Included are the loud but entertaining thunderstorms, the radiant sunshine of the day, and the warm evenings where outside is the only place to be.

A Summer Evening at Lafayette

The summer residents at Lafayette are somewhat limited in their food choice on campus as most of the school-year dining halls are closed due to the lack of about 2,400 students on campus :).

One of the best things about working in the admissions office this summer is the ability to create and follow through with different projects that my co-workers and I come up with. Some of these projects include designing the team crests for the different “houses” or teams of tour guides for the upcoming year, creating […]

Pat Lorenz: Markle Legend

posted in Ryan Beebe

In reference to last week’s post, some of you may remember the woman I spoke of who is basically the supervisor of the visitation/tour guide office in Markle Hall of Admissions: Pat.
