"LSSU has a great reputation for placing students in graduate and professional schools. Many of my classmates from LSSU are now pursuing graduate and professional studies at some of the finest universities in Canada and the United States."

"The student-faculty interaction and the ability to conduct research at the undergraduate level really helped me to achieve success in a competitive graduate program. My professors at LSSU were always interested in helping us succeed."

Luke Fera of Sault Ste. Marie graduated from LSSU in 2006 with a degree in biology and is now working toward a master's degree in epidemiology at University of Western Ontario in London. He plans to continue his studies in the medical sciences.

Description: This program charts the birth and development of the weather system called "El Nino", so-called because it is born at the time Christmas is celebrated. The most severe El Nino on recored was first noticed in 1982: in Peru, the fishing waters were 15 degrees above normal, and the catch small; Australia had its worst drought in a century, the continent became a giant dustbowl, mini-tornadoes sucked away the topsoil, in February of 1983 a giant dust storm darkened Melbourne; drought hit India and heavy seas and high tides pounded the Western U.S.; hurricanes battered Polynesia. This program shows the ferocity of El Nino, relates it to the ocean waters, and traces the roots of man's study of waves, ocean currents, and the interaction of sea and sky.

"One of my favorite things about LSSU is its size. The classrooms, especially as you get to the upper levels, get smaller, so you not only have a chance to discuss your ideas in an honest, supportive manner, but you also get to know your professors and classmates. The upper level courses really allow you to focus on what you love, and the small class size allows you to have time to share and to discuss your ideas."
