      • Testimony
        1965-1969, BS, Music Education

        The biggest influence on my wonderful career as a high school band director, college professor and professional musician was the education that I received at Lebanon Valley College and in particular to Dr. James Thurmond and Professor Frank Stachow, among others. I also cherish the fond memories I have of my circle of friends. (We were called "the mafia") We get together every few years and fondly recall our experiences as though they just happened. As the commercial says, "Priceless!"

      • Testimony
        1988-1992, BA, English

        LVC was an unlikely choice for me, coming from a family where both my parents and 3 out of 4 siblings graduated from Ivy League schools. LVC gave me an education that was more valuable outside the classroom than I could have ever imagined. When I moved to NYC right after college I was prepared to collaborate and communicate with all types of people. LVC provides a quality education, both in and out of the classroom. Having the College on my resume has never limited me in the 20+ years I have spent in NYC. It has only opened doors.

      • Testimony
        2002-2006, B.S., Spanish

        I knew Lebanon Valley College was the right place for me from my first visit to the campus. As a native of New York State, I had never heard of it. I had found the school on the college board website. LVC was definitely the right choice. The faculty are caring, but push you to perform your best. The music program is outstanding and welcoming to non-music majors, something that was very important to me. I also found an amazing community of friends in the activities at Miller Chapel, many of which I am still in contact with today. I enjoyed the area so much, I came back to make central PA my permanent home in July of 2013. My call to ministry was fostered by both the chaplains who worked at LVC during my four years there. I am pleased to be able to give back to the Central PA community in my current role as the Director of Children's Ministries at the Carlisle United Methodist Church.
