What's new for this year’s Homecoming?
Lafayette College is sponsoring several events for Homecoming 2018 on College Hill, including First Gen, McDonogh, and Civil Engineers tailgates, an event celebrating the Queer Archives project, a Lafayette escape room, a tour of the Rockwell Integrated Sciences Center, and a movie on the Quad featuring Hidden Figures!
Students are encouraged to participate in Homecoming activities. Without exception, existing College policies are in place on Homecoming, while the continued enforcement of Pennsylvania State law will be visible. The College will employ Easton Police and College Public Safety officers this year to ensure that all those who participate in the day’s activities can do so safely and in compliance with College policy and Commonwealth Law.
When and where can we pick up student tickets?
Lafayette students receive complimentary admission to all home football games with the presentation of a valid Lafayette College ID, with the exception of the Lafayette vs. Lehigh football game and all Patriot League Championship events. Students simply need to show their Lafayette College ID at the entrance to the Stadium to receive their free ticket to the game.
Who can drink alcohol during Homecoming?
Under Pennsylvania Law, students must be 21 years of age or older to drink alcohol. Students who choose to drink alcohol at any tailgates should be ready and willing to produce identification to Police, Public Safety, security personnel, and/or College officials when asked.
What safety precautions is the College utilizing to keep students and alumni safe at Homecoming?
In addition to issuing these expectations and enforcing College policy and PA law, the College will open Bailey Health Center between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Homecoming. The College previously distributed safety information within the Student Handbook and via the College web sites. Please keep in mind that, in accordance with the Good Samaritan Policy, students will not be disciplined for seeking help for themselves or other students who are intoxicated.
The College works year round to encourage legal and safe consumption of alcohol. Interested parties can read more about the College’s ongoing efforts at aods.lafayette.edu/.
