"My experience at Lake Superior State University is one of the best of my life. Not only did the education I received prepare me immensely for the work world, I made friendships and connections that are sure to last me a lifetime. LSSU is the perfect collegiate experience: exceptional educators, a welcoming community and the beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula."

Office of the President

Past Presidents: The Light Years, 1982-1986

Dr. Kenneth Light

Dr. Kenneth Light, former Vice President for Academic Affairs, was selected by the Board of Control to succeed President Shouldice in 1982. He was instrumental in establishing the Lake Superior State College Foundation as the institution's fund-raising arm.

Academic programs such as automated systems engineering technology and fire science were added, and significant strides were made in computer applications in both academic and administrative operations. In addition, an aquatic laboratory was established on the St. Mary's River with the help of the Edison Sault Electric Company. The Lab continues to make significant contributions to the St. Mary's River and beyond.

Fire Science

LSSU's dedicated three-story fire lab made all the difference to Brian Applegate.

"Our certification training classes offered real situations," Brian says. Students practice victim search techniques while controlling and extinguishing fires. Applegate says his favorite exercise was the live fire flashover simulation. "We saw how fires evolved as they burned," he says. "It’s as close as you can get to the real thing."
