The Lyon college staff have been uniquely available, personal, and effective since I began communications with them months ago. The campus is beautiful, and I have yet to meet an unfriendly face.
I will be attending in the fall of 2020. The staff and instructors have been so helpful in helping get everthing set up for me. They have offered several Virtual tours. And virtal meetings with professors have been very helpful. They have in close contact. I am very glad I chose this school.
