"My two business degrees from LSSU were instrumental in preparing me to work at all levels of Edison Sault Electric (ESE), concluding with the privilege of becoming ESE President in 1998. My company also takes pride in that 14 out of a total of 17 management personnel and about 20% of hourly employees at ESE either have degrees from or have attended a substantial number of classes at LSSU. Finally, our company and employees have contributed in excess of $500,000 to various LSSU projects over the last 25 years. ESE Believes in Blue."

After presenting a report of its year-long community outreach projects to a panel of business leaders, the team was named a regional champion.

“The competition in the league that we competed in was fierce. We feel honored to be named alongside Carnegie Mellon as the only two regional champions in our league,” said Shyla Jones, president of the LSSU team.

SIFE is an international non-profit organization active on more than 1,400 university campuses in 48 countries. Its teams create economic opportunities in their communities by organizing outreach projects that focus on market economics, entrepreneurship, personal financial success skills, and business ethics.

During this academic year, the LSSU SIFE team organized seven projects in the Sault Ste. Marie community, including the second LSSU Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, which will complete approximately 140 returns for low-income residents of Chippewa County; two Passport Fairs, which facilitated 211 passport applications; and a customer service seminar for ninth- and 10th-grade students at Sault Area High School who are seeking part-time employment.

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 ]
