Lyndon’s Atmospheric Sciences Department is widely recognized as one of the finest undergraduate programs in the nation. Small class sizes allow faculty to provide personal attention to all students, yet we provide “big” school experiences. For instance, Lyndon students recently participated in the VORTEX 2 tornado research program. They are the only undergraduate students nationwide who do so.
Lyndon offers a diverse curriculum that integrates theory and hands-on learning. The preparation students receive in and out of the classroom ensures a high (90%) job placement in a variety of career paths.
Our broadcast curriculum is one of the best in the country. The College’s student-produced daily newscast, News 7, includes a forecast prepared and presented on camera by student meteorologists. To support our growing department, we have a new facility with state-of-the-art technology, including a Weather Center, which provides live weather observations from our campus weather station.
