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

The Lycoming College Student Recital

Posted by Amanda Goulden on Dec 7, 2016 2:00:00 PM

I just had my first piano recital at Lycoming College! I was both excited and nervous. I played a piece called “Puck” by Edvard Grieg. Puck is very energetic and full of character and it was a lot of fun to perform. The recital was in the Mary Lindsay Welch Honors Hall which is just across the street from where most of the buildings on campus are. I have gone to a few noon recitals in this building. A noon recital is when faculty members, students or invited musicians perform for students to attend.  It is also open to the surrounding community. Going to these recitals adds something new and different to your day and the musicians are always incredibly talented. I like that Lycoming offers a platform for so many people to display their talents and for the campus and community to be able to watch and appreciate their work.

The Baltimore Waltz

Posted by Briana Burley-Inners on Dec 2, 2016 12:06:15 PM

Our most recent theatre performance that was performed November 16th-19th, 2016 is “The Baltimore Waltz” by Paula Vogel and is the second play of the fall season. The show is seemingly a tragicomedy (comedy and tragedy all in one) about a first grade school teacher from Baltimore, Maryland named Anna. Anna embodies Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’ stages of grieving while she travels around Europe with her brother Carl with a hidden agenda in search of a cure for a deadly disease. Directed by Nigel Barnes, he asked his crew and cast to do some research on the show and related subjects, as well as find a personal connection with the show given that the show relates to death and dying. Thanks to this process, we had a deeper resonance with the meaning of the show and learned a lot about each other, including the strengths, weaknesses, and history of one another.

The Best of Lyco's Campus Activities Board

Posted by Amanda Goulden on Nov 11, 2016 12:15:00 PM

The other morning I got up at 5:00am. I got ready for the day, threw on some warm clothes, and (quietly) met my friends in the hallway. We trudged over to the balcony of the Wertz Student Center and waited outside in the freezing cold for over an hour. There were a bunch of other people waiting out there with us. People were in line in their pajamas and had blankets wrapped around them.
