LSSU Business, Economics, and Legal Studies Distinguished Alumni '07
Former LSSU Board Trustee
Explores the concept of good government--effective management at all
levels--and bad government--a distant authority imposing its will through
giant, inefficient, and wasteful bureaucracies. Discusses the role of
government in the economy, in addition to its growing regulatory posers in
such areas as agriculture, transportation, energy, and education.
Robotics and Computer Science
"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
