Rebecca Forbes '19
Financial Analyst, Alcoa Corporation
Studied: Quantitative Economics, Spanish, and Business Administration
"Right after graduating, I went to work in Alcoa's Financial Leadership Development rotational program, a two-year program consisting of four different positions within finance departments. The true benefit of my Lycoming education was learning how to learn in any area of study - I use that skill at my current job every day. Additionally, the ability to get to know professors and advisors both inside and outside of my areas of study on a personal level was instrumental in teaching me how to communicate effectively with people of authority, and has helped immensely when interacting with coworkers, bosses, and executives in the corporate setting.
I am so thankful for my time at Lycoming and the wide variety of opportunities I had - like traveling abroad, conducting research, singing in the choir, and more. Lycoming offers a true liberal arts experience, and I am so grateful for the people and opportunities that made my time there so meaningful."
Jordan Hollander '10
Deputy Attorney General, New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement
Studied: Political Science, French, and International Studies
"As a Deputy Attorney General, I conduct background investigations of individuals and companies involved in the gaming industry and prosecute violations. Throughout my professional career I've also published in law journals and presented at legal seminars. I was recently named to the '40 under 40 Emerging Leaders of Gaming' by the Innovation Group in Las Vegas, named a 'New Leader of the Bar' by the New Jersey Law Journal, and received an Attorney General Team Award for Excellence.
It is hard to imagine my life and career now without my experiences and education at Lycoming. The liberal arts program allowed me to pursue my own academic interests in a supportive community, all while playing on the golf team, studying abroad, and singing internationally with the College choir. Lycoming provided me with the foundation to pursue graduate studies, and I still apply many of the lessons I learned there at my current job. I remain in touch with many of my professors and continue to learn from them, even years after graduating."
Zachary High '18
Fulbright Scholar & entering Penn State College of Medicine in 2020
Studied: Biology and Spanish
"As people are the center of medicine, I hope to provide more holistic care by better understanding the diverse contexts from which patients come. I am excited by the opportunity to live and work in Vietnam as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant before beginning my medical studies. I believe this experience will be incredibly rewarding, both personally and professionally."
Nicole Calella '17
Officer, Supreme Court Police
Studied: Criminal Justice and Sociology
"I knew I wanted a federal-level career, but I never anticipated having the opportunity to work in Washington, D.C., so quickly after graduating college. Recruiters from the Supreme Court Police came to Lycoming College for a career fair and I was excited my college gave me this opportunity, so I applied. From there, I passed the next steps required and got the job! A major part of my job involves interacting with the Supreme Court Justices regularly; I'm incredibly proud and honored to protect them at the Supreme Court and in the community."
Caroline Iglio '04
Foot & Ankle Surgery Resident, Western Pennsylvania Hospital
Studied: Biology and Chemistry
"I liked the small class sizes at Lycoming. As a student, you feel like part of a family instead of just a number. Professors have a vested interest in you and your success because they know you as a person, not just a face in a lecture hall. My proudest professional accomplishment after graduating from Lycoming was when I opened my own podiatry practice…by having a foundation in more than just science, I was able to take that leap to be both a doctor and a businesswoman."
Sara Iglio '04
Dentist, Stroudsburg Family Dental
Studied: Biology and Chemistry
"The Lycoming education I received prepared me well for the classes I took in dental school. While attending Lycoming, I was able to focus on my own projects, such as the link between periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease for my Lycoming Scholars presentation, and the amount of water fluoridation in Williamsport for my analytical chemistry class. The best thing, however, was the liberal arts education I received. It provided me with a well-rounded knowledge base which allows me to relate and communicate with people on a wide range of topics. It really helps with bedside manner!"
