Purpose and Objectives 

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

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

affirming the Christian faith as a valid interpretation of the vocation of 

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 college 
is human life and living. We find this concern manifesting itself, in a Chris- 
tian setting, as an affirmation of the fundamental dignity and worth of all 
human beings. The entire program of the college is directed toward fulfill- 
ment 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 recently by the for- 
mulation of the specific objectives above. It now faces the decade ahead 
with the confidence that man's best chance for survival lies in wisdom, 
knowledge, and understanding 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. Residents consider the college one of Williamsport's 
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, 
Harrisburg, 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 156 years 
of its history. 

Founded in 1812 as Williamsport Academy, it is the oldest educational 
institution in the city of Williamsport. At first, the Academy served only 
the young through what are now recognized as the elementary grades. With 


the advent of public schools in the city, the Academy expanded its curricu- 
lar 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, this time to include 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 Associa- 
tion 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 de- 
mands 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 partici- 
pation 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 aided 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 offered by the weekly 
chapel program which brings to the campus outstanding religious leaders 
who share with the student body contemporary religious thinking. 

Db. 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. 

Admissions 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 sub- 
jects 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. 

®MuS!C 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 applica- 
tions, personal recommendations, counselor's evaluations and other avail- 
able information. In addition, phone calls and letters are frequently ex- 
changed in an effort to discern the qualities in an applicant which play an 
important part in the success of the 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 $100 fee no 
later than May 1. 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 ap- 
plied toward the charges of the last semester in residence, normally the 
semester prior to graduation. Should the student decide to transfer or other- 
wise terminate his enrollment at Lycoming College prior to graduation 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 Notification. 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 rec- 

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

c) A fee of $15, which is a processing charge and is not refundable. 
(/) Confidential reports from two persons listed as references in the 


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 place- 
ment examination of the College Entrance Examination Board, are en- 
couraged to apply for credit and placement. A grade of three or above is 
generally considered 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 student's 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 Ly- 
coming 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 dur- 
ing the spring of 1968. 


Admission to Evening School 

Lycoming College ofifers a number of courses in its evening division. These 
courses are primarily intended for adults 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 re- 
quirements 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 a two- 
year certificate. 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 a two-year certificate interested individuals should con- 
tact the Dean of the College. 

Admissions Office 

The Admissions OflSce 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. and on Satmday morning. For an appointment please write or call 
the Admissions Office. The telephone number is Williamsport 717-326-1951. 


Graduation Requirements 

Every degree candidate completes an academic program that consists of 
32 unit courses, passing a minimum of 30, 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 unit courses and passes a writ- 
ten comprehensive examination in that major field. 

Additional requirements are: 
Two years' credit in Physical Education. 

Chapel and Cultural Activities credit for all freshmen, sophomores and 
juniors enrolled full-time. Yearly attendance requirements are as follows: 

Chapel Cultural Activities 
Freshmen 12 18 

Sophomores 8 12 

Juniors 4 6 


The decreasing attendance requirements do not imply that upperclassmen 
should attend fewer or no such events but that they have now experienced 
a wide variety of such lectures and artistic performances and are free to 
exercise their more mature judgment based on experience as to which and 
whether they will attend. 

Orientation to college for Freshmen. 

All financial obligations incurred at the college must be paid. 

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 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. 
Pass (P) may be used in certain courses. 

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 more unit courses taken in any one semester. 

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

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

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

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

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

Academic Standing 

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

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

Juniors are admitted to senior standing when they have passed a mini- 
mum of twenty-two unit courses, sixteen with grades of C or better. 

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

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

Class Attendance 

The academic program at Lycoming is based upon the assumption that 
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. 

Degree Programs 

Lycoming College is basically a college of liberal arts. Its only degree is 
the Bachelor of Arts and it requires of all of its degree candidates that they 
have fulfilled certain minimal course requirements in breadth of learning — 
the distribution requirements — and in depth of learning in a chosen subject 
matter field — the major. 

