Andrea Hornblower

"An opportunity like this never would have come available to me if I had not taken the program in the Sault College/LSSU International Division," Hornblower said. "My employer was very impressed with the fact that I not only had a degree in computer networking, but the hands-on knowledge, as well. This is the main reason that I was hired."

Officer's Recreation Center

The recreational center was used by soldiers for entertainment purposes. Once the fort was converted to a university, the recreation center was used by students for dances and sporting events, until it burned down. A storage facility now stands in its place, used by students living on officer's row.

Library

The fort library was used as a library for one year after the fort was converted to a campus for Sault Branch and then converted to married student apartments. After being housed in South Hall for many years, a new library building was built in 1971 and named after Dr. Kenneth Shouldice, who is credited with transforming Lake Superior State college into the University it is today.


Warehouses, Hospital,Shops

The warehouses, hospital and machine shops were eventually replaced by the Cisler Center, CANUSA Hall and CASET Building. After the fort was bought by the state of Michigan the buildings were used for classrooms and storage facilities. The machine shops were used for heavy machine laboratories and drawing laboratories for engineering students. The hospital was used for chemistry, history, political science and geology classes and offices.


South Hall's Twin & Cafeteria

The infantry barracks were composed of twin buildings, one of which burned down in the early 1960's. Instead of rebuilding that section of the building a decision was made to build Crawford Hall, a new facility that would be adequate for scientific research. During the fire, the fort cafeteria, the structure connecting South Hall to its twin, was also destroyed.

Auditorium

An auditorium was built for Fort Brady in 1939 for use as a classroom for troops stationed there. The auditorium was used by the university until it was destroyed by fire in the early 1960s. Crawford Hall was built in its place.

Political Science

"The study of political science/law is basically the path of least resistance for me. It is a subject that has always interested me, and one that I have proved to be naturally insightful in. Studying political science isn’t just the study of how governments function or how it is composed, but the study of why it exists and to what ends. In short, it is the study of what makes everything else possible."
