“The material covered in LSSU's engineering program provided me a solid foundation for graduate studies. The systematic approach and communication skills needed to tackle engineering projects were taught and then practiced over and over again. In particular I appreciate the many hours spent by the faculty to develop oral presentation skills in each student. As a graduate student now, these skills have proven to be highly beneficial and, to my surprise, obviously not taught to the same extent at many other universities.”

Title: GLACIER NATIONAL PARK
Movie ID: VT3268
Movie Number: 3268
Description: What is seen in Glacier National Park today had its origins about a million years ago--at the beginning of the Ice Age. More than 60 active glaciers can be found in the park today...some that still move up to 30 feet a year. The unsurpassed sights and sounds of this beautiful region are preserved for you on this unique Video Trip. You will travel along Going-to-the-Sun Highway and the scenic shore of Lake McDonald, and catch glimpses of the park's wildlife in the McDonald Creek Valley. You will continue along to the "Trail of the Cedars," and view a massive cedar and hemlock forest. See Avalanche Lake, where you can look back into the past and see how the tumbling glacier waters of the creek polished and carved the stone. Travel on to Logan Pass where the elevation is 6,664 feet and you can find summer snowfields. Then descend past the northern shore of St. Mary's Lake on your way to Many Glacier Lodge, the largest lodge in the park, and catch sight of some of the most incredible views in the park. You will spend time in Waterton National park, in Canada, and stop off at the Prince of Wales Hotel with its European styling. Your trip will also take you to the Northern Lights Saloon, a real backcountry lodge, on your way to Bowman and Kintla Lakes with excellent fishing and camping areas. Glacier offers a wide variety of recreational activities. Hiking, horseback riding, camping, bicycling, fishing, and camping are just a few of the adventures you can experience in glacier country! Glacier, with its carved mountains and valleys, glacier-fed lakes and streams, abundant wildlife, and peaceful, wet forests, is truly a place for man to cherish and enjoy!

"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."
