Northern Vermont University - Lyndon Reviews

I absolutely love that class sizes are small, so students have excellent access to their professors and are able to learn in a close-knit community environment. Additionally, professors are almost always experts in their fields. There are plenty of things to do on campus, whether you're a part of student government, campus activities, MEISA (live music), the American Meteorological Society, the gaming club, NVUnity, the Critic, etc. There's also a skate park and a snowboard park! However, some professors really neglect their job and only stay because they're tenured, the administration makes some really poor decisions, and some of the students here are very questionable.

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 really liked the Lyndon campus at Northern Vermont University since it checked off all the things I want in a college. The campus and population were relatively small, the options available to me were great, and the staff felt very genuine. The one thing I'd improve was the campus housing since the quality was, at most, average.
