Redefining the Classroom

ON BELAY! New climbing wall is on line . . .

Posted: March 13th, 2014

WALL IS SEAMORE-APPROVED – Lake Superior State University's official mascot Seamore the Sea Duck scales a newly installed, 26-foot climbing wall in LSSU's Arbuckle Student Activity Center (SAC) in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Waving from the right is Seamore's spotter, Dan Kozal of the LSSU maintenance department. Dick's Sporting Goods of Grand Rapids, Mich., donated wall sections during a 2011 campaign spearheaded by LSSU's Recreation Club. Remaining sections and hardware were funded through the LSSU Foundation Office by student donations of loose change. DeVere Construction of Alpena, Mich., installed two of four sections as a gift to LSSU students. The wall is open to LSSU students Mon.-Thurs., 6-9 p.m. LSSU clubs and teams can reserve times by contacting wall coordinator Paul Tumey. Hours for public access, as well as the date for an official grand opening, are forthcoming. (LSSU/ John Shibley)
