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.

Lyon College has great views, academics are pretty decent, the student life is good and has pretty good outdoor activities around campus. the community around the campus is very diverse and very helpful.
This small liberal arts school is rigorous, but will prepare you to go far in life. This is hands down the best private school in Arkansas. Campus is safe and well maintained, but could use a few updates. There has been a lot of positive change with the new college president.
