minister to the spiritual needs of the com- 
munity. 

Within America's industrial Northeast, Williamsport is indeed 
centrally located. It is approximately two-hundred miles from the 
major urban centers of the region: Washington, D. C, Baltimore, 
Philadelphia, New York, Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. 
The city is easily accessible by airline, train, bus and automobile. 
Allegheny, United and Trans World Airlines provide some twenty 
flights daily with direct passenger service to virtually all Pennsylvania 
cities as well as New York, Albany, Rochester, Buffalo, Boston, Provi- 
dence, Cleveland, Detroit and Washington, D. C. The Pennsylvania 
Railroad offers daily passenger service to Buffalo, Harrisburg, and 
Washington with connections at Harrisburg to all major cities. Grey- 
hound Bus Lines and Edwards Lakes to Sea System operate daily 
schedules to all points. U. S. Highways 15 and 220 are routed through 
the Williamsport area as are State Highways 14, 87 and 118. The new 
Interstate Highway 80, The Keystone Shortway, will cross the state 
just a few miles south of Williamsport. 

12 



Traditions 



The long and enduring history of Lycoming and the attractive 
geographic setting combine to provide fertile ground for the seeds of 
enriching expansion, a factor that has become one of the College's 
major traditions. To be sure, the alumni nostalgically remember 
"Old Main" and the other buildings, but what seems -most character- 
istic of their college is its amazing capacity for growth: growth that 
continues to meet the demands of our changing society and its evolving 
culture. 

Through more than a century of its history, The College has had 
the stabilizing influence of The Methodist Church. The evolution of 
Lycoming from its origins to its present status has been accomplished 
with the continuous conviction that a Christian philosophy of life is 
the proper leaven of higher education. Lycoming strives to foster a 
Christian atmosphere in all aspects of the college program and to 
stress the development and practice of a Christian way of life. 

Lycoming College is owned by the Preacher's Aid Society of The 
Central Pennsylvania Annual Conference of The Methodist Church. 
The faculty and students express their religious convictions through 
membership and participation in the churches of almost thirty Protes- 
tant denominations as well as the Roman Catholic and Hebrew faiths. 
Significant opportunities are offered every student for personal expres- 
sion of religious faith. Loyalty to the church of one's choice is en- 
couraged. 

Lycoming College firmly believes in Christian higher education. 
One of its major objectives is continuous affirmation of the validity 
of the Christain faith as a way of life. Fulfillment of this objective is 
accomplished by the support of a strong Department of Religion. This 
department was established through the generosity of the late Honor- 
able M. B. Rich, for eighteen years President of the Board of Directors. 

An emphasis upon Christian worship and thought is also offered 
by the weekly Chapel Program. It brings to the campus outstanding 
religious leaders who share with the Student Body the best in con- 
temporary religious thinking. Chapel has become a strong tradition on 
the Lycoming campus. Attendance is required of all students who 
are enrolled full-time. Students are expected to attend The Chapel 

13 



14 Lycoming College Bulletin 

on a regularly scheduled basis on at least fifteen occasions throughout 
any one college year. 

During the first few weeks of the second semester, an annual week 
of religious emphasis is held. The week is under the sponsorship of 
the Religious Life Council. Students and faculty discuss together 
common problems in some aspect of religious experience with the 
objective of stimulating enriched interest throughout the campus 
community. 



ACADEMIC PROGRAM 



Admissions 



ADMISSIONS POLICY 

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

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

APPLICATION PROCEDURE 

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

The Admissions Office compiles a personal file for each applicant 
and the following items must be submitted before final acceptance is 
approved: 

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

2. A small recent photograph ( approximately 2" x 3'' ) of the 
applicant. 

3. The Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Examina- 
tion Board. Applicants wishing to enter the College in September 
should arrange to take these examinations no later than February of 
their senior year. 

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

In addition to the above, all applicants are required to visit the 
campus and to meet with the Director of Admissions or a representa- 
tive of the Admissions Office. This conference provides an opportu- 
nity for reviewing the applicant's academic record, discussing his 
(or her) plans, and answering questions. 

16 



Admissions 17 



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



THE COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION 

BOARD TESTS 

During the academic year 1961-62, the College Entrance Exam- 
ination Board will administer the Scholastic Aptitude Tests on each 
of the dates listed below. The deadline for application is approxi- 
mately one month prior to the test date. 

Dale of Tests 

Saturday, December 2, 1961 Saturday, May 19, 1962 

Saturday, January 13, 1962 Wednesday, August 8, 1962 

Saturday, March 3, 1962 

Applicants should consult with their high school counsellors con- 
cerning the details of registering for the tests, or write directly to the 
College Entrance Examination Board, P. O. Box 592, Princeton, New 
Jersey, requesting the Bulletin of Information. This bulletin, obtain- 
able without charge, contains rules regarding applications, fees, re- 
ports, and the conduct of the tests; lists of examination centers and an 
application blank are bound in it. The completed blank should be re- 
turned to the College Board office promptly. The applicant will then 
be supplied with further information about the tests and his ticket of 
admission to the test center he has specified. The results of the tests 
are sent directly to the college(s) listed by the applicant, but not to 
the applicant. Results are normally received by the Colleges three to 
four weeks following the test date. 

A writing sample exercise will be offered by the College Board on 
December 2, 1961, and January 13, 1962. This is not a requirement 
for admission to Lycoming, but applicants who take this writing test 
are asked to have a copy of it submitted to this College. 



ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS 

The usual evidence of academic preparation to enter Lycoming 
College is the satisfactory completion of 16 units of high school work, 
consisting of 4 units of English, and at least 2 of history, 2 of mathe- 
matics, 2 of science, and 5 elective units. 



18 Lycoming College Bulletin 

Cooperative engineering students and mathematics majors must 
include plane geometry as one of the two units of mathematics. A 
letter of recommendation from the applicant's private teacher and/or 
high school music supervisor should accompany the application of 
music majors. 

EARLY DECISION PLAN 

Lycoming College has adopted an Early Decision Plan which 
will permit the Director of Admissions to notify well qualified candi- 
dates at the beginning of their senior year in high school that their 
admission to the college is assured upon graduation. Further infor- 
mation concerning the Early Decision Plan or the regular programs 
of study offered at Lycoming can be obtained by writing to the 
Director of Admissions. 



