Communications and SPC Administrator, Drinking Source Water Protection Division of the Sault Ste. Marie Region Conservation Authority (Ontario)

"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."

Students and parents will find that shopping in the Sault can be an international experience. Not only do we have the best fudge in the country (at least we believe so, try it for yourself!), we also offer all the necessary amenities your student will need.

Downtown Sault, MI has a variety of specialized shops and restaurants enabling you to spend an afternoon walking around downtown, enjoying our small city atmosphere. For those of you looking for more of the "city life", Sault, ON has two large malls and a plethora of unique restaurants. Crossing the International Bridge is easy and quick. LSSU also offers the I-Hop, which is a local bus service that travels between the Twin Saults.

The restaurants and business around town love our college students and offer an array of discounts to anyone with a LSSU student ID. For example, a great many pizza places around town offer special deals to our students. And if you live in the dorms, don’t be troubled, because they deliver there too!

If you decide to stay up here in the summer and are looking for employment, the seasonal shops downtown often hire college students for the summer. This is a great way to get involved in the community as well as gain life experience.

"I love the fast pace environment, the people in the profession, and the adrenaline rush of running into a burning building or saving someone’s life," she says.

Rondeau chose Lake Superior State University because it offers the first accredited four-year fire science degree in the United States. She also jumped at the challenge of LSSU's Honors program, which requires her to complete 21 Honors credits, including 10 credits for an Honors seminar/thesis project.
