October 2016 Laker E-ffect

Autumn has definitely fallen - along with many leaves - at Lake Superior Sate University! Great Lake State Weekend 2016 saw record attendance, a hockey sweep of MSU, and plenty of smiles and celebrating. Kudos to the many departments on campus that all worked together to make this weekend a tremedous success, and to the hundreds of alumni who traveled back to campus to celebrate.

Did you order a copy of LSSU Alumni Today - the alumni directory published by Harris Connect? An update on that project: Harris Connect merged with Publishing Concepts last summer. Both companies are very reputable and respected among alumni association nationwide. However, this merger did cause some delays in our project. The LSSU alumni directory, originally planned to be mailed on August 2016, is now scheduled to be shipped in November. Thank you for your patience and understanding with this delay.
