Williamsport, Pa.
– Lycoming is located in
historic downtown Williamsport in north
central Pennsylvania. The picturesque
Bald Eagle Mountain range serves as
a backdrop to the campus and city,
which are situated near the banks of the
Susquehanna River. Roughly a three-hour
drive from Philadelphia, Williamsport
is a bustling city of 35,000 and serves
as the county seat of Lycoming County,
home to more than 115,000 people. The
metropolitan area has grown significantly
in recent years, driven by the natural
gas industry. Susquehanna Health, the
county’s three hospital integrated health
system, is the region’s largest employer
with more than 3,000 employees.
Williamsport’s business district
is dotted with many unique shops
and diverse dining options. The city
hosts a burgeoning arts community.
The Community Theatre League and
Williamsport Symphony Orchestra are
known for their quality performances,
and top-notch entertainment can be
found at the majestic Community
Arts Center. The area also is rich with
seasonal outdoor recreational activities.
Once dubbed the “Lumber Capital of the
World” in the late 1800s, Williamsport
is now internationally recognized as
the “Home of the Little League World
Series.”
Lycoming enjoys a strong sense of
well-being and consensus regarding its
commitment to mission, the centrality
of the liberal arts, its focus on student
development, the strength of its campus
community, and the enviable fiscal
stability it has achieved. This array of
foundational qualities along with the
prospects for Lycoming’s exciting future
under President Trachte’s leadership offer
the new Vice President for Enrollment
Management a strong base from which to
lead the enrollment sector.
