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 pro- 
vides basic knowledge of the cultural, social and natural world, 

developing searching, critical, and creative attitudes of mind, encourag- 
ing cultural explorations essential to a free society, 

affirming the Christian faith as a valid interpretation of the vocation 
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 founda- 
tions laid by a strong liberal education. 

"Vocation of humanity" suggests that the primary concern of The Col- 
lege is human life and living. We find this concern manifesting itself, in a 
Christian setting, as an affirmation of the fundamental dignity 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 wis- 
dom, knowledge, and understanding born of liberal education. 



10 



History 



While the specific objectives of The College have varied somewhat 
with the changing years, its purpose of providing educational opportunities 
for young men and women has remained consistent throughout the 152 
years of its history. 

Founded in 1812 as Williamsport Academy, it is the oldest educational 
institution in the city of Williamsport. At first, the Academy served only 
the young through what are now recognized as the elementary grades. With 
the advent of public schools in the city, the Academy expanded its cur- 
ricular 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 Seminary con- 
tinued as a private boarding school until 1929 when once again its offerings 
were expanded to include the first two years of college work. This expan- 
sion resulted in a change of the institution's name to Wflliamsport 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 institution. 
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 downtown 
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 its 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-twentiedi century finds the city expanding with many 
widely diversified industries. 

The area around Williamsport is famous for its beautiful mountain 
scenery and fine outdoor recreational facilities. Every year, thousands 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 play- 
grounds. Public education is represented by excellent 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 Community Concert Association. Eighty- 
eight churches representing a number of denominations minister to the 
spiritual needs of the community. 

Within America's industrial Northeast, Williamsport is indeed centrally 
located. It is approximately two-hundred miles from the major urban cen- 
ters 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, Providence, Cleveland, Detroit and Washington, D. C. 
The Pennsylvania Railroad offers daily passenger service to Buffalo, Harris- 
burg, and Washington with connections at Harrisburg to all major cities. 
Greyhound 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 87, 118, 147, and 287. The new 
Interstate Highway 80, The Keystone Shortway, will cross the state just 
a few miles south of Williamsport.

Traditions 



The long and enduring history of Lycoming and the attractive geo- 
graphic 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 characteristic of their college is its amazing 
capacity for growth: growdi 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 con- 
tinuous 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 prac- 
tice of a Christian way of life. 

Lycoming College is owned by the Preacher's Aid Society of The Cen- 
tral 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 Protestant denominations as 
well as the Roman Cadiolic and Hebrew faiths. Significant opportunities 
are offered every student for personal expression of religious faith. Loyalty 
to the church of one's choice is encouraged. 

Lycoming College firmly believes in Christian higher education. One 
of its major objectives is continuous affirmation of the validity of the Chris- 
tian 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 Honorable M. R. Rich, for 
ten years President of the Roard 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 Rody die best in contemporary 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 on a regularly scheduled basis on at 
least fourteen occasions throughout any one college year. 

13 



14 Lycoming College Bulletin 

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 Relig- 
ious 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

missions 



Admission to college today is becoming increasingly competitive and 
undoubtedly it will continue to be so; thus, in this situation, it is for each 
college to define what its future position will be. 

At Lycoming College there is to be an increase in the size of the cam- 
pus, the addition of new facilities, the continuous improvement of the 
faculty, and the development of a larger student body. There is no intent 
to become so large as to lose our identity as a small church-related college, 
but large enough to provide quality education for an increased number of 
students. 

ADMISSION POLICY 

The College Committee on Admissions sets policy and constructs the 
standard to guide the selection of candidates. 

It is the wish of the Committee that, in making selections, emphasis be 
placed upon academic measures as evidenced by school records and exam- 
inations. Strength of character, acceptable social habits, and contributions 
to school and community are other factors considered by the Committee. 

Admission to Lycoming College, in addition to the aforementioned 
criteria, requires the usual evidence of satisfactory secondary school pre- 
paration: graduation from an approved school with 16 academic units 
including four units of English, and at least two units of one foreign lan- 
guage, two units of science, two of history and two of mathematics. 

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

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 a final decision is made: 

18 



Admissions 19 

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 Examination 
Board. Applicants wishing to enter the College in September should arrange 
to take these examinations no later than February of their senior year. 
Although not officially a requirement, candidates are encouraged to submit 
the Writing Sample exercise offered by the College Entrance Examination 
Board. 

Note: The responsibility for arranging to take these examinations rests 
with the applicant. The Office of Admissions, however, will be glad to 
advise any applicant on this matter. 

