One of the primary institutional
priorities is to offer a distinguished liberal
arts and sciences education to promising
students regardless of their ability
to afford tuition. Lycoming remains
committed to its tradition of providing
access to students regardless of financial
capacity. Since 2008-09, the financial aid
budget has been increased by almost $7
million for a 41% increase. Ninety-five
percent of Lycoming’s students qualify
for financial aid; 35% are Pell-eligible
and nearly 30% are first-generation
college students.
Campus Life
– Lycoming is committed to
offering a vibrant, residential community
where 85% of the students live on
campus. Outside of their academic
endeavors, students are encouraged to
participate in co-curricular activities
to further enhance their overall
collegiate experience. A host of learning
opportunities exist within the residence
halls, national fraternities and sororities,
performing arts, publications, and
intramurals. The music program is a
popular draw for students and features
both a Concert Band and the widely
acclaimed Tour Choir, which has
performed around the United States and
in Argentina, Canada and Europe.
Lycoming’s highly-successful
intercollegiate athletic program is
well integrated with the mission of the
College. The Warriors compete at the
NCAA Division III level in 17 varsity
sports (9 for men and 8 for women)
within the Middle Atlantic Conference.
Thirty-one percent of the full-time
student body participates in varsity
athletics.
Students also are actively engaged
in the community. Opportunities to
learn outside the classroom are readily
available through various internships
and practicums, and students support
numerous local businesses, non-profits,
and governmental agencies by logging
roughly 30,000 community service hours
each year.
Faculty and Staff
– One of Lycoming’s
most recognizable educational
advantages is that it firmly stands behind
the traditional liberal arts and sciences
model, characterized by small classes
taught by full-time faculty. More than
90% of the College’s classes are led by
81 full-time faculty members who make
teaching their priority. Lycoming also
remains dedicated to giving its students
the advantage of a highly-credentialed
faculty, 94% of whom hold the highest
degree in their field. Thanks to the
College’s intimate learning environment
that features a 14-to-1 student-faculty
ratio, students receive individual attention
in and outside of the classroom and enjoy
the benefits of high-quality interactions
with faculty.
In its 2011 reaccreditation report,
the Middle States visiting team noted
the significance of Lycoming faculty’s
enthusiasm for the mission of the
institution and general contributions to
the life of the College. The team also
highlighted the successful involvement
of faculty in student retention and the
climate of respect fostered through
campus programming.
