Page Background

the College initiated a strategic-planning

process to identify ways to sustain, deepen

and enhance the academic experience of our students. The planning

process involved about half of the faculty and a significant number

of our staff, all participating in working sessions that gathered

data, expert opinions and community input. These working groups

proposed compelling ideas for new programs and concepts for

expanding our existing ones — programs that will propel our

students into careers of significance and lives of meaning.

This broadly inclusive planning process culminated in our Strategic

Plan, a vision for Lycoming that has created an air of excitement

and a sense of optimism across the campus community.

ENROLLMENT

Lycoming College welcomed 377 new students to campus during

its annual New Student Convocation on Aug. 21. The traditional

held on the college’s upper quad near Clarke Chapel.

The class of 2019 includes 347 freshmen, 23 transfers and 7

international exchange students. Applications for admission increased

by 2.7 percent over last year and we admitted 20 more students.
