Lyon college was my home for four wonderful years. In that time, the college has expanded to meet the expectations of the students. My biggest concern with Lyon is their slashing of academic programs, especially their computer science major. I know they are losing students over deleting this major. The people and the atmosphere are what make Lyon an enjoyable place to be.
Lyon College, located in beautiful, historic Batesville, Arkansas, is a wonderful place to further your higher education! Although I have not personnally attended school at Lyon, I have had two other family members that have graduated and went on to become a Medical Doctor and a Graphic artist and both talk about their wonderful experiences they had at Lyon! Lyon College-Beautiful. Peaceful. And a wonderful place to begin a wonderful adventure into your future! =))
