3 College Sophomore

Majors: I have a advisor that has helped me narrow down what would be the 'perfect fit for me" I have such a broad base of interests.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I enjoy my school and my classes very much

College Sophomore

Greek Life: No greek life at my school

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My mother basically had to do this because I wasn't sure about the finanical questions. Mom had a hard time as well, apparently some questions we misinterped. The school ended up giving a $1000 promise scholarship for the year, and our VSAC gave $750 for the year.

Campus Dining: The food on campus is available at less than conveinent times. If you live off campus with a kitchen, I highly suggest just buying food from White Market and cooking it yourself.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: For delicious and local foods, go to Cafe Sweet Basil.

For delicious pizza and Italian food, as well as the best service in town, go to Hoagie's Pizza and Pasta. (Some lighter ad healthier options as well).

If you want to eat pizza with a full bar but subpar service, go to Pizza Man.

Breakfast: the diner or Bagel Depot, (awesome bagels).

3 College Senior

Diversity: We're in rural Vermont, so there isn't a ton of diversity, but there is some. People seem to be accepting of all diversity as well.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Fairly average. If you want to party, there are plenty of places off campus.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Get in with the locals to hear about all the goods in this town! Just some to mention; Bread and Puppet theatre, Lake Willoughby and the surrounding mountains (Pisgah and Horr), Burke Mountain, Hill Farmstead, Jay Peak indoor water park, Kingdom Bike Trails.

Nightlife is not great by any means. Good house parties depending on the year, a couple local bars that are open on weekends. However, the music scene is thriving and plenty of opportunities and connections to be made to the music industry.

You can get the bare basics for shopping between Lyndon and Saint Johnsbury. The closest Wal-Mart is a good 40 mins away and Burlington is 1 hour and 45 minutes away, where there is lots of shopping to be had.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Looks are decent and getting better every year. Unfortunately there aren't many places to go on a good date around town. I would suggest doing something outdoors for a date. Skate park, swimming, hiking, rock jumping, climbing the tower at Burke (exceptionally romantic).

No one dresses super fancy at Lyndon so if fashion is your thing, you may be one of the only people dressed in vogue- most people wear long hoodies and snow pants.

For the most part, people are really laid back and awesome.

4 College Senior

Academics: Academics are hands-on and the teachers are well involved.

3 College Senior

Academics: Most popular degrees: Journalism, Music Business, Mountain Recreation Management, Meteorology.

The topics mentioned above are great. Good professors, hands on learning, average work load. Some classes may be easier than they are at other schools.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: You need to keep up with these things are seek help at Lyndon. Check in with students services often to make sure you are on track. If you put in the effort, they will try to help.

2 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics are lacking, people see them as a joke sometimes.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Such a supportive community of people, you really can't beat that. No matter who you are, you will feel welcome at Lyndon.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Lyndon State College has a beautiful campus with some of the most friendly and welcoming people you could imagine. There's a fabulous view of Willoughby Gap, Burke Mtn., and the town of Lyndonville. The people, for the most part, are passionate about being at Lyndon State College and who could blame them with majors such as Music Business, Recreation Management, Ski-Resort management, and many more. The president, Joe Bertolino, is caring and always pushing students forward. The facilities are not top of the line and some of the academic programs are lacking, but most are good. If you are thinking of applying to Lyndon, ask someone in that major how they like it! The only true way to know.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The school doesn't have a lot of money so the buildings aren't "top of the line", but who needs it? We're here to learn and they are nice enough to get us through.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The easiest way to get to campus if you don't have a car is either by bus or train. The vermont bus system has a station in St. Johnsbury as does the train and from there there is a shuttle which a student can use to get to campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Dining out is mostly limited to one of the four or five crappy pizza joints in the area.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: winter is harsh, spring and fall are pleasant enough if you have a good wind breaker. More warm weather would be nice, but it's the North East Kingdom of Vermont, cold kind of comes with the territory.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: there are three designated labs just for art students and between the three of them it is always possible to find an open computer. This fall our internet speed and bandwidth are increasing to 1,000megabit per second which will dramatically free up the network.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are no frats on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Every internship is unique, but with most majors on it is impossible to graduate without having had at least one internship. Art students especially are encouraged to participate in as many internships as possible to expand upon our network of contacts.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: My program is everything I could have hoped for in an illustration program. With more money for the department, it could be better but as it is I feel it is the best possible scenario for an art student with modest capital who actually wants to do something more productive with their art than just hang it on the wall.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The professors and the administrators are very much a part of the community on campus. They know that strictness will cause more problems than it will solve so the approach is more of a "we'll use the rules as a guideline, but each case is unique and must be treated as such". Strictness is a luxury of a large campus and a disconnected administration, a luxe that Lyndon State College cannot afford.