4. In addition to the above, candidates are requested to visit the cam- 
pus and to meet with the Director of Admissions or a representative of the 
Admissions Office. This conference provides an opportunity for reviewing 
the candidate's credential file, discussing plans, and answering questions. 

SELECTION PROCESS 

Admission to Lycoming College is on a competitive basis and should 
be regarded as selective. Early filing of an application, while encouraged, 
does not assure admission, because applications will be accepted until a 
number large enough to assure a reasonable selection has been received. 

Candidates who have completed applications before March 1, may 
expect to hear from the committee sometime after March 15, but before 
April 1. 

Candidates who complete applications after March 1 may expect to 
hear sometime after April 1. These candidates, even if well qualified 
(especially in the case of women), might necessarily have to be placed on 
a waiting list. 

EARLY DECISION PLAN 

Lycoming College has adopted an Early Decision Plan which will 
permit the Director of Admissions to notify well qualified candidates at the 
beginning of their senior year in high school that their admission to the 
college is assured upon graduation. Further information concerning the 
Early Decision Plan can be obtained from the Director of Admissions. 



20 Lycoming College Bulletin 

ADVANCED PLACEMENT 

Incoming freshmen who have achieved satisfactory scores in the stand- 
ard Advanced Placement Examinations are permitted to enroll in advanced 
courses on the college level during their freshman year. Such students 
receive college credit equal to that assigned to the freshman course which 
is waived. These credits are to be entered upon the students' records without 
the regular tuition charge. Students who offer satisfactory scores in four or 
more Advanced Placement Examinations are admitted to The College as 
sophomores. 

ADVANCED STANDING 

A limited number of students with advanced standing may be admitted 
to Lycoming each year. The earliest correspondence should state that an 
applicant had attended college(s) previously and name the college(s) at- 
tended. The determining factors in considering such applicants will be their 
academic records at the previous college, their field of concentration, and the 
reasons prompting their desire to transfer. Transfer applicants must show 
evidence of honorable dismissal from their previous college(s), must submit 
an official transcript of all work taken at other colleges, and copies of their 
current catalogues. Upon acceptance, the transfer student should contact 
the Dean of the College to arrange a schedule of courses for the coming 
semester. A student admitted with advanced standing is required to com- 
plete his last two years at Lycoming in order to qualify for a bachelor's 
degree. To be awarded a degree, transfer students must satisfy all the 
College's graduation requirements. 



SUMMER ENROLLMENT OF PRE-COLLEGE 
STUDENTS 

By special arrangement, qualified high school students who have com- 
pleted their sophomore, junior or senior years may be admitted to the Col- 
lege's summer program to take certain courses. Such students will receive 
college credit for all work that is passed. Courses especially recommended 
in this program are the college freshman and sophomore courses in foreign 
languages and mathematics. Admission to the sophomore level courses in 
these departments would depend upon previous achievement as deter- 
mined by a qualifying examination administered at the time of registration. 



Admissions 21 

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 written 
evidence stating the field of concentration, degree, and 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 tele- 
phone number is Williamsport 326-1951, Extension 12. 

All applicants are encouraged to visit the Campus to inspect the facil- 
ities of the College and, if possible, to meet with someone from die faculty 
or staff. Visitors, although welcome at anytime, are advised to write or 
call ahead to plan for an interview. 



Standards 



GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

Every degree candidate completes a course of study that consists of 
passing a minimum of thirty (30) unit courses at least 24 of which shall 
have been passed with grades of C or better. The candidate also completes 
a major that consists of passing at least eight (8) unit courses and passes

The final eight units and at least seven additional units to be offered 
for a degree must have been taken at Lycoming College except for students 
in the special curricula involving cooperation with another institution. 

When, in the case of any student, the need for consideration of exemp- 
tions or waivers of specific requirements arises, all such cases are reviewed 
by the Faculty Committee on Academic Standing. No petitions for exemp- 
tions or waivers of requirements are expected for any graduation require- 
ments save the occasional request for release from the requirement speci- 
fying that the final eight units shall be taken at Lycoming College. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

The College uses the traditional letter system of grading: A B C D F 

ACADEMIC HONORS 

The Dean's List is issued at the close of each semester in recognition 
of superior scholarship. Students are admitted to the Dean's List when 
they have earned at least two A grades and no grade below B from among 
three or four unit courses taken in any one semester. 

22 



Standards 23 

Students may be awarded the Bachelor of Arts Degree with Honors 
only when 24 or more unit courses have been taken at Lycoming College. 

Bachelor of Arts, sumrna cum laude — all unit courses shall have been 
passed with grades of A except two which may have been passed with 
grades of B or one with a grade of C. 

Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude — at least one-half of all unit 
courses shall have been passed with grades of A, the remainder to have 
been passed with grades of B or equivalent (one A for every C). 

Bachelor of Arts, cum laude — at least one-fourth of all unit courses 
shall have been passed with grades of A, the remainder to have been passed 
with grades of B or equivalent (one A for every C). 

High quality scholarship is also recognized by the election of students 
to membership in The Sachem, Gold Key, Blue Key and Phi Alpha Theta. 

ACADEMIC STANDING 

Freshmen are admitted to sophomore standing when they have passed 
a minimum of six unit courses, four with grades of C or better.

minimum of 14 unit courses, eight with grades of C or better. 

Juniors are admitted to senior standing when they have passed a min- 
imum of 22 unit courses, 16 with grades of C or better. 

When students are not making satisfactory progress, as described above, 
within the normal eight (8) semesters of college work, their cases are re- 
viewed by the Faculty Committee on Academic Standing. Continuing 
unsatisfactory progress shall be just cause for dismissal from college. 

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 diere is value in class attendance for all students. Individual instruc- 
tors have the privilege of establishing reasonable absence regulations in 
any given course. Besponsibility for learning and observing these regula- 
tions rests with the student. 



Degree Programs 



BASIC CONCEPTS IN LIBERAL EDUCATION. From among the 
many valid approaches to fulfillment of collegiate aims and objectives, 
Lycoming has selected fresh interpretations of some old and honorable 
concepts: That education is continuous accrual of knowledge and wisdom; 
that human knowledge of truths has been accrued chiefly by means of in- 
vestigations into specific areas of possible inquiry; that the traditional liberal 
arts are the great and fundamental reservoirs of these truths; and that 
teacher and students together provide the best opportunity for transmitting 
these trudis. 



DEPARTMENTAL STRUCTURE. In redefining its collegiate charac- 
ter, Lycoming recognizes the validity of cataloguing knowledge into specific 
categories in order that learning may be transmitted more readily. Courses 
offered by the College are organized therefore, by departments patterned 
after the traditional liberal arts and sciences. In many instances, these de- 
partments carry the same names as courses taken in the high school. So it 
is that college students may continue to deepen interests in well-known 
subjects, but at the same time, they are expected to increase the scope of 
their intellectual development by electing courses in other departments 
with less familiar titles. 



UNIT COURSE. Lycoming also recognizes the validity of conveying 
knowledge and wisdom by means of the traditional course offering. It has 
reinterpreted the traditional course to mean a single unit of academic work 
consisting of teaching and learning in classroom experiences for approximate- 
ly four hours each week for a semester. Thus, all courses offered by the 
College are unit courses, each carrying identical credit, each making similar 
demands in time and effort upon the student. Normally, four unit courses 
will be elected during any one semester. One unit course may be elected 
during each of the three four-week summer sessions. 



24 



Degree Programs 25 

THE MAJOR 

New interpretations of the traditional departmental approach to learn- 
ing involve increasing emphases upon deepened interests and scholastic 
opportunities in a single department referred to as The Major. 

College standards demand that all students pass at least eight specified 
unit courses in the major. Courses numbered 1-8 in most departments will 
compose the normal sequence of major courses. However, some deviation, 
with consent of the faculty advisor, will be permitted for exceptional 
students. 

The eight units making up the core of the major program are the 
suggested minimum. Many students will be satisfied with this minimum, 
but ample opportunity is provided for the gifted student to probe somewhat 
more deeply into his major. A series of advanced level courses open only 
to qualified junior and senior students with consent of the department head 
or instructor shall be made available in each department offering a major. 
The specific subjects selected for such advanced studies may be highly 
diversified, and may take the form of independent study, honors, seminars, 
fundamental research or small classes informally organized. It is under- 
stood that all such courses shall normally be one unit courses. 

Selection of a major is entirely at the discretion of the student. The 
choice is governed by some important factors such as vocational aims, apti- 
tudes and interests. Whatever the reason, the student should, by the close 
of his freshman year, have selected a major. In some instances, it is possible 
to defer this decision until the end of the sophomore year but any further 
postponement is likely to mandate some additional summer work in order 
to complete the major on schedule. 

The number of departments offering majors to Lycoming College 
students is not extensive. However, all the departments encompassing the 
great liberal traditions are represented. At least eight unit courses (suffi- 
cient for a major) are offered in each subject as follows: 

Accounting Mathematics 

Art Music 

Biology Philosophy 

Business Administration Physics 

Chemistry Political Science 

Economics Psychology 

English Religion 

French Russian 

German Sociology and Anthropology 

History Spanish 

International Relations 



26 Lycoming College Bulletin 

Some courses are also offered in subjects in which a major is not 
available. These courses are normally elective, but in some instances, they 
may be used to fulfill supporting or distribution course requirements. 

