Our Mission

The Mission of the Office of Residential Life is to support the overall vision of Lycoming College by providing a living environment that encourages academic success, fosters leadership and cultivates citizenship.

To this end, we aim to:

  • Provide a safe and secure residential environment.
  • Offer an environment which supports and recognizes resident student academic achievement.
  • Hire and develop a staff of student leaders who are committed to the education and development of their peers and themselves.
  • Facilitate educational and social programming that furthers the building of community and provides life skills that are transferable to the workforce and to life in general.
  • Create an atmosphere that promotes the rights and obligations of living in a diverse community where self-responsibility and mutual respect are encouraged and expected.
  • Continually define and refine how we endeavor to meet the needs of the students we serve.
