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.

I am a graduate of The University of Michigan.  I was raised in Sault Sainte Marie (SSM), Michigan, home to Lake Superior State University.  I lived in Ann Arbor, MI for several years, and returned to SSM in 1994.  I have worked in higher education for nearly 20 years.  Prior to joining the Admissions team at LSSU, I worked in the Financial Aid Office for seven years.

My greatest passion is helping people take positive steps in the right direction to lead them to a brighter future.  I feel very strongly that education is a fundamental element of this goal.   

The features of LSSU that I feel are of tremendous value is our small size and our desire to take a personal approach to educating students.  Not only are the class sizes small so that students can feel comfortable asking questions and seeking help, but our professors are truly dedicated to teaching.  They are highly accessible to students, supplying one-on-one assistance when needed. 

It is my pleasure to assist students and parents in the admission process.  I thoroughly enjoy helping students identify areas of interest and a pathway to pursue their goals.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
