Lyon College is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church. It is based in Batesville, Arkansas, and offers a liberal arts curriculum. It is the oldest liberal arts institution in the state and has a “more selective” admissions process. All students sign a Roll of Honor pledge where they swear to uphold academic honesty as all tests are administered without supervision. Psychology, biology, and economics are the top fields of study.
Lyon College is easily the most tightly-knit community in the entire state of Arkansas. All of the students, regardless of their class, know each other and are just as willing as the teachers to help out. It is good at making you feel safe, loved, and prepared for the real world with its grueling curriculum and fantastic faculty.

Lyon College is definitely an academically challenging school, but worth the time and effort. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved on campus in various organizations or even academic groups. With such a small campus, it feels like a second home with a whole new family.
