A college large enough to give you unique opportunities across the arts, sciences and engineering. This is Lafayette. Founded: In March 1826, the citizens of Easton received a charter signed by the governor of Pennsylvania establishing Lafayette College. The vision: to teach the habits and subjects of a disciplined mind, the skills to conduct careful research and come to considered conclusions, and the desire and ability to lead a purposeful life.

We offer undergraduate programs on a coeducational, residential campus rich in history and beauty.
