"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.

Student Research...

Ellsworth, Michigan

Jonathon studied the foraging behavior of white-tailed deer. Previous studies claim that deer have the ability to determine which vegetation will benefit them the most during different times of the year. In the fall, deer select diets high in energy content to maintain body mass and temperature. Nachazel's study explored the relationship between preferred white-tailed deer forage and energy levels found in the three types of vegetation. His results will assist managers in helping decrease mortality rates during the winter.
