ELONNE: I chose Lafayette because it is a school where I can pursue a diverse range of interests. From engineering to Spanish, I can take fascinating courses and foster my passion for the arts through many programs. Also, I was overwhelmed by kindness when I first stepped on campus, and that definitely drove my decision to come to Lafayette.
QWIN: Lafayette stood out to me as soon as I stepped on campus for a college tour. All the people I met that day were kind, fun, and interesting to talk to. I also loved that I could pursue engineering and the liberal arts at Laf. I knew right away that Lafayette was a place where I would be able to thrive for my four years of college.
Why Lafayette with your twin?
ELONNE: Lafayette was my twin sister’s first choice as well as mine. We are very close, and she has always been my greatest support. She constantly inspires me and challenges me to be my best self. Her compassion and humor are parts of my life that would be hard to live without. I am glad we chose to come to Lafayette together!
QWIN: Ellie and I are really close; she supports me in the hard times, celebrates with me in the good times, and makes me laugh every day. I knew I wanted to come to college with her, but our senior year we both made a pact that if we liked different schools we would go to college separately. After touring Lafayette, we knew it was the perfect choice for both of us, and we both applied Early Decision II.
