My experience thus far has been filled with great, approachable professors, involved students, and a great learning environment.

Lafayette is amazing. Small enough to get personalized attention from your professors, big enough to have a vibrant social scene and plenty of research opportunities. Additionally, Lafayette students strike the perfect balance of socially active and academically devoted. Wouldn't have done anything differently.
