A true chameleon when it comes to adapting to the times, Lackawanna College in Scranton, Pennsylvania was first Scranton Business College, then judged the word “business” to be too restrictive and dropped it from the name. During wartime, it adjusted its programs to meet the needs of returning veterans, and in the years to come would call itself Lackawanna Junior College and finally just Lackawanna College (as of 2001.) It currently enrolls 1,400 students via an open-admission policy, and offers vocation-centered programs in early childhood education, computer systems, law enforcement and many more fields. A prestigious Honors Program here offers honors-only classes for more individualized attention, and high school students can dual-enroll to receive college credits early at the main campus or at any of four satellite campuses. An active Student Life Department sponsors such clubs and organizations as The Answer Bible Study club, the New Media Technology Club and a chapter of the Phi Beta Lambda honors society. Most recently of all, Lackawanna has even created industry-specific degrees at its School of Petroleum & Natural Gas, to take advantage of opportunities at the nearby Marcellus Shale natural rock formations. It’s hard to dream of a better way to keep up with an ever-changing world than Lackawanna College.
