Exposure to different experiences at Lake Superior State University helped me to learn and decide what I wanted to do with my life. There were many opportunities to help my learning experience, including day and weekend trips to various geological sites. It wasn’t all travel though; there was lots of hands-on experience that helped demonstrate what we learned in lectures.

Students May Not be Able to Afford Public Service Careers

As record numbers of students become civically engaged, they may face some harsh realities when it comes to how much they can give back after graduation. A new report from the U.S. Public Interest Research Group entitled "Paying Back, Not Giving Back: Student Debt's Negative Impact on Public Service Career Opportunities" examines what careers college graduates can't necessarily afford to pursue. High among them are education and social work. Low pay in these fields coupled with burgeoning student loan payments is creating "unmanageable" debt–and students needing to think twice about pursuing their vocational dreams.

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
