Not only did the education I received prepare me immensely for the work world, I made friendships and connections that are sure to last me a lifetime. LSSU is the perfect collegiate experience: exceptional educators, a welcoming community and the beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula."

Shane Carley

Shane Carley used ground-penetrating radar to locate lost gravesites in one of Sault Ste. Marie's oldest cemeteries. Most of the cemetery's records were lost in a 1970s city hall fire. City government needed to know where graves were for reasons of closure for relatives and ongoing expansion plans. Carley presented his results to a grateful city commission, and went on to publish his techniques and results as a senior thesis project. A poster of his work took first place in the nation for undergraduates at the American Institute of Professional Geologist meeting in San Diego. The award netted him $750. Carley went on to present at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco.

"I'm now working with a large group of respected scientists on the TAIGER project. Earlier in the summer it involved deploying and retrieving ocean-bottom instruments for what is called passive seismology, which deduces movement between two seismic plates in the Pacific. My analysis at the University of New York at Binghamton will use passive earthquake data to model what's happening off the coast of Taiwan in three dimensions."

Fire Science

"I love the fast pace environment, the people in the profession, and the adrenaline rush of running into a burning building or saving someone’s life," she says.

Rondeau chose Lake Superior State University because it offers the first accredited four-year fire science degree in the United States. She also jumped at the challenge of LSSU's Honors program, which requires her to complete 21 Honors credits, including 10 credits for an Honors seminar/thesis project.