ADVANCED STANDING 

A limited number of students with advanced standing may be 
admitted to Lycoming each year. The determining factors in con- 
sidering such applicants will be their academic records at the previous 
college, their field of concentration, and the reasons prompting their 
desire to transfer. All transfer applicants must show evidence of hon- 
orable dismissal from their previous college(s), must submit an official 
transcript of all work taken at other colleges, copies of their current 
catalogues, and must come to the Campus for a personal interview. 
Upon acceptance, the transfer student should contact the Registrar 
to prepare a schedule of studies for the coming semester. A student 
admitted with advanced standing is required to complete at Lycoming 
the last thirty hours in order to qualify for a bachelor's degree. Trans- 
fer students must satisfy the College graduation requirements to be 
awarded a degree. 



ADMISSION TO SUMMER SESSIONS 
AND EVENING CLASSES 

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

Applicants who hold degrees from other colleges or universities 
will be admitted as special students. Such applicants must present 



Admissions 19 

written evidence stating the field of concentration, the degree, and 
the date conferred. 

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



ADMISSIONS OFFICE 

The Admissions Office is located on the Campus on the first floor 
of the Old Main Building. The office is open Monday through Friday 
from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m., and on Saturday from 9 a. m. until noon. 
Appointments for interviews may be arranged by writing or calling 
the office. The telephone number is Williamsport 323-9411, Extension 
12. 

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



Standards 



REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION 

The College offers courses of study leading to the degree of 
Bachelor of Arts. A minimum of 37 semester courses (normally 40 
are expected) totaling at least 120 semester hours are required for 
graduation. A minimum of 15 courses shall be of 300-400 level. Among 
all courses, 25 or more must have been passed with a grade of C or 
better. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 1.80 is required 
for graduation. 

Additional requirements are: 
Four semester hours credit in Physical Education to be taken in the 
first two years ( not included in the 120 academic hours ) . 

Chapel credit for each fall and spring semester of attendance at 

Lycoming College. 
A one-hour course in Orientation. 
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 medi- 
cal technology, engineering, or forestry. 



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. Ordinarily, 
two hours of laboratory work are rated as one credit hour. 

Lycoming College uses the letter system of grading. "A" indi- 
cates work of highest excellence showing a superior grasp of the 
content, as well as independent and creative thinking in the course. 
"B" signifies better than average achievement wherein the student 
reveals insight and understanding. A grade of "C" is given for satis- 
factory achievement where the work has been of adequate quality 
and quantity. "C" is generally regarded as an average grade. A "D" 
grade indicates that the student has met the minimum requirements 
of the course. "F" is the failing grade, and the student receives neither 
credits nor quality points for courses carrying an "F" grade. A student 
must repeat all required courses for which he receives an "F" grade. 

20 



Standards 21 



Scholastic rank is determined by the quality point system. A 
grade of "A" carries 4 quality points per semester hour. "B" carries 3, 
"C" carries 2, "D" carries 1, and "F" carries 0. A student's scholastic 
or grade-point average is computed by dividing total quality points 
earned by total credits scheduled, including those failed, if any. 



ACADEMIC HONORS 

Students who have demonstrated high intellectual achievement 
throughout their college years may have the degree conferred upon 
them "with honors." To be eligible for such honors, a student must 
have passed at least ninety semester hours of academic work at Lycom- 
ing College. 

The Bachelor of Arts degree, summa cum laude, shall be conferred 
upon students who have a grade-point average for their entire college 
course from 3.90 to 4.00. 

The Bachelor of Arts degree, magna cum laude, shall be conferred 
upon students who have a grade-point average for their entire college 
course from 3.50 through 3.89. 

The Bachelor of Arts degree, cum laude, shall be conferred upon 
students who have a grade-point average for their entire college course 
from 3.25 through 3.49. 

The Deans List is issued at the close of every semester to give 
recognition to those students who have shown superior academic 
achievement. Students whose grade-point averages are 3.4 or above 
for any one semester are nominated to the Dean's List. 

The Sachem is Lycoming's honor society. Eligibility for member- 
ship is based upon intellectual achievement. Any graduating student 
who has attended Lycoming College for at least six semesters and has 
attained a grade-point average of 3.50 or above, or any junior student 
who has attended Lycoming College for six semesters and has attained 
a grade-point average of 3.70 or above is eligible for membership. An- 
nouncements of election to membership and awarding of certificates 
take place annually during the June Commencement exercises. 



CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Admission to the Freshman Class: See requirements for admis- 
sion to Lycoming College, Page 17. 

Admission to the Sophomore Class: Twenty-three semester hours 
and a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 1.33. 



22 Lycoming College Bulletin 

Admission to the Junior Class: Fifty-four semester hours and a 
minimum cumulative grade-point average of 1.50. Satisfactory per- 
formance in written English, as judged by a proficiency examination 
administered by the English Department in the second semester of the 
sophomore year, is also a condition of admission to junior standing. 

Admission to the Senior Class: Eighty-five semester hours and a 
minimum cumulative grade-point average of 1.67. No Junior may 
enter senior classification until all freshman, sophomore and junior 
required courses, including foreign language or mathematics where 
applicable, have been passed. 

PROBATION 

When the following situations occur, students are placed upon 
academic probation and have suspended all scholarship and grant-in- 
aid financial assistance, as well as the privilege of participating in 
organized extra-curricular activities. 

Freshmen — when the grade-point average is less than 1.33 for any 
one semester and less than a cumulative 1.33 after two semesters. 

Sophomores — when the grade-point average is less than 1.67 for 
any one semester and less than a cumulative 1.50 after four semesters. 

Juniors — when the grade-point average is less than 2.00 for any 
one semester or less than a cumulative 1.67 after six semesters. 

Seniors — when the grade-point average is less than 2.00 for any 
one semester. 

ACADEMIC DISMISSAL 

The serious step of academic dismissal is taken when, in the 
judgment of the Faculty Committee on Probation and Dismissal, a 
student has demonstrated an incompatability with the academic de- 
mands of the college. The committee is guided by the following 
principles : 

1. Freshmen on probation whose cumulative grade point aver- 
ages are 1.00 or above may be permitted to continue into the second 
year with the understanding that failure to achieve a cumulative grade- 
point average of 1.33 by the close of the first semester of the second 
year will result in academic dismissal. Attendance in the summer 
session in an effort to achieve the necessary grade-point average is 
strongly recommended. 

