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, 

aflRrming the Christian faith as a vahd 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 Tlie 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.

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 153 
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 dirough what are now recognized as the elementary grades. Widi 
the advent of pubhc schools in the city, the Academy expanded its cur- 
ricular offerings to include high school and college preparatory work. 

In 1848, under die 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 Williamsport Dickinson 
Junior College. Dtning 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 die area's young men and women. Tlirougli fulfillment of its 
specific objectives, it has been and continues to be an influential voice in 
the educational, cultural and spiritual development of die entire north 
central Pennsylvania region.

Locali 



Lycoming College is situated upon a slight prominence in downtown 
Williamsport, Pennsylvania, overlooking the beautiful West Branch Valley 
of the Susquehanna River. The cit>- has a population of some forty-five 
thousand who consider The College one of its finest assets. 

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

The area around \^'illiamsport 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 Festixal 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 appro.ximately two-hundred miles from die major urban cen- 
ters of the region: Washington, D. C, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, 
Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. The cit>' is easily accessible 
by airline, train, bus and automobile. Allegheny, United and Trans World 
Airlines provide seventeen flights dail>- with direct passenger service to 
\irtually all Penns>'lvania cities as well as New York, .\lbany. Rochester, 
Buffalo, Boston, Providence, Cleveland, Detroit and \\'ashington, D. C. 
The Pennsylvania Railroad offers daily passenger ser\'ice to Buffalo, Harris- 
burg, and Washington widi connections at Harrisburg to all major cities. 
Greyhound Bus Lines and Ed\\ards Lakes to Sea S>stem operate daily 
schedules to all points. U. S. Higliways 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: growth that continues to meet the demands of our 
changing society and its evolving culture. 

Through more than a century of its histor\-, 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 leaxen 
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 Pennsyhania 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 Catholic 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. B. Rich, for 
ten 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 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.

ACADEMIC PROGRAM 



Ad 



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 its future position. 

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 identity as a small church-related college, 
but large enough to provide quahty 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 diat, 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 prep- 
aration: graduation from an approved school with sixteen academic units 
including four units of English, at least two units of one foreign language, 
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 die 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: 

16 



Admissions 17 

1. Application for Admission and secondary school record on forms 
supplied by the College. A registration fee of $15.00 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 e.xaminations no later than February of their senior year. 
Although not officially a requirement, candidates are encouraged to submit 
die 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. Candidates are requested to visit the campus and to meet with the 
Director of Admissions or a representative of the Admissions Office. This 
time provides an ox^portunity 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 
e.xpect to hear from the committee sometime after March 15, but before 
Aprill. 

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 die Director of Admissions to notify Well qualified candidates at the 
beginning of their senior year in high school diat their admission to the 
college is assured upon graduation. Further information concerning the 
Early Decision Plan can be obtained from the Director of Admissions.

ADVANCED STANDING BY 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 BY TRANSFER 

Transfer students whose records are satisfactory in all respects may apply 
for advanced standing. Those who apply should follow the application pro- 
cedure described previously, and in addition, should submit a transcript 
of previous college work, letters of reference from both the Academic and 
Personnel Deans of the college and evidence of honorable dismissal. 

A student admitted with advanced standing is required to complete 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 of the graduation 
requirements of Lycoming College. 

If an interview is to be required, you will be notified and a mutually 
convenient time will be arranged. 

A procedure list to be followed by transfer students when applying for 
admission will be sent upon request. 



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 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.

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. 

20 



Standards 21 

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

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 reser\'es 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 instruc- 
tors have the privilege of establishing reasonable absence regulations in 
any given course. Responsibility 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 trutlis 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 truths. 



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. 