Instruction at Lycoming College is organized with few exceptions on a 
departmental basis. Nearly all courses are unit courses, meaning that each 
course taken by the student is considered to carry the same academic value 
as all other courses. For transfer purposes each course is considered to be 
equivalent to four semester hours of academic work. This does not mean 
that all courses will meet for four one-hour lectures each week although 
many will do so. Rather each course meets on a schedule set by the depart- 
ment and the instructor involved. Such meetings may be on a lecture, dis- 
cussion, laboratory or tutorial basis. Varying amouts of additional reading, 
writing, study and research will be required for each course. The number of 
actual class meetings may vary from two to six or seven per week. 

Normally each student will elect four courses each semester, although in 
unusual circumstances a student may take more or less than this number. 
One unit course may be elected during each of the three four-week summer 

The Major 

Except for individuals in the College Scholar program all students will 
complete a series of courses in a field of concentration known as the Major. 
The minimum number of such courses in any case is eight and with one 
exception the concentration is within a given department of the college. 
A student may not major in education, but majors are available in the follow- 
ing departments: 

Accounting Music 

Art Philosophy 

Biology Physics 

Business Administration Political Science 

Chemistry Psychology 

Economics Religion 

English Russian 

French Sociology and Anthropology 

German Spanish 

History Theatre 


In addition one may elect to major in the interdisciplinary Soviet Area 


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, Educa- 
tion, Geology, Greek. 

Selection of a major is entirely at the discretion of the student. The choice 
is governed by such important factors as vocational aims, aptitudes, and 
interest. Whatever the reason, the student must, by the close of his sopho- 
more year, have selected a major. 

Some fields are such that the program of study is highly standardized 
and most of the major courses are specified while others allow a wide lati- 
tude of choice. In any case, however, all major departments offer a series 
of advanced level courses enabling the serious student to probe more deeply 
into his field of interest. Specific subjects selected for such advanced studies 
may be highly diversified, and may take the form of independent study, 
honors, seminars, or small classes informally organized. 

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 departments other 
than the major. Some such courses are specified by various departments 
while others may be elected by the student in consultation with his faculty 

The Distribution Requirements 

There are many definitions and many approaches to liberal education. 
Certainly the liberally educated man will have the breadth of training which 
will enable him to bring many of the historical and traditional avenues of 
thought to bear on the problems and questions he finds within the world, his 
community and himself. His study and learning will emphasize his humanity 
and should enable him to bring all of the aspects of life into a proper per- 

In order to aid in accomplishing this end, all liberal arts colleges establish 
distribution requirements, a set of groups of courses from which the student 
may choose in order to satisfy the criterion of breadth of learning. Courses 
that meet these requirements are selected in consultation with the faculty 
advisor. At Lycoming College each student must meet the following require- 

Freshman English. All students are ordinarily required to pass English 
10, Rhetoric, and English 11, Introduction to Literature. Students who have 
achieved a sufficiently high score in the ETS Advanced Placement Test in 
English may have the requirements of English 10 and 11 waived. 

Foreign Language or Mathematics. All students are required to meet 

a minimum basic requirement in citlicr 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 facult>- 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 
Test, or scores of similar examinations administered by the college. 

A prior record of sufficient qualit\' 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 an>- appropriate language on the high school record will 
cause the student to be entered into an elemcntar\- language course. In such 
cases, two years (four unit courses) of one language are required. 

MatJicinatics. 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 wa\s: 
a) Mathematics 10 and 11. 
h) An>- four of Mathematics 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8. Psychology 11, or Business 

22-23 may be elected in place of Mathematics 5. 
c) .\chie\ement 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. \\\ students are required to pass one year (two 
unit courses) in one of the following: (a) Philosophy 10 and 16 (i>) 

Students electing the Religion option must take Rel. 10, and either Rel. 
13 (Old Testament), or Rel. 14 (New Testament). Rel. 10 (Perspectives on 
Religion) must be taken during the first or second semester of the freshman 

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. 

h) 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 10-11, 12-13, 
or Music Theory, Music 23-24 will satisfy this requirement. 

d) Theatre. Any two Theatre courses numbered 10 and above will satisfy 


this requirement. Courses in basic Speech are not apphcable 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: (rt)Biology, (b) Chemistry, or (t) Physics. 

History and Social Science. All students are required to pass one year 
(two vmit courses) in one of the following: (fl) Economics, (b) History, (c) 
Political Science, ((/) Psychology or (c) 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 education opportunities is provided. 

