    Lyon instills a proud sense of history and rich tradition in every facet of campus life, from the Greek system to the Scottish Heritage program. Founded in 1872, Lyon College is the oldest independent college in Arkansas in the second oldest city in the state.

  • Beyond Boundaries

    Students can travel the world with the Nichols International Studies Program and strengthen their minds with rigorous classes. Study in Japan, Brazil, Spain, Chile, Northern Ireland and more. A Lyon education opens the door to many different career paths, research positions, and post-graduate programs.

  • Building Character

    Education is more than a degree. At Lyon, students can gain valuable experience by participating in collaborative research and are taught by leaders in their respective field, not graduate assistants.

  • Take the Journey

    Lyon College’s unique outdoor program offers students the chance to explore the environment around them and go beyond their comfort zones. Lyon’s beautiful 136-acre campus nestled in the Ozarks includes a bouldering wall, disc golf course, hiking and biking trail, sand volleyball court, zipline and ropes course, and Bryan Lake.

More Than Just A College

Lyon is a community, distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique Honor and Social Systems and award-winning professors.

Lyon launches new mobile app

The usage of smartphones is growing exponentially and research shows that the traditional age group (18-24) are using their smartphones multiple hours a day. Students become aware of events and activities going on around campus through emails, social media sites (e.g.-Facebook), and posters. If there is additional important information to share with students regarding academics, this is handled through emails and text messages. Students receive upwards of 100 emails a day. On average, only 10% of emails sent are opened by students.
