"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."

Title: TEENAGE BRAIN: A WORLD OF THEIR OWN
Movie ID: VT5539
Movie Number: 5539
Description: New research has shown that during puberty, when the brain begins teeming with hormones, the pre-frontal cortex, the center of reasoning and impulse control is still a work in progress. For the first time, scientists can offer an explanation for what parents already know--adolescnece is a time of roiling emotions and poor judgement. As the brain matures, teenagers also fact special risks--from addictive drugs and alcohol that can hijack the brain--to the chaos of schizophrenia, which strikes most often during adolescnece.

"The opportunity at LSSU to do research is amazing. This past summer I motored through coves and islands with Prof. Garvon surveying water birds for the affects of pollution. I spent the other part of my summer on the shore of Lake Superior monitoring nests of the endangered Piping Plover."
