Peter Pietrangelo of Sault Ste. Marie presented a research paper at the 2010 John Burroughs Nature Writing Conference and Seminar held during the summer at the State University of New York in Oneonta. The conference, "Old Lessons for a New Millennium: Nature Writing and Environmentalism in the 21st Century," focused on the work of writers who contributed to the early conservation movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and the work of contemporary writers who are exerting an influence on the development of early 21st century environmentalism.

The mission of the Fine Arts Studies program at Lake Superior State University is to prepare students for both post-baccalaureate careers and professional schools or graduate level study. This is a multidisciplinary program. Through a personalized course of study, the program provides students with a variety of course work and opportunities that require the integration of various mediums in the production and creation of original work. The program seeks to facilitate the students' potential as artists in diverse areas of study, encourage critical reading, and thinking skills through critique and discussion. In addition, it seeks to foster the development of their individual skills and aesthetic natures.

Reaching Out

Susie Drockton Sault Ste. Marie, MI

I love LSSU Dance Company. Being part of the Dance Company gave me an opportunity to make new friends and be involved in campus and community activities. We participate in such a wide variety of events that go way beyond dancing. I personally enjoy programs that allow us to introduce dance to young children. The smiles, hugs, and high-fives are priceless. There is something very special about being part of a campus organization that is really focused on giving back to the community while doing what we love.
