Posted by Dr. Kent Trachte on Nov 27, 2017 11:30:00 AM

Tax reform has been central to the national political dialogue for the past month.

While the two bills differ in significant ways, both contain provisions that would likely have an adverse impact upon families that send their children to private institutions as well as direct adverse implications upon Lycoming and other independent colleges.

The Perfect Spot for a Perfect Night...

Posted by Jae Ellison on Nov 3, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Guiding in the outdoors has taught me many things over the past 11 years. First, when I tell people that I work professionally in the outdoor field, I can count the breaths until I get the usual questions: Are you afraid of bears? Have you ever been struck by lightning? How do you go to the bathroom? The answers to the first two are "no", and the latter, well -- that is a story for a different day.

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.

smART Day One

Posted by Schai Bilger on May 10, 2017 9:10:10 AM

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!