Czech Latin 

Education Law 

Geology Speech 

Greek Statistics 

Italian Theatre 

Occasionally, students may be privileged to pursue a kind of academic 
major that cuts across the more traditional departmental major. Such a 
program is the major in American Civilization, where students may, with 
consent of the Chairmen of the History and English departments, organize 
a course of studies involving advanced work in both departments, supple- 
mented by course elections from other departments that will contribute 
significantly. Approval to follow majors of this nature must be secured 
from the faculty committee on instruction. 

COURSES SUPPORTING THE MAJOR 

The special fields of human inquiry show clear evidence of interde- 
pendence. Knowledge in some academic departments may be considerably 
enhanced by knowledge obtained from another. For example, knowledge 
of chemistry is unquestionably supported and enhanced by knowledge of 
fundamental concepts of mathematics. It is for this reason that a student's 
educational program shall include a number of unit courses from depart- 
ments other than the major. Counsel of the faculty advisor is always 
sought in determining which courses will properly support the major. 

THE DISTRIRUTION REQUIREMENTS 

The major and its supporting courses are inseparably entwined within 
the heart of Christian liberal education. In some degree, the educational 
objectives of a college, particularly that of depth in a subject, might be 
fulfilled by the satisfaction of major and supporting course requirements. 
But the truly liberally educated Christian has something more than depth 
in a subject can provide. His aesthetic and literary tastes are cultivated, 
his perception of the environment is unmasked, his conscience is quickened 
in the light of the world's problems, his sensitivity to cultural change is 
honed to a new sharpness, and his awareness of the ethical and religious 
implications of his personal behavior is deepened. The magnitude of the 
task suggested by these characteristics places unusual stresses on the educa- 



Degree Programs 27 

tional program of any Christian liberal arts college. Nevertheless, Lycoming 
accepts the responsibilities of the challenge. It does so by requiring that 
students pass at least one year ( two unit courses ) of collegiate level work in 
each of the following areas or groups of departments. Courses that meet 
these distribution requirements are selected by the student in consultation 
with his faculty advisor. 

FRESHMAN ENGLISH. All students are required to pass English 
1-2, Freshman English. Students who, upon entrance, demonstrate unusual 
proficiency may have this requirement waived in favor of English 3-4. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE OR MATHEMATICS. All students are 
required to pass at least one year ( two unit courses ) of second or third 
year Foreign Language or Mathematics. This requirement may be met in 
one of several ways. 

Foreign Language. Students electing to take a foreign language may 
choose from among French, German, Greek, Latin (if offered), Russian or 
Spanish. Placement at the appropriate course level in the selected language 
will be determined by the faculty members of the Foreign Language 
Department. Determination of the appropriate course level is based upon 
a review of the students record including high school grades, scores on die 
College Roard Achievement Tests or scores of similar examinations admin- 
istered by the College. 

A prior record of sufficient quality may enable the student to be entered 
into second or third year courses in a language. In such cases, only one 
year (two unit courses) is required. A record of insufficient quality, or 
the absence of any appropriate language on the high school record will 
cause the student to be entered into a first year language course. In such 
cases, two years (four unit courses) of one language are required. 

Mathematics. Students electing to take mathematics will be placed at 
appropriate levels of competence according to determinations made by 
faculty members of the Department of Mathematics. Students who present 
records of sufficient quality, as determined by College Board Achievement 
Examinations, and high school grades, may be placed in Mathematics 3 or 
4, or Statistics 1-2. In such cases, one year (two unit courses) is required. 
A record of insufficient quality will cause the student to be entered into 
Mathematics 1 or 2. In such cases, one and one-half or two years (three or 
four unit courses) are required. 



28 Lycoming College Bulletin 

RELIGION OR PHILOSOPHY. All students are required to pass one 
year (two unit courses) in one of the following: (a) Philosophy, (b) 
Religion. 

FINE ARTS. All students are required to pass one year (two unit 
courses) in one of the following: 

( a ) Art. Normally, any two courses in art will satisfy this requirement. 

(b) Literature. Students may elect one year of English Literature, 
English 3-4, or one year of a Foreign Language chosen from 
among courses numbered 5-6 or above. 

(c) Music. The basic courses in Music Appreciation, Music 1-2, or 
Music Theory, Music 3-4 will satisfy this requirement. 

