What do students do for fun at Northeast State? 


Although academic learning is our primary focus, we believe a special knowledge is gained from having fun and good friends.  Because of Northeast State's friendly atmosphere, you will experience camaraderie with faculty and students.  Former students often comment that the college's "family" atmosphere is what they missed most after departing to a larger four-year university or entering the workplace. 

At Northeast State, we're committed to a well-rounded college experience for each student.  Our selection of clubs and organizations offers you the chance to make friends and get involved in interesting and meaningful activities. We have more than 20 student groups that meet regularly. Some are honor and professional organizations, including Alpha Sigma Lambda, Phi Theta Kappa, the Association for Computing Machinery, and the Student Tennessee Education Association. Others relate to the specific interests of students, such as community service. If you enjoy working for a cause, we have service organizations too, or you can join with other students to create a club of your own. 

Interested in developing your leadership skills?  The Council for Leadership, Advocacy, and Student Success (C.L.A.S.S.) and the Northeast State Student Navigators provide numerous opportunities to represent the student body and to network with state and local leaders. Every semester, your campus calendar will be filled with chances to mix and mingle.  Don't miss our annual Fall Finale and Spring Fling, where fun games and cookouts are the order of the day.  You'll also get topnotch entertainment and cultural enrichment through Northeast State's ongoing cultural activities and the Theatre Program's schedule of plays.  Workshops, seminars, and lectures on a variety of topics are sponsored each semester to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and the world in which we live.

Come join the fun!
