Lyndon at Work

With over 500 alums employed in the public and private sector in every aspect of the recreation industry, Lyndon grads provide a powerful network for those who wish to follow in some interesting footsteps.

Established over 40 years ago by Vermont State Parks Director Ed Koenneman and Sno-Engineering President Jim Branch, Lyndon State was in a perfect position to provide a training ground for summer park leaders and winter ski area employees. The program evolved to prepare recreation professionals for community, therapeutic, natural resource, and adventure-based recreation positions.

It’s said that one may change careers five or more times in a lifespan. We believe that the combination of liberal arts and core/concentration theory and practice provide transferable skill sets for many careers. We treasure our alums as good citizens and partners in advocating quality of life through positive leisure and recreation experiences.
