Lyndon State College

Lyndon State College

Lyndon State College or LSC came into existence as the Lyndon Normal School. Established in 1911 in a mansion built by Theodore Newton Vail in Lyndonville, Vermont, the institution was a public, non-profit, liberal arts college. The original mansion was brought down and replaced with a building dedicated to Vail. In addition to classrooms and offices, the Vial Hall has a bookstore, a student's centre, a television wing and a snack bar.

A wide range of bachelor's, master's and associate's degree programs are available to the students, who number at about 1300. Several Licensure programs in Education as well as certificate programs are offered. The programs include business administration, digital and graphic arts, education, exercise science and liberal studies.

Nicknamed as the Hornets, the Lyndon State College athletics teams are provisional members of the NCAA.
