smART is a series of one-hour art lessons that are facilitated by the future art educators in the Art History 310 course. The program was offered to any local students grades K-12 that are in public, private, or homeschooled. This is the first semester that Lycoming has held such an event for the students to practice teaching art to other students and has been well received throughout the Lycoming community. Surprisingly, registration for this event filled up in less than a day of it being available! As we started planning for this event, we were shocked by the number of people who want this type of program!
For the first three years of my college experience, we have had the same meal plan options. The old meal plans were each worth $2,797. The first of the previous two options gave students unlimited access to the cafeteria (meaning you could swipe into the cafeteria multiple times during the day) with around $100 of flex money, which could be used at either Jack’s Corner (the late-night fast-food place on campus) or Café 1812 (the coffee and sandwich place on campus). The second previous meal plan option gave you 14 meal slots a week (to be used at the cafeteria or the Café) and $150 in flex. Because of meal equivalency, there were times when you could get food at the Café instead of going to the cafeteria.
I am delighted to share the exciting news that Lycoming College has been selected as one of the newest additions to the Best 382 Colleges list published by the Princeton Review. In particular, the August 2018 edition, which will be available in August 2017, will feature Lycoming as one of six new schools receiving the Best 382 designation. This designation means that the Princeton Review regards Lycoming College as among the “cream of the crop” of undergraduate institutions in America.
A common grievance among most college students is required group projects, and Lycoming College is no exception. Every semester, in at least one class, I have been tasked with a group assignment. Although we understand the necessity of learning how to work together, it can be very frustrating when everyone isn’t on the same page. Group projects can either be successful or fail miserably. Looking back on my former group projects, I have bulleted a few things that I find lead to a more successful experience.
The further into the semester we get, the more stressed everyone becomes, especially now that the first projects are due and the first tests are coming up or have passed. I’ve learned over the past three years that stressing myself out doesn’t help anyone, especially myself. So, I’ve come up with a few things to do when I feel stressed and need a break.
