What Students Are Saying

4.10 Average Rating
You get MORE for what you pay for: A driven atmosphere, Professors who care and WANT you to succeed, and a great opportunity.
C from Easton, PA
It has a very great atmosphere with a lot of great people you can relax with or study with; at Lafayette there are a lot of intelligent people who are completely willing to help. In addition to the people, the professors are truly amazing because they take the time to get to know you personally and will try their best to help you, and they will even offer research since Lafayette has the resources of a large university in a much smaller, friendlier environment. Not only does Lafayette have a beautiful campus, everything is within ten minute walking distance meaning your friends are never far away.
