Successful students don't know it all; they know when to get the help they need.
Student First is free and open to all new freshmen. When you sign-up, we will tailor a program to meet your academic needs which might include:
- supplemental instruction,
- career exploration
- and opportunities to sharpen your time management, studying, note taking and test taking skills
As part of the program, you will also be paired with a peer coach from your field of interest, so you have something in common right from the start. Through the Student First Program, you will find and use these services early, ensuring a higher level of confidence in your decisions and a greater opportunity for academic success in your first year at Lake Superior State University.

Students will create a comprehensive and individualized academic success plan, develop critical strategies and skills for being a successful student, and participate in service learning experiences as they become active and valuable members of the LSSU community of learners.
