Student Development Officer (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – May 17, 2017
Depending on what department you are in, depends on what time of experience you have. Some positions are busier than others. For example, if you work in Infromational Technology versus the registrars office.

Telemarketer (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – March 24, 2016
I worked here when I attended school here. My work days were short and my classmates were also my co-workers. This was a difficult job only because of the constant hang-ups and short phone calls. I had i nice time and a wonderful working experience.
Lycoming College, more than a small liberal arts college
Adjunct Professor (Part-time) (Current Employee) – Williamsport, PA – May 24, 2015
Working here has been a growing experience and enriched my life in ways I didn't expect. The size of the school allows for getting to the heart of learning on an individual level. The community is extremely supportive. This is fertile ground for reaching one's goals.
Beautiful place, supportice faculty and staff, knowageable academics
Director (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – December 4, 2014
For my final college project, I directed and designed two separate productions at the same time. I learned managing and planning skills along with the full directing and design process including presenting thematic ideas, creating prompt books, analyzing scripts, casting actors, and more. The theatre department is extremely supportive and I am glad to have had such a strong collaborative team. The hardest part of the job was balancing hours of planning and rehearsals with life, as rehearsals would often last until later than 11:00pm after a day of classes. The most enjoyable part of the job was watching the evolution and improvement of the shows and seeing the final products.
small classes, collaborative teams, hands-on experience, multitasking
Music Department: great faculty, mediocre students
Piano Teacher/Accompanist (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – May 23, 2014
Lycoming College offers wonderful opportunities for students that want to pursue music professionally within the Williamsport area. The small school size fosters relationships between students and faculty that would normally not be found at a larger school. This close contact between student and faculty makes it easier for the student to excel. However, most of the students do not have standard college level knowledge and/or skills. The music department has only about a dozen music majors out of 1500 students. The skill level of the students in the ensembles matches that of a serious middle school or an average high school.
Music (Jazz) Historian/Librarian (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – May 20, 2014
Considering this was a work-study type of job, my experience was not bad. I had originally fallen into this position when the previous Historian/Librarian graduated and chose me as her replacement. The work is easy (although tedious) and having the ability to work around my own schedule was a plus. As long as the work gets done nobody really cares when exactly it got done. That freedom of choosing my own hours did have a slight negative effect though - I learned the hard way in my first week or so that you cannot slack off too much. I had to rush to make sure everything was ready for practice. After vowing to never do that again, I eventually fell into a routine which allowed me freedom in my schedule yet left me with enough time to get everything done. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was being able to be a part of the performance behind-the-scenes. While I was in the ensemble itself, I gained a certain satisfaction from knowing I was also helping to improve the group by working with the conductor(s) and choosing the music, etc.
Video Spokesperson, Tour Guide, Writing Tutor (Current Employee) – College Relations, Admissions, Writing Center – January 28, 2014
As a student and an employee of Lycoming College, I've developed a cacophony of professional skills. From working directly with the marketing department as a video spokesperson to produce informative, yet fun online videos to working one-on-one with fellow students in Lycoming's writing center as a writing tutor, I've learned almost as much from my work experiences as I have from my individual classes.
