"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."

Office of the President

LSSU is known for its distinctive programs that provide a great deal of hands-on experience and research opportunities for undergraduates that are not often found at other schools. Our students work side-by-side with faculty who are dedicated to teaching, passionate about their fields of study, and genuinely care about the welfare of their students, all of whom they know by name. An LSSU education can open doors and create opportunities for the rest of your life. We are focused on student success and dedicated to supporting a community of learning and discovery.
