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 inquii^ 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. 



Lycoming College is situated upon a slight prominence in downtown 
Williamsport, Pennsylvania, overlooking the beautiful West Branch Valley 
of the Susquehanna River. Greater Williamsport has a population of nearly 
seventy-five thousand who consider the college one of its finest assets. 

Williamsport was once the center of the lumbering industry of the north- 
eastern United States and, while vestiges of that enterprise remain, today the 
city is expanding with many widely diversified industries. 

The area around Williamsport is known for its lovely mountain scenery 
and fine outdoor recreational facilities. Yearly thousands are attracted to 
the woods and crystal-clear streams where hunting and fishing are unsur- 
passed. The city has two large parks, a municipal golf course, tennis courts 
and numerous playgrounds. Public education is represented by excellent 
schools both in the city and in the surrounding townships and boroughs. 
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 centrally located. 
It is approximately two hundred miles from the major urban centers of the 
region: Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Syracuse, Roch- 
ester, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. The city is easily accessible by airline, train, 
bus and automobile. Allegheny Airlines provides daily flights with direct 
passenger service to virtually all Pennsylvania cities as well as to New York, 
Buffalo, Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Hartford, Newport News, and Wash- 
ington. The Pennsylvania Railroad offers daily passenger service to Buffalo, 
Harrisbiug, 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) crosses the state just a few 
miles south of Williamsport. 


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 155 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 




l:''. .<;>'£S 





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 Williamsport Dickinson 
Junior College. During its years as a junior college under President John 
W. Long, the institution forged a strong academic reputation, strengthened 
its faculty and expanded its physical plant. 

Increasing national demands for higher education following World 
War II prompted another significant step in the growth of the institution. 
In 1948, the junior college became Lycoming, a four-year degree-granting 
college of liberal arts and sciences. It is approved to grant baccalaureate 
degrees by the Pennsylvania State Department of Public Instruction. It is 
accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary 
Schools and the University Senate of The Methodist Church. It is a member 
of the Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Universities, the National 
Association of Schools and Colleges of The Methodist Church, the Associ- 
ation of American Colleges, and the National Commission on Accrediting. 

The name Lycoming is derived from an Indian word "lacomic" meaning 
"Great Stream." It is a name that has been common to north central Penn- 
sylvania 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 con- 
tinues to be an influential voice in the educational, cultural and spiritual 
development of the entire north central Pennsylvania region. 


The long history of Lycoming and the attractive geographic setting com- 
bine to provide fertile ground for the seeds of enriching expansion, one of 
the college's major traditions. Alumni nostalgically remember Old Main 
and other buildings from the past, but what is most characteristic of their 
college is its amazing capacity for growth that continues to meet the demands 
of our changing society and its evolving culture. 

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


Lycoming College is owned by the Preachers' Aid Society of The Central 
Pennsylvania Annual Conference of The Methodist Church. Faculty and 
students express their religious convictions through membership and partic- 
ipation in nearly thirty Protestant denominations as well as the Roman 
Catholic and Hebrew faiths. Significant opportunities are offered every stu- 
dent for personal expression of religious faith. 

Lycoming College firmly believes in Christian higher education. One of its 
major objectives is continuous affirmation of the validity of the Christian 
faith as a way of life. Fulfillment of this objective is accomplished by the 
support of a strong Dejiartment of Religion. This department was estab- 
lished 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 offered by the weekly 
chapel program which brings to the campus outstanding religious leaders 
who share with the student body contemporary religious thinking. Attend- 
ance at chapel is required of all students who are enrolled full-time. They 
are expected to attend chapel on at least four occasions each semester. 

Dr. D. Frederick Wertz, 







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

At Lycoming College there is to be an increase in the size of the campus, 
the addition of new facilities, the continuous improvement of the faculty, 
and the development of a larger student body. The intent is to provide 
a quality education for an increased number of students, while maintaining 
identification as a small church related college. 

Admission Policy 

The College Committee on Admissions sets policy and recommends the 
standard to guide the selection of candidates. Admission is regarded as 
selective and is on a competitive basis. 

In making selections emphasis is placed upon academic measures as evi- 
denced by school records and examinations. Consideration is given to 
subjects studied, classroom achievement, relative rank in class, differences 
among schools, counselor's recommendation and Scholastic Aptitude Test 

Attention is given to qualities of character and leadership, in addition to 
activities and interests in school and community. 

