Lafayette will celebrate the inauguration of Nicole Farmer Hurd through a series of events beginning with Family Weekend on Sept. 24 and ending with the Homecoming football game on Oct. 2. Throughout the week, there will be opportunities for alumni, students, faculty, staff, and the greater Easton and Lehigh Valley communities to engage, learn, and celebrate this historic event.
We welcome our students’ families back to College Hill for activities.
See the listing of events.
Music will fill the air on College Hill! Take a stroll and listen to an eclectic mix of local musicians who will play on the porches of homes. Lafayette’s McKelvey House and the Cattell/High Street Plaza will showcase student and community performances as well.
