Northern Vermont University - Lyndon Reviews
Rating 3.39 out of 5 271 reviews
Not much better than on campus, but saves money I suppose. The professors are mostly good, but a select few can be questionable educators (or not educators at all).
Going to Lyndon is like paying $40k a year to live in a Norwegian jail, but there’s probably more to do in prison. Since Covid, all my friends have left and no one can visit another’s dorm building. Hornet’s Nest is closed during prime dinner hours (5-8pm) and the dining hall is generally bad. Don’t come here if you have any lick of mental health issues, isolation is easy and there’s not much to motivate you to get out of bed in your dark little 1970’s room.
A miserable and strange little school thats as unfriendly as it is inept. Aesthetically the entire campus is an eyesore inside and out, and the dorms are just as bad. The classrooms are run down, fluorescently lit nightmares that when sat inside fill one with the uncanny feeling of being institutionalized. The student body for the most part consists of simpletons whose presence would be tolerable if not for the fact that they are beyond impersonable. It really was remarkable just how unpleasant most every interaction I had during my time here was. And as if all that wasn't enough I also had the pleasure of being swindle by the school, as they dropped a bill on me that was far beyond what I was told I was going to be paying after financial aid. Unsurprisingly when I sought out a solution for this problem the administration could give me no answers and soon after stopped responding entirely. In summation, do not come here no matter what, this school is a travesty.
It quickly feels like home. It's a small college that allows close connection with teachers and friends!
I only took one class online and It was easy. Teachers were very responsive and class bulletin boards were helpful.
NVU is a beautiful campus with a amazing views of the open field and mountain. With hand on experience and many opportunities, you are prepare for success.
I think that the professors at NVU Lyndon exceeded the expectations of what was expected of remote learning. I was just as engaged and still was able to learn
There is nothing I don’t like about NVU Lyndon. An exceptional program, and a warm and welcoming community
Honestly made a lot of great friends and had some really amazing professors. DO NOT go here if you're not used to small town life or aren't ready for that adventure. This is a college for those of us who like being outside and don't need entertainment. That being said, I was never bored.
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.
I have been on campus for a semester. I like it so far. It's small and not too crowded during the day. I get a challenge every day with the homework given to me. I learn something every day.
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.
The college campus is very small, so it is easy to find your way around. Along with a small campus, you get small classes, so your professors learn your names, and are often available to meet with you if you have questions or concerns. The amount of resources to help the students with any question, concern or issue is excellent.
Small campus makes it easy to go to class in the winter when the temperatures in the mornings can be below zero often. The campus being small means that you get to know everyone and you are able to make many friends because of that.
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.
I love the Exercise Science Program on campus and the facility in that department are outstanding and I feel that they are always wanting us to succeed in anything that we do. I also love the athletic program, especially basketball because not only has our program changed for the better over the years but the coaching staff and the players have made it a family.
The college is quiet and friendly. Very spacious. It is small. But there are not a lot of students. Nice wooded scenery. The professors are very helpful.
