Admissions Visits

Visit during one of our several open house programs When new students arrive on Lafayette’s campus, 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. 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 in the fall to one of our open house programs.
