What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
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.
Katheryn from Batesville, AR
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.
