    I won't lie - Lafayette is kind of expensive, but admissions is very generous with financial aid and will try to help you as much as possible. The academics here are nationally ranked and are truly worth it, the campus activities are always fun and Lafayette is very involved with the city of Easton and will coordinate events there for our entertainment. This is a personal college more than a private one because everybody will get to know everyone else and unbreakable bonds are sure to come from this environment with your peers and professors alike, and so overall I think it is worth much more than what it costs to go here.

    Lafayette is extremely expensive but has a very high career placement rate and graduate school acceptance rate so it all balances out in the end.

    It is a pretty steep price tag, however after graduation, you will find it an extremely worthy investment.

    Lafayette College provides a great education, one which prepares students for a career right out of college, or further schooling.
