Loralei Premo '07
Biology Major

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."

About Derek Faasse

I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, where I lived for 8 years. While in Kalamazoo, I worked at a preschool and infant center as a teacher in the Young Fives program as well as a caregiver in the nursery. It was there that I developed my passion for educating and allowing others to reach their full potential, regardless of age.

Prior to college, I attended Lee High School in Wyoming, Michigan, where my graduating class was only 50 students. Because of my experience with personal attention and a close-knit community, I'm a huge proponent of what LSSU has to offer to all its students.

In my free time I enjoy being active, and consider myself somewhat of a competitive runner. I've run at least one mile every single day in 2012 and put more than 1200 miles running onto my feet in 2011, a figure that will increase in 2012. I enjoy racing and have a number of top finishes at various distances. Apart from running, I love to cook, bike, swim, read, and write music.

For the past 8 years I have worked as an instructor and music arranger for many of Michigan's top marching band programs and I love sharing my passion for music with people of all ages.

Like I mentioned, I have a passion for helping others reach their full potential and find their passion in life. If you have any questions about what LSSU can do for you, feel free to get in touch with me and I'll be happy to help in any way that I can.

Hands-on Training...

Fire Science

LSSU's dedicated three-story fire lab made all the difference to Brian Applegate.

"Our certification training classes offered real situations," Brian says. Students practice victim search techniques while controlling and extinguishing fires. Applegate says his favorite exercise was the live fire flashover simulation. "We saw how fires evolved as they burned," he says. "It’s as close as you can get to the real thing."
