About Lake Superior State University

LSSU is located in the picturesque Upper Peninsula – also known as the U.P. – overlooking Lake Superior and just minutes away from a seemingly endless list of outdoor recreational opportunities. Near campus, the area offers golf courses, bike trails, and places for fishing, boating, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and so much more. Just across the river is our sister city, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, which adds a unique international sense of place to our campus – and plenty more to do, both outside and inside.

Going Beyond at Lake Superior State University

At LSSU, we’re preparing students for a world where the only constant is change. Students at LSSU go beyond the traditional classroom experience with real-world, hands-on, engaged learning.

Lots of schools emphasize student-faculty interaction. At LSSU, we’ve mastered it. With an emphasis on undergraduate education and no teacher assistants, our professors truly know our students. We build relationships that go beyond the bachelor’s degree. Our students and faculty create a foundation for a lifelong educational experience.

Life On Campus and in Sault Sainte Marie

At LSSU, we are fortunate to have many vibrant student organizations, which are a wonderful resource for new students. All possess a wealth of information about academic programs, campus resources and social opportunities. It is easy to get involved with any club or organization in which you have an interest.

The Community of Sault Sainte Marie embraces students and faculty. Both groups work together to bring opportunities for fun and a better life to the area.

We’d like to hear from you!