(d) Theatre. Theatre 1-2 will satisfy this requirement. However, stu- 
dents who participate in the Summer Theater Workshop have also 
satisfied the fine arts requirement. Courses in basic Speech are 
not applicable toward meeting the requirement in fine arts. 

NATURAL SCIENCE. All students are required to pass one year (two 
unit courses) in one of the following: (a) Biology, (b) Chemistry, (c) 
Geology or (d) Physics. 

HISTORY AND SOCIAL SCIENCE. All students are required to pass 
one year (two unit courses) in one of the following: (a) Economics, (b) 
History, (c) International Relations, (d) Political Science, (e) Psychology 
or (f) Sociology and Anthropology. 



SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS 

The changing nature of American education finds greater emphasis 
than ever before upon the development of significant opportunities for self- 
fulfillment among students. Pertinent educational goals demand that every 
student shall be accorded an opportunity to pursue a program that offers 
him the best chance to realize his intellectual potential. It is for this reason, 
that Lycoming has developed a curriculum that allows a maximum flexibility 
in course selection, especially among those courses that support the major 
as well as those that effectively meet the requirements of the College's ob- 
jectives in liberal education. But wide variety in course selection does not 
always allow as completely individualistic a program as one might wish. 
Therefore, a variety of special educational opportunities are provided. 



Degree Programs 29 

Studies 

INDEPENDENT STUDY. Each department granting a major pro- 
vides opportunity to students to work independently. Upon consent of the 
department head, and the instructor, a student may register for courses in 
independent study. Normally, the opportunity for such study is provided 
for the better qualified major student who has successfully completed the 
courses making up the core of his major program. Except under unusual 
circumstances, registration for the studies course is limited to one unit 
course during each semester. If a student wishes to elect three or more unit 
courses in Studies in his total college program, approval of the Faculty 
Committee on Instruction must be secured. Students who are privileged to 
elect Independent Study in any department register for courses numbered 
31-32, Studies, with an appropriate title to be entered upon the Student's 
permanent record. 

SEMINAR STUDY. The several departments may from time to time 
find it possible to organize small classes or seminars for exceptional students 
interested in subjects or topics not usually a part of the departmental course 
offerings. Permission to enter Studies of this nature must be secured from 
the chairman of the student's major department. Except when the study 
is interdepartmental in nature, registration shall be limited to majors in the 
department. Occasionally, Visiting Professors, Lecturers or Specialists in 
Residence will offer such studies courses. Students who are privileged to 
elect Seminar Study in any department register for courses numbered 31-32, 
Studies, with an appropriate title to be entered upon the student's perma- 
nent record. 

DEPARTMENTAL HONORS. Exceptional students may be invited to 
participate in an honors course. Usually the honors course involves inde- 
pendent study in one unit course in any one semester, but under special 
circumstances students may arrange to devote as much as an entire semester 
or year to independent honors study. In order that a student be privileged 
to register for three or more unit courses in Honors in his total college pro- 
gram, approval of the Faculty Committee on Instruction must be secured. 
For each student entering the honors progam, a special faculty conference 
committee will be appointed to direct the study. Members of the student's 
honors committee will be selected from among the teaching faculty in the 
student's major department, but may also include visitors from die faculties 
of other departments when the nature of the study warrants. Students who 
are privileged to elect Honors register for courses numbered 41-42. 

Honors study is expected to result in the completion of a thesis to be 
defended in a final oral examination. Successful completion of the course 



30 Lycoming College Bulletin 

will cause the designation of honors in the department to be placed upon 
the permanent record and the commencement program. In the event that 
the study is not completed successfully, the student shall be re-registered in 
Studies and given a final grade for the course. 

EXTRA-MURAL STUDIES 

Full college credit will be allowed for satisfactory completion of aca- 
demic work in approved studies programs at other institutions. Such pro- 
grams may be entered into for one semester or one year. Among such 
approved programs are the following: 

WASHINGTON SEMESTER. Upon recommendation of the faculty of 
the Department of Political Science, students may be permitted to attend 
the American University, Washington, D. C, for a period of one full 
semester. The Washington Semester program is intended to provide a 
first hand acquaintance widi various aspects of the nation's capital, as well 
as an academic experience equivalent to the normal four unit courses. This 
program is open to selected students who have special interests in Political 
Science, Law and American Government. Ordinarily, only junior students 
are eligible. 

