Ninety-eight percent of Lyon graduates are employed or in grad school within six months of graduation, and Lyon has a medical school acceptance rate more than double the national average.We are also the only pet-friendly college in Arkansas, meaning our students are allowed to bring their best fur friends to live with them in our designated pet residence halls.