2. Sophomores on probation who fail to achieve a grade-point 
average of 1.67 during the semester in which they are on probation 
may be given the privilege of continuing into the third year with the 



Standards 23 

understanding that failure to achieve a cumulative grade-point average 
of 1.50 by the close of the first semester of the third year will result in 
academic dismissal. 

3. Academic dismissal of juniors and seniors on probation will 
depend upon a review of the entire record. 

4. The College reserves the right to dismiss any student whose 
grades are excessively low in any one semester. It also reserves the 
right to dismiss any student when such dismissal is in the best interests 
of The College. 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The academic program at Lycoming is based upon the assumption 
that there is value in class attendance for all students. Individual in- 
structors have the privilege of establishing reasonable absence regula- 
tions in any given course. Responsibility for learning and observing 
these regulations rests with the student. 

NORMAL STUDENT LOAD 

All students who are degree candidates are expected to register 
for four or five academic courses in any one semester. Grade-point 
averages used to determine honors, Dean's List, probation and dis- 
missal are based upon a minimum of twelve semester hours of academic 
work per semester. 

Students who wish to carry more than the normal load of five 
academic courses may do so after securing written permission from the 
Dean of the College. Charges for the overload will be assessed the 
student at the rate of $35.00 for every semester hour in excess of five 
academic courses. 



Degree Requirements 



Lycoming College confers the Bachelor of Arts degree. Candi- 
dates for the Bachelor of Arts degree follow programs designed to 
fulfill the objectives of The College within the normal 120 semester 
hours ( 8 semesters ) of college work. In every program the curricular 
experience provides a basic knowledge of the cultural, social, and 
natural world with emphasis upon the aevelopment of searching, 
critical, and creative attitudes of mind. Achievement of these objec- 
tives is sought by requiring of the student a core of general studies 
courses as well as a major of at least twenty -to ur seme , f ei hours. 



ENGLISH COMPOSITION 

Six hours of English composition are required of all students. It 
is assumed that satisfactory completion of these six hours of composi- 
tion will allow for the establishment of a firm understanding of English 
language usage. It is further assumed that such understanding will be 
maintained during the remaining college years and beyond. The stu- 
dent is expected to use consistently good English in writing and speak- 
ing in all his college courses. He should recognize that a part of the 
grade evaluation for any course may depend upon the degree to which 
effective use is made of the English language. In order to determine 
further the student's consistency in the use of good English, the De- 
partment of English administers English Competence Examinations 
to all students during the second semester of their sophomore year. 
Students who do not attain satisfactory scores on these examinations 
must re-register for English composition ( English 101 ) without credit 
in the next succeeding semester. They must then retake the English 
Competence Examinations in the second semester of the following year. 
Failure to achieve satisfactory scores for the second consecutive year 
will necessitate taking additional non-credit work in English composi- 
tion to be followed by a third attempt in the English Competence 
Examinations. Inability to achieve a satisfactory score on the third 
attempt will result in academic dismissal from The College. 

24 



Degree Requirements 25 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE OR MATHEMATICS 

Experience in a foreign language or mathematics is required of 
all students. The level of achievement is adjudged to be completion of 
the second year college course in either area. 

A. Foreign Language: 

Students electing foreign language must meet the requirement of 
two years of French, German, Greek, Russian, or Spanish. The 
first year may be waived if the student demonstrates sufficient 
proficiency in the language by: (1) offering a satisfactory grade 
in an examination administered during Freshman Days; (2) offer- 
ing a satisfactory grade in the Language Achievement Test of the 
College Board Examinations; or (3) offering acceptable transfer 
credits for an introductory course (two semesters) on the college 
level. Students who elect a foreign language and who present for 
admission to Lycoming College at least two years of that language 
on the high school level, but who do not qualify for waiver of the 
first year college course under the conditions described above are 
required to take the first year college course without credit unless 
18 or more acceptable units were completed in high school, or to 
elect another language at the first year level. 

Once a student has enrolled in an elementary or intermediate 
language sequence to fulfil a graduation requirement, credit for 
the first semester's work will be withheld until the second semes- 
ter's work has been successfully completed. 

B. Mathematics: 

Students electing mathematics must meet the requirement of two 
years by taking College Algebra and Trigonometry ( Mathematics 
101-102) and Analytical Geometry and Differential Calculus 
(Mathematics 201-205) or Introduction to Modern Mathematics 
( Mathematics 207-208). The first year, Mathematics 101-102 may 
be waived if the student demonstrates some proficiency by offer- 
ing a satisfactory grade on an examination administered during 
Freshman Days or if he presents acceptable transfer credits for 
the introductory sequence (two semesters) on the college level. 



26 Lycoming College Bulletin 

KNOWLEDGE OF THE CULTURAL, SOCIAL 
AND NATURAL WORLD 

One of the objectives of The College specifies knowledge of the 
cultural, social and natural world as vital to the education of every 
student. Achievement of this objective is sought by requiring students 
to take a minimum of one year of work in a single department in each 
of the following broad areas or groups of departments. 

A. Literature in English, French, German, Russian or Spanish. 

B. Religion or Philosophy. 

C. Art, Music, or Speech ( Drama ) . 

D. History or Political Science. 

E. Economics, Psychology or Sociology. 

F. Biology, Chemistry, Geology or Physics. 

To add depth as well as breadth to his program of general studies, 
the student takes at least one course beyond the one-year sequence in 
the selected departments of at least three of the above groups. 



THE MAJOR 

Competence in a special area of academic work that may mean the 
satisfaction of certain vocational desires is to be sought in a major of at 
least twenty-four semester hours in one of the following: 

American Civilization German 

Art History 

Biology Mathematics 

Business Administration Music 

Accounting Philosophy 

Banking and Finance Physics 

General Business Political Science 

Marketing and Retailing Psychology 

Chemistry Religion 

Economics Russian 

English Sociology 

French Spanish 

Special curricula, with majors in one of the areas listed above, are 
offered in teacher training, cooperative engineering, medical tech- 
nology, cooperative forestry, and in preparation for professional edu- 
cation in dentistry, law, medicine, the Christian ministry and Christian 
education. Attention is also called to the fact that the majors in the 
areas listed above are suitable for preparation of the candidate for 
admission to graduate school.

Students will register for courses only after consultation with and 
approval of faculty advisers. It is expected that students will elect 
those courses recommended by the department in which the major is 
to be taken. Course selection will obviously vary considerably de- 
pending upon the curriculum, the major and student interests. 

