Student Philanthropy Ambassadors

Student Philanthropy Ambassadors are among the best and the brightest students at Lycoming College. Ambassadors assist in advancing the goals of the college through the Lycoming Fund, as well as through the Campaign for a Greater Lycoming. Our current ambassadors benefit greatly from the experiences shared with them during outreach opportunities, as well as all building their curriculum vitae with highly sought-after skills. Previous ambassadors have secured internships and job offers, as well as cultivated relationships with alumni, parents and friends of the College through their work in this program.