UNITED NATIONS SEMESTER. Upon recommendation of the 
faculty of the Departments of History, International Relations, or Political 
Science, students may be permitted to attend Drew L'niversity, Madison, 
New Jersey, for a period of one full semester. The United Nations Semester 
is intended to provide a first hand acquaintance with the United Nations, 
New York City, as well as an academic experience equivalent to the normal 
four unit courses. This program is open to selected students who have 
special interests in World History, International Relations, Law and Poli- 
tics. Ordinarily, only junior students are eligible. 

JUNIOR YEAR ABROAD. Under the auspices of approved universities 
or agencies, a student may be privileged to spend one or two semesters 
of his junior year in a foreign university. The program has seemed to be 
especially attractive to students majoring in foreign languages but it is 
entirely possible for other students to participate. A file on opportunities 
within the Junior Year Abroad program is available in the Office of the 
Dean of the College who serves as advisor to the program. 



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 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 32 unit courses (eight semesters of college 
work ) . 

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 established a combined 
English-History curriculum which focuses attention upon American civiliza- 
tion. Here die uniqueness of American democracy, cradled and nurtured 
on diis 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, eight unit courses in English and History. 
Students desiring a thorough background in American eivilizadon in prep- 
aration for graduate work, the Christian ministry, civil or foreign sen-ice 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 matric- 
ulation 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 

31 



32 Lycoming College Bulletin 

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 engineer- 
ing education, Lycoming College offers a cooperative curriculum combining 
the manifold advantages of a small liberal arts college with the training to 
be secured at an engineering school. By arrangement with Bucknell Univer- 
sity and The Pennsylvania State University, the College offers a five-year 
program in which the first three years are spent at Lycoming and the final 
two at the engineering school. Upon completion of the first year at the 
engineering school, the student's record will be sent to Lycoming College. 
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 LTniversity: chemical, civil, electrical, or mechani- 
cal engineering; The Pennsylvania State University: 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 com- 
bines a strong liberal arts and science background with professional train- 
ing in forestry at the Duke School of Forestry, Duke University, Durham, 
North Carolina. 



Curricula 33 

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

Upon satisfactory completion of these three years' work at Lycoming 
College, the student will apply for admission to the Duke School of Forestry 
for one summer and two years of training in forestry. At the end of his first 
year at Duke, his record will be sent to Lycoming College. If the work is 
satisfactory for this fourth year in college, Lycoming will award the Bach- 
elor of Arts degree. Upon the satisfactory completion of the second year in 
forestry school, the professional 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 admission. 
The four-year degree program in pre-law at Lycoming 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 COLLEGE 

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 college 
to which he will apply so diat all such requirements can be fitted properly 
into his curriculum at Lycoming College. Consistent with suggestions of the 
medical colleges, a wide range of subject matter from the humanities, social 
sciences and fine arts is also to be included in the curriculum. Some stu- 
dents 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. 



34 Lycoming College Bulletin 

PREPARATION FOR THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY 

(Christian Ministry) 

Young men and women called to the Christian ministry or related voca- 
tions will find die pre-ministerial curriculum at Lycoming College an excit- 
ing 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. Preparation for seminary includes earning a 
Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in one of a variety of fields such as 
religion, English, history, philosophy and American civilization. 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. 

CURRICULUM IN RELIGION AND 
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 

Any student desiring extensive study in Biblical history and literature, 
die historical development of Christianity, and Christian doctrine, may major 
in religion. A qualified student planning to enter the vocation of religious 
education should, besides majoring in religion, elect five or six unit courses 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 Educational Assistants, or after graduate 
study in a theological seminary, as Directors of Christian Education. Inter- 
ested or prospective students are invited to contact Mr. Neufer of the De- 
partment of Beligion for further information concerning the opportunities, 
responsibilities and requirements of these and other church vocations. 

TEACHER EDUCATION 

Lycoming College trains teachers for both elementary and secondary 
education. The program is clearly identified with the liberal arts nature of 
the College, and hence, no candidate for the profession of teaching is con- 
sidered apart from the total liberal arts objective. Teacher education candi- 
dates meet all general course requirements of the College including a major

THE BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION CURRICULUM 

Lycoming College offers course work in the field of business administra- 
tion particularly designed for training prospective business leaders. The 
three areas of specialization are business administration, accounting, and 
economics. Business is a highly diversified occupation, therefore the cur- 
riculum, with the exception of accounting, is not designed to be vocational 
or narrowly pre-professional. The specific purpose of the accounting major, 
on the other hand, is to train excellent junior accountants, for the successful 
execution of this first position upon graduation is, to all accountants, the 
prime requisite for further professional accomplishment. The purposes of 
the business administration curriculum are to train and to equip the minds 
of men and women to recognize and to solve complex problems facing 
business executives, to develop an appreciation for rigorous analysis, to 
practice the arts of verbal and written communication, and to expose the 
developing mind to as wide as possible a range of course work represented 
by the traditional liberal arts curriculum, to the end that a student becomes 
truly well educated. Considerable flexibility is permissible within the cur- 
riculum and the student is encouraged to pursue course work most reward- 
ing to him. Three years of high school mathematics are recommended for 
preparation. For specific requirements, refer to individual course areas. 