College Scholar Program. This program is designed to meet the needs 
of a small number of exceptional students who would profit from a more 
flexible curriculum than that normally required. The College Scholar may 
choose, depending on his background and interests, a program which allows 
(a) greater specialization or (/;) more interdisciplinary work than the regu- 
lar curriculum permits. 

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

1. By having been elected in competition with other applicants, prior 
to enrollment at Lycoming. 

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, col- 
lege 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 successful com- 
pletion of thirty unit courses, are waived. College Scholars are permitted to 
take more or fewer than four unit courses at a time; may substitute, with 


permission of the instructor, an independent study program for any course; 
may take independent 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 Academic Standing Committee 
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. Stu- 
dents who are privileged to elect Seminar Study in any department register 
for courses numbered 70-79, Studies, with an appropriate title to be entered 
upon the student's permanent record. Enrollment 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 
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 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 depart- 
ment, after consultation with the heads of other departments involved. Usu- 


ally the Honors program involves independent study in two consecutivo unit 
courses. Students who are privileged 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 department to be placed upon the 
permanent record. In the event that the study is not completed successfully, 
the student shall be re-registered in Studies and given a final grade for the 

Washington Semester. Upon recommendation of the faculty of the 
Department of Political Science, students may be permitted to attend the 
American University, Washington, D.C., for a period of one full semester. 
The Washington Semester program is intended to provide a first-hand 
acquaintance 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 History 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 first-hand 
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 . 

Vocational Aims 

Courses of study at 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 ad- 


vanced level various fields that may fit him for life's vocation or direct him 
toward professional or graduate schools. 

In addition to preparation for graduate study within the department in 
which the student has majored or in related departments the student may 
prepare himself for graduate work in dental school, law school, medical 
school, seminary study or religious education. The college maintains a 
cooperative program in engineering with Bucknell University and The Penn- 
sylvania State University and in Forestry with Duke University. In each case 
the student obtains a B.A. degree from Lycoming and a second degree from 
the cooperating institution. Normally he will spend three years at Lycoming 
and two years at the second school. A program is also available in Medical 

A wide variety of vocations may be entered directly upon graduation. 
These include positions in business, industry, government, and the profes- 
sions, including teaching. Lycoming College certifies teachers at both the 
elementary and secondary levels. 

Students interested in any of these areas are referred to the Academic 
Handbook, to their advisor, to the appropriate departments or to special 
advisors assigned for each of the areas mentioned above. 



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 en- 
abled to keep the cost of tuition within reasonable limits by grants from the 
public treasury; independent colleges achieve this by voluntary contributions 
supplemented by income from their invested endowment funds. At Ly- 
coming 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 $775.00 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 justifiable reason, it is impossible for a student 
to eat in the College Dining Room, permission may be given the student to 
make other arrangements for meals. However, in the event such permission, 
is granted, the room cost will be 50% higher than the above rates. If a student 
requests the use of a double room as a single room and the room is available, 
he will be charged 50% more than regular rates. 

The tuition charged covers the regular or prescribed course of study 
which normally comprises four subjects. Additional detailed information 
wiU 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 cost 
of processing the application and maintaining ijcademic records and is non- 

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; it is not an extra fee. This 
deposit is not refundable. 



Books and Supplies 

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

Payment of Fees 

The basic fees for the semester are due and payable on or before registra- 
tion 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 with- 
drawal sheet is considered the official date of withdrawal. In the case of 
minors, the approval of the parent or guardian is required before the with- 
drawal is approved and before any refund is made. 

Room rentals have been fi.xed on a semester basis. Consequently, students 
leaving college prior to the ending of a semester will not be entitled to any 
refund of room rent. Board will be pro-rated by the week over the period 
of attendance. 

Refund of tuition will be made to students who withdraw 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, 607c; during the third four weeks, 90f ; 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 anv reason whatever. 

Penalty for Non-Payment of Fees 

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

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

Damage Charges 

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

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

1 Aid 


A generous program of financial aid for students is designed to recognize 
outstanding achievement and to supplement limited resources by providing 
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) Workships, (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 receiving the award during succeeding years, a superior 
academic standard must be maintained together with satisfactory campus 

Lycoming offers a limited number of Presidential Scholarships to outstand- 
ing students on a competitive basis. Candidates should be in the top tenth of 
their high school class and have verbal and quantitative CoOege Entrance 
Examination Board scores above 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 demon- 
strated need. The size of the grant is determined by need and by the promise 
of becoming beneficial members of the college community and of society. 
Consideration may be given to families with more than one student at the 

Ministerial Grants-in-Aid: Financial assistance is available through grants 
from The Methodist Church to children of ministers and ministerial students. 

