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 by encour- 
aging cultural explorations essential to a free society, 

afiBrming 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 afiBrmation 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 bom of Hberal 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. 

Wilhamsport 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 Wilhamsport 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 Penn Central 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 Wilhamsport. 



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 157 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 

■■*■ ^ T 


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 Wilhamsport 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 hberal arts and sciences. It is approved to grant baccalaureate 
degrees by the Pennsylvania State Department of Education. It is 
accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary 
Schools and the University Senate of The United Methodist Church. It is a 
member of the Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Universities, the 
National Association of Schools and Colleges of The United Methodist 
Church, the Association 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 United Methodist Church. The evolution of Lycoming 
from its origins to its present status has been accomplished with the con- 
tinuous conviction that a Christian philosophy of life is 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 Chris- 
tian way of life. 


Lycoming College is owned by the Preachers' Aid Society of The Central 
Pennsylvania Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. Faculty 
and students express their religious convictions through membership and 
participation 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 afiirmation of the vahdity of the Christian 
faith as a way of life. Fulfillment of this objective is aided by the support 
of a strong Department of Rehgion. This department was estabhshed 
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 rehgious thinking. 

Dr. Harold H. Hutson 
President, 1969- 




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 pohcy 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, difiFerences 
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 is required. 

2. Although a set pattern of high school subjects is not required, a strong 
program of academic subjects is recommended as the most desirable 
preparation for college. This should include a total of 15 or 16 academic 
units with substantial work in the areas of English and mathematics, and 
additional work in foreign language, social studies, and science.' 

3. The College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test is required. Acceptable 
scores are considered in the hght of other academic information. 

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



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. 

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, nomially the 
semester prior to graduation. When a student decides to terminate his 
enrollment at Lycoming College prior to graduation, this fee will be 
refunded when a written request is made to the Registrar before the end 
of the student's eighth week of his last semester. 

Eably 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 November 1. Candidates accepted in this category will be notified 
by December 1 and will be recjuired 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 Ofiice 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. 

d) 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 Freshmen 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 apphcant 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 tlie spring of 1970. 

Admission as a Special Student 

Lycoming College offers a number of courses in the late afternoon and 
evening. These are a part of the regular college program and are open to 
all cjualified students. Students who wish to enroll in one or more of these 
courses must be admitted, through the Admissions Office, as a special stu- 
dent. The course offerings given the eighth (4:00-4:50 p.m.) and ninth 
(6:30-8:00 p.m.) periods are such that any student may obtain all or nearly 
all of his A.B., requirements at these times and on a part-time basis. 

In addition many advanced courses are given at these times. The courses 
are well-suited to the elementary and secondary school teacher who needs 
continuing work, as, for example, to qualify for permanent certification.

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 estabhshing reasonable absence regulations in any given 
course. Responsibihty for learning and observing these regulations rests with 
the student. 

Degree Programs 

Lycoming College is a liberal arts institution granting the Bachelor of Arts 
degree. A degree candidate must fulfill certain minimal course requirements 
in breadth of learning— the distribution requirements— and in depth of learn- 
ing 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 any other course. 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 amounts 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 four-week summer 

The Major 

Except for individuals in the Lycoming Scholar program, all students will 
complete a series of covuses in a field of concentration known as the major. 
The minimum number of such courses in any case is eight, and, with one 
exception (Soviet Area Program), the concentration is within a given 
department of the college. 

Majors are available in the following 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, Edu- 
cation, 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 imquestionably 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 perspective. 

In order to aid in accomplishing this end, most liberal arts colleges estab- 
lish 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 

Freshman English. All students are ordinarily required to pass Enghsh 
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 Mathem.\tics. 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 two units on the intermediate or a higher course level. 
Placement at the appropriate course level will be determined by the faculty 
of the Department of Foreign Languages. 

No student who has had two or more years of a given foreign lanjuage 
in high school shall be admitted to the elementary course in that same 
language for credit, except by written permission from the Chairman of 
the department. 

Mathematics. Students electing the mathematics option will be given a 
placement 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, 8, 9, or Business 23. 

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, (fo) Religion. 

Philosophy. Students electing the philosophy option must take Philosophy 
10 and one other Philosophy course ; except upon the consent of the depart- 
ment, this other course will not be Philosophy 28, 31, or 38. 

