Who at Lyndon works to make this happen?
Residence Hall Directors and student Resident Assistants work hard to create and maintain a healthy and positive living environment for our students.
The Director of Student Life, the Director of First-Year Experience, the academic support team, the admissions team, and faculty and staff, provide students a close-knit community of people who work together to ensure that every student’s college experience is successful and meaningful.