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 a variety of sources. Details may 
be obtained from the Director of Student Aid 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 em- 
ployment. 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.

Religious Life 

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 activities of the college and provides counseling in the area 
of religion to students who request his assistance. He serves as Executive 
Secretary to the Religious Life Council. 

through the Religious Life Council, the student organization which 
co-ordinates religious groups on the campus. It is composed of representa- 
tives 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. It also operates the Ragged Edge, the campus 
coffee house. 

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 Fel- 
lowship, the Lutheran Student Association, the Roger Williams Club 
(Baptist), and the United Campus Christian Fellowship (Disciples, 
E. U. B., and Reformed). Each of these meets regularly to provide mem- 
bers of its faith with the opportunity to participate in activities of common 

Student Activities 

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. 



Tlio 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 responsbili- 
ties, and to learn as they participate. 

Student Government 

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

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 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 Committee 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 Weekend are major social activities under the 
sponsorship of Student Council. Each of these weekends 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 
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 provide wider cultural experiences than might normally be 
available to the student. Although the series is entertaining, its prime ob- 
jective 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, intercollegiate mixers, films, tourna- 
ments, recreational activities, dancing, bridge, skiing, life-saving courses, 
and 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 Com- 
petition attracts groups from colleges throughout New England and the 
Middle Atlantic States. One of the finest gatherings of college musical organ- 
izations, it provides two nights of the best college student entertainment 
available anywhere in the nation. Rapidly growing in stature, the IMC has 
helped winning groups move into the professional field. 

A laboratory for learning, the Lycoming Student Union offers 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 commimity. 

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

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

The Lycoming Review, a student literary magazine, is published twice a 
year and reveals the creative writing produced on the Lycoming campus.

It is designed to keep the alumni informed of current happenings at the 
college and on alumni activities. The Newsletter is published periodically 
between issues of the Bulletin. 

The President's Report, an annual review of college operations to the 
Board of Directors, is distributed to all alumni and parents. 

The Student Bulletin and The Fiuultij Bulletin are published weekly by 


the office of the Dean of the College. 

The Lycoming Library Student Handbook is published by the library 
every September. 

The Campus Radio Station, WLCR, broadcasts nightly from 5:00 p.m. 
until midnight on a wired circuit to all residence halls. The station broad- 
casts music, news commentary, sports results, and special programs of inter- 
est to the student body. 

The Pennsylvania Folklore Society 

In 1961 Lycoming College became the official headquarters of the Penn- 
sylvania Folklore Society, a scholarly organization founded in 1920 for the 
purpose of collecting, preserving, and disseminating knowledge about Penn- 
sylvania folklore. The college and the society publish jointly a quarterly 
journal, the Keystone Folklore Qtiarterhj, 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 provide opportunities for social 
and intellectual growth. These groups are organized and conducted by 
students in cooperation with faculty sponsors or advisors. 

Some of the groups are: the Student P.S.E.A.-N.E.A., which gives prospec- 
tive teachers current information on the teaching field and an insight into the 
problems of education; the Lycoming College Theatre, which stages a 
variety of dramatic productions including original work; The Varsity Club, 
composed of lettermen, which promotes college spirit in sports; the Business 
Club for students majoring in business administration; the French, German, 
Russian and Spanish Clubs, which study the language and the life and ciil- 
ture of the countries; the Model United Nations Society, the Practical Politics 
Society, political clubs, and the Associated Women Students, which sponsors 
parties and teas for students, faculty, and parents. 

Musical organizations at Lycoming offer to singers and instrumentalists 
alike a fine opportunity to learn by doing. There are several choral groups 
and instrumental ensembles offering every able student the chance to parti- 
cipate both on the campus and on tour. 


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

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

Programs and Rules 


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. Adjustments 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 ad\isement, 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. 

Intercollegiate Sports 

The college oflFers an attracti\e program of intercollegiate athletics and
