AN EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM
Lafayette gives its students several opportunities to learn outside of the traditional classroom setting. Study abroad is embraced by Lafayette as an integral part of an undergraduate experience. Students that study abroad gain cross-cultural communication skills, as well as an appreciation for another culture. Other non-traditional opportunities include: undergraduate research, first-year seminars, and community outreach.
FIRST-YEAR SEMINAR (FYS)
First-year seminar courses are limited to 16 students per class. These courses cover special topics and are vital for improving writing and communication skills. Students are taught to participate and actively engage with other peers. Students will also learn the basics of research, a valuable skill that can be used throughout all four years of college.
