Lafayette hosts dynamic speakers & creative events. From festivals to conferences, our calendar is always packed to keep our campus informed and impassioned.

Lafayette celebrates Earth Week and Sustainability Month which include an array of educational, entertaining events that bring the campus community together. We host an annual keynote lecture, festival, and ‘LaFarm to Table’ local food dinner. Every year is a little different though – expect new topics and activities, in addition to the traditions.

Green Move Out and Green Move In cap the beginning and end of the school year, ensuring that ‘waste’ is diverted into streams that limit our footprint. Green Move Out collects gently-used clothing, furniture, non-perishable foods, and books which are distributed to local charities. Green Move In assists students in making sure cardboard and packaging items get recycled correctly.

Lafayette is a member of the Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges (LVAIC), which hosts the LVAIC Campus Sustainability Conference. The most recent was held at Lafayette in February 2018 and included a keynote speaker, a poster session, presentations, and workshops.

We also participate in national events like America Recycles Day and Campus Sustainability Month. Environmental clubs host paper-making workshops, film screenings, and more.
