"My experience at Lake Superior State University is one of the best of my life. Not only did the education I received prepare me immensely for the work world, I made friendships and connections that are sure to last me a lifetime. LSSU is the perfect collegiate experience: exceptional educators, a welcoming community and the beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula."

The main entrance of Fort Brady was through the east gate. The east gate and Gate house were built in 1921 to shelter guards during fort operating hours. Today the gatehouse is used for electrical switching equipment.

While on active status, the grounds of Fort Brady were surrounded by twelve-foot fencing. Guards were stationed outside the fence at the east gate and at the Easterday Avenue exit.

A second, smaller entrance was located in the fencing along Easterday Avenue. This entrance made a loop around South Hall, where trucks would drop off soldiers and supplies. These trucks would park in front of the old Auditorium which burned down in the early 1960s.
