Lafayette students are doers. They are fearless. Engaged academically and socially, they are equipped to make a difference on campus and in the local and global community.

What To Think About Now

Build Relationships

Make meaningful connections with your teachers. Not only will they be people to advocate on your behalf in recommendation letters years down the road, but much more importantly, strong relationships with them will greatly enhance your ability to learn and grow as a student.

Get involved! You have a great deal of time left to try new extra and co-curricular activities—time that many seniors wish they still had available.

Plot Your Course

Think about YOU. What are your goals? What academic and co-curricular opportunities most excite you? What are you looking for in your college home? Asking yourself these questions can be a thoughtful and deliberate exercise you engage in regularly throughout your junior year.

Plan Visits
Research visit options at schools that interest you. When geography and finances limit your ability to visit campuses, explore the opportunities to connect with those institutions through your school, social media, and by reaching out to admissions counselors.

If, and only if, you have identified a top-choice institution, find out about early decision options.