Academic Requirements 

1. Graduation from an approved secondary school with sixteen or more 
academic units, counting grades nine through twelve, including four 
units of English, at least two of a foreign language, three of science, two 
of history, and three of mathematics.* 

2. Scores on the College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test considered accept- 
able in light of other academic information. 

Selection Process 

Applications are accepted until March 1, after which the selection process 
begins. Criteria have been established to identify well qualified candidates 
who are sincerely motivated to high academic performance. 

*Music majors must provide a letter of recommendation from the applicant's private 
teacher and/or high school music supervisor. 


Although it might seem, with the emphasis placed on test scores, class 
rank, and other statistical information, that numbers are all important, 
this premise is not entirely so. Many hours are devoted to reading appli- 
cations, personal recommendations, counselor's evaluations and other avail- 
able information. In addition, phone calls and letters are frequently 
exchanged in an effort to discern the qualities in an applicant which play 
an important part in the success of a student at Lycoming. Each candidate 
is carefully considered in a very personal way. 

Candidates are notified of the committee's decision sometime after March 
15, but before April 1. Those selected are required to pay a SlOO fee. This 
amount is not an extra charge but is used to reserve a space at the college 
for the fall and each succeeding semester. It will be applied toward the 
charges of the last semester in residence, normally the semester prior to 
giaduation. Should the student decide to transfer or otherwise terminate 
his enrollment at Lycoming College prior to giaduation this fee may be 
refunded. Refund must be requested before the end of the eighth week of 
the last semester in residence. 

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. To be considered under 
the early decision plan, a candidate must complete application requirements 
before December 1. Candidates accepted in this category will be notified by 
December 29 and will be required to pay a $100 fee. 

Early Notific.\tion. Appraisal of an applicant's credentials will be sent 
(approximately 15 days following written request) to candidates who desig- 
nate Lycoming as first preference. 

Application Procedure 

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

2. The Admissions Office compiles a personal folder for each applicant 
and the following items must be submitted before a candidate is con- 
sidered for admission. These items should be received at the college 
before March 1. 

a. A completed application for admission and secondary school record. 

b. A recent photograph (approximately 2"X 3"). 

c. A fee of §15 which is a processing charge and is not refundable. 

d. Confidential reports from the two persons listed as references in 
the application. 

Note: Forms are supplied by the college for items a and d. 

e. Scholastic Aptitude Test scores of the College Entrance Examina- 
tion Board. Results from the test written during the senior year are 
preferred. Results from the test written during the junior year may 
be accepted for early decision candidates. 


Note: It is recommended that candidates who write achievement 
tests have the results reported. 
3. Candidates are invited to visit the campus and to meet with the 
Director of Admissions or a representative of the Admissions Office. 
This time provides an opportunity for reviewing the candidate's cre- 
dential file, discussing plans, and answering questions. 

Advanced Standing by Placement 

Students entering as freshmen, who have studied an advanced course while 
in secondary school and have taken the appropriate advanced placement 
examination of the College Entrance Examination Board are encouraged 
to apply for credit and placement. A grade of three or above is generally 
consiclered to be satisfactory. 

Grades of the examinations and supporting materials are evaluated in 
deciding whether a candidate is given credit with advanced placement or 
advanced placement only. Credit given is entered upon the students record 
without charge for tuition. 

Students may also receive advanced placement by examinations admin- 
istered at the college during Freshman Orientation Periods. Examinations 
at this time may be taken in foreign languages and mathematics. 

Advanced Standing by Transfer 

Transfer students applying to Lycoming College shall have their records 
evaluated by the Registrar prior to admission. A transfer student must meet 
the minimum requirements for normal progress toward the degree, as de- 
fined for Lycoming College students, in order to be considered for admission. 
A transfer student shall have his class status determined by the number of 
course credit hours in which he was enrolled at the previous institution(s). 

If an interview is to be required, a mutually convenient time will be 

Admission to the Summer Session 

Students who are candidates for degrees at Lycoming College are eligible 
to register for the Summer Session. 

A student who is a candidate for a degree from another college may 
enter the Summer Session upon certification by the dean of that institution 
that the applicant is an enrolled student and that the courses taken at 
Lycoming will be accepted for credit if they are passed with certifying grades. 

