How do you describe a typical Lafayette student? Students come to Lafayette from all over the country and all over the world. Their backgrounds may be different, and their lived experiences vary. The richness of individual perspectives is fun, exciting, and palpable in our community. Yet, I love that our students have a lot in common. First and foremost, they have CHOSEN Lafayette and want to be part of our vibrant community. To me, typical Lafayette students are curious and open to learning and poised to embrace new experiences. They share common values in education and common goals in what they are hoping and imagining for their college experiences.
Why did you chose to be a part of the Lafayette community: I love the palpable energy on the Lafayette College campus! Students flourish in our supportive, open community, both inside and outside the classroom. New opportunities and ideas open eyes, hearts and minds during students’ time here. Lafayette students have transformative college experiences and reach the potential they strive for. Being part of this community is a privilege, and I enjoy being a small part of students’ lives here.

What activities do you enjoy? I’m a Southern girl who loves country cooking. I always have grits and corn meal at the ready for a bowl of shrimp and grits or a batch of cornbread and hushpuppies. If I’m not whipping up something in the kitchen, I’m likely hiking or reading a page-turner.
