Welcome home! We are excited that you are a part of the Lafayette Leopard family.

Lafayette’s New Student Orientation is designed for all new-to-Lafayette students, including transfer and international students. During Orientation, you will connect with classmates while becoming familiar with Lafayette and all the resources available! You’ll hear from your peers, meet various faculty and staff, learn how to be successful both in and outside the classroom, and learn what being a Pard is all about! An assigned Leo (Orientation and First Year Mentor) will be there to guide you through it all!

New Student Orientation typically occurs the weekend before the fall semester begins, with move-in the Friday before classes start. Check back here in late spring for specific schedule information!