Others applying for admission to the Summer Session may be accepted 
only upon presentation of official evidence of preparation to meet the regular 
admissions requirements. An application form is available from the Admis- 
sions Office. A summer school brochure will be available upon request during 
the spring of 1967. 


Admission to Evening School 

Lycoming College offers a number of courses in its evening division. These 
courses are primarily intended for adidts interested in continuing education. 
Recent high school graduates may be considered who meet basically the 
same requirements as candidates for the day division. Specific course require- 
ments may be waived in light of unusual or extenuating circumstances. 

Evening division students apply through the Admissions Office and can 
obtain the necessary forms by contacting the Secretary to the Director of 
Admissions. Students enrolled in the evening division may apply for transfer 
to Lycoming College (day division), and will be considered, individually, 
as are transfer students from other institutions. If admitted, a maximum 
of 60 credits may be applied toward the Bachelor of Arts degree. 

Enrolled students in the evening division may elect to work toward the 
Associate in Arts degree. This is normally a terminal program and is offered 
only by the evening division. Students in this program, if they wish, may 
apply for transfer to the day division as noted above. 

For further information concerning the evening school and a more com- 
plete description of the Associate in Arts degree, interested individuals 
should contact the Dean of the College. 

Admissions Office 

The Admissions Office is located on the campus on the first floor of Old 
Main. The office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 
on Saturdays from 9 a.m. until noon. During June, July, and August, the 
office is closed on Saturdays. 

Individual interviews may be arranged on weekdays from 10 a.m. until 
4 p.m. Small group conferences for interested students and tlieir parents are 
held on Saturdays at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. For an appointment, please write 
or call the Admissions Office. The telephone number is Williamsport 717- 


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 a written 
comprehensive examination in that major field. 


Additional requirements are: 

Two years credit in Physical Education.

The final year and at least one other year to be offered for a degree must 
have been taken at Lycoming College. Requirements for graduation in effect 
at time of admission shall be met within seven (7) years of continuous enroll- 
ment following the date of matriculation. 

When, in the case of any student, the need for consideration of exemptions 
or waivers of specific requirements arises, all such cases are reviewed by the 
Faculty Committee on Academic Standing. 

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. 

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

Bachelor of Arts, siimma cum laiide — all unit courses shall have been 
passed with grades of A except two which may ha\e been passed with grades 
of B or one with a grade of C. 

Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laiide — 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 T}>e 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. 

Sophomores are admitted to junior standing when they have passed a 
minimum of fourteen unit coiuses, eight with grades of C or better. 

Juniors are admitted to senior standing when they have passed a min- 
imum of 22 imit courses, sixteen 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 un- 
satisfactory 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 
there is value in class attendance for all students. Individual instructors have 
the privilege of establishing reasonable absence regulations in any given 
course. Responsibility for learning and observing these regulations rests 
with the student. 


eeree r rograms 

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 edu- 
cation is continuous accrual of knowledge and wisdom; that human knowl- 
edge of truths has been accrued chiefly by means of investigations 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 character, Ly- 
coming recognizes the validity of cataloguing knowledge into specific cate- 
gories 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. In many instances, these departments 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 

Unit Course. Lycoming also recognizes the validity of conveying knowl- 
edge and wisdom by means of the traditional course ofi^ering. It has reinter- 
preted the traditional course to mean a single unit of academic work 
consisting of teaching and learning in classroom, laboratory, tutorial, and 
independent study experiences. Thus, most 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. 

The Major 

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

The normal minimum number of units for the major in each department 
is eight. Many students will be satisfied with this minimum, but ample 
opportunity is provided for the gifted student to probe 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. 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 understood 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 important factors such as vocational aims, aptitudes, and 
interests. Whatever the reason, the student must, by the close of his sopho- 
more year, have selected a major. 

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 (sufficient for 
a major) are offered in each subject as follows: 

Accounting Music 

Art Philosophy 

Biology Physics 

Business .Administration Political Science 

Chemistry Psychology 

Economics Religion 

English Russian 

French Sociology and Anthropology 

German Spanish 

History Theatre 


Some courses are 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 Italian 

Education Law 

Geology Speech 

Greek Statistics 

Courses Supporting the Major 

The special fields of hiunan 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 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 coiuse 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- 
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 10, Rhetoric, 
and English 11, Freshman Literature. Students who have achieved a suffi- 
ciently high score in the ETS Advanced Placement Test in English may 
have the requirement of English 10 and 11 waived. 

