Luke Fera '06
Biology Major

"LSSU has a great reputation for placing students in graduate and professional schools. Many of my classmates from LSSU are now pursuing graduate and professional studies at some of the finest universities in Canada and the United States."

"The student-faculty interaction and the ability to conduct research at the undergraduate level really helped me to achieve success in a competitive graduate program. My professors at LSSU were always interested in helping us succeed."

Luke Fera of Sault Ste. Marie graduated from LSSU in 2006 with a degree in biology and is now working toward a master's degree in epidemiology at University of Western Ontario in London. He plans to continue his studies in the medical sciences.

Shane Carley

Shane Carley used ground-penetrating radar to locate lost gravesites in one of Sault Ste. Marie's oldest cemeteries. Most of the cemetery's records were lost in a 1970s city hall fire. City government needed to know where graves were for reasons of closure for relatives and ongoing expansion plans. Carley presented his results to a grateful city commission, and went on to publish his techniques and results as a senior thesis project. A poster of his work took first place in the nation for undergraduates at the American Institute of Professional Geologist meeting in San Diego. The award netted him $750. Carley went on to present at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco.

"I'm now working with a large group of respected scientists on the TAIGER project. Earlier in the summer it involved deploying and retrieving ocean-bottom instruments for what is called passive seismology, which deduces movement between two seismic plates in the Pacific. My analysis at the University of New York at Binghamton will use passive earthquake data to model what's happening off the coast of Taiwan in three dimensions."
