Our Community: Lyndon Institute prides itself on being a positive presence and contributing member of the community. Our students participate in a number of community service projects. Several on-campus amenities are available to the public: the track (for fitness walking and running), the Simpson Nature Trail (hikes and picnics), the athletic fields (for youth programs), and other facilities host performances and continuing education programs.
