“The material covered in LSSU's engineering program provided me a solid foundation for graduate studies. The systematic approach and communication skills needed to tackle engineering projects were taught and then practiced over and over again. In particular I appreciate the many hours spent by the faculty to develop oral presentation skills in each student. As a graduate student now, these skills have proven to be highly beneficial and, to my surprise, obviously not taught to the same extent at many other universities.”

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."
