Q: Why did you choose to go to Lycoming College?
A: I chose Lycoming College for a couple of reasons. The staff I met up there were really great people, and the campus itself is very nice. The school is known for its liberal arts which is what I plan to go into. Conveniently, my sister lives right beside campus, so I don’t have to worry about the expense of the dorms.
Q: What are you majoring in or planning on studying at Lycoming College?
