SENIOR ART STUDENTS

SHOWCASED AT

LYCOMING COLLEGE’S

DOWNTOWN GALLERY

The Lycoming College Art

Gallery, located in downtown

Williamsport, hosted the

annual Senior Show, a

competitive exhibition that

showcases a cohesive body

of work and artist statement

by every Lycoming senior art

student, and is juried by an

outside expert. Throughout

the year the gallery hosts

various exhibitions as well

as visiting artists. Most

exhibits are free of charge

and open to the public. The

downtown location of the

gallery provides a window

into the Lycoming College

student experience for the

Williamsport community.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS

Winter camping,

backpacking and kayaking

are just a few of the events

that tested the mettle of the

intrepid as Lycoming College

launched its new Outdoor

Leadership and Education

program. Jae Ellison, the

program’s director, said

“There’s no better way

to teach innovation or

leadership than by offering

safely planned experiences

where students can test their

approach to leadership and

creativity by adapting to

new situations with limited

resources.” He plans to

work closely with faculty to

reinforce concepts learned

in classes as the program

continues.

NO SUBSTITUTE FOR

EXPERIENCE

Twenty-one Lycoming

students benefitted from

the 2015 Williamsport

Internship Summer

Experience (WISE) program,

gaining first-hand knowledge

in a professional area of

interest to them. WISE

acknowledges that internship

experiences are critical to

post-college job placement,

but are often non-paid

positions, which poses

hurdles for many students.

The WISE program seeks to

overcome internship barriers

by providing resources and

housing. Interns, the College

and business partners work

together to create specific

learning objectives to

maximize the experience for

each student.

WE MADE THE LIST!

Lycoming College was

named a “great college to

work for” by The Chronicle

of Higher Education, taking

honors in the “collaborative

governance” and “confidence

in senior

leadership”

categories.

Lycoming College students traveled to Shenandoah National Park for a six-day spring break backpacking trip as

part of the Outdoor Leadership and Education program.
