Favorite Quote: "Life's tough. Get a helmet." Why I Chose Lafayette:I came to Lafayette because I was looking for a smaller school that was not too far from home. I knew Lafayette had a great engineering program and that's what I was thinking of doing. Also, I wanted to play softball and I knew if I went here I would get that opportunity.
