Lycoming College is a place where students think deeply and act boldly in preparation for careers of significance and lives of meaning. Founded in 1812, we are among the nation's oldest liberal arts and sciences institutions, but we provide a cutting-edge, 21st-century focused education that immerses students in experiential learning opportunities like internships, fieldwork, student-faculty research, and global study.
With more than 100 majors, minors, and programs, Lycoming students can craft a customized, cross-disciplinary, and market-driven program tailored to their unique interests and career goals. As a solely undergraduate institution with a student to faculty ratio of just 12:1, we give students access to nationally-recognized faculty and advanced equipment from day one. Our small class sizes foster workshops, hands-on labs, and discussion-based learning.
Innovation and creativity permeate not only our curriculum, but the entire student experience. Living learning communities, an Outdoor Leadership and Education program (with survival skills transferable far beyond the wild), our Warrior Coffee service-learning enterprise, the Clean Water Institute, and Institute for Management Studies allow students to not only learn their passion, but live it. On campus, the already tight-knit community is strengthened through more than 80 clubs and organizations, as well as 17 NCAA Division III intercollegiate sports teams. It is often said that at Lycoming, it's not a matter of if you'll get involved, but how much.
Lycoming isn’t somewhere you are — it’s something you do. We’re some of the nation’s best and brightest – working hard, discovering talents, changing the world, and enjoying every minute of it. Join in. For us, being involved isn’t a matter of if, but a matter of how much.
The mission of Lycoming College is to provide a distinguished baccalaureate education in the liberal arts and sciences within a coeducational, supportive, residential setting.
