"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.

Title: VIENNA: END OF AN EMPIRE THE WALTZ CITY
Movie ID: VT3483
Movie Number: 3483
Description: Vienna waltzed to the music of the Strausses as the Hapsburg Empire dwindled away in the 19th Century. The most distinguished serious composers living in Vienna during the heyday of the Strausses were two Germans, Johannes Brahms and Richard Wagner, who both claimed Beethoven as a father--the one relating to the Classical, and other the Romantic strain in Beethoven's work. (The resulting controversy has produced some of musicology's most quotable quotes, notably Hanslick's "The only thing which prevents me from declaring the Prelude to Di Meistersinger to be the world's most unpleasant overture is the even more horrible Prelude to Tristan und Isolde.") The program continues through the work of Anton Bruckner, and contains a priceless segment of Brahms speaking and playing a few chords on the piano to inaugrate Mr. Edison's new phonograph machine.

"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."
