"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."

"Personal relationships with the professors - and not just one professor, all professors. Also, the atmosphere at LSSU is very friendly and offers rewarding opportunities to be involved in campus life.” - Nicole Hawdon ‘04

 

Student Research...

Linden, Michigan

Jon assessed algae for potential biodiesel production. Two species were examined, Pediastrum sp. which has never been assessed for the amount of oil it could produce and Chlamydomonas sp., which has a known content of oil for biodiesel. The study found that Pediastrum sp. produced about 5% oil per dry mass compared to 24%. for Chlamydomonas sp. Hayes concludes that Pediastrum sp. would not be efficient for biodiesel production.
