Lycoming College Reviews
Lycoming College becomes a home. It is a great location for people who do not want a big city. It takes 2-5 minutes to get anywhere on campus, which makes it nice for when it rains (which is a lot). Teachers truly care about you which makes this school unique and very desirable.
At Lycoming College I received a Bachelor of Arts in History as well as a secondary teaching certification. I enjoyed my time a Lyco very much and would highly recommend both the school and the history program. I really enjoyed the distribution requirement of a Liberal Arts education because I was able to learn about a variety of topics that were not limited to just my major. The faculty and staff are excellent and the smaller student body make it easy to get to know many of your professors personally. It is not uncommon to be invited to a professor's house for dinner during your time at Lyco. The classes themselves are interesting, well taught, and challenging. The history program helped my hone my research and critical writing skills and gave me the tools I needed to further my career. The teaching program and professors are also excellent. I enjoyed my student teaching experience and came out of the program very content knowledgeable. That being said the program is different from other colleges where you can major in education. At Lycoming it is structured as a specialization so while it helped me meet the requirements for certification I think I could have benefited from a few more classes. As a whole my time and the education I received at Lycoming College were excellent!
Lycoming is not a place where you go to school, it is a home. It is a place where people strive to better each other and see success in everyone. The new slogan "I am Lycoming" is as accurate as can be. I was able to study abroad, take two internships, double major, attend valuable lectures, popular concerts, and be involved in campus activities and clubs. The food is rather expensive and not amazing, but if that does not bother you than nothing else really should. This school is small consisting of about1300 students who are pleasant and inclusive. The large LGBTQ, international, and minority presence on this campus makes the school unique in that it feels so diverse and inclusive. Our president seeks to listen to all the students and is quick to send a campus wide email to settle or comfort if problems arise within our campus, community, or country itself. Overall 9 out of 10 points. (Have to take a point off for the food.)
I came to a small, private liberal arts college in Pennsylvania and I was one of only two students from Texas that year. I loved my experience and wouldn't change anything. Since there are only 1500 students, we all got to know each other as well as the faculty. The admissions staff was awesome, and they personalized my tour of campus. I also got to sit in on a few classes. The campus is beautiful, too!
