Orientation Highlights

Club and Organization Activities Fair, Monday August 30th, 7pm Cheel Arena

There are many opportunities for you to engage in clubs and organizations during your time at Clarkson. Throughout Orientation, you'll get a little taste of all the opportunities Clarkson has for you to get involved as several clubs and organizations will be hosting events for you to participate in that we will share with you upon arrival. We are also hosting a Club and Organization Activities Fair, which will be completely in Cheel Arena on the first day of classes. This is your chance to meet several clubs and organizations the first week of being at Clarkson, and learn where you can get involved right away with others that have similar interests as you. To get a sneak peek of our clubs and organizations, log in to Knight Life with your Clarkson credentials at Knightlife.clarkson.edu.