Religion. Students electing the religion option must take Religion 10 and 
one other Religion course. This will normally be either Religion 13 or 14, 
but with the consent of the instructor the student may enroll in other 
Religion courses. 

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

a) Art. Normally, any two courses in art, including Education 14, will 
satisfy this requirement. 

h) Literature. Students may elect one year of hterature in the Enghsh 
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; Educa- 
tion 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. Theatre I, a course in basic speech is not applicable 
toward meeting the requirement in fine arts. 


Natubal 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 Opportiuiities 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 oflFers 
him the best chance to realize his intellectual potential. It is for this reason, 
that Lycoming has developed a curriculum that allows a maximum flexi- 
bility 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. 

Lycoming Schoi..\r 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 Lycoming Scholar may 
choose, depending on his background and interests, a program which allows 
(a) greater specialization or (b) more interdisciplinary work than the regu- 
lar curriculum permits. 

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

L By having been elected in competition with other applicants, prior 

to enrollment at Lycoming. 
2. By being selected by the Lycoming Scholar Council, which adminis- 
ters 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 appli- 
cation. Selection by the council is based on board scores, high school 
record, college record, faculty recommendations and interviews. 

Each Lycoming Scholar will be assigned to a professor by the council. 
Jointly, and with the approval of the Lycoming Scholar Council, they will 
construct a total college program suited to the needs of the student. In 
general all curricular requirements, with the exception of English 10 and 
successful completion of thirty unit courses, are waived. Lycoming 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 pro- 
gram for any course; may take independent reading or research courses; 


and will engage in special seminars conducted by members of the Lycoming 
Scholar Council in the freshman and senior years. 

All Lycoming Scholars must take a comprehensive examination. The 
student is to elect whether he will take the comprehensive made up by the 
Lycoming Scholar Council for the Lycoming Scholars or the comprehensive 
in his major, if he has one. 

If the performance of a Lycoming 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 

The student should note that no financial aid is automatically granted 
any Lycoming Scholar. In addition any Lycoming Scholar who elects 
five courses in one semester will be charged for the fifth course as would 
any other student. No aid automatically accrues to any Lycoming Scholar 
who elects to spend one or more semesters either overseas or at other 
campuses in the United States. However, all Lycoming Scholars will be 
given careful consideration when election of one of the special aspects 
of the program places an additional financial burden on the student and 
his family. The scholar should consult with the financial aid officer. 

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 
quahfied 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 more than one unit during a semester 
or 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 offer- 
ings. Establishment of the seminar and admission of students depends 
upon the approval of the department involved. Occasionally, Visiting Pro- 
fessors, Lecturers, or Specialists in Residence will offer such seminar studies. 
Students who are privileged to elect Seminar Study in any department regis- 
ter 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 Hmited to ten students. 

Depahtmental Honors. When a student desires to enter an Honors pro 
gram ahd secures departmental approval to apply, a faculty committee shall 
be convened whose initial responsibifity 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 abihties. Selection of persons 
to serve on the committee is made by the chairman of the applicant's major 
department, after consultation with the chairmen of other departments 
involved. Usually the Honors program involves independent study in two 
consecutive 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 
pennanent record. In the event that the study is not completed sucessfully, 
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 nonnal 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. 

London Semester. Upon recommendation of the faculty of the Depart- 
ments of History or Political Science, students may be permitted to attend 
London University for a period of one semester. This program is operated 
by Drew University in conjunction with many other American colleges. 
It is intended to acquaint the student with the character of one of the 
principal sources of American law and politics as well as to provide an 
academic program ecjuivalent to the nonnal four courses. 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 espe- 
cially 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. 

International iNTERCxrLTtrRAL Studies. Lycoming College is a participat- 
ing member of the Association of Colleges and Universities for International 
Intercultural Studies (ACUIIS). The Association sponsors college courses 
taught during the summer at a center agreed upon by the member institu- 
tions. During the summer of 1969, the program, consistmg of a number of 
courses, was held at the University of Graz in Austria, July 3-August 22. 
Lycoming College students are eligible for participation in this program, 
extending across seven weeks of the summer. Total cost will approximate 
$800.00-$850.00 and includes air fare, tuition, room, board, field trips, laun- 
dry and insurance. Students interested in this program should consult the 
Dean of the College. 

