Lycoming College is a four-year, nationally recognized, liberal arts and sciences college. U.S. News and World Report lists us among the top 150 colleges in the country. Our College was founded in 1812 making us the 50th oldest college or university in the U.S.

In America, a liberal arts and sciences college is at the same academic level and quality as our larger universities. Our students take many courses within their major program, like business, accounting, economics, communication and biology, but they also take courses in writing, mathematics, arts, sciences, history, religion and philosophy.

We are a residential college which means we provide lodging and dining services for all of our 1,300 students. In addition to quality living and dining opportunities, Lycoming offers superior academic and recreational facilities.

Our students stay active by joining our more than 80 clubs and organizations and 17 sports teams.

Our campus is located in scenic Williamsport, Pennsylvania, just a three-to-four hour drive to three of America’s great cities: New York City, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia.
