Exposure to different experiences at Lake Superior State University helped me to learn and decide what I wanted to do with my life. There were many opportunities to help my learning experience, including day and weekend trips to various geological sites. It wasn’t all travel though; there was lots of hands-on experience that helped demonstrate what we learned in lectures.

Industrial Revolution, The
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.
