Amanda Zoerner says, "I have wanted to be a veterinarian since second grade. During my sophomore and junior years of high school, I started looking into other in-state colleges where I could get an undergraduate degree in pre-veterinary medicine.
I chose LSSU for three reasons.
First was campus size. I come from a town of 1,600; Michigan State's campus has 45,000 people. The adjustment for an incoming freshman is hard to begin with -- try adding in a feeling of invisibility.
Second, the tuition rate at LSSU is affordable and not completely unreasonable, like at many other universities. Thanks to my high school grade point average and my ACT scores, I was able to get a nice scholarship as well.
Thirdly, LSSU offers a business minor program as part of my studies, which will give me an edge if I want to start my own business."

This program prepares students for entrance into medical, dental, veterinary, optometry, chiropractic, and podiatry schools.
