THOMAS HARDY: A CONCISE BIOGRAPHY
An English novelist and poet, Hardy explored the dynamics of human
relationships. Sexual attraction between men and women was a theme common to
several of his works. He depicted the concept of fate as a villain, using
characters who fought losing battles against this impersonal force. Human
downfall was portrayed in his writing as the result of an unwilling conflict
with a hostile, meaningless universe.
Robotics and Computer Science
"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
