"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Recreation at Lake State and in the Soo

 Recreation*:

  • Refreshment by means of some pastime or the like.
  • A pastime, diversion, exercise, or other resource affording relaxation and enjoyment.

Students enjoying the recreation opportunities at LSSUBeing submersed in everyday college life can be trying, even to the most dedicated of students. Here at Lake State we know that there are times that you need to relax or enjoy some time away from your studies. This is why we have available on campus and around town many recreational activities that give students the opportunities to refresh themselves.

The Norris Center is a short walk from anywhere on campus and offers a great many activities that are available to students, such as the Student Activity Center (home to the intramural activities). The SAC also has weight rooms, racquetball, basketball and volleyball courts as well as a pool and hockey arena.

If you feel as though you want to escape campus, Sault Ste. Marie is a natural beauty that begs to be explored. Just across the river in Ontario there is Hiawatha Provincial Park as well as the beautiful Agawa Canyon. Around town there are parks, trails and sight-seeing opportunities such as Monocle Lake, Point Iroquois Lighthouse and Tahquamenon Falls. Year round there are many things to do outdoors such as: hiking, biking, backpacking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, fishing and hunting.

If outdoor exertion activities are not your thing, you could sign-up for a Yoga class, join the Pep Band, or join in one of the many student organizations that we have on campus. There are also many campus wide activities taking place year round, such as Great Lake State Weekend, Lakerpalooza and Winter Carnival. If creativity relaxes you, then how about an art class, host your own radio show, participate in campus performances at the Arts Center or write for the Compass, our student run newspaper.

LSSU offers recreational activities that exercise the mind, body and soul. Some require little or no commitment (working out in the gym or shooting some hoops down at the SAC), while others require a greater commitment (intramural sports and specialty clubs). If you don’t see something that you want to do, then gather some friends and create a club. Student Life here at the University is what you make of it and there will always be someone around who will encourage, support and make sure that you have an enjoyable, healthy and recreational experience while you study here.
