Having grown up in the local area, I was familiar with the reputation of excellence that Lycoming College holds. When my oldest brother began attending the college in 2004, I had the opportunity to experience the campus environment even before I started searching for a college. I was drawn to Lycoming by the strong community, academic excellence, and beautiful campus. I was seeking a college that would offer me an opportunity to pursue my own success, and Lyco was the perfect fit for that goal.
My decision to attend Lycoming was affirmed continuously throughout my time at the college. I was given the opportunity to not only be challenged academically, but also to become a part of the community: I worked for many different offices on campus, served on committees, and got to know and live with close friends. I served as a Resident Advisor and Student Orientation Staff member, and also worked with senior administrators in the college's decennial reaccreditation process, in which I learned even more about the college's success and plan for the future. As an economics major, I not only received a great education, but also was given the opportunity to apply my education in a research project with Dr. Mehrdad Madresehee, the chair of the economics department. My four years were filled with fun activities, interesting academic opportunities and many amazing friends. Lycoming College has been an incredible experience for me, and I am excited to assist others in creating their own experience at the college.
Drew graduated in 2011 with a B.A. in Economics.

It seems hard to believe it has been 10 years since my husband, two sons and I first encountered Lycoming. We were on a Pennsylvania college search trip for our older son, Tom, and Lycoming was one of four schools we were going to be looking at over a five-day period. Since this was our first child to go through this process, I did not know what to expect. From the moment we walked through the front door at the Admissions House, we were made to feel like our son was the only applicant. After our visit, no other college came close in comparison.
Throughout Tom's four years as a student at Lycoming, I had bragged to everyone I knew about this wonderful little college in Pennsylvania. At the time, I had been a stay-at-home mom, very involved with the Parent Teacher Association and part-time jobs. At our son's graduation from Lycoming, there was a reception for the students that had been movers and shakers on campus. At the reception, I made a comment to the Assistant Director of Admissions that if they were ever looking for a local representative, I would love to apply for the job. Two months later, I met with our Director and the next week, began employment as an Admissions Counselor. Since being hired five and a half years ago, my younger son, Greg, has also gone to and graduated from Lycoming. I can honestly say this is the best job I have ever had because I believe in Lycoming and have seen the product it produces.
It has been my pleasure to introduce Lycoming to the high school students of Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. As my older son put it, "Lycoming is a diamond in the rough."

Making the transition from my small town life in Rome, Pa., to living on my own at college was an overwhelming task. When I visited Lycoming College for the first time I was awed by the beauty of the campus and thrilled to learn about the traditions and the sense of community that are unique to Lycoming. It made my first few weeks of college life so much easier knowing that I would be able to find my way around campus easily and that my professors would know who I am.
Throughout my time at Lycoming, I created my college family. We would eat together, walk to class together, hang out on the Quad together and even after we all graduated from college, we still get together for “family” dinners, especially around Thanksgiving! The residential campus meant that there was always someone around, anytime of day and every weekend.
As a student who was undecided and unclear as to what future I wanted for myself, I took advantage of the services provided by Lycoming College in helping students choose a major. Through those services I made the tough decision to transfer and pursue a degree in Recreation Management at Lock Haven University. Though I loved my coursework at Lock Haven, I missed my Lycoming family and spent most of my free time in Williamsport, back in the Lycoming community. The transfer made me realize how lucky I was to have a foundation in the liberal arts education that gave me the opportunity to learn a lot about every area of study.
I’ve seen the high-quality education students receive from Lycoming College; and I know first-hand about the opportunities for involvement within the college community. I was involved with Campus Activities Board, Dance Club, United Campus Ministries and Recreation Society, to name a few. I am thrilled to be working for Lycoming College, and I can’t wait to meet and work with the students from New York and Northeast and Reading, Pa.
Anna holds a B.S. in Recreation Management from Lock Haven University.

I can still remember the first time I walked down College Place as a prospective student. As I walked to the Drum Admission House, I was in awe at the beauty of Lycoming’s campus. At first, I was surprised that several students acknowledged me with a warm greeting as I passed by, but I soon discovered that this was simply the way of life at Lycoming College. The friendliness, charisma and sincerity of the campus community, along with the superior academics, and unsurpassed faculty ultimately led me to make my college choice: Lycoming.
When I look back on the years I have spent as a student, I can describe countless experiences that I doubt I would have been able to have anywhere else. As a student, I gained valuable internship experience at Clyde Peeling’s Reptiland and went on a kayaking adventure where I was able to demonstrate water sampling techniques to the local community. I was able to serve my campus community outside of the classroom as a Resident Advisor, a member of Play by Faith Ministries, and by being involved in many other clubs and organizations. As a varsity athlete, I was privileged to compete on our Women’s Basketball and Softball teams and proudly wore Lycoming’s blue and gold.
What I love most about being an admissions counselor is getting to know our prospective students and their families; every student is unique and I love learning about each of them! I greatly look forward to meeting students and families from the state of New Jersey and showing them everything I love about Lycoming College. When I’m not getting to know future Lycoming College Warriors, I am still involved with Williamsport and the surrounding community. Some of my favorite activities include running along the Susquehanna River, biking on the trails in Williamsport, coaching at the middle school and high school level, serving my church family and reading.

After graduating from Lycoming in 2004, it was a privilege to accept a position with the Office of Admission at my alma mater. A graduate of North Hunterdon High School in Clinton, N.J., I came to Lycoming as a freshman because I was immediately drawn to the beautiful campus, friendly atmosphere, and I could continue my interest in performing music and community service. I found that Lycoming provided me with an excellent education which prepared me to pursue my Master's Degree in Higher Education at Bucknell University. I also had the opportunity to meet some great people who are now my closest friends and graduated with a lot of wonderful memories. Thanks to Lycoming College, I was able to continue my passion for jazz music by playing the trumpet with the college's Jazz Ensemble, volunteer some time by working with the youth in the Greater Williamsport Area and build houses with Habitat for Humanity in Florida, Washington, New Mexico, Mississippi and South Carolina.
I currently work with students from the Greater Williamsport Area as well as students from the "Outside States". I still perform outreach with Habitat for Humanity and sit on the steering committee for the Williamsport/Lycoming Young Professionals. When I'm not assisting students, you can find me downtown with friends grabbing some dinner at one of our many eateries, catching a show at the Community Arts Center, or jogging, hiking, fishing, golfing and taking advantage of all the outdoor activities in Lycoming County.
