Favorite Thing About Lycoming: “During my last year at Lycoming College, I was able to utilize my liberal arts education to connect with more of the community. As a brother of Lambda Chi Alpha, I was able to give back to others through our annual canned food drive. For my practicum course, I visited the American Rescue Workers and assisted with resume-writing and provided career building advice. I directly experienced how this community gives back as well; my professors and advisors connected me with alumni who helped to sharpen my networking skills, which enabled me to compete in today’s job market. Lycoming College has provided me with the opportunity to make both professional connections as well as lifelong friendships.”
Future Plans: “I have accepted a sales administrator position with Ritz-Craft Corporation, a leading custom home manufacturer, through my business practicum internship. I start in May and am very excited about my employment opportunity and look forward to selling the American dream!”
