Why not you? Why not here? Why not now?
At Lafayette College, we challenge our students to move beyond the familiar, the comfortable, the easy. We dare them to become thinkers and leaders themselves. We offer them opportunities to jump into the thick of things, to take risks, to care deeply.
Downtown Easton is also home to many restaurants, art galleries, and antique shops. It hosts concerts, plays, musicals, stand-up comics, and dance performances. Learn about things to do in Easton.
More than two centuries ago, a 19-year-old left home to follow a dream. He came to a new place far away, remade himself as a student and scholar and became a leader and a hero. His lifelong philosophy was so important to him he had its Latin translation emblazoned on his family crest. “Cur Non.” Today, at the college that bears his name, we embrace that philosophy daily.
