Communications and SPC Administrator, Drinking Source Water Protection Division of the Sault Ste. Marie Region Conservation Authority (Ontario)

"Most natural science classes at LSSU offer students as much hands-on experience (lab hours) as lecture hours, which ensures that the university experience prepares us for the real world careers, whether you work at a desk or out in the field, or both. There are endless advantages and opportunities available to LSSU students due to its location on an international border.

I found my career path on campus when my advisor posted a job for the Bi-national Public Advisory Council (BPAC), a group dedicated to and overseeing the clean-up the St. Mary's River. I was able to gain experience and network on both sides of the border, ultimately finding full-time employment before I graduated with my biology degree."

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.

 

 

Political Science ...

Political Science

"The study of political science/law is basically the path of least resistance for me. It is a subject that has always interested me, and one that I have proved to be naturally insightful in. Studying political science isn’t just the study of how governments function or how it is composed, but the study of why it exists and to what ends. In short, it is the study of what makes everything else possible."
