As Lycoming College Freshmen, your world will change on Friday, August 23, 2013 when you become official members of the Class of 2017. Your educational experience will be different than high school, your friends will change and for some of you, your living environment and connections to your family will change. As you cross the threshold to Lycoming College, may you contribute to your new world as it contributes to your personal growth and knowledge. Lycoming College initiated its freshman welcome experience in 1989; this year our three day program will include seminar sessions conducted by our faculty and staff which are designed to help you successfully make the transition from high school to college.
One highlight of 1st Weekend is our New Student Convocation Ceremony which will be held on Friday, August 23, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. Family and friends are invited to attend this ceremony which officially opens our academic year and welcomes the newest members of the Lycoming College community. A reception for new students and their families hosted by the president of the college immediately follows the ceremony.