Curricula 37 

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. Three unit courses in biology are required 
as well as one of mathematics. In chemistry, General Chemistry and 
Quantitative Analysis are specified. Three or four years are spent in obtain- 
ing this academic background; the final year is spent in the medical labora- 
tories of an approved hospital. This will consist of an internship of a full 
calendar year at a hospital accredited in the Registry of Medical Tech- 
nologists of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. The College will 
give credit for the year when it is informed that the student has successfully 
passed the examinations given by the Registry of Medical Technologists of 
the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. An official transcript of 
studies completed at the hospital must also be submitted by the candidate.

FINANCIAL 
INFORMATION 



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 contri- 
butions 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 
level consistent with adequate facilities and competent instruction. 

Tuition at Lycoming is $550.00 per semester, plus certain fees which are 
listed on the following pages. The room expense for boarding 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 (die 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 Room, 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 subjects. If a student elects to carry addi- 
tional courses a charge of $137.50 per unit course is levied. Additional de- 
tailed 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 die application, maintaining academic records and is 
non-refundable. 

After a student is notified that he lias been accepted for admission by 
The College, he is required to make a deposit of $50.00. This deposit 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 die 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 registration day and daily thereafter.

PAYMENT OF FEES 

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

Resident Students $975.00 

Non-Resident Students $550.00 

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

PARTIAL PAYMENTS 

For the convenience of those who find it impossible to follow the sched- 
ule of payments as listed, arrangements may be made with the College 
Treasurer for the monthly payment of college fees. Additional information 
concerning partial payments may be obtained from the Treasurer or Direc- 
tor 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, stu- 
dents 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 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 unit course from the original schedule after the first week of 
eidier semester will not justify any claim for refund of tuition charges. 
Written permission to drop the unit course must be obtained from the Dean's 
Office. No refund will be made to those students who are asked to with- 
draw from The College. 

Other fees cannot be refunded for any reason whatever. 



Expenses 43 

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 certifica- 
tion 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 students 
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 recog- 
nize outstanding achievement and to supplement limited resources by pro- 
viding assistance to students in their efforts to obtain a college education. 
This assistance may take any one, or any combination, of the following 
forms: (1) Scholarships, (2) Grants-in-aid, (3) Loans, (4) Workships. 

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 cum- 
ulative grade point average of 3.0 plus must be maintained together with 
satisfactory campus citizenship. 



44 Lycoming College Bulletin 

Grants-In-Aid are awarded annually to students on the basis of a dem- 
onstrated 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 ministerial 
students. Consideration is also given to families with more than one student 
at The College. 

Loans — Student loans are available from the following sources: 

1. Title II of the National Defense Education Act of 1959 (Public Law 
85-864). 

2. The Methodist Church funds are made available in the form of 
Methodist Student Loans. 

3. The Dr. and Mrs. R. F. Rich Loan and Prize Fund. The income 
from a capital fund of $10,000 is available for loan. 

4. Donald Robert Aim Memorial Fund in Music. The principal of the 
Memorial Fund is available for loans to worthy students who are 
majoring in music. 

5. The Lambda Chi Alpha Loan Fund. Created by the gift of $500 
from Dean and Mrs. William S. Hoffman, the purpose of the fund is 
to grant loans in small amounts for emergencies where the student is 
able to show immediate need of financial assistance. 

6. The Alumni Loan Fund. A substantial sum is made available from 
alumni gifts. Awards are made on the basis of need and academic 
proficiency. 

Detailed information concerning the above loans is available upon request. 

Workships: Financial assistance is made available to a limited number 
of students annually in both The College and the city by means of gainful 
employment. Workships are generally not available for freshmen.

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-ordinat- 
ing the religious activities of the College and provides 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 responsible 
for co-ordinating religious groups on the campus. It is composed of 
representatives from all student religious organizations, the Student 
Government, Faculty, Administration, and the local clergy. 

through religious organizations which include the Methodist Student 
Movement (meeting weekly at the College Church, Pine Street Meth- 
odist Church, located at the intersection of Pine Street and Edwin 
Street) and the John Wesley Club. Other denominational groups 
include die Canterbury Club (Episcopal), the Presbyterian Fellowship, 
the Lutheran Student Association, the Roger Williams Club (Baptist), 
and the United Campus Christian Fellowship (Disciples, E. U. B., and 
Reformed). 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 situation 
in which learning occurs constructive and positive. The College believes 
that learning is a continuous process that takes place not only in the class- 
room, but also 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 way that 
these activities contribute to the achievement of the objectives of The Col- 
lege, by complementing the academic life of the campus. 

