Admissions Visits

Visit during one of our several open house programs When new students arrive on Lafayette’s campus in the fall, they’re taken aback by the beauty of their surroundings and the abundance of activities. Lafayette’s academic, social, cultural, and athletic facilities rival those found at larger universities and top-notch scholars are your teachers. It’s the best of both worlds. Spend some time with us. Schedule a visit with an interview, tour, and group information session. Sit in on a class or meet with a professor or coach. Or come for the day to one of our several open house programs. (Fall open houses have concluded; check back for information about upcoming programs.)

Also, take advantage of sessions that focus on the college admissions process. You’ll meet students as well as members of the admissions staff during this jam-packed day. The first session is scheduled for 9 a.m. with registration opening at 8:15 a.m. We hope to see you April 26.
