Northern Vermont University - Lyndon Campus Reviews
What I loved about Lyndon State College was that the student to professor ratio was 15-20:1. The professors are willing to work one-on-one and help you succeed. There is many resources available such as tutors, and the academic support center which helps students prioritize, schedule classes, and learn how to effectively study. The academics are optimal and require professionalism and the programs expect high quality, to their best effort out of the students. The community is very open and willing to help anybody. Lyndon gives the opportunity for students to be an athlete while having their main focus on school then sports after. There is many activities to do on campus from student life scheduling opportunities. Activities off campus also includes skiing, hiking, etc. Lyndon provides the optimal opportunity for school and fun, all while receivin the college experience.
I have been attending this college since 2018 flagship program with Northern Essex Community College. It was a rough start because it is Northern Essex Community College's first time partnering up with a out of state college. So far I enjoy my professors and classes that I am taking. The professors and staff are so welcoming to they're students. They are very helpful when a student needs assistance too. I have been to the campus and I tell you it is breathtaking. The school is surrounded by large hills and a lot of plant life. There are a lot of activities to do so you never get bored on campus.
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!
