Great Lake State Weekend

Kicking off Great Lake State Week!

It is time for Great Lake State Week and Weekend 2010 (also known as GLSW10)! This is LSSU’s Homecoming weekend, and it is a collaborative effort between the Alumni & Student Life offices, and also SAILS, Student Government and Activities Board. GLSW has events for students and their families, Lake State alumni and of course LSSU employees as well. GLSW has something for everyone with Lake State connections! Click here for a full schedule of events and watch for daily updates on the portal.

The big weekend is preceded by GLSWeek, which features daily events for students. Events are posted on the Campus Event Calendar and there will be daily highlights on the portal. The Week kicks off Monday morning with homemade muffins in all the academic building lobbies prior to 8:00 and 9:00am classes. Yum!
