"My experience at Lake Superior State University is one of the best of my life. Not only did the education I received prepare me immensely for the work world, I made friendships and connections that are sure to last me a lifetime. LSSU is the perfect collegiate experience: exceptional educators, a welcoming community and the beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula."

"LSSU’s Athletic Training program is a great program. Class sizes are small, allowing more one-on-one time with the professors, athletic trainers, and athletes. Students are able to observe and interact with the athletic trainers and athletes at an early stage in the AT program. In LSSU’s AT program, students are able to observe and interact in some great settings: all sports at LSSU, LSSU’s Health Care Center, orthopedic surgeon’s offices, and a physical therapy setting. Senior year rotations allow students to perform many of the tasks that ATC’s are able to carry out. If you’re looking for a top notch Athletic Training program, come to LSSU where everyone knows you!"

--Kara Hurban ATC

"I attended the Sports Medicine program from 1998-2002. In that time I learned a tremendous amount of information from injury prevention to on the field training. This allowed me to pass my national certification boards and further my education. My acceptance into physical therapy school was because of my undergraduate education. I was ahead of the curve when it came to anatomy, exercise prescription, modalities, etc. Every clinical rotation in physical therapy noticed that I had experience in the field when compared to students prior. Personally, I don’t think I would have had the success or acceptance into the Doctorate in Physical Therapy program without the education received at LSSU. Furthermore, my pay scale was increased because of my dual degree and ability to start rehabilitation programs without assistance. The importance of the Sports Medicine program at LSSU allows students to further their education and accomplish goals that no other program can provide. "
