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.

Seasonal Student Issues for May

There's a seasonal ebb and flow when it comes to student issues. Here are a few things your student may be experiencing this month:

  • Anxiety and tension due to realizations that the year is ending and final exams are about to occur
  • Senior panic about jobs, finances, etc.
  • First-year students are feeling somewhat confident because they feel that they have made it through the first year (almost!)
  • Good feelings are evident as summer is near
  • Lots of cramming, studying and wrapping things up academically
  • End-of-the-year socialization
  • Packing and checking out
  • Saying goodbye to important people and putting closure on the year