Programs of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree at Ly- 
coming College are described in some detail in the following para- 
graphs. Each program calls for a variety of different courses. But 
ordinarily, the courses to be taken in the freshman year will conform 
closely to the general outline given above regardless of the curriculum 
chosen. 



Curricula 



PURPOSES OF THE CURRICULA 

Courses of study in Lycoming College are designed to fulfill two 
specific but interrelated purposes. The first is to acquaint the student 
with the liberal arts heritage of human civilization and the American 
nation, and the second is to provide him an opportunity to explore 
from an elementary to an advanced level various subject matter fields 
that may fit him for a life's vocation or direct him toward professional 
or graduate schools. 

The curricula are organized so that the basic purposes may be 
fulfilled simultaneously within the normal 120 semester hours ( 8 semes- 
ters) of college work. 



THE DEPARTMENTAL MAJOR 

Electing a major in college work depends upon a variety of 
factors. Preparation for a specific vocation will very often determine 
the major. But for the student who does not have a specific vocational 
aim, the choice of a major, which can be deferred until the beginning 
of the junior year in some cases, must depend upon other factors. 
Not the least important of these are the student's interest and aptitude. 
Every effort will be made through the counseling service offered by 
The College to determine the range of interests and aptitudes and 
thereby enable the student to come to a decision that will be best 
for him. 

Because education is a continuous process that does not end at 
the completion of four years of college work, the student is encouraged, 
when aptitude and ability indicate probable success, to consider the 
opportunities available through graduate and professional studies. 
Listed below are a number of professional and graduate areas for 
which preparation may be secured at Lycoming College. 



AMERICAN CIVILIZATION MAJOR 

Recognizing the rich intellectual heritage associated with the 
founding and subsequent development of the American nation, the 
Departments of English and History in Lycoming College have estab- 

28 



Curricula 29 

lished a combined English-History curriculum which focuses attention 
upon American civilization. Here the uniqueness of American democ- 
racy, cradled and nurtured on this continent, is stressed throughout. 
In order to achieve the deepest insight into the American scene, both 
historical and contemporary, the curriculum includes, in addition to 
those freshman and sophomore history and English requirements, 
twenty-four hours of 300- and 400- level English and history courses 
including History 359-360, American Social and Intellectual History, 
six advanced hours in American literature and not more than nine 
advanced hours in either subject. Students desiring a thorough back- 
ground in American civilization in preparation for graduate work, the 
Christian ministry, civil or foreign service or teaching will find this a 
most attractive and exciting curriculum. 



PREPARATION FOR DENTAL SCHOOL 

At least three years of pre-dental study are suggested before 
entry into a college of dentistry. However, many students prefer to 
defer their matriculation in a dental college until they have earned a 
Bachelor of Arts degree. The pre-dental curriculum is organized 
around the basic courses in biology, chemistry and physics. Electing 
a major in one of the natural sciences is the usual procedure. The 
student should consult the catalogue of the college of dentistry to 
which he expects to apply so that all courses specifically required by 
that college of dentistry may be included in his program at Lycoming 
College. The modern practitioner of dentistry is not just a dentist. 
He is a human being dealing with other human personalities and as 
such must be conversant in a great variety of human experiences. 
For this reason, the pre-dental curriculum will be augmented with 
courses from many areas of academic work. In addition to the science 
courses, therefore, the pre-dental student will include in his curriculum 
courses from the fine arts, humanities and social sciences, as well as a 
foreign language. 



COOPERATIVE CURRICULUM IN ENGINEERING 

Consistent with increased attention being given nationally to 
engineering education, Lycoming College offers a cooperative cur- 
riculum combining the manifold advantages of a small liberal arts 
college with the training to be secured at an engineering school. By 
arrangement with Bucknell University and The Pennsylvania State 
University, the College offers a five-year program the first three years 
of which are spent at Lycoming and the final two at the engineering 



30 Lycoming College Bulletin 

school. Upon completion of the first year at the engineering school, 
the student's record will be sent to Lycoming College, and if the work 
is satisfactory, Lycoming College will award the Bachelor of Arts 
degree. Upon the completion of the five-year program of studies, a 
Bachelor of Science in Engineering is awarded by the engineering 
school. Combined programs offer an opportunity for completion of 
studies in the following areas: Bucknell University: chemical, civil, 
electrical, or mechanical engineering; The Pennsylvania State Univer- 
sity: aeronautical, civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical or sanitary 
engineering. 

Prescribed work at Lycoming includes, in addition to the degree 
requirements outlined above, courses in chemistry, mathematics and 
physics. Because the demands of the engineering curricula may differ 
somewhat, a program of studies at Lycoming College will be designed 
for each student when his plans as to type of engineering program 
preferred have been finally fixed. The Director of the Division of 
Natural Science or a member of the teaching staff in the physical 
sciences will aid each cooperative engineering student in planning his 
program. 

COOPERATIVE CURRICULUM IN FORESTRY 

Lycoming College offers a program for forestry students which 
combines a strong liberal arts and science background with profes- 
sional training in forestry at the Duke School of Forestry, Duke Uni- 
versity, Durham, North Carolina. 

The program as established is of five years' duration. A student 
electing to pursue this program of study will spend three years at 
Lycoming where he will meet the liberal arts degree requirements, 
including such subjects as English, a foreign language, biology, chem- 
istry, physics, mathematics and economics. 

Upon satisfactory completion of these three years' work at Ly- 
coming College, the student will apply for admission to the Duke 
School of Forestry for one summer and two years of training in for- 
estry. At the end of his first year at Duke, his record will be sent to 
Lycoming College. If the work be satisfactory for this fourth year in 
college, Lycoming will award the Bachelor of Arts degree. Upon the 
satisfactory completion of the second year in forestry school, the pro- 
fessional degree, Master of Forestry, will be awarded by Duke 
University. 

PREPARATION FOR LAW SCHOOL 

Many colleges of law require a Bachelor of Arts degree for ad- 
mission. The four-year degree program in pre-law at Lycoming 



Curricula 31 

College provides a background for the prospective student of law. 
Requirements include courses in political science and history, but also 
specified is a wide range of subject matter, designed to acquaint the 
student with the vast scope of human experience. Students may 
expect to major in economics, history, political science, or related fields 
as they prepare for matriculation in law school. Individual programs 
are tailored to fit the student's needs as well as to meet the specific 
requirements of the law school to which he applies for admission. 



