Lafayette is great for a very specific subset of people. Engineers and most natural science majors seem to excel here, while humanities and social science majors appear to be bored. The academics and the faculty are the best in their field and are very approachable and helpful. In terms of extracurriculars, there is A LOT to choose from, but it often feels clique-y and hierarchical. The student government lately has been difficult to work with, as I've heard from the president's of a few clubs. The campus is beautiful there are a few cool places in the surrounding area to see. Easton can be very sketchy, though. In terms of the social scene, it's pretty boring. Although greek life is small, percentage wise, that is because an old President of the school banned a lot of fraternities and sororities. Frat life dominates the social scene for freshman. A lot of sports teams throw parties, but if you aren't on the team, you can't go. Hence, partying is VERY limited and weekends can get redundant and boring.
