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!
Review Lyndon State College
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!
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.
