Luke Fera '06
Biology Major

"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.

Health CARE Center
Health care services are available on campus!  The Health CARE Center offers a wide range of services to our students including treatment of illness, injury, annual physical examinations, immunizations, and allergy injections. The Health CARE Center is staffed by a certified nurse practitioner, physician assistant and a consulting physician.   Our providers have prescriptive authority to order a wide range of prescriptions.  Services are available Monday through Friday from 8a.m. – 5 p.m.  Hours of operation are reduced during the summer semester and University breaks.

Appointments are appreciated but walk-ins are accepted as time permits, for an appointment 635-2110 or on campus ext 2110.

The Health CARE Center does bill and accept most insurance plans for services rendered at the Health CARE Center.  We do ask that students present an insurance card at the time of service.  For students who maintain three or more credit hours LSSU has created a student health plan to cover services rendered at the Health CARE Center. The majority of onsite services are provided at no out of pocket expense to the student. 

An insurance plan is available for the uninsured student which may be purchased; this is separate from the student health plan. Lake Superior State University does not endorse this plan but simply makes it available to the student.  Information regarding this plan is available at the Health Care Center. 

Note:  International students (Ontario students excluded) are required to provide proof of purchased health and accident insurance. If you need insurance, it can be obtained through Student Assurance Services Incorporated. (Information is available at www.sas-mn.com)  

Immunizations Recommended:   Meningitis, Hepatitis B (series of three) and MMR (2nd dose).

For additional information, please contact the Health CARE Center at 906-635-2110 or visit our website.

Food Services
We’ve got your health in mind.  We offer four eatery locations on campus all with a wide selection of menu items.  Be sure to visit our website for the menu items, weekly specials, nutritional information and hours of operation.      

Counseling Center
Personal non-clinical counseling support is available to all students enrolled full time at LSSU.

University students are provided with many new opportunities and choices, both academic and social. Everyone from time to time feels overwhelmed by problems that can be difficult to sort out or cope with alone. The professional staff at Counseling Services does not want students to feel alone when in need of support.  Our counselors will provide you with approachability, honesty, and information where appropriate and timely, facilitate development of your own insight, and assist you in weighing the consequences of options as you make your own decisions.

For additional information, please contact Counseling Services at 906-635-2752 or visit our website.

Environmental Health

What made Rachel's Lake Superior State experience so unique was the practical research she did with top-notch faculty.

"I really enjoyed working with environmental chemistry professor Judy Westrick and biologist Deb Stai," Rachel says. "For my senior project, we evaluated a lab method for cultivating a fungus that causes infections in humans."
