About Lycoming College

Established in 1812, Lycoming College is one of the oldest colleges in the US. A private coeducational institution for undergraduates in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, it is linked to the United Methodist Church.

Formerly known as Williamsport Academy, Williamsport Dickinson Seminary and Williamsport Dickinson Seminary and Junior College, it acquired its current name in 1947, retaining its liberal arts and sciences specialism.

A small town in northern Pennsylvania, Williamsport partly grew because of its timber industry, and is the home of Little League Baseball, hosting the Little League Baseball World Series each year. Situated on the Susquehanna River, it is 100 miles north of state capital Harrisburg, 150 miles north west of Philadelphia and 200 miles north east of Pittsburgh.

Around two-thirds of its classes comprise fewer than 20 students, who obtain a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science upon graduation. The vast majority live on campus. Retention rates are relatively high.

Marketing, management, psychology, criminal justice, communications, archaeology and biology are some of Lycoming’s most popular subjects, though students have around 35 to choose from. More than 95% of graduates are in work or further study within six months of completing their studies.

Lycoming alumni include Eugene Louis Dodaro, the United States comptroller general, and John Jopson, a film director of One Night with Blue Note fame who also directed Hall & Oates, Herbie Hancock and Icehouse music videos.
