Lyon  College Campus Center

Batesville, AR













Lyon College is a small liberal arts college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church. It offers education in a personalized setting with intimate faculty-student relationships. The new building replaced the original Commons, which was destroyed by a fire in 2010. It almost doubled the old facility in size and provided the college with greater flexibility for their future growth plans.

The new expanded program incorporated a new dining hall and food service facilities, meeting rooms, student life services, counseling center, health center, performance space and after hours social gathering spaces, including a coffee bar. The building was organized to be the campus center and to promote a culture of cohesion within the college community.
