Prepared Graduates

"I appreciate everything you have done for me! My education and experiences at LSSU have lead me to a really good career. At work I apply my knowledge of animal biological systems, laboratory experiences, and interaction skills. I eventually would like to do teaching part time at a community college here in Madision. There is a course at a community college here that Covance is involved in that teaches animal husbandry and care for laboratory animals, which is a top priority at my company."

"Personal relationships with the professors - and not just one professor, all professors. Also, the atmosphere at LSSU is very friendly and offers rewarding opportunities to be involved in campus life.”