48 



Campus Life 49 

The College considers one of its responsibilities to be the encouragement 
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-governing 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. The College 
aims to utilize students in as many of the leadership positions as possible. 
In doing so, it will give students the opportunity to accept greater responsi- 
bilities, 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 Lycom- 
ing 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 enforce- 
ment is the responsibility of Student Government. Students are employed 
by Student Council to serve as enforcement officers. 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 empow- 
ered 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 concerned 
with specific areas of student life. The Social Calendar-Concessions Com- 
mittee is responsible for approving the scheduling of all social activities 
by student organizations, and awards concessions to 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. 



50 Lycominc College Bulletin 

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 Council, and Associ- 
ated 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 die 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 the 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. 

The Student Union of Lycoming College is a unique organization. It 
is operated by a Board of Students who are selected for membership after 
they have served at least a year in the apprentice program. Its services to 
the campus include poster making, publicity, and a travel board. The 
Student Union Board is responsible for the entire Student Union Program 
operated in the Student Activities Building. It sponsors dances, lectures, 
picnics, tours, concerts, inter-collegiate mixers, films, tournaments, recrea- 
tional activities, dancing, bridge, skiing, and life saving courses, coffee hours, 
and provides an informal place for students to gather. 

Programs presented in the past include Ogden Nash, Carey McWil- 
liams, The Riverside Chamber Singers, the New York Baroque Ensemble, 
and numerous other lecturers and performers. The Inter-Collegiate Music 
Competition attracts groups from colleges throughout New England and 
the Middle Atlantic States. One of the finest gatherings of college musical 
organizations, it provides two nights of the best college student entertain- 
ment available anywhere in the nation. Rapidly growing in stature, groups 
have moved on to the professional field after winning at the IMC. 

A "laboratory for learning" in the truest sense, the Lycoming Student 
Union offers students a real opportunity to learn while serving the campus.

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 orientation meetings, formal 
convocation, registration, and social and recreational 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 for six weeks, covers the various aspects of adjust- 
ment to college, study skills, attitudes, and motivation. 

FRESHMAN CUSTOMS 

Certain traditions and customs have been established for freshmen. 
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 athletics and 
encourages wide participation by its students. It is a member of the 
National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Athletic Intercollegi- 
ate Association, and the Northern Division of the Middle Atlantic Confer-

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, wrestling, swimming, horse- 
shoes, track and field.

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 valuable per- 
sonal relationship, which affords students die 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 Director 
of Admissions 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 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 available 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 businesses 
and industrial associations is kept available. Consultations with the Place- 
ment Director assist students toward wise selection of a profession. Inter-

tatives from companies in which they are interested. 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 con- 
ferences. They also afford the student body a variety of part-time jobs 
during each college session. The Placement Bureau serves as a clearing- 
house for part-time employment and can usually find work for every student 
needing it.

Programs and Rules 61 

Announcements during the academic year may amend or supplement 
the catalogue regulations. 

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES 

The position of Lycoming College regarding the use of alcoholic bev- 
erages 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 development 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 beverages 
are based on the above statement and are consistent with the statutes of 
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in regard to the purchase 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 College 
building, or on College property, including the storage of such bever- 
ages 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 students, regardless 
of location. 

7. The rental and/or use of non-college facilities where alcoholic bever- 
ages are present and/or are consumed by the students present. 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 alcholic beverages. This 
includes public intoxication, situations where police are involved, or 
where public notice is attracted and reported to College officials. 



62 Lycoming College Bulletin 

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 Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania. 

These rules and regulations have been formulated for the protection 
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.

all those resident male students in academic difficulty may not operate or 
have in their possession in Williamsport, or the surrounding area, motor

The Alumni Association 



The Alumni Association of Lycoming College has a living membership 
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 College, 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 Reunions, Club 
meetings and similar activities are coordinated through this office. There 
are active Alumni Clubs in Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and State 
College, Pennsylvania; Northern New Jersey; Rochester and Syracuse, New 
York. 

Lycoming College holds Class A, B, and C memberships in the Ameri- 
can Alumni Council. Through its Alumni Fund, the Alumni Office 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 informed 
and interested in the program, growth and activties of the College. 

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