Why Lafayette?
I have chosen Lafayette as I believe that the four years I will spend there will be a life changing experience. Lafayette is renowned both academically and athletically, allowing me to push myself both mentally and physically. As I will be moving to another country, I wanted a college that was small enough to help me integrate into American life & make great friends, but also had the academic qualities to help me develop and achieve my ambitions and goals as well as opening doors for my future career. Oh and I can neither confirm, nor deny the rumour that the fact that the Lafayette Head Coach is a Manchester United fan, like myself, had anything to do with my decision!
