Welcome to Lyndon’s 2012-13 Academic Year

August 29, 2012

I would like to welcome back our returning students and say hello to a wonderful group of new students.  As a newcomer myself, I had the pleasure of participating alongside incoming students at orientation earlier this month, and I was continually reminded of what attracted me to Lyndon in the first place—this great community.  Relationships matter here, an ethic of care matters here, and people matter here.  I look forward to growing these relationships.


As we embark on Lyndon’s second century, we are poised to become the best college in the Vermont State College system and a premiere college in New England.  Our spectacular location, the world-class outdoor recreation at our doorstep, some of the best academic and professional programs in the nation, and an amazing faculty and staff are just some of the College’s many strengths.  We will all work together to make your experience an excellent one.  Students come first at Lyndon, and it is our mission to prepare each and every student for personal and professional success.


This is an exciting time for Lyndon State College, and I am honored to begin the academic year in my new role as the College’s 15th President.  I hope you’ll share in this excitement as we move forward together, and join me in instilling a sense of pride in LSC as we celebrate the green and gold!


Best wishes to all for a terrific fall semester.

Warm regards,
Joe Bertolino
