Lycoming is full of opportunity whether it’s through your classes or organizations on campus. When I decided to start my own organization in my junior year, the faculty and staff were tremendously supportive in helping my plans become a reality. Now I can thank LyComm for being a huge conversation piece that helped me land my first job!
