"An opportunity like this never would have come available to me if I had not taken the program in the Sault College/LSSU International Division," Hornblower said. "My employer was very impressed with the fact that I not only had a degree in computer networking, but the hands-on knowledge, as well. This is the main reason that I was hired."

Title: WALT WHITMAN
Movie ID: VT2354
Movie Number: 2354
Description: Profiling the Good Gray Poet.; Answering Ralph Waldo Emerson's call for a distinctly American poetry, Whitman (1819-1892) sought to break away form European conventions. His earthy language, innovative meters and prophetic images were used to convey broad themes of sexuality, war and urban life, in ways that sometimes shocked contemporaries. The hour surveys "Leaves of Grass," which Whitaman wrote and rewrote over 40 years, and Civil War elegies that reflect his experiences as a battlefield nurse. Poets Allen Ginsberg and Galway Kinnell acknowledge their debt to Whitman; Louis Turenne portrays the poet in old age.

"LSSU's size is perfect. I see familiar faces every day. There is a security and comfort in that. The professors are wonderful, and there is a lot of interaction in the smaller classes. The level of attention students get is the same as at a small private college, but at a great price." [ more ]
