A software engineer at Google, an NFL agent with MBK Sports, a Ph.D. candidate at Harvard, a business analyst for Deutschland Bank, a hardware development engineer at IBM, a Fulbright Scholar teaching English in Venezuela.

These are just a few examples of first jobs that members of the 181st Class will be doing after graduation. Students come to Lafayette to earn a degree in a field they feel passionate about. They leave with a wider view of the world, a multitude of alumni connections, and the second highest earning capacity for a graduate of a liberal arts college in the country.

Part of the character of Lafayette is a deep dedication to student-faculty mentorship. Our professors get to know our students on a professional and personal level, and they truly care about their success.

Six months after graduation, 89 percent of the members of the Class of 2015 were either employed full-time or continuing their education.

Reports in The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Payscale.com have ranked Lafayette as one of the top schools in the nation in highest return on investment for liberal arts graduates.
