Before you turn in a project or take an exam, take a few minutes and unwind with the meditation room located in the first floor sunroom in Becht Hall. This relaxing space is one of several lounges in Becht where you can take a break.
Career Services in 419 Becht Hall helps you prepare for your future. Build a resume, participate
in a mock interview and visit job fairs to help you succeed. Career Services has events
and tips to help you in every stage of the job search.
Another important service is campus Counseling Services in 256 Becht Hall. Trained counselors are there to help you deal with life's issues and concerns.
You'll want to make use of the state-of-the-art university libraries for researching ideas and to use as a quiet place to study.
The Clarion University Store, located along Suites on Main South along U.S. Route 322, has all of your Clarion University merchandise and textbooks.
Finally, don't forget to make time for fun – an important part of the college experience. There are more than 135 campus organizations with which you can get involved, a campus movie theater, as well as downtown shops and restaurants.
This year's Autumn Leaf Festival is scheduled from Sept. 29 through Oct. 7. This nine-day event coincides with our homecoming activities and features some university-sponsored cultural events throughout the week.
Take advantage of the university's close proximity to hiking trails such as the North Country Trail along U.S. Route 322 or the many trails in Cook Forest where one can go cross country skiing or hiking along freshly fallen snow when the weather cools down.
Enjoy your fall semester as a Courageous. Confident. Golden Eagle.
