"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: Earth Works: Ancient Newark, Ohio
Movie ID: VT6270
Movie Number: 6270
Description: Nearly two thousand years ago, what is now Newark, Ohio, was probably the greatest ritual center of a flourishing prehistoric civilization. Using detailed computer models, this film presents the monumental works of sacred architecture that were built across this ancient landscape by the people we call the Hopewell. Here it is possible to see the entire Newark complex reconstructed as it was measured by the Salisbury brothers in 1862. You will: see its vast, open setting in a man-made prairie, witness the moonrise over the central axis of the Octagon, see the Great Hopewell Road stretching to the southwest, visit a Native village along the riverbank, enter the Great Circle as it may have looked to those who built it, discover the possible meanings of this great earthen architecture. The Hopewell built many embankments, mounds, roadways, and enclosures throughout the Ohio Valley region; but only a few of them survive today. Our commitment is to reconstruct "digitally" what can not be reconstructed actually: helping to illuminate these Native American cultures on whose sacred ground much of middle America has been built, and helping them to take their rightful place as part of our shared North American heritage.

"Not only is LSSU close and convenient to my home in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, but the atmosphere is very welcoming. All of the staff and students seem to be really open, and the teacher-to-student ratio is very personal, unlike larger universities." [ more ]
