Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

You might get distracted by the natural beauty of the campus. The stately old buildings, the glass-and-chrome facades of the newer ones, the gently rolling hillocks and the sea of autumn leaves that blanket the sidewalk -- you might think you're walking into a glossy brochure, but this is everyday life for the Lafayette student. You'll also find small classes and vivacious students, engaging professors and fun peers who can toss a Frisbee one minute and get down to CHEM 204 in another. You'll find intensely intellectual conversations in the middle of Upper Farinon dining hall, and doodles on the desks of the engineering lecture hall. You'll find all kinds, and you'll fit in anyway.


The Lafayette campus is one of the nicest I have ever seen. It is located on a hill on top of Easton, PA, so the campus is a bit removed from the city life, but it isn't too far away. There are a handful of local restaurants on the hill that are great to eat at, but there are also plenty of options on campus. My favorite time on campus is fall, when the leaves change colors and the temperature is just right!
