Why Lafayette?: I chose Lafayette College for its ability to provide a balance of competitive Division 1 athletics and rigorous academics. While the beautiful campus and close community atmosphere attracted me to Lafayette, it was the history and reputation for excellence that ultimately confirmed my selection. I am very excited to begin the challenge of my next four years at Lafayette.
