¡BUEN VIAJE!

Fulfilling its mission to

expand international study,

Lycoming has added yet

another study abroad option

for aspiring young scholars.

The College announced an

exchange agreement with

the Universidad Popular

Autónoma del Estado de

Puebla (UPAEP), paving the

way for Lycoming students

to enhance their studies with

travel to Puebla, Mexico, and

likewise for UPAEP students

to study at Lycoming.

Every year, through the

generosity of Mrs. Helen

Lowry, Lycoming’s Study

Abroad Ambassadors receive

financial support to study in

another country, and upon

their return, work on campus

to promote study abroad

opportunities for other

students.

Lycoming also

established international

study relationships with

Athena Study Abroad and

Université Grenoble Alpes

in Grenoble, France. With

these new additions, study

abroad options for Lycoming

students have expanded

to include opportunities

with institutions in China,

Australia, Argentina,

Germany, France, England

and more.
