    College Freshman: 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!
