Favorite thing about Lake State:
The small class sizes allow professors to get to know you - it's really personable.
Best thing about going to school in Sault Ste. Marie:
There is always something to do outdoors.
What are some “Words of Wisdom” you would give to new LSSU Students?
College is a balancing act: work hard with your future in mind, but live a little and enjoy this time while you have it.
Favorite Thing to do in the Soo:
The Soo has amazing sunsets. Driving around finding places to watch sunsets.
Go sledding the the winter.
Go driving in the country in the fall - the colors are amazing.
Robotics and Computer Science
"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
