Members of the Lafayette community cheered on the Leopards at multiple events throughout the week as they prepared for the 158th Rivalry game against the Lehigh Mountain Hawks
The Lafayette-Lehigh football rivalry is the most-played collegiate football game in the U.S. This year marked the 158th occasion that the Lafayette Leopards competed against “that other team.” As the Lafayette community rallied during Rivalry Week, there were many events for faculty, staff, and students to celebrate all things Lafayette. After all, a leopard really is more fierce than a hawk and who doesn’t like the color maroon?
Student-athletes “Spotted” Volunteering in the Community
Lafayette student-athletes visited two area organizations on Nov. 13: Gracedale Nursing Home and the Children’s Home of Easton. Students created posters and art in preparation for Antibiotic Awareness Week with the residents of Gracedale. Residents at the Children’s Home of Easton enjoyed playing basketball, football, and pool with Lafayette’s student-athletes. There were smiles all around as the children received Lafayette-branded receiver’s gloves and shirts. View photos from the Gracedale visit.
Lighting of Pardee
Rivalry Week kicked off with the lighting of Pardee Hall in maroon and white lights. Members of the football team were on hand to hand out hot cocoa to attendees.
A great deal of creativity was displayed as students came together in Farinon College Center from 6 to 9 p.m. to create Rivalry-themed banners. With the assistance of facilities, banners were displayed on campus on Tuesday, Nov. 15. View photos from the event.
