3 College Freshman

Athletics: I have not yet participated in a sport, but when I do I'm sure it will be great.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have been introduced to the college experience and so far it is amazing. I can't wait to start learning about psychology and do what I want o excel in.

Health & Safety: Crime isn't ever an issue at Lyndon State College. Lyndon has a Facebook page for students graduation class year, the building they reside in, as well as other activities, which allows anyone who finds something such as jewelry a student will address it through the page and where it was found as well as a photo. The students are trusted and can be trusted. To give an example I had a visitor come up for the weekend and left their spare car key in the Auditorium, a few hours later after not realizing the spare key was missing, a photo was uploaded to a group I was involved with, attached to a description of a key a photo appeared. I recognized it and the student who posted it had given it to Public Safety who went through a process of showing proof it was my visitors key. They have a great system, and if anyone breaks trust it is known, and situations are handled differently. Public Saftey is great and is always patrolling the parking lots, and when they aren't they have live camera feeds they watch. Nothing goes unseen, including the buildings and doors into the dorms suites. Very safe, no crime and very little if any reported sexual assault. Respect.

Overall Experience: Small class sizes allow students to interact with their classmates and professors in an educational way that benefits all involved. One issue is you may not know all the students in your class because the classes are split and you are put into different sections for the same category during different hours of the day. If you want to get to know your classmates and figure out a new way you can get your study time in or get notes you may have missed, it's good to search around for who else may be taking that class as well, even if they don't attend it with you and attend a different time or with a different professor. This can help students for the future gathering of information, and is also part of a process I currently go through to make sure I understand the material. To continue to ensure that I am meeting the requirements of the courses I also take the time to speak with the professors, mainly in person, and rarely by email, this gives both student and teacher an understanding of one another including the course material and my understanding.

Overall Experience: Lyndon State College is well known for their Meteorology Alumni Meteorologist Jim Cantore of The Weather Channel as well as other successful graduate students. They provide a day-to-day updated Facebook page allowing prospective students a chance to see what it is like to attend, graduate and look for jobs after graduation. There, job listings and internships can be found, along with other connections. Another place to find links is on LinkedIn. The social site allows Alumni and current students and professors a new way to connect. Sharing professions on LinkedIn could be your next job opportunity. While in school, Alumni and currently working-in-the-field students will come to the school and do presentations Inviting Alumni helps conjure up the conversation on any new change in the Department of Meteorology and other areas within the field that could help guide us further to success. Lyndon is very successful in making sure students connect with one another, as hands-on projects are always occurring.

Campus Housing: I am freshmen currently residing in the Rita L. Bole building, which offers a single living for both gender upper-class students with a sustained grade average. However, I have been allowed because of medical reasonings to stay in the single living. The other options are Wheelock, also the same Rita. However, you have roommates ( typically two in a room of five dorms of a five-floor building) Pretty clean for the most part, with a slight issue of heating for showers. Whitelaw and Crevecoeur are two buildings further away from the campus for the underclassmen and some upper class to be an example to younger aged students. Other than Rita L Bole and Wheelock, the other dorms, Whitelaw, Crevecoeur, Arnold and Bayley, Poland and Rogers are all housing underclassmen. Rita is the only building where you can suite with either gender and is the only building with a kitchen, oven and stove. All buildings have washers, dryers, showers, sinks. However, Rita provides a door and a lock, rather than a shower curtain. The overall atmosphere is comfortable. However, the buildings can be loud simply opening a door and echos down all the halls. Friendly, typically clean. Students can bring mini-fridges, even though all suits are provided a large size fridge.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I have yet to parttake in athletic events at the college, however the university starts the first two days of classes with the Lyndon State Special Olympics, a chance for students to get to know their team as well as the individuals to understand their strengths and weaknesses. This allows students some time before classes begin to get to know other students around campus, giving an option to join sports and other clubs. After the event there is a school-wide gathering with all the school clubs and sports, as well as companies who sponcer and or work with Lyndon State College to gather more interest and you can sign up for any club or activity. You don't have to sign up, but it does show how much Lyndon and their students care about what they enjoy, thus furthering the options you can do. Overall the athletic groups and teams Lyndon has ranging from Lacross to Basketball and a gym to work out in, all is great!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: School-wide-major-activities-day is Lyndon State College's introduction for all students and faculty to participate and engaging in a day that revolves around the students major. The school's remote location gives way to a beautiful mountainous scenery that leaves its visitors with a small town and not much to do. Having a small population and being surrounded by the wilderness is great for those in my field of Meteorology. The environment is excellent for attending and planning the Major Activities Day out in the open. The school is sent equipment for both students and professors to use, in this case, we are provided Weather Ballons to begin the understanding process as Freshmen undergraduates who are looking to pursue a career in the field of Meteorology. By doing this, the college shows they care for the education process by starting us out as soon as possible. Though my courses aren't all Meteorology based, there are still other courses required to take such as English, Math, and extracurricular classes that all seem to relate and have ties with one another and makes it easy not to get lost when transitioning to other courses, for example, an English course was given to help and encourage me in my major how to write a resume within my job field. This is unique within a university! Lyndon State Meteorology courses also uniquely offer other course offerings to keep your career variety open such as when and if a student is looking into possibilities for future job listings in Broadcast Meteorology, courses in Media and Technology helps give me an extra boost when applying myself in meteorology as taking these other course won't steer my focus away from my original career, but rather heighten my marketability. Lyndon State College has a great set up, and I wouldn't have it any other way. The workload isn't always easy, and I may have seen up and down moments my first semester as freshmen but I wouldn't go back and change it. Great experience overall!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public safety is here to make sure there are no problems on campus and keep every student safe

