Lyndon State College says
Welcome to Lyndon State College. I am pleased you chose to explore Lyndon as a possible college for your future. Selecting the college or university that is right for you is a significant decision in your life--one that will forge the path to your future and determine many lifelong directions as well as your network of friends. I encourage you to continue to explore Lyndon's web site but, most importantly, I urge you to visit the campus. A campus visit is critical to your choosing a college. It will give you a good sense of the college community and allow you to determine whether or not you would fit well in the community.
There are many things that I could tell you about Lyndon. For example, we have an extraordinary faculty well versed in their disciplines; most are practitioners in their respective fields. Our staff are dedicated to students and provide many extra support services. These things I know you will glean as you explore the web site, and you will certainly recognize these attributes if you come on campus. However, there is a particularly important characteristic of our College that I want to underscore, even though it may well become evident as you navigate your way through our web site: at Lyndon, everyone is dedicated to a single, shared goal--the success of each and every individual student. You will find that the minute you enroll at Lyndon, everyone here will be committed to YOU.
We know that students come to college with aspirations, talents and abilities, and each with his or her unique definition of success. Here at Lyndon we see our role as developing those talents and abilities, whatever they might be, so that all students can fulfill their potential and realize their own success.
At Lyndon we make sure that when you leave us, you leave with more than just a diploma, more than that all-important college degree. When you graduate from Lyndon, you will leave with:
The knowledge that you need to enter your chosen field
A liberal arts background that will serve you well in your career path and in your everyday life
The real-world experience you gained through internships and fieldwork. Such practical experience will be invaluable in securing your first position and many thereafter
The self-confidence you have gained, not only through campus life experiences, but also through the field work in which you will apply the theoretical knowledge to your chosen profession
A network of friends, faculty, staff, and fellow students who will help you throughout your entire life. This network will always be there to support you as you change positions or careers, as you enter new phases of your life.
So, as you explore the web site, I hope you will gain a sense of the spirit of Lyndon, the spirit of everyone committed to your success. I wish you well in your selection of a college and in your future academic endeavors. Please come and visit Lyndon and catch the spirit!
