Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Project Description:


The team worked in a close relationship with Lake Superior State University’s newly created Prototype Development Center in an effort to bring the ideas and concepts of area businesses and entrepreneurs to reality. Many of the projects within the PDC are either recently patented or under patent pending status. The team strove to accurately represent the visions of their customers and produce prototypes that were of high quality, technically sound, and practical in terms of potential future production. Each project had its own requirements, challenges and timelines that had to be met to satisfy the customer.

Student Research...

Cheboygan, Michigan

Lydia used data from the Michigan Frog and Toad Survey to compare populations and species within wetland types along one route in Emmet County over a five-year time span. The survey used volunteers to help measure the populations of the 13 species located throughout the state. Observers made a note of breeding calls in order to track changes within a wetland area over time. Penfold's study found that species prefer certain wetland types, and vary in population over the years.
