"My two business degrees from LSSU were instrumental in preparing me to work at all levels of Edison Sault Electric (ESE), concluding with the privilege of becoming ESE President in 1998. My company also takes pride in that 14 out of a total of 17 management personnel and about 20% of hourly employees at ESE either have degrees from or have attended a substantial number of classes at LSSU. Finally, our company and employees have contributed in excess of $500,000 to various LSSU projects over the last 25 years. ESE Believes in Blue."

SavannahSue Rondeau

SavannahSue Rondeau has always been interested in firefighting. For the last three years she has been a volunteer firefighter her hometown of Oakdale, Minnesota.

"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.

"My long term plans are to move to a large city and become a medical chief or arson investigator," she says.

"The Honors program has helped tremendously with my transition into my experience at LSSU. I live in Honors House — Ontario Hall — which does not hold many people. Therefore, I quickly made good friends who showed me the campus and life on campus. In addition, being in small Honors classes gave me connections to learn from not only professors, but the other students as well. Honors classes and seminars are at a higher level that does require more work on top of regular classes. However, the payoff is knowing I can compete and do all that is expected of me while still maintaining good grades in other classes. The big payoff will be when I earn a degree with Honors."

"The opportunity at LSSU to do research is amazing. This past summer I motored through coves and islands with Prof. Garvon surveying water birds for the affects of pollution. I spent the other part of my summer on the shore of Lake Superior monitoring nests of the endangered Piping Plover."
