So underrated! Within the past 4 years this college has changed drastically--and for the better! I'm so impressed by the resources that are now available, especially for internships, study abroad and career services. Lycoming has a history of getting the best professors. They are experts, published, and are willing to go out of their way to help you succeed if you have the drive; some will even invite you to their house for dinner! Like many have said, it's like a family. I couldn't be happier with my choice!

The environment felt very welcoming and I quickly connected with the people I met. The students are staff were so kind and had a great energy about them. (The creative writing professor gave a vintage copy of one of my favorite books and I was so honored.) The clubs offered are wonderful and create a safe zone for people from all walks of life. I can't wait to go there in August!
The school is small so class sizes are not overwhelming. Also, it allows the professors to personally connect with their students, which can be very beneficial for students in the future for things such as recommendations for gradate school, internships, or even jobs.
