Lafayette College Top Questions

The "preps" and the "jocks." A large portion of the student body does come from upper-middle class Mid-Atlantic/New England areas, and there is a frequent occurrence of boat shoes and Longchamp purses, but you'll also find the students who work 3 campus jobs and shop for clothes at Target and the students who never seem to leave the library or the Acopian Engineering Center because they're constantly studying.

That most students are upper class, white, heterosexual, etc.


Too preppy, rich, white