22 



Decree Programs 23 

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 facult)' advisor, will be permitted for e.xceptional 
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 pro\'ided for the gifted student to probe somewhat 
more deeply into his major. A series of ad\anced le\el courses open onl\' 
to qualified junior and senior students with consent of the department head 
or instructor shall be made available in each department ofi^ering 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 ofiFered in each subject as follows: 

Accounting Mathematics 

Art Music 

Biology Philosophy 

Business Administration Physics 

Chemistry Pohtical Science 

Economics Psychology 

Enghsh Religion 

French Russian 

German Sociology and Anthropology 

History Spanish 

International Relations Theatre 



24 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 

Geolog)' Speech 

Greek Statistics 
Italian 

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 imolving advanced work in both departments, supple- 
mented by course elections from other departments that will contribute 
significantly. Appro\'al to follow majors of this nature must be secured 
from the facultv 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 facult>' advisor is always 
sought in determining which courses will properly support the major. 

THE DISTRIBUTION 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 tlie 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 



Degree Programs 25 

task suggested by these characteristics places unusual stresses on the educa- 
tional program of any Christian liberal arts college. Ne\'ertheless, L\'coming 
accepts the responsibilities of the challenge. It does so by requiring that 
students pass at least one year ( two unit courses ) of collegiate le\'el 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 have achieved a sufficiently high score 
in the ETS Advanced Placement Test in English 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 le\el in the selected language 
will be determined by the faculty members of the Foreign Language 
Department. Determination of the appropriate course le\el is based upon 
a review of the student's record including high school grades, scores on the 
College Board Achie\'ement 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 as detenuined by Placement Tests. 

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



26 Lycoming College Bulletin 

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 ha\e 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 (t^vo unit courses) in one of the following: (a) Economics, (b) 
Histor\'. (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 de\elopment 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 diat support the major 
as well as those that effectively meet the requirements of the College's ob- 
jecti\'es 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. 



Decree Programs 27 

Studies 

INDEPENDENT STUDY. Each department granting a major provides 
opportunity to students to work independently. Upon consent of the depart- 
ment head, and the instructor, a student may register for courses in in- 
dependent study. Nonnally, the opportimity for such study is provided for 
the better quahfied major student who has successfully completed the courses 
making up the core of his major program. Except under unusual circum- 
stances, registration for the studies course is limited to one unit course dur- 
ing 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 Indepen- 
dent 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 e.xceptional students 
interested in subjects or topics not usually a part of departmental course 
offerings. Establishment of the seminar and admission of students depends 
upon the approval of the department involved. Occasionally, Visiting Pro- 
fessors, Lectvirers, or Specialists in Residence \\ill offer such seminar studies. 
Students who are privileged to elect Seminar Study in any department regis- 
ter for courses numbered 31-32, Studies, with an appropriate title to be en- 
tered upon the student's permanent record. Enrollment in seminar courses 
is limited to ten students. 

DEPARTMENTAL HONORS. \\'hen a student desires to enter an 
Honors program and secures departmental approval to apply, a facult\- 
committee shall be con\'ened whose initial responsibility shall be to pass 
upon the student's eligibility to enter the program. The Committee responsi- 
bility shall also include the direction of the study, and final e\aluation of 
its worth. The committee shall be composed of two faculty members from 
the student's major department, one of whom shall be the faculty member 
under whose immediate supervision the study is performed, and one mem- 
ber from each of two other departments related to the subject matter of 
the study. Committee members shall be selected from among the faculty 
members who are personally acquainted with the applicant's abilities. Selec- 
tion of persons to serve on the committee is made by the head of the appli- 
cant's major department, after consultation with the heads of other depart- 
ments invoh'ed. Usually the honors program involves independent study in 
two consecutive unit courses. In order that a student be privileged to 
register for three or more unit courses in Honors in his total college program. 



28 Lycoming College Bulletin 

approval of the Faculty Committee on Instruction must be secured. Students 
who are privileged to elect Honors register for courses numbered 41-42. 

Honors study is expected to result in the completion of a tliesis to be 
defended in a final oral e.xamination. Acceptable theses shall be deposited 
in the College Library. Successful completion of the Honors program 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 reregistered in 
Studies and given a final grade for the course. 

