"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

LSSU Elders is an association of Lifelong Learners. The Association is dedicated to provide continuous learning and social opportunities tailored to the interest of older adults. It provides personal growth, camaraderie and a sense of community. A wide variety of classes are offered each quarter. Typical schedules might consist of current events, historical subjects, religious, estate planning, geology, birding, horticulture, quilting, classical music, poetry, literature and book discussions, travelogues, trips and visits to nearby sites.

The LSSU Elders was started in 1994 with a mission to provide continuous educational opportunities and activities for people age 50 and older residing in this area. It is membership driven, and classes and activities are offered each year as a result of membership input. The Elder hostel Institute Network (EIN) is a voluntary association of Lifelong Learning Institutes across North America. For more information call 906-635-2802.

Here at LSSU the Elders have a lot to offer the younger students as well as the faculty.

"One of my favorite things about LSSU is its size. The classrooms, especially as you get to the upper levels, get smaller, so you not only have a chance to discuss your ideas in an honest, supportive manner, but you also get to know your professors and classmates. The upper level courses really allow you to focus on what you love, and the small class size allows you to have time to share and to discuss your ideas."
