"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."

VITA
Lake Superior State University accounting majors and members of Students in Free Enterprise are helping people in the community with their tax returns over the next several weeks through the Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

"Six of the students have taken the personal income tax course offered through LSSU to prepare them for this," said Norm Guild, an LSSU accounting major from DeTour and one of the students organizing the project. "The seventh has been certified online through the Internal Revenue Service website."

The seven students are enrolled in a special topics course taught by Prof. Mindy Poliski of the LSSU School of Business, Economics and Legal Studies.

Their group project came about as the result of a meeting among area human service agencies that were looking for a way to provide free tax preparation services to low income wage earners and senior citizens. The students took their lead from Jennifer Storey, community resource coordinator with the Chippewa County Dept. of Human Services in Sault Ste. Marie. Storey is coordinating transportation for clients who are unable to get to appointments on their own.

According to an IRS representative administering the VITA project, LSSU is the only college in the state that is providing this service right now.

I absolutely love the small size of LSSU. Everything on campus is within a short walking distance. Also, with smaller class sizes, itís much easier to get to know people. There are even professors I had from a couple of years ago that still remember me. It has even become difficult for me to walk across campus without running into someone I know. This has created a very positive experience for me. [ more ]
