    The campus is beautiful! Being right up the hill from downtown Easton, PA is great because you can easily walk to the center of town (the stairs my be old, and a work out, but not too hard). There are also shuttles that go into town and to nearby malls and shopping centers. Now that they finished the construction on Watson Courtyard and in front of Pardee Hall there are two new brick pathways that are really nice.

    The campus is full of very friendly people. It's no problem getting to know people and everyone seems down to earth. There seem to be plenty of student events to get involved with and the city has some cool stuff to check out.

    I love it! the campus is beautiful and it has a very strong happy atmosphere, very important when finals come around. Moreover, everyone is very accepting. For instance, I avoid parties like the plague, its just not who I am. At Lafayette party are a big deal, and if you are in to it you will be more than happy, nut everyone is more than understand that its just not for me and treats me like any other person and I them. its just a great place to be.

    I love EVERYTHING about Lafayette from gorgeous campus with it's small school charm, to the close knit student body, to the competitive D1 sports, to the vast amount of opportunities and connections offered. Don't let what others say fool you.. there is something fun going on every night, if you want there to be. You can ALWAYS find a reason to party here. :) Every night is what you make it out to be. This means that every night there are plenty of people who stay in and do work and also, plenty of people going out and having fun. I love Lafayette so much that I became a tour guide so that I could show my appreciate for the school by sharing its many benefits and by encouraging prospective students.
