    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    LAFAYETTE COLLEGE - AMAZING SCHOOL!

    I fell in love with the campus. It was a small school where it seemed like professors and students both worked hard. People were friendly and welcoming. It was a wonderful atmosphere. I also wanted to attend a small school.


    Course Curriculum - 

    A good curriculum but does not overwhelm the student with a ton of required classes. At the time it was one math class, two lab sciences, freshman seminar, sophomore seminar, two semesters of language or related cultural class, English 101.
