Why Lafayette?
When searching for the right fit, I was looking for a few key components. I plan to pursue medicine, so it was important for me to find an institution with rigorous academics, but one that would also allow me to continue my soccer career at the next level. Having a close working relationship with my professors and peers will be essential to balance both school and soccer; Lafayette’s size will provide this. I can’t wait to be a part of the Leopard family!
