The mission of Lyon College is "to foster critical, creative thought and ethical, spiritual growth that will prepare students for fulfilling personal and professional lives committed to lifelong learning and service." We start that preparation in our first-year advising program!
Every new student at Lyon is assigned a professional adviser committed to providing dedicated support as you establish your individual path. We help you explore your interests, imagine your future, and plan your learning journey.
The decision-making process during the first year is intensive. Your adviser works in partnership with you throughout the first year. You will receive tailored, proactive attention and personal support to ensure that your college experience starts strong! We help you go beyond knowing what you need to do to understanding why the choices you make are right for you. We work with you, for you.
