Lycoming also is fortunate to have a
strong team of committed administrators
and support staff who provide individual
attention and make sure the students are
given the best possible opportunity
to succeed on campus and after they
graduate.
Alumni
– A supportive alumni base of
more than 16,000 individuals excels in
a broad range of professions and holds
leadership positions across the U.S. and
internationally. Among them are the Hon.
Judge Marie White Bell ’58, retired,
New Jersey Superior Court; V. Chapman-
Smith ’72, regional strategic liaison at
ability to focus resources on the academic
program and student access. Since 2004,
Lycoming has enjoyed an “A” bond rating
by Standard & Poor’s; just 90 collegiate
institutions nationwide have received an
“A” or higher rating. The A bond rating
was reaffirmed in July 2013 when the
College issued additional debt to support
construction of a new science building
and renovation of residence halls. The
asset-to-debt ratios remain very strong
with total institutional debt of $45 million.
Lycoming’s fiscal position also has been
greatly helped by its strong endowment
that has grown to $176 million in 2013.
Campus
– Lycoming is situated on a well-
maintained 42-acre campus comprised
of 30 buildings, many of which feature
Georgian-style architecture. The Shangraw
Athletic Complex, located just north of
campus, offers an additional 12 acres. In
recent years, the campus was deliberately
expanded southward to more directly link
the College to the city center.
Since the early 1990s, tens of
millions of dollars have been spent to
construct new facilities and renovate
others. Recent additions include the
the National Archives at Philadelphia;
Gene Dodaro ’73, Comptroller General
of the United States and head of the
