Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

September 11th

Five Years Later

In the midst of this exciting month comes the five-year anniversary of 9/11. Many campuses will be commemorating this occasion, which is the most major world event for today's traditional-aged students.

Don't hesitate to discuss 9/11 with your student. He many want to process through how he's feeling about the state of the world now, especially in light of August's foiled plot to compromise flights from the United Kingdom to the U.S. She may want to think back to that day in 2001 and how it impacted her or to talk about what's happening on campus surrounding 9/11 memorials.

Discussing 9/11 in the context of thoughts and emotions is yet another way to connect with your student on his path to adulthood.
