Lafayette faculty appreciate the opportunity to review arts submissions from applicants. Here are the steps to submit your arts materials:
Students should only submit supplementary materials for art if they have expressed art to be one of their two academic interests on their application.
Students who would like to submit creative writing samples may submit up to eight double-spaced pages to be considered. Multiple genres and samples may be included within the eight pages; however, the entire submissions should not exceed the eight-page limit. Writing samples should be submitted in English.
Film and Media Studies (FAMS) encourages the integration of theory and praxis, critical study and creative production. We invite students interested in majoring in FAMS to submit for review:
Students are encouraged to submit recordings that illustrate their proficiency on a band or orchestral instrument, piano (classical or jazz), classical or jazz guitar, drum set, or voice (classical or musical theater styles).
Applicants often draw recording from recitals, extended solos in an ensemble performance that were recorded on video, or other live performances. Some applicants will also make recordings specifically for the College Admissions process.
Remember that all Lafayette College Department of Music ensembles are open to anyone, regardless of major. You DO NOT have to major in music to participate. These submissions go to our ensemble directors who may contact you directly, or you may feel free to contact any of them: visit music.lafayette.edu/performance/ for more information about our ensembles and Music program.
Theater Department would be pleased to receive materials from students interested in pursuing theater studies at Lafayette. Please note that we do not have a dance program.
Creative and passionate, just like you, CaPA scholars often don’t see themselves as artists. They may major in science, engineering or economics. The CaPA Scholar Program provides the physical, mental and monetary resources for students to explore a passion. Learn about the CaPA Scholars program.
Students who have applied or intend to apply to CaPA should submit supplementary material for their intended discipline as instructed above.
