Since the moment I arrived at Lycoming College I loved the very friendly environment on campus. Everyone is very friendly and outgoing, and you feel comfortable stepping out of your boundaries because everyone is very accepting. Also, the professors are very caring and understanding when it comes to assigning homework assignments. They really try to give us all the available resources so that we can get good grades in tests and assignments.

The professors at Lycoming College are some of the nicest, helpful, and most intelligent people I have ever met. It is so easy to drop by a professor's office just to have a conversation. These are the conversations that really help to shape your future and enhance your time here. There are many many student interest groups on campus, from campus ministry, to 9 different greek organizations, to many community service programs, it is hard NOT to find a place to fit in. Although the work load may be difficult, professors are ALWAYS here to help, as well subject tutors, and even librarians.
