Winter Checklist

LSSU uses a communications service – Nixle – that allows the university to send important public safety messages to students, employees, family members, as a text message, through their cell phones.

This service will only be used to send important messages regarding health and public safety, including messages that inform students about campus closings due to weather. General university announcements such as those regarding special events, fee statements, scheduling and other regular university business will be broadcast and posted on My.LSSU.

The Nixle service is available free of charge (standard text messaging rates apply) and anyone may sign up for it, so parents and community members may be interested, too. All you need to do is sign up with the service to receive messages, and your cell phone must have text messaging capabilities. You may sign off the service at any time.

Hands-on Training...

Brian Applegate
Fire Science

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."
