Lake Superior State University is an outstanding school both extracurricular and academic wise. The Student Government always puts different events on which any student can participate in thus making schooling worth while. Everyone is extremely nice, professors are willing to actually help you and go through exams and preparation with you.

I would rate Lake Superior State as a good, close-knit University with an opportunity to meet most of the students there and accomplish your goals there without the big-city distraction. One is able to focus and achieve as a student at Lake Superior State University.
