Lafayette College officially received its charter March 9, 1826. Alumni, parents, and friends honor this occasion each year by gathering that day for a coast-to-coast toast to Lafayette.
From faculty presentations to the annual Parade to class socials and many more events, we have much for alumni and their guests to enjoy while you catch up with old friends and make new ones.
Incoming Class Welcome Events
Members of the College's newest class and their parents are invited to these receptions each year to meet alumni, staff, and some current students and their parents.
Alumni Volunteer Awards
We couldn't be more proud of the over 3,000 passionate alumni, parents, staff, and friends who volunteer for the College each year. The annual awards ceremony is one way we celebrate them and show our appreciation. We also recognize them in the annual volunteer participation list.
Alumni and students enjoy pre-game socials, exhibits, and presentations, an exciting football game, and other activities amid the beauty of the autumn campus. This is one of the most popular events of the year!
Pride and spirit reach a peak at this exciting match—college football’s most-played rivalry. If you can’t watch the big game in person, catch it with fellow Leopard diehards at one of the many telecast parties held around the country.
