Overall Experience: I have learned a great deal here and love it so much

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Although I applied to transfer as a freshman, looking back on my four years I have learned so much at Lafayette. Wonderful education and a wonderful society to be a part of

4 College Senior

Greek Life: To go out a decent amount you have to be involved in greek life or sports.

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off campus, it is not necessary.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: For Easton Pa, there are great spots. Mesa, Sette Luna, 3rd on Ferry, and Maxims are wonderful restaurants

4 College Senior

Administration: Ive never had any issues. They seem to dislike greek life but overall just want to help the students

College Senior

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid and cannot speak on the topic

5 College Senior

Party Scene: If you put yourself out there, it really is a blast. Campus is the best for lowerclassmen. Milos is fun especially on wednesdays for karaoke. CHT is sometimes happening!

4 College Senior

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Plenty of delicious choices. If you're willing to make the trip to Downtown Bethlehem, you can find so many delicious and cool dining options.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Public safety can't hang with all the parking tickets.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Decent money, but it's still really expensive. But it's a great value I suppose.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I have never attended any parties at Lafayette. But from what I have heard, a lot of drunken madness, sloppy chicks, and creepy dudes.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Okay so there is never any peanut butter and that really pisses me off. Plus the food choices are so inconsistent. I really wish they offered the roasted veggie wrap every day because it's seriously delicious. The bagels are stale and the Kind bars are expired, which also pisses me off because I pay mad dollars to go to this school and I deserve gourmet food.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms aren't the cleanest, especially after big event weekends. They can get really loud too, which is annoying for those who wish to study in their room instead of at the library. In my personal experience, the RA really didn't enforce the rules at all. In fact, it was her and her friends that caused a lot of the disturbances.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's hard to give a fair rating about off-campus housing since I live on campus and everyone I spend time with lives on campus. I can see the attraction to get off-campus as, primarily, one of privacy. Roommates have a funny habit of wanting the lights on when I want to sleep and sleeping when I want the lights on. Still, I better learn to drive before I get a place that is not within walking distance of my classes and food.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I have only ventured out a little due to transportation and weather issues. It's actually difficult for me to get around when I want to and be sure I can get back in time when I need to. The meals I've had have been ok but, so far, I don't think there is anyplace I plan to come back to after I graduate.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I understand that parking is at a premium and preference is given to upperclassmen but I that operates as a reward for returning to this school year after year and is not related to need or fairness. School transportation sounds good on paper but it actually not so easy to use and often unavailable when needed for those of us who live very far away and remain on campus during breaks.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My family had special circumstances that adversely affected their ability to pay, particularly in the future, and no consideration was given to these circumstances at all. Now that we submitted the FAFSA for next year, a more accurate picture may contribute to at least a little aid.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It seems like there is nothing happening on campus when I have the opportunity to take advantage of a little break. It's like my friends have exams when I am free and I have exams when they are free. By the bloody end arrives, I just want to go home.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is a fair amount of variety, so it seems like it would be easy to put together a balanced vegan program, but it is a lot harder that it would seem. I can understand that the plans want tor reduce waste by prohibiting taking food out, but anyone who has ever gone to college will tell you that some days you are not hungry on schedule or don't have enough time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I wish the food options were explained better to me when I was matriculating. I thought that the anywhere/anytime options would be flexible and offer the best fit, but I was wrong. For my second semester selection, I chose more wisely.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Lafayette is a great school with a great reputation. I know I am getting one of the best possible educations out there at Lafayette and the professors are always there to help me out when I need them.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It's a small school, so there aren't as many options as schools with 20,000+ undergrads, but I think for its size it definitely has a ton to offer and each student will receive and excellent and worthy education in the process.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Having a productive college experience on Lafayette's campus means that the students have to learn to get involved. Starting from the first week of class freshman year through the last days of Senior Week, Lafayette students have to learn to balance their academics with their social lives, jobs, and extracurricular activities. Nothing quite comes easy—almost everyone has to start from scratch, find a niche, build up a circle of friends, and pick and choose courses until they decide on a major. But the experience is wildly rewarding. While on campus, students get the opportunity to foster meaningful relationships with a plethora of people. Friends and floormates, co-workers and team members, professors and administrative staff—there are many connections to be made and sustained, many moments to cherish. 

While in school, Lafayette students might complain about the workload. The pressure to maintain grades while still being active in different clubs, sports teams, and/or organizations can be daunting at times. There are expectations to be met. Obstacles can come in the form of a challenging curriculum, failing relationships, and demanding professors. In spite of these challenges—or maybe because of them—Lafayette students learn to be well-adjusted, well-spoken, savvy young men and women by the time they graduate. Students leave campus knowing that they picked a place that challenged them intellectually and shaped them socially. At their five-year, 20-year, or 50-year reunion parties, Lafayette students will find familiar faces and relish memories.
