My experience at Lyon College has been great. All of the teachers care about their students and try to insure their success. The community of my school is close as well, people know each other. It's different from most schools because it is small, and the professors know your name. I would choose Lyon again in a heartbeat.

Everyone at Lyon is really open-minded and accepting of many different races/ethnicities/religions/etc.

I love Lyon College; although, there are some policies that I don't agree with, and some teachers that need to work on their teaching skills as much as I need to work on my studying skills, which is not convenient especially since I'm a freshman and am already struggling to get good grades. The absentee policy is not the best as if you miss a certain amount of class periods, no matter you're grade, you are failed out of the class. Though I'm struggling in more ways than one, the college experience is good overall; although, since I'm not a resident of Lyon campus, it's harder for me to get extra help or be involved in extra activities that may or may not help my grades.