PREPARATION FOR MEDICAL SCHOOL 

This curriculum is organized around a solid foundation of the 
basic courses in biology, chemistry and physics. Pre-medical students 
usually major in one of the natural sciences. The student should be 
aware of the specific pre-medical course requirements demanded by 
the medical school to which he will apply so that all such requirements 
can be fitted properly into his curriculum at Lycoming College. Con- 
sistent with suggestions of the medical schools, a wide range of subject 
matter from the humanities, social sciences and fine arts are also to be 
included in the curriculum. Some students may matriculate in a 
college of medicine after three years of pre-medical work, but the 
more normal procedure is to elect four years of pre-medical study and 
enter the medical college with a Bachelor of Arts degree. 



PREPARATION FOR THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY 

(Christian Ministry) 

Young men and women called to the Christian ministry or related 
vocations will find the pre-ministerial curriculum at Lycoming College 
an exciting and challenging opportunity. Basic courses specified by 
the American Association of Theological Schools are virtually identical 
with the program of courses required for a Bachelor of Arts degree at 
Lycoming College. Such courses offer a wide range of subject matter 
presenting many opportunities for the eager pre-ministerial student to 
acquaint himself with the broad scope of human experience. Prepara- 
tion for seminary includes earning a Bachelor of Arts degree with a 
major in one of a variety of fields such as English, history, American 
civilization, philosophy or a social science. So that every student may 
have a curriculum designed to fit his individual needs, the offerings in 
the junior and senior year are largely elective. However, the choice 
of electives will depend upon the specific requirements of the theo- 
logical school in which the student expects to matriculate. 



32 Lycoming College Bulletin 

CURRICULUM IN RELIGION AND 
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 

Any student desiring extensive study in Biblical history and litera- 
ture, the historical development of Christianity, and Christian doctrine, 
may major in religion. A qualified student planning to enter the voca- 
tion of religious education should, besides majoring in religion, elect 
18-21 semester hours in prescribed psychology, education, sociology, 
and church music courses. This program of study, completely within 
the liberal arts curriculum, is to qualify graduates for work as Educa- 
tional Assistants, or after graduate study in a theological seminary, as 
Directors of Christian Education. Interested students, or prospective 
students, are invited to contact Dr. Ramsey of the Department of 
Religion for further information concerning the opportunities, respon- 
sibilities and requirements of these and other church vocations. 



TEACHER EDUCATION 

Lycoming College trains teachers for both elementary and sec- 
ondary education. The program is clearly identified with the liberal 
arts nature of the College, and hence, no candidate for the profession 
of teaching is considered apart from the total liberal arts objective.

seminars is strongly recommended. These meetings are oriented 
toward the stimulation of professional attitudes. 

2. Students will elect courses in academic and professional areas 
according to the demands of the major field. 

3. Registration for Education 400 or 401, Practice Teaching, will be 
permitted only when a satisfactory cumulative grade-point average 
has been achieved in all courses. 



BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION CURRICULUM 

Lycoming College offers course work in the area of general busi- 
ness particularly designed for training the prospective business execu- 
tive. The modern American executive has a broad scope of intellectual 
interests outside his field of specialization. For this reason, the stu- 
dents enrolled in this curriculum will be required to take a wide range 
of courses in humanities, fine arts and the natural and social sciences. 
In addition to these courses specified under Degree Requirements 
above, the business student will be required to take Elementary 
Accounting, Statistics, Business Law, Principles of Economics, Money 
and Banking, and Corporate Finance. The remainder of the courses 
to be taken in the field of business will depend upon the major. 

a. Major in general business: Advanced courses in the field of business 
administration and/or economics totalling 24 semester hours, be- 
yond the basic courses outlined above. 

b. Major in accounting: Intermediate Accounting and at least 18 
additional hours in Accounting. 



34 Lycoming College Bulletin 

c. Major in banking and finance: Intermediate Accounting and at 
least 18 additional hours in recommended business courses. 

d. Major in retail distribution: At least 24 semester hours in courses 
in retailing, marketing, and selling. 

e. Major in economics: Principles of Economics and 24 additional 
hours in economics. 



MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY 

This curriculum is organized around an academic background of 
basic science courses in addition to those liberal arts courses listed as 
requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree. Twelve semester hours 
in biology are required as well as one semester of mathematics. In 
chemistry, General Chemistry and Quantitative Analysis are specified. 
Three years are spent in obtaining this academic background; the 
fourth year is spent in the medical laboratories of an approved hospital. 
The senior year will consist of an internship of a full calendar year at a 
hospital accredited in the Registry of Medical Technologists of the 
American Society of Clinical Pathologists. The College will give credit 
for the year when it is informed that the student has successfully

EXPENSES AND 



FINANCIAL AID 



Expenses 



GENERAL EXPENSES 

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

Tuition at Lycoming is $450.00 per semester, plus certain fees 
which are listed on the following pages. The room expense for board- 
ing students amounts to $200.00 per semester except for men living in 
the Fraternity Residence who are assessed an additional $25.00 Board 
is $225.00 per semester (the academic year comprises two semesters 
of approximately sixteen weeks each). If, for justifiable reason, it is 
impossible for a student to eat in the College Dining Hall, permission 
may be given the student to make other arrangements for meals. 
However, in the event such permission is granted, the room cost will 
be 50% higher than the above rates. If a student requests the use of 
a double room as a single room and the room is available, he will be 
charged 50% more than regular rates. 

The tuition charged covers the regular or prescribed course of 
study which normally comprises four or five subjects (12-18 hours). 
If a student elects to carry additional courses a charge of $35.00 per 
credit hour is levied. Those students carrying fewer than 12 hours 
are also charged at the rate of $35.00 per credit hour. Additional 
detailed information will be furnished by the Treasurer's Office upon 
request. 

APPLICATION FEE AND DEPOSIT 

All students applying for admission are required to send an 
application fee of $10.00 with the application. This charge is to 
partially defray the costs of processing the application, maintaining 
academic records and is non-refundable. 

After a student is notified that he has been accepted for admission 
by The College, he is required to make a deposit of $50.00. This de- 

36 



Expenses 37 

posit is evidence of the applicant's good intention to matriculate and 
is applicable to the general charges of the semester, and is not an 
extra fee. This deposit is not refundable. 

All returning students are required to pay a deposit of $50.00 on 
or before April 15, to reserve their place in the student body. This 
deposit is credited to the student's account, but is not refundable. 

