Why I Chose Lycoming

Posted by Schai Bilger on Dec 29, 2016 9:02:32 PM

Choosing a college is never easy. As a senior in high school, my search for the perfect school was challenging. I knew I wanted to study art and become an art educator. My ultimate goal for the future is to be a children's book author and illustrator. So as I looked into different schools, I paid particular attention to each school's art program as well as the education programs they offered.

My SOS Leadership Experience

As the emails from Dean Kilpatrick have been flooding in about applying to be a Student Orientation Staff (SOS) member, I can't help but be excited for those considering the position. Applying to be a SOS member for the summer of 2016 was a great decision and led to some of my favorite memories from Lycoming so far. Through SOS, I have learned many new leadership skills, gained lifelong friends, and was able to meet mostly everyone in the class of 2020!

I Am a Tour Guide, I Am Lycoming

Posted by Julia Suchanek on Nov 1, 2016 12:00:00 PM

The first representation of Lycoming College that a prospective student receives is often from their tour guide.  With that being said, being a tour guide is a huge responsibility. Not only do the guides have to entertain their tours, but they also have to provide them with correct information about the education, programs, clubs, activities, and sports teams Lycoming has to offer. Along with showing students the campus, there is a lot of behind-the-scenes work that student assistants do. Student workers also prepare letters and paperwork to send to perspective students all around the country and the world. Admissions counts on their student workers to be the face of Lycoming, and what might seem like a lot of responsibility is actually just pure fun.
