Lake Superior State University Opened Newest Location in Central Michigan
Lake Superior State University opened its newest location in St. Helen, Mich., for the fall 2020 semester. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was on Tuesday, July 28, 2020, at the area site, which is at Charlton Heston Academy in Richfield Township, Roscommon County.
