I find it important for students to feel a sense of belonging, and view college as a second home, yet, at the same time have the ability to get out of your comfort zone and be independent. Lafayette is the epitome of this environment. I believe Lafayette would simultaneously make me feel comfortable while challenging me to get out of my comfort zone. At Lafayette the programs, clubs and traditions create a sense of family and community in which I would thrive in.Lafayette's small student body allows me to build close relationships with fellow classmates and professors thus making it easier for me to be part of the community and get a sense of belonging. Moreover, the study abroad programs to places like Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany will expose me to different and unique cultures expanding my perception. I could see myself attending The Rivalry and fully supporting and cheering on the football team. I see myself as a taking advantage of the student research opportunities through EXCEL Scholars program or conducting my own independent studies as a civil engineer. Lafayette's beautiful campus, facilities and resources can ensure that I will enjoy my experience and graduate as a strong and independent young woman.
