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."

Understanding Traditional-Aged New Students with the Beloit College Mindset List

Will anything surprise you?

Trying to understand this generation of traditional-aged college students? The folks at Beloit College (WI) have been publishing an eye-opening Mindset List for several years that lists 75 characteristics of each incoming class. Topics run the gamut from politics to technology to world affairs to entertainment, and beyond!

The Mindset List is the brainchild of Beloit's Keefer Professor of the Humanities Tom McBride and Director of Public Affairs Ron Nief. Together, they offer valuable insights for parents, administrators and others who are continually trying to better understand today's students.

Take a peek at this year's list by heading to www.beloit.edu/~pubaff/mindset/. You'll also find archived lists from past years to better understand those older students/past students in your life.
