Alum Success

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.

“Students have a wide variety of opportunities available during their academic career. One of the favorites, for students, staff and faculty, occurs during Exercise Prescription class, when students are assigned to train a faculty or staff member for a semester. The volunteer list is always full and students are quick to jump at the chance to “turn the tables” on the staff and faculty. Students also do a great job learning proper Exercise testing procedures in the Exercise Science laboratory. They treat the laboratory as a second home, meeting to do homework, testing, or to hang out. It is rare to find the room empty, and that is good, as it shows how they are assimilating into their future professional environment.”
