What Students Are Saying
3.73 Average Rating
Great small college in upstate Vermont. Very easy to make friends and to get to know your teachers. Amazing views and amazing programs, especially in Atmospheric Science and Electronic Journalism Arts!
Robert from Providence, RI
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.
M from Danville, VT
Lyndon State College has a warm community that welcomes everyone with open arms. The professors put in a real effort to get to know you even outside of classes. The students are hard working and love the school with all their hearts knowing that it is their home.
Carole from Thetford Center, VT
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.
lyndon state college has to be one of the most affordable colleges across the united states. it also has a great diverse student body and has people coming in from all over. even though its a small college, lyndon is one of the best choices for those who want to really focus on their studies, which is why i give it a 4/5.
