We call it tough love. It's a term we use to describe the commitment of our faculty to their students. Our teachers are relentless in their efforts to elicit your best work. It's what they do; this is their chosen profession and it's their goal to bring the passion of learning alive in you. Sure, there will be bumps along the way, but it's also the faculty who are the first line of support when you are having difficulty understanding an assignment or a problematic concept.

You won't find many lectures halls at Lycoming because much of our learning takes place by spirited discussions, collaborative learning, and one-to-one meetings with faculty members.
