Community
Devils Lake is a city with pride in the past
and faith in the future. Besides Lake Region
State College, the region boasts an excellent
public school system, the North Dakota
School for the Deaf, Four Winds Community
School and Cankdeska Cikana Community
College at Fort Totten.
Devils Lake is rich in historic and scenic
sights such as Sully’s Hill Wildlife Refuge,
Fort Totten State Historic Site and Grahams
Island State Park.
Devils Lake is also rich in the fine quality of
its people who work hard to provide well-
rounded cultural, religious, educational and
four-season recreational opportunities.
Devils Lake derives its name from the Native
American name Miniwaukan. Early explorers
incorrectly translated the word to mean
“Bad Spirit”. Bolstered by the many legends
of drowned warriors and lake monsters,
the name evolved into Devils Lake. Devils
Lake is the largest natural body of water in
North Dakota covering more than 100,000
acres and containing hundreds of miles of
shoreline. This very fertile prairie lake grows
large numbers of walleye, northern pike,
white bass and it has earned the reputation
of being the “Perch Capital of the World”. In
the fall, hundreds of thousands of waterfowl
migrate through the area and give both local
and visiting hunters outstanding hunting
opportunities.
There is always plenty to see and do in
Devils Lake and the entire Lake Region---the
opportunities in Devils Lake are “As Endless

students and other interested persons
with information about the institutions.
Announcements contained in such printed
or electronic material are subject to change
without notice, and may not be regarded

Complaints and Grievances -
When
safety is not an issue, students having an
informal complaint or formal grievance
of alleged improper, unfair, arbitrary or
discriminatory treatment should first discuss
the grievance with the college official who
was involved in the disputed action. If
the grievance is not resolved, on-campus
adjudication is conducted through the
Director of Student Services. Reference
Section 800.31 of the Lake Region State
College Policy and Procedure Manual for full
policy.
Email -
Lake Region State College,
recognizing the growing need for timely,
efficient and consistent communication
with students, has established email as
an official means of communication with
students. Students are expected to check
their official LRSC email on a frequent and
consistent basis.
When students forward email from
that account to another account, vital
information may not be conveyed.
Unopened email or having email
redirected does not relieve a student
