PARD PRIDE SOARING HIGH
I read Lafayette [spring 2014] over the weekend, and I could not for the life of me shake the smile from my face. I am astonished at the pace to which Lafayette seems to be able to stay ahead of the curve in preparing students for life after graduation by providing relevant, preparative, and motivational learning opportunities on and off campus.
My Pard Pride is soaring high. The presentation of the information in the magazine plays a major role in it. I know that the College takes the dissemination of our message very seriously, and I think that we are certainly on one of the highest levels of quality and quantity. That quality synergizes with and makes easier our efforts as alumni in promoting the College’s recognition. My experience as an undergrad has contributed greatly to the goals I have achieved so far.

KUDOS TO CAPT. ROTH ’81
I am glad to see Lafayette noting the accomplishments and expressing appreciation [“Capt. S. Robert Roth ’81 Commands USS Harry S. Truman,” www. lafayette.edu]. He has a fan club of thousands of sailors and their families whom he has taken care of and led so successfully over his career.
— MASTER CHIEF DENNIS TAYLOR
We are proud of our Delta Upsilon brother and the service he is providing to our country. What an honor for Capt. Roth, and on behalf of 80,000 fraternity brothers we salute the sacrifices he and his family have made for our security. Well done, says a former Navy lieutenant.

CLASS OF 2018: MAKING FRIENDS VIA FACEBOOK
Receiving the invitation to join Lafayette’s Class of 2018 Facebook group made me feel like a new member of a vibrant community. I read posts by students and felt I already knew them.
After receiving friend requests, I started communicating with them —so many different people with the same ambition, similar goals, and various interests. The page gives international students’ like me the chance to feel part of the accepted students day experience. I can look at pictures of happy future Leopards (and show them to my friends here to brag about being a future Leopard).
Every day I read the new items. I fall asleep even more excited and impatient about the day that I will catch the plane and go to this magnificent place!
