Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for hockey. Here in the eastern upper peninsula of Michigan, we love our hockey. We might not always be good at it, but it is what we are know for. We are a hockey school through and through forever bleeding gold and blue!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Get good friends. At college you will face many obsticals as you step into this new portion of your life. You can do it alone, but you won't have a social life if you try to do it alone. Now is your chance, find friends that will last for a lifetime. Make sure that they are good friends that give only positive peer pressure. Don't go it alone. Build relationships and work together toward your futures.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is the weather. Sad right? I gets really cold in the winter most times. Don't worry its not too bad. Overall, really it is the weather that sucks. It will rain for a while then get cold, then snow, then be sunny. But yeah the weather is the suckiest part of this school.

Lake Superior State University is located in the frigid Upper Peninsula of Michigan, most people don't even know the area exists.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do not be discouraged. You will have a challenging class or end up completely broke at some point in your college career. It's inevitable, there's nothing you can do about it. Don't stress too much, but at the same time don't stress too little. Keep youself in check.

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you like the outdoors, don't mind the cold, and enjoy small class sizes, Lake State wold be a university for you.

When choosing the right college nmake sure that the college suits your needs. Vist the college before hand if possible. Make sure that its somewhere that your can be comfortable, somewhere that you can picture yourself living for a long time. Most importantly pick a college where you can the best education, meaning dont pick the college that has the hottest parties and most fun (even though that maybe what you really what you want lol). College is not just about fun its about preparing a brighter future for yourself, so pick somewhere where that you can be focused. When entering college be optimistic and open minded to things that you may not be used to, try new things and talk to many people. One of the best things you will gain from college is a great experience so have fun, be open minded, but also be smart and make good decisions.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I dont regret not knowing anything before i came to this school. For me it was a wondeful learning experience i and would rather go and learn about things rather than already know it. It makes it more fun.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school would probably be the lack of fun. When i hear about other schools they have way more fun than we do. Dont get me wrong our campus sponsers many events but they are not the kind of events that everyone is extremely excited about. If it wasnt for hockey oue school would most likely suck in the category of social life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you pick a school that will compliment your style of learning as well as your social style. Just because a place is big and looks very good might not suite your style if you like to have a more personal relationship with your professors. If you dont mind being a number then big schools are great but if you like the teacher knowing your name and being able to have a relationship with the people in your class then smaller schools could be the way to go. Never let the look of the school be your final decision, its about the educational quality that you are paying for, not the scenery.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

How much fun history classes are and how hard your major would be come Junior and Senior year.

Lake Superior State University is a small university that offers something for everyone in the great outdoors of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When you graduate high school, do not go to a college based on the athletic teams that you may have supported throughout the years or the mileage to and from your hometown. It is important to focus on what's really important, your education. Make sure that the university has your top 3 choices of interest for study. It never hurts to do a little research before you attend the school, find out why other students attend that school, what views students generally hold, and the extra-curricular activities that you can get yourself involved in. College is a time for you to slowly grow-up, by the end of your 4 + years, your university should have helped you find yourself and the place you should go next. As you will be spending years of your life at this college or university, it is important that you are happy and are able to enjoy every minute of it, even if you are in class.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who enjoys the outdoors should most definitely attend Lake Superior State University. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area that does not cost any money. Also, with Canada being located just across the river, it is a great place for photography and sight seeing. LSSU is a tight-knit campus that satisifes students each year. Students that come to this university must love the snow and be able to handle the cold winters!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In order to find the right college, it is incredibly important to look at the extracurricular interests of the student. Yes, academics is an essential ingredient to the college experience, but no one could make it through all of that without the proper outlets to make friends and stay true to oneself. It has been proven that getting involved on campus brings up ones GPA, but what advisors and orientation leaders will not tell you is that getting involved on campus helps you to become the outstanding student that you truely want to be, that it will shape you to be an outgoing, friendly, and - most importantly - successful member of your college campus.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The administration and staff tend to ignore student concerns. They do not take as much time as they should to help students with their problems, especially when it comes to financial aid issues.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is outdoors oriented and sports oriented. You should be outgoing and a people person, as spending time with friends is about the only thing to do in the area.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure to take advantage of any oppurtunity to take a college tour, or to visit the any colleges you are interested in. Don't wait until your orientation, go during the school year, when the whole day isn't focused on impressing newcomers. If you going on a random day during the year, you will see what the school is really like. Join extra curriculars, I strongly suggest Greek Life, but anything will work, just get involved. You will make lots of friends, and it will help you feel more accomplished. Also, as cliche as it sounds, go to class, and do you work. You will really regret it if you blow off your freshman year, and then have to stay an extra year to retake a couple classes. Remember, college is a new place, with new people, and new oppurtunities. If you didn't like who you were in high school, now is the time to change it. No one will judge you here, we don't know you were the dorky kid in high school. Be whoever you want to be.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about this school is how close to home I am. I can go home to see my family whenever I want, but I am still on my own, and have that feeling of independance.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about this school is the way the administration acts. They treat students as if we were small children, and they act is if their decisions do not affect us. They don't deal with our issues, at all, let alone in any timely fashion. They are too busy spending money on Cadilacs and moving handicapped signs to fix the sidewalks, or make condemned housing buildings livable again.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice that can be given is to choose whats right for you. NOT your parents, they will give you advice on whats best for you and them not just you. Weigh in big vs small school, prices, majors, and even climate because that can change your college experiance drastically. Also, if the University you choose has the opportunity to participate in Greek life, give it a shot. It's not animal house, its a family, and a home away from home.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who does not mind the cold, the wind, and and the blindly conservative

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say that you gotta find a college that is right for you, just because a college is well known does not mean that they have the best programs or the best way of teaching the programs they do have. If you dont like cities and the hustle and bustle then you wont like a big school so dont go to those ones. There are plenty of smaller Universities that are just as good and sometimes better out there waiting for you application. So dont decide your school because of its name, meet some of the professors, sit in on some classes, and decide for yourself if you like the atmostphere. Its your next four years and your paying for it so why not get what you like and feel comfortable in, then the learning should come eaiser.

What's unique about your campus?

I love that the school is small and very student oriented. It is a nice change as opposed to the bigger schools who seem to only want to churn out the next batch of students so they can make money. At LSSU you really do get the feeling that your a part of the school and not just another paying customer.
