What Students Are Saying

4.10 Average Rating
Now this is a very subjective category to talk about, but I believe that Lafayette isn't too challenging primarily because it is small and professors will usually have time to help you out when you need it. Obviously quantum mechanics will be harder than intro to philosophy but in the end it will come down to personal strength and weaknesses, and like I said there will always be people willing to help and always free of charge. Lafayette sponsors many tutoring programs for all areas of study, so you don't have to panic that much because you will always be in capable hands of our trained tutors.
Peter from Swan Lake, NY
It is very challenging, but definitely manageable. There is a lot of coursework, but so far I have not had too much trouble.
AMG from VA
We only take four courses a semester. Curriculum is challenging but it is manageable. Professors are more than willing to help and we have an excellent tutoring system.
Clare from NJ
You'll be challenged to the point where you'll walk out of the campus after graduation and the world won't seem as intimidating.
C from Easton, PA
Students will figure out quickly that just getting by with putting in very little effort will not cut it. While the classes are not impossible, they do require full student engagement and a true desire to succeed in the class.