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class size is small so you can ask questions when you need it. Also many different types of classes to take and the professeurs know their stuff and can help for a job in your major for the future

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Internships are very common here and are very good because of some teachers who can really help you get into a certain internship you hope to do for the future when graduation comes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing is fine and clean!!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Great teams and coaches to help people who want to do sports for the red of their lives to be a good athlete

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school has professeurs who are there to help you with what you are planning on doing for the rest of your life after you graduate college. They have experience in the major I chose and can help me get good internships and a place to work after I graduate!!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the small town environment and knowing who everyone is!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone is really nice but it is very easy and boring. There is not much to do on or around campus. The dining hall is not very good.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is remote and you need a car for everything. I grew up overseas in a military family who are still overseas so it's hard to get from the airport to campus. I wish the school supplied a shuttle for a cheaper rate for students. I also wish there was a shuttle for making weekend runs for groceries, toiletries, etc. I love that you do get to know most students on campus. I love the fact that even though it's a small school, it still offers many programs and sports opportunities as larger schools.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really like Lyndon State College. After spending about a month there, first semester, I thought I wanted to transfer. I applied to some schools and actually got accepted to Champlain College. I did however decide to stay at Lyndon because I discovered I really loved it. I love the school, professors, and my friends. For any Film Majors out there, check out Lyndon. Sure, we are no UCLA, but our program is still a baby and it is growing faster than I thought. I plan on spending my entire college career at Lyndon, and I am happy to be a hornet and am glad I decided to stay at Lyndon.

As for the people in general, there is a mix of people, but I can safely say there are many artsy people on campus (myself included), and not the in-your-face pretentious type, but just students who are just simply, artistic (if that makes ANY sense).

If you are interested in a small school where you can stand out and get noticed by people, trust me, LSC is the way to go.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The best places in town are the Pub Outback and the Chinese Buffet. The Miss Lyndonville Diner has slowly gotten worse, and most other places close early. There are three pizza places in town, and they all cost about the same...too much! Delivery is almost non-existant unless you order from Hoagies (their pizza stinks) or Pizza Man ($16.60 for a large pizza)

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Honestly, because of the area, it's hard to find landlords who immediately respect you. Most kids are rude and don't pay on time. Unless you've got an in with somebody, it's pretty pricey and hard to find a clean, nice apartment.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: Mostly just drugged up grunge boys who want to hook up. Smaller parties are better, and the bar scene is fun, but terrifying if you're a woman who goes alone!

1 College Junior

Administration: George hacking is the worst part about Public Safety. He does not care about being polite, and has no couth whatsoever. And the students who participate in Public Safety often take 10-15 minute to show up.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Most days, its a 50/50 chance that the food will be good, but because I now work there, I have discovered ways around bad food! It really depends on the chef

4 College Junior

Scholarships: As someone who comes from a poor family, money has always been an issue. However, LSC was very understanding, and despite a few snags along the way, I have always received fair aid from them.