BOOKS AND SUPPLIES 

A modern book and supply store is conveniently located in the 
Student Activities Building. Books and supplies are purchased by 
the individual student. The estimated cost is approximately $75.00 
per year, but will vary somewhat in accordance with the course of 
study which the student is pursuing. The bookstore is open registra- 
tion day and daily thereafter.

PAYMENT OF FEES 

The basic fees for the semester are due and payable on or before 
registration day for that semester. Checks or money orders should 
be payable to Lycoming College. These basic fees are as follows: 

Resident Students $925.00 

Non-Resident Students $500.00 

Charges for laboratory supplies and additional credit hours 
will be billed and payable immediately following each regis- 
tration period. 

PARTIAL PAYMENTS 

For the convenience of those who find it impossible to follow the 
schedule of payments as listed, arrangements may be made with the 
College Treasurer, for the monthly payment of college fees. Addi- 
tional information concerning partial payments may be obtained from 
the Treasurer, or Director of Admissions. 



WITHDRAWALS AND REFUNDS 

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

Room rentals have been fixed on a semester basis. Consequently, 
students leaving College prior to the ending of a semester will not be 
entitled to any refund of 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 volun- 
tarily 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 The College. 

Other fees cannot be refunded for any reason whatever. 



Expenses 39 

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, transcript of credits, or 
certification of withdrawal in good standing will be granted to any 
student 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 stu- 
dents of the section where damage occurs. Actual costs of repairs 
will be charged. 

FINANCIAL AID 

A generous program of financial aid for students is designed to 
recognize outstanding achievement and to supplement limited re- 
sources by providing assistance to students in their efforts to obtain a 
college education. This assistance may take any one, or any combina- 
tion, of the following forms: (1) Scholarships, (2) Grants-in-aid, (3) 
Loans, (4) Workships. 

With the exception of discounts, the establishment of need is the 
controlling factor in determining the amount of the grant or award. 
To this end, Lycoming uses the College Scholarship Service sponsored 
by the College Entrance Examination Board. Prescribed forms are 
furnished by the College upon request. 

Scholarships are awarded to the beginning student on the basis 
of academic achievement as evidenced by the scores on the College 
Entrance Examination Board tests and a ranking in the first fifth of 
the high school class. To continue the receipt of the award during 
succeeding years, a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 plus must 
be maintained together with satisfactory campus citizenship. 

Grants-In-Aid are awarded annually to students on the basis of 
a demonstrated need. The size of the grant is determined by need 
and by the promise of becoming beneficial members of The College 
family and of society. 

Ministerial Grants-In-Aid: Financial assistance is available through 
grants from The Methodist Church to children of ministers and min- 



40 Lycoming College Bulletin

assistance. 

Detailed information concerning the above loans is available upon

CAMPUS LIFE 



Religious Life 



The opportunity to develop and practice the Christian philosophy 
of life is accomplished: 

through the Director of Religious Activities, who is a member 
of the Faculty with teaching responsibilities. He is responsible 
for co-ordinating the religious activities of the College and pro- 
vides counseling in the area of religion to students who request 
his assistance. He serves as Executive Secretary to the Religious 
Life Council. 

through the Religious Life Council, the student organization re- 
sponsible for co-ordinating religious groups on the campus. It is 
composed of respresentatives from all student religious organiza- 
tions, the Student Government, Faculty, Administration, and the 
local clergy. 

through religious organizations which include the Methodist Stu- 
dent Movement (meeting weekly at the College Church, Pine 
Street Methodist Church, located at the intersection of Pine Street 
and Edwin Street) and the John Wesley Club. Other denomina- 
tional groups include the Canterbury Club (Episcopal), the 
Icthus Club (Presbyterian), the Lutheran Club, the Newman 
Club ( Roman Catholic ) , and the Roger Williams Club ( Baptist ) . 
Each of these meets regularly to provide members of its faith with 
the opportunity to participate in activities of common interest. 



Campus Life 



Lycoming College accepts the responsibility of making every situ- 
ation in which learning occurs constructive and positive. The College 
believes that learning is a continuous process that takes place, not 
only in the classroom, but in every college activity. 

The College assumes its responsibility in this area by directing 
the extra-curricular educational experiences of the students in such a 

48 



Campus Life 49 

way that these activities contribute to the achievement of the objec- 
tives of The College, by complementing the academic life of the 
campus. 

The College considers one of its responsibilities to be the encour- 
agement of as many different activities as are necessary to provide all 
students with the opportunity to participate constructively in this area 
of student life. Departmental clubs; athletics, both intercollegiate and 
intramural; varied interest groups such as denominational clubs, the 
choir, the band, etc.; social organizations; social activities; self-govern- 
ing groups; and many informal associations are equally important in 
a well-integrated program of student activities. 

Recognizing the need for skilled leadership in our world, it is the 
purpose of The College to utilize students in as many of the leadership 
positions as possible. In doing so, the students will be given the 
opportunity to accept greater responsibilities, and to learn as they 
participate. 

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

Self-government by students in certain areas of campus life is an 
objective achieved through the Student Government Association of 
Lycoming College. The Student Council is the legislative body of the 
Association. The officers of the Student Government Association are 
elected from the entire student body. Members of Student Council are 
elected by classes and certain other organizations. 

The Student Council has been delegated authority for certain 
areas of campus life. The establishment of parking regulations and 
their enforcement is the responsibility of Student Government. Stu- 
dents are employed by Student Council to serve as enforcement offi- 
cers. All fines collected for violations are turned over to Student 
Council to pay for the costs of the registration of automobiles and the 
enforcement officers. 

A Student Court has been established by Student Council to hear 
cases involving the violation of the parking regulations. This court is 
also empowered to consider cases referred to it by the Student Union 
Court or to hear cases on appeal of students from the Student Union 
Court. 

The Student Court is composed of four students appointed by the 
President of the Student Council with the approval of the Council 
and the Dean of Students. 

A number of standing committees of Student Council are con- 
cerned with specific areas of student life. The Social Calendar-Con- 
cessions Committee is responsible for approving the scheduling of all 
social activities by student organizations, and awards concessions to 



50 Lycoming College Bulletin 

student groups for "fund raising" purposes upon request. The Dining 
Room Committee is responsible for the dress regulations in the Dining 
Room and advises the manager in menu planning and other areas of 
concern. 

Homecoming, Winter Week-end and Spring Week-end are major 
social activities under the sponsorship of Student Council. Each of 
these week-ends features a major dance with a "name band," along 
with a full program of activities. 

