Reasons to attend and to not attend Lafayette College

To Attend

  • “The campus is beautiful. Being able to look outside and it looks beautiful, even on the most disgusting day, really impacts the way you feel about your day. That’s a frivolous detail, but I think it impacts you a lot because if you feel bad and you go outside and it looks bad, it impacts how you feel.”
  • “Lafayette spends a lot of money on its students, whether it’s keeping us occupied on the weekends, organizing events, or providing great resources like our counseling center.”
  • “You’re in between Philadelphia and New York City and tickets are relatively cheap. You have a nice balance of escaping Easton or hanging out in your dorm.”
  • “It’s a small campus so you’re going to know everybody and everybody is going to know you in your classroom.”
  • “The smaller size of the school allows you to take advantage of multiple opportunities that you may not get out of larger institutions.”
  • “The sense of community. Once you find who those people are, they end up being very beneficial in helping you enjoy your time more as a student.”

To Not Attend

  • “If you don’t want a small school experience. If you want to [be anonymous], don’t come here because it’s really easy to meet people and it’s a tight-knit community.”
  • “95% of the professors are great, but I can think of four or five who are known to be problematic in some other way. They create a culture where students don’t want to succeed in their class.”
  • “They tend to really focus on STEM majors. There’s a lot of resources geared towards them.”
  • “If you identify a certain way, [there may not be a strong community for you] because it’s a small school.”
