Lake Superior State University Reviews

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!
LSSU has been a great school to attend so far. The most amazing thing this school has to offer are the personal relationships you will make with the faculty. These relationships open up many opportunities for success. The only thing I would change about LSSU is the requirements to pass basic math classes. The final grade you have acquired in the class does not matter unless you pass the final exam with at least a C average. I do not believe in this because some people, like myself, simply do not test well, but have no issues completing homework and class work. I feel as though the final grade should be a combination of your final grade in the class as well as your final exam score.
