4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Even though it is a pretty small town with roughly 10,000 people, there are plenty of things to do around town. You can eat out, go to the movies, go bowling, or even take a boat out into the river.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: It's alright but the social atmosphere ferments after a semester.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: One of Lyon College's top priorities is student safety. We have campus safety patrolling the campus at all hours and I feel safe at all times of the day and night.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town has a good relationship with the school as it brings in a lot of new money and labor for the local businesses. There's plenty of restaurants. There's not that much for shopping outside of a few chain stores and a few local stores. Most people seem to just use the internet for shopping. There's no sports besides the school's team and high school football.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It reminds me a lot like high school, people are usually the same as they are in high school, only there's alcohol and drugs and all the other types of activities that people warn others about. The people can be nice but they can also be really harsh. It's nothing you wouldn't expect.
