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!

Lycoming College is amazing! I am so sad to be leaving shortly, especially with the new Gateway Building coming to completion this summer. There are big changes in store for this campus to help Lycoming become even greater. The professors are top notch and want to make connections with the students both inside and outside of the classroom.
Lycoming college is at the heart of Wiliamsport, PA. For those who do not like big cities, this city has more of a small town feeling. The campus itself feels like it isnt located in the center of a city duento its corporation of wildlife and nature. The staff are friendly, and become part of your family. The class sizes are small. The academics are excellent, and offer a wide range of opportunities, internshops, and study abroad options. The sports teams are excellent, and have a wide range of availability. The clubs are vast, and the college is always making room for more clubs to be added. The camous is very accepting of all views. The student population is very diverse. Overall, coming to lycoming, and being away from home for the first time, i have found a new home and lifelong friends.