Other governing groups on the campus are the Inter-Fraternity 
Council, the Men's Dormitory Council, the Women's Dormitory Coun- 
cil, and Associated Women Students. Each operates under limited 
authority in situations related to its specific area. 



SOCIAL AND CULTURAL INFLUENCES 

Lycoming aims to give its students every possible opportunity 
to become familiar with the best social customs and usages. The 
development of poise and ease in handling oneself in social situations 
is a major objective in the program of The College. These experiences 
are provided through the dining room, coffees and receptions, and 
other social functions. 

The Artist and Lecture Series presents several performances of 
the best obtainable talent in music, drama, the dance, and lecture. 
The Series is presented to provide wider cultural experiences than 
might normally be available to the student. Although the Series is 
entertaining, its prime objective is to acquaint the student with the arts 
and the humanities as they are performed on a professional level. 



COLLEGE PUBLICATIONS AND COMMUNICATIONS 

There are several official college publications. Each is devoted to 
a specific area of college life, and is designed to communicate to selected 
groups of the college constituency. 

The Bell, official student newspaper, is published weekly, and is 
devoted to interests of the student body, reporting current campus 
events. 

The Arrow, college yearbook, is published in May and presents a 
record of student life during the current academic year. 

The Guidepost, published annually by Student Government, is a 
student handbook of regulations and miscellaneous information. It is 
designed primarily for new students and is distributed to them prior 
to their arrival on the campus. 



Campus Life 51 

The Alumni Office publishes The Alumni Bulletin three times 
yearly. It is designed to keep the alumni informed of current happen- 
ings at the college and on alumni activities. The Newsletter is pub- 
lished periodically, between issues of the Bulletin. 

The Student Bulletin and The Faculty Bulletin are published 
weekly by the office of the Dean of the College. The Lycoming Li- 
brary Student Handbook is published by the Library every September. 

The Campus Radio Station broadcasts nightly from 7:00 p. m. un- 
til midnight on a wired circuit to Wesley Hall, Rich Hall and Old 
Main. The station broadcasts study music, news commentary, sports 
results, and special programs of interest to the student body. 



CAMPUS CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS 

A variety of organizations on the campus provides opportunities 
for social and intellectual growth. These groups are organized and 
conducted by students in cooperation with faculty sponsors or advisers. 

Some of the groups are: The International Relations Club, which 
is the campus focus for study and discussion of world affairs; the 
Student Education Association of Pennsylvania, which gives prospec- 
tive teachers current information on the teaching field and an insight 
into the problems of education; the Drama Club, which stages a 
variety of dramatic productions including their own original work; 
The Varsity Club, composed of lettermen, promotes college spirit in 
sports; the Pre-Medical Society for pre-professional students in the sci- 
ences; the Business Club for students majoring in business administra- 
tion. The Philosophy Society provides an outlet for all students inter- 
ested in the informal discussion of philosophic concepts; the French, 
German, Russian and Spanish Clubs study the language and the life 
and culture of the countries; and the Associated Women Students 
sponsor parties and teas for students, faculty and parents. 



FRATERNITIES 

Five Greek letter groups on the campus provide a means of bring- 
ing to men students the advantages of national 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.

Programs and Rules 



ORIENTATION 

A period preceding the opening of the Fall Term is set aside to 
provide freshmen and transfer students with assistance in making the 
adjustment to Lycoming College. A special program consisting of 
placement testing, interviews with faculty counselors, general ori- 
entation meetings, formal convocation, registration, and social and rec- 
reational activity is prepared. Faculty and selected upperclassmen are 
present to assist the new student during this period. All new students 
are required to participate in this program. The schedule is mailed to 
each freshman and transfer student during the summer. 

During the first Fall Semester a new student is on campus, he must 
complete a course in Orientation, which is required for graduation. 
This course, meeting weekly, carries one hour of credit ( not applicable 
toward the degree) and covers the various aspects of adjustment to 
college, the use of the library, study skills, attitudes, and motivation. 

FRESHMAN CUSTOMS 

Certain traditions and customs have been established for fresh- 
men. They are designed to help the freshmen become acquainted 
with the history and customs of Lycoming College. Each regulation 
has a purpose in the development of the individual into a class group 
which is a part of the total College community. The customs freshmen 
will be expected to observe are printed in the Guidepost. 

INTERCOLLEGIATE SPORTS 

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

56 



Programs and Rules 57 

INTRAMAURAL ATHLETICS 

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

Sports for men include touch football, basketball, volleyball, bowl- 
ing, badminton, table tennis, tennis, softball, golf, wrestling, swim- 
ming, 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. 

COUNSELING PROGRAM 

An advantage of a small college is the rich experience gained by 
the close association of students and faculty. In addition to this valu- 
able personal relationship, which affords students the opportunity to 
discuss various problems with their instructors, Lycoming has a well- 
rounded counseling program for its students. Under the direction of 
the Dean of the College, this program includes areas as represented by 
the Dean of Students, the Dean of Women, and Faculty Advisers. 

The program begins with a personal interview between the Direc- 
tor of Admissions and the candidate for admission. These interviews 
are sufficient in length to obtain a picture of the student, his back- 
ground, and his plans for the future. When the student enters the 
College as a Freshman, he is assigned to a faculty adviser. The new 
student will meet with this adviser regularly during the year. The 
Freshman will find his adviser eager to guide and assist in the many 
problems that confront the new college student. Certain tests will 
be made available to the students for diagnostic purposes and to assist 
in advisement. These tests will be offered on a referral basis to those 
students for whom the need is obvious. Additional counseling is avail- 
able to the student in the area of academic, personal and emotional 
adjustment. 

PLACEMENT SERVICE 

The Placement Bureau maintains a register listing the abilities and 
major interests of students and recent alumni. Literature from busi- 
nesses and industrial associations is kept available. Consultations with 
the Placement Director assist students toward wise selection of a pro- 
fession. Interviews are then scheduled at which students meet and 



58 Lycoming College Bulletin 

confer with representatives from companies in which they are inter- 
ested. 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 conferences. They also afford the student body a variety of part- 
time jobs during each college session. The Placement Bureau serves 
as a clearinghouse for part-time employment and can usually find 
work for every student needing it. 

PROVISIONS FOR VETERANS 

Lycoming is fully approved for the educational program for Vet- 
erans under Federal Public Laws 550, 634, and 894.

