Experience Lafayette College (XLC)

If you have already decided to enroll, we welcome you to become more familiar with the Lafayette environment, and help us convince your peers to make the same great decision!

You’ll have the chance to tour the campus, visit several residence halls, learn about academic opportunities, and attend a student-led discussion about undergraduate life. Other highlights include a presentation on our innovative Gateway career planning program, a “Financing Your Education” session, a deans’ panel on student life, and a panel of Lafayette parents. Professors will conduct sample classes or department open houses to help you learn more about humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and engineering at Lafayette.

Talk with current students from a wide variety of organizations during lunch. They’ll tell you about the incredibly diverse opportunities our students have in extra- and co-curricular life.
