3 College Freshman

Athletics: It's not a big part of student life.

Weather: The classes aren't far from my dorm so when the weather is bad you don't have to go far in it.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are labs in two out of the three buildings and printers in the dorms. WiFi is offered in every building, sometimes there are technical difficulties. You could survive with out a lap top but it's much easier with one of your own.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not really looked into off campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I have not made it very far into my major but I am confident that I will enjoy it.

4 College Freshman

Academics: For how small the school is they offer a lot of different classes and many majors and minors.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There a lot of the fast food chains and some unique restaraunts

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There is a lot of different students here but most are easy to get a long with and are willing to help or give advice if you need it.

College Freshman

Transportation: You need a car to get off campus but shuttles are not provided.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is kind of expensive but the rooms are a decent size. The school does a good job at making the freshman feel welcom.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is little or no campus crime and the campus security is easy to get a hold of if need be.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There aren't very many black people on campus. The sports teams account for the majority of black people. I see that as a very big problem on campus. The international students usually hang out together. I wish there were more diversity on campus. All but one of my friends are white. I don't know of any muslims on campus. Most people are of the same economic status. There aren't many extremely poor students. There are very few hispanics. I want to see more diversity on campus. I want to walk into a class and see people from every race. People of the same sexual orientation usually hang out together. Political beliefs are a nonissue on campus. Everyone gets along usually with regard to politics.

Drug Safety: There is access to alcohol if you're underage. All you have to do is ask someone and they'll give you some alcohol. Weed is abundant on campus. There are multiple people in all of my classes that smoke weed. I could find weed, alcohol, adderall, and cocaine with very little effort on campus.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Everyone gets financial aid. I've had problems with the financial aid being combined with state scholarships. Since a high GPA is so hard to obtain, but is required for my outside scholarship, I lost my outside scholarship freshmen year and am unable to reobtain it. Now I have to pay a lot of money out of my own pocket. If I hadn't received that scholarship freshmen year, then Lyon would have given me a bigger scholarship from the beginning and I would be paying less now. I wish Lyon had given me a bigger scholarship.

1 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food in the cafeteria is horrible. There aren't many options and the food is of low quality. I get the lowest meal plan with the most flex dollars because I'm required to have a meal plan since I live on campus. I went to the cafeteria three times last semester. I spent most of my money on eating at drive-thrus because it's faster and the food is better. I wish I didn't have to have a meal plan even though I live on campus. It's a waste of money for me.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places to eat off-campus… like Taco Bell, Mcdonald's, Burger King, etc. There aren't very many restaurants of quality or chain restaurants. There isn't a chili's, dixie cafe, nor Red Lobster. I wish there were more chain restaurants to compete with the chain fast-food places.

3 College Junior

Academics: I haven't learned much in my program. The school is prestigious, but it's possible to graduate knowing the same amount as when you started. You need to actually apply yourself if you want to actually learn. You can easily get a 3.15 while learning and retaining nothing, which is a shame. It all depends on the student. I feel like a degree is worth less because anyone can obtain one without learning anything.

3 College Junior

Majors: There isn't really a process for getting into any degree program. You just need to take the classes that you need for your degree and you're set.

3 College Junior

Majors: The biggest problem I have is that because the school is so small, the classes are only offered once a semester or even worse, once a year. It's hard to double major because many of the classes are scheduled at the same time which makes it impossible to take both classes. You can always do independent study, but the professors are often reluctant to have independent study classes.

3 College Junior

Weather: I think it's a bit extreme that it's possible to miss so many days of school for ice and snow. I wish there weren't so many days of class cancelled because of the weather.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are parties if you're part of greek life. There isn't a bar/club scene. Transportation isn't necessary because the only nightlife is on campus since it's a dry county. You can always throw a part in your dorm, but you'll probably get in trouble with Social Council. The administration isn't really pro-partying. Often there are no parties since the party scene at Lyon has died down in the past few years.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is a wide variety of people who attend Lyon. There is a GSA organization if that's what you want to be a part of. There are Frats and Sororities if those people are more your style. There's BCM and weekly chapel services if you're looking for a religious person. There are hipsters and every other type of person that you could possibly think of. There is no typical student of Lyon College. Everyone is different.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Almost no one attends the sporting events unless they are on another sports team at Lyon. Few people attend intramurals other than the Greeks who are required to attend in order to win the President's cup. The majority of intramurals participants are Greeks or other athletes. I wish more people attended the varsity sports events.

3 College Junior

Facilities: There could be more campus events that the students enjoy. Right now there are events every week for students, but not many attend. The student activities fee could be better spent towards a big event that all the students would like to attend like a concert instead of events like making wax models of hands. The athletic centers are nice. The student center is new and nice. The library would be better if it had more seating space. Chapel walk is a campus event/tradition that should stay the way it was and not be modified.
