Wrapping it up
You can help a future Laker
One cool perk that costs you nothing: If you know a student who is considering Lake Superior State University for college (or even if they're not, you could suggest it!) you can get their application fee waived - just because you are an alumnus/a of LSSU! All you have to do is complete this form and send it to the Alumni office. We'll take care of the rest. Do your good deed for the day and help a prospective student save a few bucks!
