LYCOMING COLLEGE 2014 FALL MAGAZINE

This new interactive and multi-curricular facility will

not only serve Lycoming’s students and faculty, but also

benefit the greater Williamsport community as the college is

developing learning and discovery programs in collaboration

with the area’s school districts.

The facility will be named in honor of Board Chair Peter

Lynn ’69 and his wife, Joyce, who made this project possible

through their leadership gift. A second lead gift from Trustees

Jay Cleveland Sr. and Jay Cleveland Jr. ’88 and their wives,

Sandy and Mary, will name the Cleveland Atrium—the largest

interior space where students and the community will learn

and gather. With the support of the board of trustees and

the efforts of president emeritus James Douthat, who played

a major role in conceptualizing the center before retiring in

2013, the Lynn Science Center will be a great hallmark on the

Lycoming College campus for a lifetime.

Four chemistry

students will present

their work at the

annual University of

Maryland at Baltimore

County poster session

in October.

Six chemistry

students did research

off-campus, in projects

ranging from National

Science Foundation-

sponsored programs at Berkeley

and Michigan, to medical research

at Geisinger and the Canary Islands,

to research in industry at

Avery-Dennison and Norwich

Pharmaceutical.

Land that once served as a parking lot has been excavated, and will

serve as a hub for learning. Impact of the construction on the campus

and the surrounding community has been minimal. Once digging was

completed and gas lines were relocated, foundation and walls began to

quickly rise. Construction is expected to be completed by fall 2015.

We are especially interested in education

in the sciences, technology, engineering

and mathematics. We are honored to be

able to provide support for the construction

of the new science building.
