Class Notes submissions:
Lycoming College wants to join
you in celebrating your career and
life accomplishments. You may
wish to share information about a
birth, wedding, anniversary, career
move, retirement, life-changing
experience, etc. We reserve
the right to edit submissions to
meet Lycoming Magazine style
guidelines and space limitations.
Only activities that have already
taken place will be included in
Class Notes.
Photo submissions:
Please feel
free to submit printed and high-
resolution digital photos. Because
of space limitations, we cannot
publish every photo we receive,
but your chances improve if your
digital photos are of good quality
and at least 300 dpi at a canvas size
of 3x5. Lower resolution pictures
may look sharp on your computer
screen, but will not reproduce well
in the magazine.
Information received after Nov. 9,
2012, will be used in a future issue
of the magazine.
