Welcome back Lakers!

As you begin your academic year, here’s a list of the Top 10 Essentials to set your year up for success.


Get Involved

Be part of the college experience and help create the Laker Nation community! Get involved with one (or more!) of the many different clubs and organizations at Clayton State! Check them all out at the Student Involvement Fair on Thursday, Aug. 17 at the Student Activities Center.


Stay Connected

Follow all that’s happening at Clayton State at our Newsroom and social media channels—Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and our new Snapchat channel. Never miss an event by subscribing to our master calendar and check out important announcements at Inside Clayton State!


Tag Your Car

Don’t forget to head over to Clayton State’s Public Safety office for your parking decal.


Get Your Gear

Is it time for a new Clayton State shirt? Do you have your books? Head over to the Loch Shop to stock up on notebooks, pens pencils and all the digital wares you need to make reaching your dreams a cinch.


Stay on Track

Schedule key meetings and know important deadlines. A chat with your academic advisor will ensure you’re on track to graduate. Also, mark your calendar with your class schedule and important deadlines such as tuition payment, registration and add/drop. Regular progress checks will help put you in closer reach to that graduation tassel!


Get Active

A healthy Laker is a happy Laker! Our Recreation and Wellness offers club sports, outdoor adventures and a state-of-the-art activity center. So if yoga, Zumba, rock climbing, horseback riding or whitewater rafting gets your adrenaline going, check out the full lineup of activities.


Be Career Savvy

Whether you are a senior quickly approaching the reality of job hunting, or a sophomore ready for an internship, it is never too early to meet with our Office of Career Services. It’s time to perfect that resume, find a mentor or practice your interview skills! Also, be sure to attend the Part-time Job Fair on Tuesday, August 15.


Dine Green and Save Money

Check out the Lakeside Dining Hall To-Go Program to make eating lunch a breeze. The one-time cost gives you a reusable container to reduce waste and save money! Also, save cash by using dining dollars so you can save 8% sales tax on the purchase of certain food locations on campus.


Power Up

The Clayton State University HUB is made up of a team of dedicated staff who can help you navigate the ins and outs of digital technology.
