Students say Lafayette is a special place because of the breadth of the curriculum, encompassing the arts and humanities, social and natural sciences, and engineering. It gives Lafayette a “university feel” in an environment dedicated to the undergraduate. Professors work with students from vastly different disciplines on a regular basis to solve real problems. This is the hallmark of a Lafayette liberal arts education.
