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

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