All single students who do not reside at home are required to 
live in The College residence halls and eat their meals in The College

the residence halls. Exceptions to these regulations can be approved 
only for the purpose of working for room and/or board or to live with

date 128 upperclass women students. Rooms are arranged in suites 
of two rooms with two students living in each room. Each four

DISCIPLINE 

The College expects all of its students to accept the responsibility 
required of citizens in a free democratic society. The rules and regu- 
lations of The College are designed to protect the rights of every mem- 
ber of the community against encroachment by individuals. The limi- 
tations which are imposed upon the activities of individuals are estab- 
lished for the common good of the entire college community. 

Students who are unable to demonstrate that they can accept this 
responsibility or who are antagonistic to the spirit and general purpose 
of The College, or who fail to abide by the regulations established by 
The College may be dismissed or requested to leave The College at any 
time during the academic year. 

REGULATIONS

Announcements during the academic year may amend or supple- 
ment the catalogue regulations. 



ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES 

The position of Lycoming College regarding the use of alcoholic 
beverages by its campus constituency is based upon the official position 
of The Methodist Church, which is stated in Paragraph 2022 of the 
Discipline of The Methodist Church, 1960 edition, and upon the 
premise that any activity not contributing constructively to the devel- 
opment of a mature citizen in the college community is inconsistent 
with the aims and ideals of The College. 

Specific rules and regulations regarding the use of alcoholic bev- 
erages are based on the above statement and are consistent with the 
statutes of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in regard to the pur- 
chase and use of alcoholic beverages by persons under 21 years of age. 

The following situations may result in dismissal from The College 
or other disciplinary action: 

1. The possession and/or use of alcoholic beverages inside any Col- 
lege building, or on College property, including the storage of 
such beverages in automobiles on the campus. 

2. The use of alcoholic beverages by women, regardless of age, 
while they are resident students of The College and are not under 
the chaperonage of their parents. 

3. Returning to the campus in an intoxicated condition resulting in 
an inability to control behavior so that it is acceptable at all 
times. 

4. The illegal purchase or consumption of alcoholic beverages by 
male students of the college under 21 years of age. 

5. The provision of alcoholic beverages by legally qualified male 
student purchasers to students under 21 years of age. 

6. The possession and/or use of alcoholic beverages at any social 
function sponsored by The College or any organization of stu- 
dents, regardless of location. 

7. The rental and/or use of non-college facilities where alcoholic 
beverages are present and/or are consumed by the students pres- 
ent. This includes party rooms, cabin parties, picnics, etc. 

8. Any situation resulting in behavior reflecting discredit upon The 
College which has resulted from the consumption of alcoholic 
beverages. This includes public intoxication, situations where 
police are involved, or where public notice is attracted and re- 
ported to College officials. 



Programs and Rules 61 

9. Any situation not covered specifically under the above regulations 
which indicates that the students are deliberately seeking to avoid 
the responsibility for the violation of regulations by individuals 
or groups. 

10. Any violation of the Liquor Control Act, as amended, of the Com- 
monwealth of Pennsylvania. 

These rules and regulations have been formulated for the protec- 
tion of the reputation and the well-being of The College community. 
Their observance is expected of every student of Lycoming College. 
It is assumed that a willingness to observe these regulations is implicit 
in the acceptance of membership in the Lycoming College community.

by the Registrar's office, and all those resident male students on aca- 
demic probation may not operate or have in their possession in Wil-

furniture.

vacation periods when the dormitories are closed and no later than 24

Each student entering The College is required to submit a medical 
history record and a physical examination form prior to arriving on 
the campus. The parent or guardian of each student under 21 years 
of age must sign the health record which authorizes the College health 
authorities to give emergency medical treatment according to good 
medical practice. In the event an operation or other treatment is 
required for a serious accident or illness, the College Physician will 
always secure prior parental consent if the circumstances permit. 

Exemption from participation in physical activity associated with 
Physical Education may be granted only by the College Physician. 
This exemption is based upon the medical history, report of the stu- 
dent's physician, and a physical examination by the College Physician. 



INFIRMARY SERVICE 

The College maintains an Infirmary which is staffed on a seven- 
day week, twenty-four-hour day basis with Registered Nurses. The 
College Physician is on call when needed. Normal medical treatment

However, overnight bed care, special medications, x-rays, surgery, 
care of major accidents, immunizations, examinations for glasses, 
Physician's calls other than in the Infirmary, and special nursing ser- 
vice, etc., are not included in the Infirmary service which is provided

This charge is covered under the Accident and Sickness Insurance 
Program of The College. 

ACCIDENT AND SICKNESS INSURANCE 

All resident students are required to purchase the Accident and 
Sickness Group Insurance plan of The College for the academic year, 
unless they can present evidence that they are covered under some 
other health insurance program. Non-resident students may participate 
in the College Group Insurance Plan on a voluntary basis. If a student 
becomes ineligible under another plan because of age, he must enter 
the College Program in the semester in which he loses his other cover- 
age. The Insurance Plan will also be available for a twelve-months'

The Alumni Association 



The Alumni Association of Lycoming College has a living member- 
ship of almost five thousand men and women. It is governed by an 
Executive Board of five officers and twenty-one members nominated 
and elected by the membership. It elects annually a member to the 
Board of Directors of the College for a three-year term. The Assistant 
to the President of the College directs the activities of the Alumni 
Office. 

The Alumni Association of Lycoming College has two objectives: 
(1) to promote the interests of the College, and (2) to foster among 
its members loyalty and devotion to their alma mater. All persons 
who have successfully completed one year of study at Lycoming Col- 
lege, or Williamsport-Dickinson Junior College, and all former students 
of Williamsport-Dickinson Seminary are members of the Association. 

The Alumni Office is located in room 208 on the second floor of 
Old Main. Arrangements for Homecoming, Alumni Day, Class Re- 
unions, Club meetings and similar activities are coordinated through 
this office. There are active Alumni Clubs in Harrisburg, Philadelphia, 
and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Rochester, New York; and Northern 
New Jersey. 

Lycoming College holds Class A, B, and C memberships in the 
American Alumni Council. Through its Alumni Fund, the Alumni Of- 
fice is closely associated with the Development Program of the College. 

Acting as the representative of alumni on the campus, and working 
also with undergraduates, the Alumni office aids in keeping alumni in- 
formed and interested in the program, growth and activities of the 
College. 

Communications to the Alumni Association should be addressed 
to the Alumni Office.
