Biology Major

Communications and SPC Administrator, Drinking Source Water Protection Division of the Sault Ste. Marie Region Conservation Authority (Ontario)

"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."

Honors Program

Message from the Director

 

The Honors Program is a unique program on a unique campus. We take motivated students, and, through our close work with them, we help those students to bring their own gifts to fruition. We require much of our students: academic focus, leadership, and conscientiousness. The Michigan Honors Association conference, the Fall retreat, and the Senior Thesis experience have become hallmarks of our Program in recent years. I look forward to our being joined by the future honors students, who will inherit our traditions and shape our future.

Hands-on Training...

Fire Science

LSSU's dedicated three-story fire lab made all the difference to Brian Applegate.

"Our certification training classes offered real situations," Brian says. Students practice victim search techniques while controlling and extinguishing fires. Applegate says his favorite exercise was the live fire flashover simulation. "We saw how fires evolved as they burned," he says. "It’s as close as you can get to the real thing."
