Lafayette College Reviews
The professors here are amazing and really care about the success of their students. Lafayette is challenging, and A's must be earned. Collaboration is encouraged by most teachers, particularly in the science and engineering fields. Students graduate with jobs from big-time companies and get into amazing graduate schools. However, one of my biggest complaints about the school is the social scene. It feels as though white men dominate the social scene and the decisions made by the school. The school needs to change the way they handle situations regarding sexual violence, because there have been times where wealthy white boys seemed to have gotten off easy. Also, the privacy of the survivor reporting needs to be better protected. People often find out about when people file a report about these types of things, and often times survivors receive backlash and then become targets for bullying/rumors.
Lafayette is an amazing college! Their campus is beautiful and exactly what I'm looking for. Our tour guide came all the way from California to attend Lafayette and made me feel like I already belonged there.
Lafayette has a beautiful campus, friendly atmosphere, and small class sizes. The courses are rigorous and the professors are tough but fair. My only complaint is that some of the residence halls are outdated and could use some renovation. Also very expensive, but they are pretty good about giving out scholarships to those who need them.
