Lake Superior State University Reviews
I am a freshman this year, and I have had such an incredible experience already. The professors are extremely helpful and actually teach both lectures and labs unlike other universities, and therefore, it can give the students one-on-one time with their professors. The Lake State environment is indescribable with how much the professors push their students to success. It is very encouraging as a Lake State student knowing that everyone has the same potential to succeed. In addition, Lake State has many hands-on opportunities, unlike other universities, that helps students understand theories and concepts. The labs really aid students in gasping all the knowledge that they can while providing the students with outstanding hands-on applications.
Grown in this area for years and finally attended the college after completing high school. Large, but not too large campus. Was overwhelming at first, but adjusting was very easy as my advisors and professors and friends I made along the way helped me love this college with all of my heart. There has been major changes to the campus from clubs to a new president. Fun activities to do on campus and sometimes off if you're the drinking age. Being close to Canada helps when you want to go see a movie since it's literally a block away to the International Bridge. I recommend not eating from the cafeteria, but the chefs have learned from past experiences to connect with the students more with suggestions and comments cards. Overall, great university with humble standards.
Lake Superior State University is an amazing college in Michigan if you are looking for a small but helpful school. LSSU allows most of it's undergraduates to work with technology (especially in the science field) that most graduates get to use. Not only that but they ask a senior research projects and allows many opportunities to work with professors to be published!
