Activities on and off Campus:
Favorite thing about Lake State:
I really like how small and close-knit our campus is. It makes it easy to make friends, and whenever you walk across campus you are probably going to run into someone you know.
Best thing about going to school in Sault Ste. Marie:
Being so close to Canada, you can get the best of the Soo's in both countries.
What are some “Words of Wisdom” you would give to new LSSU Students?
Get involved right away and try to make as many new connections as possible.
Favorite Thing to do in the Soo:
Running on the snowmobile trails, down by the Soo Locks, downtown, and by all the other scenic attractions in the Soo.
Majoring in Sociology...
I love the small tight-knit community on campus.You always see someone you know while walking to class.Your professors know you on a first name basis. [ more ]
