"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: Industrial Revolution, The
Movie ID: VT6263
Movie Number: 6263
Description: It started in England and reached its peak in America. The Industrial Revolution is a period of history that began in the early 18th century and carried through to the 20th century. Why it started in England is a fascinating question. It is one of many this informative video addresses. It is Central England, even more specifically, it is the textile industry which gives this period its start. Certain inventions were responsible for the changes seen by society. However, society itself, or consumerism in the marketplace, was just as responsible. It was an age when society went from traditional to modern, from agrarian to mechanized, from rural to urban, from simple to complex. In the words of Charles Dickens, "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times." Consumers had new and better clothing, teapots, porcelain, steam engines, steel, and even horseless carriages. At the same time, however, cities became more crowded. There were sanitation problems, cruel child labor was common, and many industrial centers experienced terrible pollution like never before. The Birmingham, England region became known as "The Black Country" due to its dirty air and water.
