Ben Mitchell

Ben Mitchell
Mechanical Engineering '06

Ben Mitchell grew up in a devout household in the central Upper Peninsula of Michigan where emphasis was placed on helping others. He traveled with his father to places such as Kenya and Peru on short-term medical missions. When he was in Kenya, a missionary explained that engineers have the greatest potential to influence the largest number of people. During high school, Ben participated in a youth mission trip to Tijuana. A result of the mission trips, his family decided to adopt three Vietnamese children when he was a junior.

All of these experiences had a great influence on Ben’s outlook on life. He decided to major in mechanical engineering and enrolled at Lake Superior State University. Near the end of his senior year, he decided to volunteer for the Peace Corps to help others.

His two-year commitment began in the fall of 2007 and took Ben to Burkina Faso in western Africa. He resides in the village of Tansila, population 3,000, approximately 10 km from the Mali border. His host organization is the local cotton growers union. It works cooperatively with other villages to improve and expand their production techniques. He serves as an agribusiness advisor as a part of the Small Enterprise Development program which helps create market linkages and assists with the advancement of business skills.

LSSU GPA Calculator

Academic Grade Point Average (GPA) information is provided on all Lake Superior State University official and unofficial transcripts. Overall cumulative GPA information appears on the last line. A GPA is calculated by dividing the Quality Points (QPTS) by the GPA Hours (GPA HRS).

You can use the LSSU GPA Calculator to estimate your GPA for the current semester and to estimate how your semester GPA effects your overall cumulative GPA.

Please Note: The LSSU GPA Calculator is informational only! Please be aware that certain grades (CR/NC, Audit, I, N, or W) are not considered gradable and are not calculated in the GPA. Courses considered  "at less than 100 level" (i.e. ENGL091, MATH081, MATH082, etc.) are also not counted into the GPA. This calculator also does NOT calculate the impact of repeated courses.

Please contact the Registrar's Office if you have any questions or concerns about your LSSU transcript and/or GPA. To view your LSSU unofficial transcript online follow the directions below or one can be obtained at the Registrar's Office located in the Fletcher Center for Student Services.
