Dear Lafayette Students,
We hope this message finds you well as we prepare for Homecoming 2019! The College has planned an extensive schedule of events for this weekend and the information about the day’s activities, including the full schedule, important College policies, and state laws can be found on the 2019 Homecoming website.
A few important notes about tailgating at Fisher Stadium:
Tailgates will begin between 12:30 – 1 p.m. and last until kick-off at 3:30 p.m.
Students and alumni are encouraged to celebrate Homecoming at their respective tailgates or on the Markle Parking Deck.
Students are welcome to socialize on the parking deck; however, Markle parking spaces are sold to alumni and fans. Please keep the spaces clear and be respectful of other events.
Individual students of legal drinking age (21 years of age or older in the Commonwealth of PA) may consume alcohol on the Markle parking deck. Students may carry up to an amount equal to the College’s personal carry limit. The College’s personal carry limit is defined as one (1) six-pack of 12 oz. canned beer, or the equivalent in malt beverages or wine. No glass containers will be permitted and the only locations where open containers are permitted by those of legal age is Markle Parking Deck (or locations associated with pre-approved events).
You may know that Lafayette partners with the Easton Police Department to arrange patrols of the College Hill area throughout the academic year. Easton Police and the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Enforcement Agency will be on campus this weekend and consistently cite those for alcohol-related violations. While we encourage students to make memorable moments, the College has worked with other law enforcement officials to hold individuals accountable for alcohol-related violations, disorderly conduct, public urination, sexual misconduct, and violations of City ordinances or State laws.
As members of the Lafayette Community, we have a responsibility to care for the safety and well-being of each other. With that in mind, if you have an immediate concern about another person, please be sure to contact Public Safety by calling their emergency number at 610.330.4444. If you would not classify the concern as an immediate emergency, but still desire to help another student, please provide information using the One Pard universal reporting form.
Current and former students are encouraged to join their classmates in the Leopards’ Lair (section 7) of Fisher Stadium to cheer the Leopards to victory against Penn. We look forward to celebrating the Lafayette College Homecoming tradition with you!
