Lake Superior State University Reviews
Review Lake Superior State University
I was fond of the class sizes, the teachers, and the students. I was, however, not thrilled with the atmosphere or the location. Yes, the location is favorable for wildlife research, but the school itself was not impressive. It is built from the skeleton of a military base, but that is exactly what it feels like. The buildings are all brick and square. As soon as I visited other colleges, I immediately was enchanted with their buildings and grounds compared to LSSU. My moral of this review is to apply if it has your specific major, but don't put it as your priority.
The dorms I've said in so far where nice, I liked my freshmen year dorm the best so far, I'll be a Junior in the Fall. The best option was my sophomore year dorm, the bathrooms weren't committal. The worst option in my opinion was Osborn small size, the rooms I thought were very small but they were still very nice! The social atmosphere is nice, its a small campus so you get to know everyone in your hall for the most part. Cost is decent at about $8,000 a year.
With all of the recent gun violence, it's sometimes difficult to really feel safe on any campus. That being said, I feel that LSSU has really gone the extra mile to ensure that their campus is safe for all students. I was especially impressed by the school's decision to create a mandatory online course regarding sexual assault/safety hazards. I've never been to a college that has openly addressed these serious issues before.
