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.

Honors Program

Current Students: How to Apply

Students with the following GPAs are encouraged to apply for the Honors Program:

  • Freshmen: 3.3 or above
  • Sophomores: 3.4 or above
  • Juniors: 3.5 or above

The reasoning behind the sliding scale GPAs for current students is that those who are closer to graduation will have less opportunity, statistically, to increase their GPAs to the 3.5 requirement for the honors degree. In addition, students closer to graduation will have less opportunity to fit in the 21 honors credits necessary for the honors degree. Any interested student close to the GPA parameters should make an appointment with the Honors Director to tailor a plan. Students entering later than freshman year have had great success in the program.

Note: please allow up to 4 weeks for a decision from the Honors Council. If you would like an expedited review, please petition the Honors Director.

"Not only is LSSU close and convenient to my home in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, but the atmosphere is very welcoming. All of the staff and students seem to be really open, and the teacher-to-student ratio is very personal, unlike larger universities." [ more ]
