What's the most important thing you learned at Lafayette?
I’m from a small town where virtually everyone has the same cultural background. Lafayette gave me the opportunity to get to know people with diverse cultures and experiences. I was able to learn about and appreciate others’ traditions, and how they view the world differently.
What one lesson or memory from Lafayette will remain with you for the rest of your life?
After class at RISC, I often walked along the Quad while heading to Skillman Library to study. I’ll always remember how bright, pristine, and colorful the Quad looks, especially in the early fall and spring. It’s always full of energy when the weather is nice.
What advice would you give to high school students who are considering Lafayette?
Lafayette advertises the small class sizes and personal relationships you develop within the departments, as opposed to large and impersonal lecture halls. That has held true in my experience, as I’ve gotten to know the professors and many of the students in the department. It’s important to consider whether you want that experience at a smaller college like Lafayette versus the experience you would have at a larger school.
