Several offices on campus encourage parents to become involved in the Lafayette experience by volunteering their time or expertise. Opportunities range from a one-time activity to involvement throughout the year.

Communications Committee

Members review a different parent publication or program each year and meet once at the beginning of the spring semester. Members also review the Parent web site each year. Contact the Parent Relations Office by e-mail at or call (610) 330-5048.

Family Weekend Committee

Members attend and evaluate Family Weekend in the fall and meet once at the beginning of the spring semester to review the program and offer recommendations to the student planning committee. Several parents also volunteer to assist with activities during the weekend. Contact the Parent Relations Office by e-mail at or call (610) 330-5048. The Communications and Family Weekend Committees both meet on the first day of spring semester classes for a luncheon and annual meeting. Parents should only volunteer for one of these committees.

Parent Career Ambassadors

Members work with Career Services by offering internships or externships at their place of work, providing individual career information, or encouraging their business to send employment recruiters to campus. Contact Career Services by e-mail at or call (610) 330-5115.

Parent Partners in Admissions (PPA)

Members of PPA assist by being a resource to answer questions from parents of prospective students. Once you have gone through the process and are familiar with Lafayette, you can share what you have learned. Some parents also host receptions for accepted students in their area. Contact Admissions by e-mail at or call (610) 330-5100.

Parents Fund Volunteers

Parents Fund Volunteers assist the Parents Fund by contacting other parents for financial support by calling from home, from a regional phonathon in your area or on campus. Contact Parents Fund by e-mail at or call (610) 330-5047.
