Freshman Preview Day

Freshman Preview Day is your one-stop-shop to learn all things Clayton State. During the event, you will get a chance to meet faculty, staff, current students, and your future classmates. Learn about the admissions and financial aid process. Talk to faculty and advisors about degree programs. And tour our freshman residence, Laker Hall.

COVID-19 Precautions: Everyone’s health and safety are of the highest priority while on campus at Clayton State. Our Open House group size has been reduced to account for proper social distance measures. Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout campus. We encourage visitors to bring their own masks/face coverings, as these are required on Clayton State’s campus. We will continue to do our best to present all the information in alternate ways and maintain the comfort of all.
