Alum Success

Elaina Marinik

My education at Lake State taught me not only the basics of exercise science and health and wellness but prepared me for my future research career. I became involved in national organizations, improved my networking skills to create working relationships, and ended up with an amazing paid internship that turned into a 3-year research professional position at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA. Now in graduate school pursuing a doctorate degree at Virginia Tech, I rely on the knowledge I acquired at Lake State and put it to practice daily while discussing health-related topics in class or conducting obesity and inflammation research in our laboratory.

Specific information to help answer your remaining questions


Lake Superior State University is the smallest public university in the state of Michigan.

Our class environment is similar to what you’ll find at a private school. This means your professors will know your strengths and can offer advice on internships and research projects. It also means that we are one of the safest universities you will find.

The fact that we’re a public school makes LSSU a great educational value.
