I very much enjoyed A Weekend to Remember, which arrived with Lafayette (spring 2015). The photos are just beautiful. The booklet is a wonderful, colorful documentation of a momentous occasion. An added surprise was seeing a photo of our son, Matthew, who will graduate in May. He has loved his experience at Lafayette and has received a great education.
I am impressed that the College put together such a special tribute of this milestone event and sent it to each family. Thank you.

My husband, Bob, a philosophy major, graduated from Lafayette in 1963. He was a faculty replacement hire in philosophy for the 1967-68 year. We were newly married, and I taught second grade in Phillipsburg, N.J. With plans to pursue my master’s in elementary education, I took a three-credit course at Lehigh University in spring 1968. Receiving A Weekend to Remember about the 150th rivalry game between Lafayette and Lehigh brought back memories of my chutzpah in taking a Lafayette notebook to my class at Lehigh!
I just received and reviewed Lafayette (spring 2015). Although I don’t make it back to campus often nor do I participate in many events, this latest issue of the magazine makes me feel like I have been to all of them. Thanks for a great job of showing what Lafayette means to the community and what it has meant to so many people’s lives.

As one who has been involved with Lafayette College for many years, who stays connected in a variety of ways, and who thought he knew almost all there is to know about the College, I thank you for proving otherwise in such an informative and interesting way. The stories about student study-abroad experiences and about the great research opportunities students have made me a little jealous and considerably proud!
As a student I was grateful for the close relationships I had with my faculty. That strength of Lafayette continues, and the stories and articles you bring to alumni make us realize that the relationships we valued are a vital part of the Lafayette experience that students have today. For many alumni Lafayette magazine rekindles the experiences they had by having them share in the lives of students today.
Keep up the good work. It’s fun to feel like an undergraduate once again!
