Zack chose and fell in love with LSSU because of the small campus and class sizes. This small campus helped Zack to get involved in a number of activities, including Activities Board and the Student Athletic Training Association that gives him experience within his desired field. Zack’s favorite experience at LSSU has been ”working for Campus Life over the summer and getting to help plan Laker Week by seeing what goes on behind the scenes.“
