In the context of the current circumstances when our country is facing the shock and mourning involving the horrific events in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Somerset County, Pa., Lafayette has cancelled or postponed all intercollegiate athletic events in which it was scheduled to participate through Sunday, Sept. 16.

This is the right decision for Lafayette to make out of respect, sympathy, and support for members of our community, including our student athletes. It is an appropriate way for us to show our respect for those throughout the nation who are so tragically affected by this week’s unprecedented events.

Lafayette has chosen to continue to hold classes because we believe this is an appropriate forum for discussion as this national tragedy evolves. We held a campus vigil on Tuesday evening and expect to hold forums on campus to help students, faculty, and staff deal with these terrible events. We are fully supportive of our nation’s leaders as they seek to deal with the aftermath of the tragedy that has occurred.

Those who hold tickets to Lafayette intercollegiate events affected by this decision should hold onto those tickets and await further information regarding refunds or exchanges involving rescheduling or cancellations.