EXTRA-MUHAL StXJDIES 

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

WASHINGTON SEMESTER. Upon recommendation of the faculty of 
die 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 
firsthand acquaintance with 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 luue special interests in Political 
Science, Law and American Go\'ernment. 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 ma\' be permitted to attend Drew Uni\'ersit\', Madison, 
New Jersey, for a period of one full semester. The United Nations Semester 
is intended to provide a firsthand acquaintance with the United Nations, 
New York City, as well as an academic experience equi\'alent to the normal 
four unit courses. This program is open to selected students who have 
special interests in \\'orld History, International Relations, Law, and Poli- 
tics. Ordinarily, only junior students are eligible. 

JUNIOR YEAR ABROAD. Under the au.spices of approved uni\ersities 
or agencies, a student may be pri\ileged to spend one or two semesters 
of his junior year in a foreign universit\'. The program has seemed to be 
especially attracti\'e 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 a\ailable 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 tvvo 
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 achiexe 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 civilization in prep- 
aration for graduate work, the Christian ministry, ci\il or foreign ser\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. Howe\er, 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 

29

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 gixen 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 University: 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 31 

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, 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 t\vo 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 e.xpect 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. Fre-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 that all such requirements can be fitted properly 
into his curriculum at Lycoming College. Consistent with suggestions of the 
medical colleges, a vdde 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.

PREPARATION FOR THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY 

(Christian Ministry) 

Young men and women called to tlie Christian ministry or related voca- 
tions will find the pre-ministerial curriculum at Lycoming College an excit- 
ing and challenging opportimity. 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, 
the historical development of Christianit>', 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 Religion 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 
in a subject matter field.

Curricula 35 

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 is not designed to be vocational or narrowly pre-professional. 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 fac- 
ing business e.xecuti\'es, 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 indi\'idual course areas. 



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 
die public treasury; independent colleges achieve this by voluntary contri- 
butions supplemented by income from their inxested 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 
le\el consistent with adequate facilities and competent instruction. 

Tuition at Lycoming is $600 per semester, plus certain fees which are 
listed on the following pages. The room expense for boarding students 
amounts to $225.00 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. Howe\er, in the event such permission 
is granted, the room cost will be 50" higher than die above rates. If a 
student requests the use of a double room as a single room and the room 
is a\ ailable, he will be charged 50% more than regular rates. 

The tuidon charged covers the regular or prescribed course of study 
which nomially comprises four subjects. 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 $15.00 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 deposit is 
evidence of the applicant's good intention to matriculate and is applicable

is not refundable. 

All returning students are required to pay a deposit of $50.00 on or

Activities Building. Books and supplies are purchased by the individual 
student. The estimated cost is appro.ximately $75.00 per year, but will vary 
somewhat in accordance with tlie course of study which the student is 
pursuing. The bookstore is open registration day and daih' thereafter.

concerning partial payments may be obtained from the Treasurer or Direc- 
tor of Admissions. 

WITHDRAWALS AND REFUNDS 

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

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 an\- reason whatever. 



Expenses 41 

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 obhgations 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 die 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 dieir efforts to obtain a college education. 
This assistance may take any one, or any combination, of die following 
forms: (1) Scholarships, (2) Grants-in-aid, (3) Loans, (4) Workships. 

The estabhshment 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 tlie receipt of the award during succeeding years, a cum- 
ulative average of B plus must be maintained together with satisfactory 
campus citizenship. 



42 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 
S5-864).

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.

CAMPUS LIFE 



Religious Life 



The opportunity to develop and practice the Christian philosophy of 
Hfe is accomphshed: 

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 tlie Religious Life Council. 

through the Religious Life Council, the student organization which 
co-ordinates religious groups on the campus.. It is composed of repre- 
sentatives from all student religious organizations, Student Govern- 
ment, Faculty, Administration, and the local clergy. Early in the second 
semester the Council sponsors a week of religious emphasis. Students 
and faculty discuss together common problems in some aspect of re- 
ligious experience with the objective of stimulating interest throughout 
the campus community. 

