Lasting Legacies Bright Future

Lafayette admitted its first class of women in the fall of 1970. This unprecedented move toward co-education elevated the profile of Lafayette College as a leader in social change and academic integrity. Fall 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of this milestone at Lafayette.

The College is commemorating this historic moment with a year-long celebration of programming and events. Throughout the year, we invite the participation of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and parents as we honor the contributions of women to Lafayette’s past, present, and future.
