"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."

Administrative Professionals Day is April 26

Whether your student was an on-campus resident, commuted from home or lived in an off-campus apartment, there is an excellent chance that they needed the help of an administrative professional or support staff person this year. These folks help with everything from room assignments, to class scheduling problems, to issues with meal cards. They have an impact on just about every area on campus.

April 26 is Administrative Professionals Day and it seems the perfect time for your student (and you) to thank one or more of these professionals who have helped you throughout the academic year. Here are a few ideas on how to do just that:

  • Have your student take the support staff a box of munchkins or donut holes with a note that thanks them for “Filling in the hole” that is left from you being at home while your student is at college.
  • Send the staff member a virtual card or some type of online gift certificate. This is a great way to reach out from afar and most administrative professionals are linked into their computers most of the day.
  • Have your student drop off a candy treat such as a Nestle Crunch bar with a note attached that says “Thanks for helping my son/daughter in a crunch.” Or a roll of Life Savers with a note that says “You were a real life saver for my son/daughter. Thank you for your help.”

This group is a huge asset on any campus, take a minute to thank them for their help!

"The opportunity at LSSU to do research is amazing. This past summer I motored through coves and islands with Prof. Garvon surveying water birds for the affects of pollution. I spent the other part of my summer on the shore of Lake Superior monitoring nests of the endangered Piping Plover."
