Alum Success

"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."

VITA
Lake Superior State University accounting majors and members of Students in Free Enterprise are helping people in the community with their tax returns over the next several weeks through the Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

"Six of the students have taken the personal income tax course offered through LSSU to prepare them for this," said Norm Guild, an LSSU accounting major from DeTour and one of the students organizing the project. "The seventh has been certified online through the Internal Revenue Service website."

The seven students are enrolled in a special topics course taught by Prof. Mindy Poliski of the LSSU School of Business, Economics and Legal Studies.

Their group project came about as the result of a meeting among area human service agencies that were looking for a way to provide free tax preparation services to low income wage earners and senior citizens. The students took their lead from Jennifer Storey, community resource coordinator with the Chippewa County Dept. of Human Services in Sault Ste. Marie. Storey is coordinating transportation for clients who are unable to get to appointments on their own.

According to an IRS representative administering the VITA project, LSSU is the only college in the state that is providing this service right now.

I absolutely love the small size of LSSU. Everything on campus is within a short walking distance. Also, with smaller class sizes, itís much easier to get to know people. There are even professors I had from a couple of years ago that still remember me. It has even become difficult for me to walk across campus without running into someone I know. This has created a very positive experience for me. [ more ]
