Lafayette College Reviews
The Lafayette Community is empathetic and reinforces the endeavors of all of its members. The college has plenty of activities on campus to join with and the resources for undergraduates to understand their success in the future. (Based on my visit)
I am a freshman at Lafayette and it is so much fun I have made such amazing friends and i am so glad i went here!
Lafayette is the best decision I ever made. The professors are incredible. The friendships I fostered there with fellow students, and with professors and staff will last for a lifetime. If you take initiative you can do absolutely anything. You will learn so much more than what you learn in the classroom (which is plenty!), you will learn how to care about other people. You will grow in ways you can't even comprehend. And, if you're at all like me, you will find it impossible to say goodbye when you graduate, and counting down the days until you can visit again.
The Lafayette Community is compassionate and supports the endeavors of all of its members. The institution has plenty of organizations on campus to get involved with and the resources for undergraduates to realize their future success.
Lafayette is amazing. Beautiful campus, mostly great professors, social scene is great for sophomores and up, dorms are nice.
If you get good grades in a marketable major, you will be making large amounts of money - Lafayette grads are regularly hired by prestigious companies like Google, Goldman Sachs, Deloitte, Bloomberg, and Amazon.
Lafayette College is a small community with a small town atmosphere. The Easton community is involved with the students, and enjoys the students. Professors are hands-on and work closely with the students to help everyone succeed.
The Lafayette campus is really beautiful and I loved it as soon as I saw it. Everyone is really nice and welcoming and the professors are so easy to contact.
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 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.
Though I have not spent very much time at Lafayette, I am already very excited to be spending my next four years here. The opportunities that I have available to me are plenty and bountiful, and the duality of engineering and liberal arts is both unique and effective. I've found my time so far on the Hill to be both rewarding and enjoyable.
Lafayette is a really good school with fantastic academics, but to be completely honest, I've found it to be mind-numbingly boring here.
The environment created by the space, professors, resources, and much more allows students to find a place to feel comfortable and welcomed.
Love this college. Wide variety of activities, terrific classes, friendly people - who could complain?
With Lafayette being a liberal arts college, you get what you pay for.