Foreign Language or Mathematics 

All students are required to meet a minimum basic requirement in either 
a foreign language or mathematics. 

Foreign Language. Students electing to take a foreign language may 
choose from among French, German, Greek, Russian or Spanish. The student 
is required to pass one year of second or third year language. 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 student's record 
including high school grades, scores on the College Board Achievement 
Tests, or scores of similar examinations administered by the college. 

A prior record of sufficient quality may enable the student to be entered 
into intermediate or advanced 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 an elementary language course. In such 
cases, two years (four unit courses) of one language are required. 

Mathematics. Students electing the mathematics option will be given a 
placement test. According to the results of the test the student may satisfy this 
requirement in one of the following ways: 

a) Mathematics 10 and 11. 

b) Any four of Mathematics 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Psychology 11, or Business 22, 23 
may be elected in place of Mathematics 5. 

c) Achievement of minimum standards as determined by the Mathematics 
Department and completion of any two courses named in (b) above 
except Mathematics 1. 

Religion or Philosophy. All students are required to pass one year (two 

unit courses) in one of the following: (a) Philosophy 10 and 16 (b) Religion. 

Students electing the Religion option must take Rel. 10, and either Rel. 


13 (Old Testament — offered only in the fall) or Rel. 14 (New Testament — 
offered only in the spring). Rel. 10 (Perspectives on Religion) must be taken 
during the first or second semester of the Freshman year. It is highly recom- 
mended that it be taken prior to the biblical courses. 

Fine Arts. All students are required to pass one year (two unit courses) 
in 07ie of the following: 

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

(b) Literature. Students may elect one year of literature in the English 
Department from the courses numbered 20 or above, or one year of 
literature in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature 
from the courses numbered 33 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, students 
who participate in the summer theatre 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) 
Political Science, (d) Psychology or (e) 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-fulfill- 
ment 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 
objectives 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. 

College Scholar Program 

This program is designed to meet the needs of a small number of excep- 
tional students who would profit from a more flexible curriculum than that 
normally required. The College Scholar may choose, depending on his back- 
ground and interests, a program which allows for (a) greater specialization 
or (b) more interdisciplinary work than the regular curriculum permits. 


A College Scholar may be elected in either of two ways: 

1. By having been elected a Presidential Scholar. 

2. By being selected by the College Scholar Council, which administers 
the program, on the basis of proven performance at Lycoming College. 
Any student may apply for admission up to the beginning of his junior 
year, provided he has maintained a grade point average of 3.25 or 
higher for two consecutive semesters at the time of application. Selec- 
tion by the council is based on board scores, high school record, college 
record, faculty recommendations and interviews. 

Each College Scholar will be assigned to a professor by the council. Jointly, 
and with the approval of the College Scholar Council, they will construct a 
total college program suited to the needs of the student. In general all cur- 
ricular requirements, with the exception of English 10 and completion of 
thirty unit courses are waived. College Scholars are permitted to take more 
or fewer than four imit courses at a time: may substitute, with permission 
of the instructor, an independent study program for any course; may take 
inde])cndent reading or research courses; and will engage in special seminars 
conducted by members of the College Scholar Council in the freshman and 
senior years. 

If the performance of a College Scholar is unsatisfactory he may be 
dropped from the program. Such a student will be expected to complete a 
major if possible and to complete the curricular requirements set by the 


Independent Study. Each department granting a major provides oppor- 
tunity 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 Instruc- 
tion must be secured. Students who are privileged to elect Independent 
Study in any department register for courses numbered 80-89, 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 inter- 
ested 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 Professors, 
Lecturers, or Specialists in Residence will offer such seminar studies. Students 
who are privileged to elect Seminar Study in any department register for 


courses numbered 80-89, Studies, with an appropriate title to be entered 
upon the student's permanent record. Enrolhnent in seminar courses is 
normally limited to ten students. 

