| Some of the faculty are good, most don't give a rat's ass.if you need extra help or have a question good luck finding them in their "office hours" . Student support services is good but most of the administration is either ignorant or cranky. --or both. They have WAY too many administrators and spend $$ on stupid crap like new signs but the dorms are AWFUL. Very prison like--dark, old, dingy, broken stuff never gets fixed. The fall and spring you will sweat and in the winter you freeze. The president pretends to be interested but never attends anything involving students. There is nothing to do unless you like to ski. The town is small..not much activity. Save your money, go to a community college or a tech school. I am making half of what my peers are-- |

| I strictly advise anyone who is serious about their future in higher education to NOT attend Lyndon State College. The quality of education is haphazardly sub-poor and I feel as if I have been cheated out of my money by the school. Many classes that I have taken over the two brutal years that I attended school here (regardless of relation to my major) were both uninteresting and un-beneficial to my future. The residential life staff made me feel like an outsider to my own learning environment. The quality of dorm buildings and of basically all architecture at the school is not up to date and it would seem that nothing ever gets fixed. The food in the dining hall is atrocious and I have developed an eating disorder as a result of trying to avoid the sloppy messes that were served to me on a daily basis. |
Thinking about work study? Don't. Even if you are allotted a work study job, you won't get one.
Think that it is campus security's job to keep people safe? Absolutely not. They make it 110% their place to make you feel uncomfortable in your own environment. They will write you up for any reason they can, regardless of how you act.
I have seen many beautiful people go to waste at this school. People with bright futures will become nobody's and alcoholics if they attend this school. This college has completely destroyed my emotional stability and while staying there, even though people know me as an incredibly happy individual, I thought about committing suicide on a couple of occasions. I am now incredibly depressed, and have wasted 2 years of my life as well as thousands of dollars at this 'College,' if you can call it that. I wouldn't recommend anyone to attend this school and I pray that it be shut down soon enough.

| The meteorology (now Atmospheric Sciences) program here is excellent. LSC's graduates here and in the Television Studies (now EJA) go on to do great things. It's a beautiful campus with an incredible view of the surrounding area. The faculty are very knowledgeable and approachable, and I can honestly consider a few to even be friends. HOWEVER, the administration here SUCKS. They clearly do not know the first thing about running a college, and LSC is severely in debt, to the point where cutting faculty and programs is being considered. Also, maintenance, particularly in the Stonehenge and Wheelock dorms, is terrible. Living in Stonehenge, when I came in (in August), one of my room's internet jacks was broken, and wasn't fixed until December. The Wheelock rooms are incredibly reminiscent of a typical prison cell. The Rita Bole rooms and suites are pretty nice, though. |
Also, some of the programs other than Atmos. Sci., TV studies, and Exercise Science are fairly shitty. If you're considering coming to LSC for anything besides one of those three, you're probably better off somewhere else.
As far as the surrounding area goes, it's a very beautiful area, but there isn't a lot to do if you don't enjoy the outdoors. Frankly, I have absolutely no idea how anyone who doesn't enjoy outdoor activities survives here. Nearby Burke Mtn has good skiing and is very underrated. Kingdom Trails is good for mtn biking and XC skiing. If you are someone who wants to go to school in a place where there are a lot of clubs, bars, and general nightlife, you're looking in the wrong place. There's one really really shitty "club" in town, not within easy walking distance of the college and filled with fat chicks, that I'm pretty sure I got AIDS from just walking into the one time I actually went there.
Sports at Lyndon: We recently became NCAA D3. I'm a member of the Cross Country team, and we're fairly successful. We've won our conference championship for the past 3 years, and have done reasonably well at ECAC and Regionals. I don't really follow our other sports much (XC is the most successful), but I know our soccer and basketball usually do fairly well. I think tennis does okay too. Overall, I'm giving LSC a neutral rating. There are some great things about this place, and there are some things that aren't so good, and there are some things that are absolutely god-awful. I'm ending my sophomore year here right now, and plan on staying for two more. Given the chance to make my college choice over again, I still think I would come here. The people here are, as a general rule, fucking awesome, and the program I'm in is high quality. However, I do find myself bored sometimes. You definitely have to know how to make your own fun in order to survive here. You can't depend on campus activities or the surrounding town like you can at bigger schools.
