Group Works to Turn Sault Ste. Marie into "University Town"

Posted: Updated:

How can you make a 'Town with a University' into a 'University Town?'

That's the question the group called Sault United is trying to answer as they work toward making Sault Ste. Marie more of a University Town.

The goal of this group is to figure out how to best unite the town, with Lake Superior State University.

They hope to expand recreational and retail activities, and improve the community's educational opportunities and healthcare offerings.

Sault United also wants to show the students what the community really has to offer.

The group came to be after a study, paid for by the Michigan Municipal League, pointed out some new goals to shoot for.
