Celebrating a Greater Lycoming College

The Campaign for a Greater Lycoming was the College's most ambitious fundraising initiative in its history. With a goal to raise at least $65 million, Lycoming challenged its alumni, parents, and friends to Dare to Dream about creating an even greater institution. The Campaign concluded on June 30, 2019, and at an event held during Homecoming & Family Weekend on October 5, 2019, the College celebrated its extraordinary success, announcing it had exceeded its initial goal with more than $79 million in total support to the Campaign.

The Inspiration

Ashley Heisler ’20

Accounting major and German minor

“I am so grateful to Lycoming College and career advisor Anne Landon for finding the United States Government Accountability Office internship opportunity for me, and for shaping me into the student and young professional that I have become during my time here. Not only did I gain vital experience with both the planning and internal controls phases of an audit, but I was also able to test my time management, multi-tasking, and collaboration skills to prioritize and complete my work within deadlines, and ensure my team remained on track with the audit plan.”

Jalen Williams ’21

Criminal Justice major

“I've been empowered to focus on my academics by the support I have received from Lycoming, and my leadership and participation in organizations here have also helped me show others who I am more fully as a person. There's a widening gap of the sense of responsibility for each other and ourselves, and to achieve our goals, we need to work together while maintaining faith in what we know we can accomplish.”

Mikayla Feldbauer ’20

Interdisciplinary major in Biology, Mathematics, and Computer Science

“My favorite thing about my internship experiences has been talking to other people in the labs and learning about their research. It has been awesome to see what they are working on, because it gives me an idea of what I could do in the future. I definitely want to go into the field of computational biology, possibly with a goal of pursuing a research career in industry. I'm really thankful for all the computational skills I gained at Lycoming, because they've set me up to do well in the field.”

Samuel Novoa ’20

Creative Writing and English Literature major

“Poetry holds the power to be universal. It really interested me that I could create stories of anyone, real or fictional, in such a way that anyone can still find an emotional connection to the work. Lycoming College has been a boon to both my artistic and academic ability. With the help of Dr. Feinstein and Dr. Hawkes, the quality of my poems and short stories has improved far more than I ever could have thought was possible.”