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 the Canterbury Club ( Episcopal ) , die Presbyterian Fellowship, 
the Lutheran Student Association, the Roger Wilhams 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. 



46 



Religious Life 47 

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. 

The College considers one of its responsibilities to be the encouragement 
of as many difiFerent 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- 



48 Lycoming College Bulletin 

mittee is responsible for appro\'ing 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. 

Homecoming and Spring Week-end are major social activities under 
the sponsorship of Student Council. Each of these week-ends features a 
major dance 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 the 
Associated Women Students. Each operates under limited authority in 
situation 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 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. 

STUDENT UNION 

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 serv'ices to 
the campus include poster making, publicity, and a travel board. The 
Student Union Board is responsible for the entire Student Union Program. 
It sponsors dances, lectures, picnics, tours, concerts, inter-collegiate mixers, 
films, tournaments, recreational activities, dancing, bridge, skiing, and life 
saWng courses, coffee hours, and provides an informal place for students 
to gather. 

Programs presented in the past include Ogden Nash, Carey McWil- 
liams. The Ri\erside Chamber Singers, the New York Baroque Ensemble, 



Religious Life 49 

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, the Lycoming Student Union oflFers students 
a real opportunity to learn while serving the campus. 

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 community. 

The Bell, ofiBcial student newspaper published weekly, is devoted

Pennsylvania Folklore Society, a scholarly organization founded in 1920 
for the purpose of collecting, preserving, and disseminating knowledge 
about Pennsyh'ania folklore. The College and the Society publish jointly 
a quarterly journal, the Keystone Folklore Quarterly, which is sent to 
individual and institutional subscribers throughout the United States and 
Canada. 

CAMPUS CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS 

A variety of organizations on the campus provides opportimities 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 afiFairs; the Student

Programs and Rules 



ORIENTATION 

The orientation program at Lycoming College is designed to help the 
student entering college for the first time to start this new adventure under 
the most favorable circumstances. An entirely new concept of courses, 
class scheduling, and methods of instruction must be assimilated. Adjust- 
ment to this new experience is important. 

In order to prepare for the beginning of this experience, Lycoming 
schedules seven orientation sessions each lasting two and one half days 
during the summer. Each new student is required to attend one of these 
sessions accompanied by at least one parent. 

The summer program makes it possible to schedule ample time for 
academic advisement, placement testing, library orientation, and registration. 
The College is able to work more satisfactorily with new students in planning 
programs of study tailored to each student's vocational and academic in- 
terests. Each new student completes all preliminaries, including registration, 
during the summer orientation period. Textbooks are available for purchase 
and perusal prior to the opening of classes in the Fall. 

Information regarding the dates of orientation sessions, a typical sched- 
ule and a pre-registration form are mailed to each new student admitted to 
Lycoming College. 



FRESHMAN CUSTOMS 

Certain traditions and customs ha\e 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

College community. The customs freshmen will be expected to observe are

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

DISCIPLINE 

The College expects all of its students to accept the responsibility 
required of citizens in a free democratic society. The rules and regulations 
of The College are designed to protect the rights of every member of the 
community against encroachment by individuals. The limitations which 
are imposed upon the activities of individuals are established for the com- 
mon good of the entire college community'. 

Students who are unable to demonstrate that they can accept this 
responsibility or are antagonistic to the spirit and general purpose of 
The College, or fail to abide by the regulations established by The College

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 abo\'e statement and are consistent with the statutes of 
the Commonwealth of Penns\l\ania 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 propert\-, including the storage of such bever- 
ages in automobiles on the campus.

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.

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 Pennsyh'ania. 

These rules and regulations ha\'e been formulated for the protection

The Alumni Association 



The Alumni Association of Lycoming College has a living membership 
of over 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 tliree-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 de\'0tion 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 ofBce. 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 representatix-e of alumni on the campus, and working also 
with undergraduates, die Alumni Office aids in keeping alumni informed 
and interested in die program, growth and activties of the College. 

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