Departmental Honors. When a student desires to enter an Honors pro- 
gram and secures departmental approval to apply, a faculty committee shall 
be convened whose initial responsibility shall be to pass upon the student's 
eligibility to enter the program. The committee responsibility shall also 
include the direction of the study, and final evaluation of its worth. The 
conunittee 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 member from each 
of two other departments related to the subject matter of the study. Com- 
mittee members shall be selected from among the faculty members who are 
personally acquainted with the applicant's abilities. Selection of persons 
to serve on the committee is made by the head of the applicant's major 
department, after consultation with the heads of other departments involved. 
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, approval of the 
Faculty Committee on Instruction must be secured. Students who are privi- 
leged to elect Honors register for courses numbered 90-99. 

Honors study is expected to result in the completion of a thesis to be 
defended in a final oral examination. Acceptable theses shall be deposited 
in the college library. Successful completion of the Honors program will 
cause the designation of honors in the de])artment 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 coinse. 



Full college credit will be allowed for satisfactory completion of academic 
work in approved studies programs at other institutions. Such programs 
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 firsthand 
acquaintance with various aspects of the nation's capital, as well as an aca- 
demic 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 Histoi^ or Political Science, students may be permitted to 
attend Drew University, 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 aca- 
demic 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 politics. 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. 



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 Arts 
and Sciences college work). 


Economics and Business 

L)coining College offers course work in the field of business administra- 
tion particularly designed for training prospecti\e 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 curriculiun are to train and to eqiup 
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 
deseloping minil 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 curr 
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. 

Preparation for Dental School 

At least three years of pre-dental study are suggested before entry into 
a college of dentistry. However, many dental schools prefer their students to 
defer their matriculation in a dental college until they have earned a Bach- 
elor of Arts degiee. The pre-dental curriculimi is organized aroimd the basic 
courses in biology, chemistry and physics. Electing a major in one of the 
natural sciences is the usual procedure. The student should consult the 
catalogue of the college of dentistry to which he expects to apply so that all 
courses specifically required by that college of dentistry may be included in 
his program at Lycoming College. The modern practitioner of dentistry is 
not just a dentist. He is a human being dealing with other human person- 
alities and as such must be conversant in a great variety of human experi- 
ences. 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 curricidum 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 require- 
ments 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. A member of the teaching staff in the physical sciences will aid each 
cooperative engineering student in planning his program. 

Cooperative Curriculum in Forestry 

Lycoming College offers a program for forestry students which combines 
a strong liberal arts background with professional training in forestry at the 
Duke School of Forestry, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina. 

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

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. 

Cooperative Curriculum in Psychology and Business 

A cooperative curricidum is offered by the Departments of Psychology 
and Business Administration for students desiring preparation in adver- 
tising, personnel management, marketing, and other areas where specialized 
knowledge of human behavior is required. 

A student may select a major in either Business Administration or Psy- 
chology and choose electives from the alternate field. If the major is in 
Business Administration, electives should be selected from among the fol- 
lowing courses offered by the Department of Psychology: Psych. 10 — Intro- 
duction; Psych. 20 — Experimental-Sensory; Psych. 21 — Experimental-Learn- 
ing; Psych. 23 — Social Psychology; Psych. 40 — Industrial Psychology; Psych. 
41 — Testing. If the major is in Psychology, electives should be selected from 


among the following courses oflered by the Department of Business Admin- 
istration: Acct. 10-11 — Elementai"y Accounting; Bus. 30-31 — Marketing 
Management; Bus. 40 — Management Concepts; Bus. 32 — Sales Promotion; 
Bus. 42 — Personnel Management. 

Further details may be obtained from respective faculty. 

Preparation for Law School 

Nfany 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 

Preparation for Medical College 

This curriculum is organized around a solid foimdation 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 rec]uirements 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 wide range of subject matter from the hiunanities, social 
sciences and fine arts is also to be included in the curricidum. 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 

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 Quanti- 
tative Analysis are specified. Three or four years are spent in obtaining this 
academic background; the final )ear is spent in the medical laboratories of 
an approved hospital. This will consist of an internship of a full calendar 
year at a hospital accredited in the Registry of Medical Technologists of the 
American Society of Clinical Pathologists. The college will give credit for 
the year when it is informed that the student has successfully passed the 


examinations given by the Registry of Medical Technologists of the Ameri- 
can Society of Clinical Pathologists. An official transcript of studies com- 
pleted at the hospital must also be submitted by the candidate. 

