Page Background

A key feature of the

new center is the

Detwiler Planetarium.

This advanced system’s

digital features provide almost

unprecedented new teaching

tools. Astronomical photographs

from the orbiting Hubble telescope

can be uploaded each day, and faculty

can zoom in on images of celestial bodies and

accurately manipulate their motions. This ability to scale

and render as never before gives students the chance to grasp

complicated astronomical concepts, and empowers faculty to immediately

incorporate topics in the news in astronomy and space exploration into

their lesson plans.

The building’s expansive Cleveland Atrium, a glass-enclosed space that

affords copious natural light to the interior for all who gather to work and

study in the new center, was made possible by a second lead gift from

trustees Jay Cleveland, Sr. and Jay Cleveland, Jr. ’88, and their wives,

Sandra and Mary.

THE POWER OF

GIFTS GREAT

AND SMALL

As planning for

the Lynn Science

Center progressed,

Lycoming College

reached out to alumni

for help to fund the

“Alumni Classroom.”

The response was

immediate and

overwhelming, with

alumni gifts of varying

denominations adding

up to nearly $110,000.

The support of so

many donors shows

the power of our

loyal and generous

alumni, who help keep

Lycoming a premier

academic institution

by providing

vital experiential

opportunities

for students. We

gratefully thank each

and every donor

who helped in this

outstanding project.
