TALKING TO STRANGERS
The ways animals communicate to each other: most use ripples in the air, but
the sea is also full of sound of animals communicating. The loudest of all
sounds in nature is made by blue whales, who can sing to each other on
opposite sides of the ocean. Competing male frogs in Panama make so much
noise they have a special sysem to avoid jamming each ohters' signals. A
male toadfish hums so loud to attract his mate, that residents of a
houseboat near one tried to sue the local electricity board for the buzz
before discovering its origin.
TRIAL OF LIFE
"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful."
