Ready, Set, Go!!

posted in Laquan Lightfoot

So it is official. I turned in my last assignment for my last class of my undergrad career, and you know what? It feels good. It feels good to also know I accomplished something, that unfortunately most people do not get to achieve, and that is to graduate college. Well, correction: I accomplished something that […]

27 Days & Counting

posted in Laquan Lightfoot

2011 Commencement is approaching quickly, and although I have already secured my post-graduate plans by attending law school, I am not quite sure if I am ready. Not in the sense that I am going to miss Lafayette and do not want to leave, but in the sense that this is a new stage in […]

Haters Step Back

posted in Laquan Lightfoot

This past week the Precision Step Team, of which I have been a member for 3 years, held our 2nd Annual Haters Step Back Competition on Saturday. IT WAS AMAZING!!! I am truly grateful for the decision that I made to join the team three years ago and support its founder: Kameisha Jerae Hodge. She had […]

Apartment Shopping

posted in Laquan Lightfoot

So it is crunch time for me. These past few weeks, literally every chance, second or minute that I have to spare, I am researching and contacting apartment leasing offices in Philadelphia, and asking about their availability for a one bedroom apartment. This will in fact be my very first own apartment and to say […]

Emergency Meeting

posted in Laquan Lightfoot

So the Association of Black Collegians called an emergency meeting to address the issues of ethnic intimidation that have been happening quite frequently on campus, even after President Weiss sent out a mass email addressing these issues and stating that such conduct was inexcusable. Two more incidents occurred, one in Watson Hall where racial slurs, […]

Committed

This past week/weekend has been a pivotal turning point in my life. I finally committed to attending Earle Mack Drexel School of Law, and it seems so surreal. Ten years ago I would have never imagined that I would be attending law school, let alone receiving a full-merit scholarship to attend law school. I am […]

Open Round Championships

posted in Laquan Lightfoot

I must first admit that I actually did not do anything interesting for spring break. In fact I stayed on campus and practiced with my mock trial team. It was so quiet and serene that I was able to get some much-needed rest and reflect on my years here at Lafayette. It hit me quite […]

Ethnic Intimidation at Lafayette College

posted in Laquan Lightfoot

Unfortunately my email has become overwhelmed with too many ethnic intimidation notifications from Public Safety. There have been swastikas written all over campus including an employee’s car and other notable places on campus, including the bathroom wall in Kamine Hall, which is a freshman dorm. All of these acts have taken place over the course […]

Hidden Agendas

posted in Laquan Lightfoot

I was actually quite disappointed this week with certain events on Lafayette’s campus. The first of which was an interview that I had with a Lafayette newspaper reporter, A. J., that occurred at the end of last week, right before the Posse Plus Retreat. She wanted to talk to me on behalf of the Association […]

Posse Plus Retreat

posted in Laquan Lightfoot

What does it mean to be a “Millenial”? What does our identity consist of? These were two of the top questions at this year’s Posse Plus Retreat. All DC and NY Posse Scholars invited their friends and professors from Lafayette to share a dialogue about the dynamics of our generation. Some commentators commend our technological […]
