Anna Wilson

"Lake State is a local University that gave me the option to earn my education while be located close to my family.  My short-term goal is to gain as much experience as possible in the community and to possibly continue my education toward a Masters Degree.  I’d like to continue my work within the city and take advantage of opportunities to be more involved in local politics.  In the long term, after I’ve made myself as competitive as possible the marketing field, I’d like to get a job at a medium to large size company and work more with individual products or brands as opposed to marketing a company itself."

" Currently I am a Board Member on the Sault Ste. Marie Downtown Development Authority, in which my marketing background has been beneficial.  Also, I work with the International 500 Snowmobile race as the Chairperson of the Non-Race Events Committee and I work in the pits doing timing for the race and other tasks.  I am studying snowmobile mechanics to eventually become a race official or snowmobile technician.  I compete on the Soo Co-op Credit Union bowling team and I’m continually involving myself in various community events."

This class will focus on works by three Michigan writers: Laura Kasischke, Mardi Jo Link, and Keith Taylor. Writers may be invited to class either in person or via Skype, giving students an opportunity to speak with the writer about his/her work. Students will write three short analysis papers, one for each text, and the course will culminate in a 5-7 page research paper that examines physical and emotional landscape within poems or an essay.

Much of society hold a view of science as a sterile, logical, and lifeless collection of facts and knowledge suddenly created from nothingness by brilliant, faceless people. This course is intended to enlighten students to the humanity behind scientific pursuits through the study of a number of prominent and interesting characters from scientific history. Students will gain an appreciation for the personal and societal factors influencing the scientific process from the natural philosophers to the modern era through the study of the people involved. In addition to the scientific discoveries of these characters, the stories behind these discoveries will be discussed.
