Most Helpful Review for Northern Vermont University

  • Review by: Shera from Colebrook, NH

All of my teachers are well-qualified for their positions and, while I had to get used to their teaching methods, I've learned a lot. Classes are more intense than high school, with much more information and higher expectations, but the competency of the teachers and their willingness to meet with students to talk things out make this a good learning environment. The pace and teaching methods may be hard on some, but students should do well if they don't procrastinate and put in good effort.

    I came to Lyndon State College with a pessimistic attitude, not wanting to be here, I knew that I was going to be miserable. I am happy to say that I was wrong. This college changed my mind for me, from the beautiful, open campus on top of a mountain; to the happy and easily approachable professors in the classrooms.

    Lyndon State College has small classrooms which makes it easier to approach teachers and ask questions if you don't understand the material. It also has a great science lab and I get to go outside during labs and experience the environment during class!

    The school itself is very isolated and small. However, the programs and the sense of family make up for that. They are very hardworking and want you to succeed in life.

    It's a great school, it can get boring at times but looking out your window to the mountains everyday always makes it better. The professors are awesome and really do care about you. Winters suck because they last forever but overall I think it's a great place to be.

    from the amount of time i have spent at lyndon state without even being accepted, i have enjoyed it and fine the staff to be very welcoming and knowledgeable. come from the area and living in a big city has surely made me appreciate a smaller college which sits down one on one and helps out each individual.