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. The 
second is to provide him an opportunity' to explore, from an elementary to 
an advanced level, various fields that may fit him for life's vocation or 
direct him toward professional or graduate schools. A wide variety of 
vocations may be entered directly upon graduation. These include posi- 
tions in business, industry, government, and the professions, including 
teaching. Students interested in any of these areas are referred to their 
advisor, to the appropriate departments or to special advisors assigned for 
each of the areas mentioned above. 

Economics and Business 

Lycoming College oflFers course work in the field of business administra- 
tion particularly designed for training prospective business leaders. The 
three areas of specialization are business administration, accounting, and 
economics. Business is a highly diversified occupation; therefore the cur- 
riculum is not designed to be vocational or narrowly pre-professional. The 
purposes of the business administration curriculum are to train and to equip 
the minds of men and women to recognize and to solve complex problems 
facing business executives, to develop an appreciation for rigorous analysis, 
to practice the arts of verbal and written communication, and to expose the 


developing mind to as wide as possible a range of course work represented 
by the traditional liberal arts curriculum, to the end that a student becomes 
truly well educated. Considerable flexibility is pennissible within the cur- 
riculum and the student is encouraged to pursue course work most reward- 
ing to him. Three years of high school mathematics are recommended for 
preparation. For specific requirements, refer to individual course areas. 

Preparation for Dental School 

At least three years of pre-dental study are suggested before entn' 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 degree. The pre-dental curriculum is organized around the basic 
courses in biology, chemistry and physics. Electing a major in one of the 
natural sciences is the usual procedure. The student should consult the 
catalog 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 modem 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 curriculum combining 
the manifold advantages of a small liberal arts college with the training to 
be secured at an engineering school. By arrangement with Bucknell Uni- 
versity and The Pennsylvania State University, the colleges offer 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 hberal arts degree requirements, including such subjects as 
English, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and economics. 

Upon satisfactory completion of these three years' work at Lycoming 
College, the student will apply for admission to the Duke School of Forestry 
for one summer and two years of training in forestry. At the end of his first 
year at Duke, his record will be sent to liycoming 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 Universtry. 

Cooperative Curriculum in Drama 

The American Academy of Dramatic Arts and Lycoming College recog- 
nize appropriate courses given by the other institution. At Lycoming an 
exception is made in the residency requirements for graduation (page 15). 
Normally, in the case of the transfer student who is a graduate of the 
American Academy of Dramatic Arts and recommended by them and who 
has completed two years successful study at an accredited college or uni- 
versity, the residency requirement shall be two summers with The Arena 
Theatre and two consecutive semesters in an academic year. Course work 
may be required during summer sessions. Each case is subject to review. 

Preparation for Law School 

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


Preparation for Medical College 

This curriculum is organized around a solid foundation of the basic 
courses in biology, chemistry and physics. Pre-medical students usually 
major in one of the natural sciences. The student should be aware of the 
specific pre-medical course requirements demanded by the medical college 
to which he will apply so 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 humanities, social 
sciences and fine arts is also to be included in the curriculum. Some stu- 
dents may matriculate in a college of medicine after three years of pre- 
medical work, but the more normal procedure is to elect four years of 
pre-medi(;al study and enter the medical college with a Bachelor of Arts 

Medical Technology 

This curriculimi 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 one 
other course are required. Three or four years are spent in obtaining this 
academic background; the final year 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. Lycoming 
College has a formal affiliation with Williamsport Hospital, Divine Provi- 
dence Hospital in Williamsport and Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Penn- 

Religion and Religious Education 

Any student desiring extensive study in biblical history and bterature, 
the historical development of Christianity, and Christian doctrine, may 
major in religion. A qualified student planning to enter the vocation of 
religious education should, besides majoring in religion, elect five or six unit 
courses in prescribed psychology, education, sociology, and church music. 
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- 
bihties 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 speciahze 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 oppor- 
tunities 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, Enghsh, history, and philosophy. So that every student may have 
a curriculum designed to fit his individual needs, the offerings in the junior 
and senior year are largely elective. However, the choice of electives will 
depend upon the specific requirements of the theological school in which 
the student expects to matriculate. 

Teacher Education 

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



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 
pubhc treasury; independent colleges achieve this by voluntary contribu- 
tions supplemented by income from their invested endowment funds. At 
Lycoming College, the tuition fee which each student pays represents only 
a portion of the total instruction cost. Tuition is kept at the lowest possible 
level consistent with adequate facilities and competent instruction. 

