The Lyco Lowdown: An Insider's View of Life at Lycoming

First week on the Job...

Posted by Melissa Bilza on Jul 19, 2017 2:27:01 PM

It’s my second summer returning to my internship and I love it. I am a Public Affairs Intern at a medical device company in Center Valley, PA. I work with the Corporate and Medical Communications Team in projects related to social media, public relations, government affairs, corporate communications, etc. This summer, I elected to work 40-hours a week, Monday through Friday with 9am to 5pm workdays. I love working full-time and enjoying this feeling of consistency and structure. I enjoy the 20-minute commute to work every morning as opposed to having a five minute walk to class to clear my head. I have my own laptop and desk phone in my cubicle, a place that is my own personal space to complete my work. I book all of my meetings on Lotus Notes (similar to Microsoft Outlook), and I regularly go out to lunch with coworkers.

Reflections on Commencement 2017

Posted by Dr. Kent Trachte on Jun 3, 2017 9:45:34 AM

Commencement 2017 was a memorable one. Rainy weather forced us inside for only the second time in two decades. For the first time since being renamed, the Keiper Recreation Center served as the venue for the ceremony. Preserving a long-standing tradition, several trustees and I led the class through the Metzler Gate despite the inclement weather.

Honors Societies at Lycoming College

Posted by Montana Crossman on May 30, 2017 11:08:40 AM

             You may remember an honor society from your high school, either local or national, or you may have even been in the honor society. Here at Lycoming, and at most colleges across the nation as well, there is not one singular honors society, but around twenty-two different societies, usually based on discipline. These honor societies are usually chapters (local divisions) of the larger honors society. So, for example, the Lycoming College chapter of the national Religious and Theology Studies Honors Society (Theta Alpha Kappa) is named Alpha Theta Gamma.

When a Warrior meets a Berliner

Posted by Nam Do on May 22, 2017 10:33:09 AM

It has been three months since I moved to Berlin. Life was not so easy at first, but I have now gotten used to it. The city is certainly much different from Williamsport, the home of Lycoming College. There have been so far some aspects which I like and also those that I do not enjoy as much, but I would like to talk about all of them either way, because –who knows –maybe one day you will also decide to study abroad in Germany.
