Lafayette is much more than a college. We are an educational connected community – diverse, welcoming and active. Almost all students live on campus, where they enjoy an amazing array of social, cultural, artistic, and athletic activities.

Life at Lafayette

Form  personal connections, explore individual interests, develop leadership skills, and engage with a community that begins on campus and extends far past it. Make new friends, enjoy transformative experiences, and challenge yourself in an environment built on trust, respect, and opportunity.
