Plays tennis, and baseball in an over-28
wood-bat league
This past summer, I was the No. 1 singles player
on a 2.5 Men’s United States Tennis Association
Team out of Camp Hill, Pa. We won our local league
and the Middle States Championships at Princeton
University in N.J., which sent us to the 2011 USTA
League 2.5 National Championships in Ranch Mirage, Calif. We beat teams from
Alabama, Florida and Washington before falling in the national title match to Puerto
Rico. Also, I play for the Newville Pirates of the Pennsylvania Midstate Baseball League
in the Harrisburg-area. In 2010, I was the batting champion of the league and have
consistently been in the top 10 each year.”   
Dr. Michelle Briggs
Assistant professor of biology
I collected house plants when I was in high
school but didn’t like gardening until I owned my
own house. I love working out frustrations planting
and weeding a lot more than I like cleaning house.
While I used to grow only perennial flowers, I am
branching out into edibles – raspberries, strawberries,
blueberries and asparagus. You can’t beat eating a sun-warmed, organic fruit directly off
the vine!”

ehind every great
organization is a
talented and resilient
workforce. Such is
the case at Lycoming College.
The roughly 300 members of the
faculty and staff dedicate their
days, and often nights, to making
sure 1,400 students have the best
opportunity to learn and live in
an academic utopia based in the
liberal arts and sciences.
At the end of the day, after
grading that one last writing
assignment, making a follow-up
call to a donor or sending out yet
another financial aid commitment
letter, they retreat to their homes
in Williamsport, or one of the
many quaint towns surrounding
it, such as Hughesville or
Montoursville, to reenergize for
what lies ahead on campus the
next day.
For many, that precious “me
time” is often used to delve into
in their favorite pastime. The
following is a glimpse at what
Lycoming’s devoted employees
enjoy doing while away from their
livelihood at 700 College Place.
