"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.

LSSU Elders is an association of Lifelong Learners. The Association is dedicated to provide continuous learning and social opportunities tailored to the interest of older adults. It provides personal growth, camaraderie and a sense of community. A wide variety of classes are offered each quarter. Typical schedules might consist of current events, historical subjects, religious, estate planning, geology, birding, horticulture, quilting, classical music, poetry, literature and book discussions, travelogues, trips and visits to nearby sites.

The LSSU Elders was started in 1994 with a mission to provide continuous educational opportunities and activities for people age 50 and older residing in this area. It is membership driven, and classes and activities are offered each year as a result of membership input. The Elder hostel Institute Network (EIN) is a voluntary association of Lifelong Learning Institutes across North America. For more information call 906-635-2802.

Here at LSSU the Elders have a lot to offer the younger students as well as the faculty.
