Clayton State Day at the Capitol is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff and alumni to experience the legislative process, to thank their representatives and senators for their support of higher education, and to share experiences with those legislators on issues of mutual concern.
Students can ride a bus to the event. A tour of the capitol, discussion on political engagement, and an opportunity to see Clayton State honored by the Senate and House are just some of the activities available. Everyone will have an opportunity to meet with legislators and meet alumni who work in state government.
