Student Services and Student Feedback


Types of Students and the Services That They Used 

We have a wide diversity of students at Lake Superior College, but one thing that is especially clear — this is a college for anyone of any age!  We always want to know more about student demographics, so we recently asked the students a couple of general questions.  You can see below that there is a mix of part and full time students, and a mix of traditional aged students (generally 18-22) and non-traditional aged students who may be returning to school after some time in the workplace.

There are many student services at LSC, and that interesting item at the end of this list called “other” might include students getting food and clothing assistance, or might include technology assistance, or might include club participation in everything from music to academic awards to robotics.