Tuition at Lycoming is $925.00 per semester, plus certain fees which are 
listed on the following pages. The room expense for boarding students 
amounts to $250.00 per semester except for men living in the Fraternity 
Residence, who are assessed an additional $25.00. Board is $275.00 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 
will be furnished by the Treasurer's Office upon request. 

Application Fee and Deposit 

All students applying for admission are required to send an apphcation 
fee of $15.00 with the application. This charge is to partially defray the 
cost of processing the application and maintaining academic records and is 
non- refundable. 

After a student is notified that he has been accepted for admission by the 
college, he is required to make a deposit of $100.00. This deposit is evidence 
of the applicant's good intention to matriculate and is applicable to the 
general charges of his final semester in attendance (see page 12); it is not 
an extra fee. This deposit is not refundable when the student fails to 
matriculate at Lycoming College. 


Books and Supplies 

A modem book and supply store is conveniently located in the Wertz 
Student Center. Books and supplies are purchased by the individual stu- 
dent. 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. 


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 through various educa- 
tional plans. Additional information concerning partial payments may be 
obtained from the Treasurer or Director of Admissions. 

Withdrawals and Refunds 

The date on which the Dean of the College approves the student's 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 fixed on a semester basis. Consequently, students 
leaving college prior to the ending of a semester will not be entitled to any 
refund of room rent. 

Refund of tuition and board will be made to students who withdraw vol- 
untarily 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. 
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 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. 

Financial 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 eflForts 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) 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 available from high school counselors or from 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 cumu- 
lative average of 3.0 must be maintained together with satisfactory campus 

Lycoming offers a limited number of Lycoming Fellowships 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 College En- 
trance Examination Board scores above 600. Examinations and interviews 
are held on the campus on two occasions in December and February. Suc- 
cessful candidates will be awarded grants ranging up to full tuition, 
depending on need, for their four years at Lycoming College providing 
they maintain a 3.0 average. In addition they are eligible to join the 
Lycoming Scholar Program (page 20). 

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 communit)-. Con- 
sideration is also given to families with more than one student at the 

Ministerial Grant s-in- Aid: Financial assistance is available through grants 
from The United Methodist Church to children of ministers and ministerial 

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


Loans: Federal National Defense Student Loans are available to needy 
students. Other loans are available through the various state student loan 

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

Religious Life 

Lycoming College provides a student with many opportunities to mature 
in his faith through participation in the religious life of the campus. 

A Director of Religious Activities, who is a member of the faculty with 
teaching responsibilities, is responsible for co-ordinating the religious activi- 
ties 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. The Religious Life CouncO, a student organization which 
coordinates the religious program on the campus, is composed of representa- 
tives from student organizations, 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. 

Weekly worship services on Sunday morning in Clarke Chapel are planned 
under the supervision of the Director of Religious Activities and the Religious 
Life Council. Regular Protestant ecumenical services are provided, along 
with occasional Catholic masses planned and scheduled by the Catholic 
students under the direction of the chaplain to Catholic students, associated 
with St. Roniface Roman Catholic Church. Jewish students are invited to 
associate with either the Orthodox or Reformed Synagogue. 

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 class- 
room, but also in every college activity. 

The college assumes its responsibility in this area by directing the extra- 
curricular educational experiences of the students in such a way that these 
activities contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the 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 responsibili- 
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 organizations. 

As the Student Council has been delegated authority for certain areas of 
campus life, it has also become more directly involved with the problems of 
campus community life and is participating actively in the formulation of 
policy and procedures. Recognized by the college as the legitimate repre- 
sentative body of the students, the Student Council has been responsible for 
the organization of the Tri-Partite Committee which is composed of stu- 
dents, faculty, and administrators. This committee considers basic issues 
within the college, makes recommendations, and refers items to the various 
campus groups authorized to take action. 

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 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 
concert or dance along with a full program of activities, which is financed 
by a social fee of $16.00 per year for all students. 

This fund has sponsored concerts by Martha and the Vandellas, The 
Happenings, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and Gary Puckett and The 
Union Gap. 

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 famihar 
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, pubHcity, 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, tournaments, recreational activities, 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 McWiUiams, 
The Riverside Chamber Singers, the New York Baroque Ensemble, and 
numerous other lectm-ers and performers. The Board cooperates in the spon- 
sorship of the Artist and Lecture Series by providing funds and personnel. 

