| 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.

| I transferred from LSC after the first semester because of how horrible it was. Socially, if you don't have a "clique" within the first few weeks, you're probably in trouble. I guess some people would say that Lyndon's size is what draws them to the campus, but to me it was just too small, and not nearly as exciting as I hoped it would be; not once in my four months there did I get a real "college campus" vibe. Academically this is probably the easiest school to get into, and because you don't even need your SAT scores to be accepted, many people come here on a "last resort" type basis - this is a fantastic thing to find out after working hard through high school to try to get into a good college and finding out people with a 1.45 GPA can get in with no problems. If you don't ski or snowboard, this place is hell in the winter. Also, Lyndonville, where the college is located, is a sleepy little town, probably not a good place if you (like me) enjoy big, exciting environments with lots going on. I guess you could consider this an "advice" comment, because I strongly advise you not to waste your money or time at this institution. |
