"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."

Movie Number: 2071
Description: Some 3000 years ago, according to Homer's "Iliad," the "most beautiful woman in the world" was kidnapped, setting off a 10-year war that would end only when a hollow wooden horse filled with Greed soldiers was hauled inside the gates of the city on Troy. Fact or fiction? That's the subject of this compelling six-part probe. Wearing the hats of historian, archaeologist, detective and storyteller, British journalist Michael Wood journeys to supposed Trojan War sites in Greece and Turkey and delves into the complex literary and historical records in an effort to separate the myths from the facts. In part 1, Wood recounts the story of one of the first "who searched before," an enigmatic German named Heinrich Schliemann (1822-90). Known to many as " the father of archaeology," Schliemann was the first to unearth what were believed to be ruins or Troy, in the 1870's. later

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."
