Help us build a strong and lasting future. Together, we are Warrior Strong.

Your support changes lives.

Maryam Haytham Esmat '21

Maryam Haytham Esmat '21, an international student from Cairo, Egypt, is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in astrophysics with a mathematics minor, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in creative writing with a fiction track.

The highlight of my Lycoming education so far has been my research at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI). I grew up learning about space through STScI's public outreach articles online; through them I learned about the James Webb Space Telescope — which has been my favorite telescope since I was fifteen. Today, I get to be one of the people working on it at its very own headquarters. Helping scientists use the telescope's instruments to 'look back in time' to observe our universe as it was 13.5 billion years ago and observing planets outside of our solar system is all very wonderous!

I am grateful for the endless opportunities available at Lycoming. Your contributions to Lycoming support students like me and make a great difference in our Lycoming journey and future. For all this I say, 'Shokran,'' which is 'Thank You' in Arabic.

A Message from the President: Lycoming College prepares for the spring semester

In the October newsletter, I reflected upon the College’s planning for the fall semester and shared my hope that the semester would conclude successfully. I am now delighted to report to our alumni and friends that Lycoming College did complete the fall semester with students in residence and attending in-person classes. We also succeeded in keeping the community healthy; when final exams concluded, only nine students and six employees had tested positive, and all had recovered. I attribute this outcome largely to the culture of compliance with COVID protocols that our students created and sustained. It was their willingness to wear face coverings, physically distance, practice good hygiene, and avoid crowds that made a difference.
