Lake Superior State University Reviews
All of the professors are amazing and really know their stuff. They are often available and it's possible to form a really close relationship with them. The professors are also super passionate about what they're teaching, which makes a huge difference when you're trying to learn a hard subject.
It's also really easy to make friends on campus. There's clubs, sports, Greek life, intramurals, and you get to know your classmates in general! There is no way to walk across campus without running into at least one person you know.
Don't let the snow deter you, this is a great place to go to school and make life-long friends!
