Student Health and Safety
Lafayette is committed to providing students with an environment for optimal intellectual, social, and emotional growth. We take very seriously our responsibility to help our students make healthy and safe choices and to create an educational milieu that both challenges and supports students as they strive to achieve their full potential. The College has a variety of programs, initiatives, and services designed to provide a safe and secure environment for students and other members of the campus community.
High-risk consumption of alcohol by students poses a significant impediment to the safety of our students and to the College’s core academic mission. Lafayette’s position on the use of alcohol is not one of prohibition, but one of education and accountability.

A student whose behavior appears to meet the criteria for posing a serious risk to his/her own or others’ health or safety, and/or the educational process, will be subject to review by members of the Behavioral Health and Safety Review Committee.

- Blind Booking April 15, 2014I know that Lafayette had theirs ages ago… but this week is Jacobs’ Spring Break. Casey and I decided to do blind booking. It’s a really neat idea.
