Alum Success

"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 Ferra 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.

Aquatic Ecology and Fisheries Science

July 14 - 19, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Develop skills in capturing, identifying, and comparing the animal communities, from insects to fish, that live in our local streams, lakes, and rivers. You will gain experience using basic aquatic ecology research techniques and equipment, including nets, traps, seines, and water quality meters. Learn the basics of fisheries science: set fyke nets and minnow traps, practice fish identification, learn to tag fish and predict population size with faculty from the LSSU Aquatic Research Laboratory.

Biomedical Sciences

July 21 - 26, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Learn and experiment in the state of the art science labs at LSSU. Labs will include dissections in the anatomy lab, experiments in the physiology lab, and DNA extraction in the genetics lab. This is an excellent camp for all who are interested in science, medicine, and health. 

Field Ecology and Environmental Science

July 21 - 26, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Field activities will include plant and animal identification, landscape interpretation, habitat analysis, stream quality assessment, mammal tracking, bird banding, aquatic insect analysis, night time insect trapping, and more. You will do background research and work up field samples in our biology labs that you collected. Analyze your data in our computer labs and learn how GIS and other computer applications help in ecology and conservation biology.practice fish identification, learn to tag fish and predict population size with faculty from the LSSU Aquatic Research Laboratory.

Amanda Zoerner Honors Biology Pre-veterinary Science, Business Minor

Amanda studied the interaction of genes that determine coat color in English Springer Spaniels. Springers are medium-sized hunting dogs that display a variety of colors and markings, depending upon the interaction of several genes. Zoerner's study used polymerase chain reaction and restriction enzyme analysis in the laboratory to detect gene mutations that caused differences in coat color.
