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.

September 11th

Five Years Later

In the midst of this exciting month comes the five-year anniversary of 9/11. Many campuses will be commemorating this occasion, which is the most major world event for today's traditional-aged students.

Don't hesitate to discuss 9/11 with your student. He many want to process through how he's feeling about the state of the world now, especially in light of August's foiled plot to compromise flights from the United Kingdom to the U.S. She may want to think back to that day in 2001 and how it impacted her or to talk about what's happening on campus surrounding 9/11 memorials.

Discussing 9/11 in the context of thoughts and emotions is yet another way to connect with your student on his path to adulthood.

"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful."
