  • Not the greatest dorms, but definitely livable. New additions and renovations are made to the dorms every year. (i.e. my dorm building got granite bathrooms last summer)…

  • The dorms are dorms; there's not much to be said about them. They can be home if you make it home. They're cleaned regularly, have constant courtesy hours to insure…

    There are good and bad days when it comes to the quality of the food. There is always a wide variety of choices, though.

    The food is alright. If you don't like what is in the cafe, there is a bistro downstairs in the commons that has hamburgers, chicken, etc. Lyon also gives you a certain amount of money each semester that can be spent in a number of restaurants around town.

    The new Edwards Commons Student Center is very nice and the newest building on campus. The food is sub-par but sodexo is constantly taking comment cards to figure out how to improve.

    The cafeteria looked very fun and looked like it would be a cozy spot to hang out at.

    There is a cafeteria and the Bistro. The Cafeteria is okay and they always have options like pizza, burgers, and a salad bar. The Bistro has coffee and fast order options. If you don't like the on campus options, flex dollars are included as part of the meal plan and there are many fast food options in Batesville.

    It's great cafeteria food, and the staff are great. They'll chat with you and make your day if you're down. The dessert is award winning and top notch however.

    The food is tolerable, but Lyon offers Flex dollars that can be spent at local restaurants if you get sick of the cafeteria meals.

    There is no hazing and the Greek programs are very accepting of everyone. If you want to go Greek, you will probably be accepted.

    A fair amount of the student body is involved in fraternities or sports teams. There are 4 Fraternities: Kappa Sigma, Tau Kappa Epsilon, Zeta Beta Tau, and Alpha Psi Epsilon. 3 Sororities: Phi Mu, Alpha Xi Delta, Chi Omicron

    Lyon's Greek life is limited with only 3 fraternities and 3 sororities, but their size makes them each little families in their own that possess an incredible level of unity. Definitely recommend going Greek.

    The campus is home to four fraternities and three sororities that remain active in philanthropy, intramural activities, and student life. The Greek population is huge on Lyon campus and is easily the best way to get involved. Unlike big schools, Greek life is safe, free from hazing and the peer pressure felt at the state level.
