  • Aug-26-2011 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    When I toured this college, I immediately got a homey feel. The campus was beautiful. Even though the cafeteria and other buildings had been burned down, the plans for new buildings were magnificent. The weather was pleasant. The library had shelves of books and if the library didn't have a book you needed they would find a library that did and get it for you.

    I greatly enjoy attending Lyon college. The campus is beautiful, offers a variety of opportunities to socialize with other students, and provides an abundance educational benefits. The people are very helpful and it is extremely easy to make friends that you can depend on. I feel comfortable on the campus. I know that if I accidentally leave something valuable somewhere it will either still be there when I go back or it is turned in somewhere safe.

    I absolutely love Lyon College. The students that attend are fun and friendly sharing your desire to learn. There is always something to do even if that something is studying. Even with the cafeteria burning down and having new eating arrangements, the college manages to make it a fun and easy place to live.
