Alum Success

Nicole Anderson

Exposure to different experiences at Lake Superior State University helped me to learn and decide what I wanted to do with my life. There were many opportunities to help my learning experience, including day and weekend trips to various geological sites. It wasn’t all travel though; there was lots of hands-on experience that helped demonstrate what we learned in lectures.

Admissions

Student Employment

LSSU hires students for many jobs on campus. There are opportunities for employment for all students, whether or not you are eligible for Work-Study. For more information, visit the LSSU Human Resources website.

Federal College Work-Study provides jobs for undergraduates with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay educational expenses. Eligibility is based on the results of the FAFSA and you will be informed of your award along with any other types of aid on your award notification.

The average Work-Study award is $1,500 per academic year or $750 per semester. A student should work approximately 8 hours per week to earn this amount over the two-semester academic year.

Your Work-Study pay rate will be at least the current federal minimum wage, but may be higher, depending on the type of work you do and the skills required. If you are an undergraduate, you will be paid by the hour. Students are paid every other Friday.

LSSU's dedicated three-story fire lab made all the difference to Brian Applegate.

"Our certification training classes offered real situations," Brian says. Students practice victim search techniques while controlling and extinguishing fires. Applegate says his favorite exercise was the live fire flashover simulation. "We saw how fires evolved as they burned," he says. "It’s as close as you can get to the real thing."
