Why Lafayette?
I was drawn to Lafayette because of the prestigious academics, beautiful campus, friendly students and faculty that continued to impress me with each visit. Lafayette presents a magnitude of opportunities to its students-not only with its liberal arts core combined with an intensive math and science curriculum in the Engineering degrees, but also with its Division I athletics. I am looking forward to spending the next four years at Lafayette to grow as both a scholar and a person.
