Unfortunately, family emergencies and tragedies may happen while your student is at Lafayette. Should an occasion arise whereby a student must be notified about a death or emergency in the immediate family, we ask that you please not contact the student directly.

Instead, please call the office of the Dean of the College so that your student can be notified in such a way that support systems are in place, should they be needed.

The Office of Religious Life and the Chaplain’s staff are also available for support in times of crisis.