Religion and Religious Education 

Any student desiring extensive study in biblical history and literature, 
the historical development of Christianity, and Christian doctrine, may 
major in religion. A qualified student planning to enter the vocation of reli- 
gious education should, besides majoring in religion, elect five or six unit 
courses in prescribed psychology, education, sociology, and church music. 
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. Interested or 
prospective students are invited to contact Mr. Neufer of the Department of 
Religion for further information concerning the opportunities, responsi- 
bilities and requirements of these and other church vocations. 

Soviet Area Studies Program 

Interest in Russian history, government, culture, and foreign relations is 
so important that Lycoming College offers special opportunity for those 
students desiring to specialize in study of such subjects. This curriculum 
permits one to select courses stressing Russian experience in a variety of 
fields and combine them with four years of Russian language study to form 
a satisfactory graduate major. 

Preparation for Theological Seminary 

(Christian Ministry) 

Young men and women called to the Christian ministry or related voca- 
tions will find the 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 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, and philosophy. So that every student may have a curricu- 
lum 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 theological school in which the student 
expects to matriculate. 


Teacher Education 

Lycoming College trains teachers for both elementary and secondary edu- 
cation. The program is clearly identified vvitli the liberal arts nature of the 
college, and hence, no candidate for the profession of teaching is considered 
apart from the total liberal arts objective. Teacher education candidates

subject matter field. 

Professional education requirements are stipulated as follows: 
Students may be considered for admission to the teacher education pro- 
gram under the following general terms:

General Expenses 

In considering the expenses of college, it is well to bear in mind that no 
student actually pays the full cost of his education. State colleges are enabled 
to keep the cost of tuition within reasonable limits by grants from the public 
treasury; independent colleges achieve this by voluntary contributions sup- 
plemented 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 $775 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 (the academic year comprises two semesters of approximately 
sixteen weeks each). If, for justifiatile 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 ^c 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 ^p more than regular rates. 

The tuition charged covers the regular or prescribed course of study 
which normally 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 

After a student is notified that he has been accepted for admission by 
the college, he is required to make a deposit of $100.00. This deposit is 
evidence of the applicant's good intention to matriculate and is applicable 
to the general charges of the final semester in residence, and is not an extra 
fee. This deposit is not refundable. 



Books and Supplies 

A modern book and supply store is conveniently located in the W'ertz 
Student Center. Books and supplies are purchased by the indi\ idual student. 
The estimated cost is approximately $75.00 per year, but will vary somewhat 
in accordance with the course of study wiiich 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 $1225.00 

Non-Resident Students $ 775.00 

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 
either 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 
withdraw from the college. 

Other fees cannot be refunded for any reason whatever. 

Penalty for Non-Payment of Fees 

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

No grades will be issued, no diploma, 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. 



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) Educational Opportunity 
Grants, (4) Loans, (5) VVorkships, (6) Work-Study Grants. 

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 aca- 
demic 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 average of B plus must be maintained together with satisfactory 
campus citizenship. 


Lycoming Presidential Scholarships 

Lycoming College offers a limited number of scholarships to outstanding 
students on a competitive basis. Candidates should be in the top tenth of 
their high school class and have verbal and quantitative College Entrance 
Examination Board scores abo\e 600. Examinations and interviews are held 
on the campus on two occasions in January and February. Successful candi- 
dates will be awarded grants ranging from one-half to full tuition, depending 
on need, for their four years at Lycoming College. In addition they are 
eligible to join the College Scholar Program (page 16). 

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 stu- 
dents. Consideration may be given to families with more than one student 
at the college. 

Educational Opportunity Grants are given to students with exceptional 
financial need who are in academic good standing. These are available 
under the Higher Education Act of 1965. 

Loans — Student loans are available from the following sources: 

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

2. The Methodist Church. Funds are made available in the form of Meth- 
odist 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 Ahn 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 S500 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 pro- 

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. 

Work-Study Grants are allocated to students in academic good standing 
who come from low income families. These federal grants are available 
under the Higher Education Act of 1965. 



Lycoming College provides the opportunity for a student to mature in 
his religious life. This is done: 

through the Director of Religious Activities, who is a member of the 
faculty with teaching responsibilities. He is responsible for co-ordinating 
the religious actixities 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 which 
co-ordinates religious groups on the campus. It is composed of repre- 
sentatives from all student religious organizations, student government, 
faculty, administration, and the local clergy. Throughout the year it plans 
campus-wide discussions, forums, lectures, etc. with the aim of helping 
persons discover meaning in life. 

