Lake Superior State University continues its celebrated history and tradition by inviting a very special group of our alumni, the Golden Graduates – to be a special part of the LSSU Commencement ceremony each year. Since 2000, the Golden Grads have receive a special invitation to come back to campus to attend a special reception and lead the Commencement procession. In 2014, this special group established – the Golden Graduate Society Scholarship – as a way to give back to the University that has made such a difference in their lives. The scholarship was endowed in 2019, and is awarded to a student who has earned at least sophomore status with a minimum 3.0 GPA and is majoring in any course of study at the University, with preference given to students majoring in Engineering or Education. Eligible candidates must also submit a minimum 250-word essay answering the questions: Why did you choose to attend LSSU? And, what unique historical fact have you learned about LSSU during your time at the University?
