Alum Success

Prior to my time at Lake State, my professors rarely learned students' names and my classes often felt impersonal. I didn't realize how important that faculty interaction could be until I spent a few weeks here. The personal attention is motivating, often pushing me to work harder than I would have otherwise.

Programs > Biology: Health Professions (Pre-med, Pre-dental, Pre-vet)

The B.S. in Biology with a minor in chemistry prepares students for medical, dental, veterinary, optometry, podiatry, chiropractic, and physician assistant graduate studies.  Biology students will work with a pre-professional advisor to select the electives best suited for the health professional program of their choice while also providing a well- rounded biology education.  The LSSU Biology department is recognized by all health professional schools in Michigan as a top rate biology program.  LSSU participates in the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine's Early Assurance Program.  Pre-medical students at LSSU have the opportunity to apply for and gain admission to MSU-CHM during their junior year in college.

Is LSSU a good place to begin training as a veterinarian? "Our pre-professional advisor knows all the ins and outs of applying to all the professional schools and provides excellent advice for that. Our pre-professional society (the student group for pre-professional students) is very active in ways that helps students enhance thier applications to professional schools. We have had a number of our students go on to vet school, last year our two applicants into vet school ended up going to Michigan State University and Purdue. This year of the six students that applied to professional schools, all six got it. But i want to emphasize that it's up to each individual student to gain the experience they need to have the best chance of success in veterinary or any other professional school. Our program helps, but it's up to the individual student. Our small classes, our individualized attention, our academically rigourous programs, our collaborative atmosphere, our senior thesis program all can help you prepare yourself for application to professional schools." -- Gregory Zimmerman, Prof and Dept Head

Habitat Removal: White- tailed Deer

John Kilponen

John Kilponen of Ann Arbor, MI studied the effects of Striped Maple (Acer Pennsylvanicum) removal on habitat use by White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus) on Hiawatha Sportsmanís Club land. His results showed that removal of an undesirable species of tree can create access to habitat that was previously inaccessible to White-tailed deer. Also, as sivicultural practices change the forest mosaic certain guidelines can alter the regrowth of the habitats. This research is important for people managing land for both forestry practices and wildlife habitat.