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 oflBcial college publications. Each is devoted to a 
specific area of college life, and is designed to communicate to selected 
groups of the college community. 

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

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

The Freshman Handbook, published annually by Student Government, is 
a handbook of regulations and miscellaneous information which is distrib- 
uted to freshmen prior to their arrival on the campus. 

The Alumni Bulletin is published by the Alumni Office four times yearly. 
It is designed to keep the alumni informed of current happenings at the 
college and on alumni activities. The Newsletter is pubUshed 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 Faculty Bulletin are published weekly by 
the oflBce of the Dean of the College. 

The Lycoming Library Student Handbook is pubhshed by the Ubrary 
every September. 


The Campus Radio Station, VVLCR, 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 official headquarters of the Pennsyl- 
vania Folklore Society, a scholarly organization founded in 1920 for the

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 
scheduUng, and methods of instruction must be assimilated. Adjustments 
to this new experience are 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. 

Intercollegiate Sports 

The college offers an attractive program of intercollegiate athletics and 
encourages wide participation by its students. It is a member of the 
National Collegiate Athletic Association, the 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, wresthng, swimming, baseball, tennis, golf, 
and track. 

Intramural Athletics 

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

Sports for men include touch football, basketball, volleyball, bowling, 
badminton, table tennis, tennis, softball, golf, wrestling, swimming, horse- 
shoes, track and field. 

Sports for women include competition in basketball, volleyball, bowling, 
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 Student Services. 

As an entering Freshman, the student is assigned to a faculty adviser 
who meets with him as needed during the year. The Freshman finds his 
adviser willing to guide and assist in the many problems that confront a 
new college student. 

Psychological Services 

The college provides a program of psychological services under the di- 
rection of a qualified clinical psychologist. 

The Psychological Services Center provides limited diagnostic and psy- 
chotherapeutic services to all students desiring help in the solution of 
emotional and behavioral problems. Under certain circumstances psycho- 
logical testing is offered. Any student member of the college community 
desiring either psychological counseling or an informal consultation may 
use the services of the clinic. Students are charged for therapy extending 
beyond three sessions. 

Study Skills Center 

A series of study skills sessions are scheduled as the need arises under 
professional direction. Groups of six to ten students are enrolled for a 
series of six to ten hours in each session. They include sessions on reading 
skills, test-taking, note-taking, psychological blocks to studying, etc. 

Reading Improvement Course 

A course designed to improve reading skills is offered at various times dur- 
ing the academic year. Skilled instructors teach students how to improve 
reading speed and comprehension in short courses which span a six-week 
period— four one-hour periods each week. A student who is deficient in 
reading skills may sign up for this course on a voluntary basis. The charge 
is $50.00. Information is sent to the students during the summer. 

Placement Services 

The Placement Office, located on first floor of Long Hall, assists the stu- 
dent in each of the following areas: 

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

2. Providing information about graduate school programs, scholarships, 
and assistantships 

3. Offering information on vocational opportunities, employer literature, 
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 teach- 
ers. Over 3500 positions in the eastern states are Usted yearly in the 
Education Office.

college campuses and by sending student credentials to prospective employ- 
ers, the Placement Office opens broader vocational opportunities to grad- 
uates seeking employment.

The Alumni Association 

The Alumni Association of Lycoming College has a membership of over 
six thousand men and women. It is governed by an Executive Board of five 
oflBcers and twenty-one members nominated and elected by the membership. 
It elects annually a member to the Board of Directors of the College for a 
three-year term. The Director of Alumni Affairs directs the activities of the 
Alumni Office. 

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

The Alunini Office is located on the first floor of Long Hall. Arrangements 
for Homecoming, Alumni Day, Class Reunions, club meetings and similar 
activities are coordinated through this office. There are active alumni clubs 
in Harrisburg, Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, State College, 
Northern New Jersey, Rochester, Schenectady, Syracuse, Connecticut, Bal- 
timore, and Washington, D. C. 

Lycoming College holds Class A, B, and C memberships in the American 
Alumni Council. Through its Alumni Fund, the Alumni OflBce is closely 
associated with the development program of the college. 

Acting as the representative of alumni on the campus, and working also 
with undergraduates, the Alumni Office aids in keeping alumni informed 
and interested in the program, growth and activities of the college. 

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