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 Associated Students for Christian Vocations. Other denominational 
groups include the Canterbury Club (Episcopal), the Presbyterian Fellow- 
ship, the Lutheran Student Association, the Roger Williams Club (Bap- 
tist), 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. 


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 classroom, 
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 college, by 
complementing the academic life of the campus. 



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. 

Studpnt Government 

Self-go\ernment by students in certain areas of campus life is an objective 
achieved through the Student Government Association of Lycoming Col- 
lege. The Student Council is the legislative body of the Association. The 
Officers of the Student Government .\ssociation 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 
invoking the violation of the parking regulations. This court is also em- 
powered 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 Presi- 
dent 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. 

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 VV^omen Students. Each operates under limited authority in 
situations related to its specific area. 

Social and Cultural Influences 

Lycoming gives 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 an 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 pro\ide wider cidtural 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 services 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 
saving courses, coffee hours, and provides an informal place for students 
to gather. 

Programs presented in the past include Ogden Nash, Carey McWilliams, 
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, the Lycoming Student Union offers students 
a real opportunity to learn while serving the campus.

alike a fine opportunity to learn by doing. There are several choral groups 
and instrumental ensembles offering every able student the chance to partici- 
pate both on the campus and on tour.

roerams ana ivuies 


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

In order to prepare for the beginning of this experience, Lycoming sched- 
ules six to eight orientation sessions each lasting two and one half days dur- 
ing 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 aca- 
demic advisement, placement testing, library orientation, and registration. 
The college is able to work more satisfactorily with new students in plan- 
ning programs of study tailored to each student's vocational and academic 
interests. Each new student completes all preliminaries, including registra- 
tion, 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 schedule 
and a pre-registration form are mailed to each new student admitted to 
Lycoming College.

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

Intramural Athletics

badminton, table tennis, tennis, softball, swimming, field hockey, and 
archery. Field days are arranged with WAA groups of other colleges and 
universities during the school year. 


Academic Counseling 

An advantage of a small college is the rich experience gained by the 
close association of students and faculty. The counseling program at Ly- 
coming enables students to discuss various academic problems with their 
instructors, the Dean of the College, and the Dean of Students. 

As an entering freshman, the student is assigned to a faculty adviser 
who meets with him a number of times during the year. The freshman 
finds his adviser eager to guide and assist in the many problems that con- 
front a new college student. 

Psychological Services 

The college provides a program of psychological services under the 
direction of a qualified clinical psychologist from the psychology department. 

The psychology clinic provides limited diagnostic and psychotherapeutic 
services, without charge, to all students desiring help in the solution of 
emotional and behavioral problems. Under certain circumstances psychologi- 
cal testing is offered. Any member of the college community desiring either 
psychological counseling or an informal consultation may use the services 
of the clinic. 

Placement Services 

The Placement Office assists the student in each of the following areas: 

1. Securing part-time employment on the campus and in the community

job interviews, government service, and other data helpful to seniors 

4. Providing information about summer job opportunities 

5. The college maintains an active teacher placement service for each 
education graduate. Each year many districts send representatives to 
the campus to interview prospective elementary and secondary teachers. 
Over 3500 positions in the eastern states are listed yearly in the Edu- 
cation Office. 

By providing on-campus interviews with selected employers recruiting on 
college campuses and by sending student credentials to prospective employ- 
ers, the Placement Office opens broader vocational opportunities to grad- 
uates seeking employment.

Gainbling, cheating and stealing are totally inconsistent with Lycoming 
standards. Students who cannot accept the prohibition of such behavior 
should :iot appl) . Although the adherence to proper conduct is an individual 


responsibility it is a group responsibility as well. It is encumbent on all 
Lycoming students that they prevail u])on their fellows to conduct them- 
selves honorably for the collective good. Any honor code worthy of the 
name applies not only to each person's responsibility for his own behavior 
but also to his responsibility and concern for the individual and collective 
behavior of the remaining members of the college community.

ern New Jersey, Rochester, and Syracuse. 

Lycoming College holds Class A, B, and C memberships in the American
