POSP is a program for first-year students coordinated by current Lafayette students under the advisement of Landis Center professional staff. Accepted first-year students are placed into one of five service projects. In addition to service, students engage in activities that introduce them to Lafayette’s campus and the city of Easton. POSP is a wonderful opportunity to meet and form meaningful relationships with other first-year students as well as returning student leaders. POSP is an excellent transition to Lafayette College and the Easton community.
Lafayette College continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and government/state recommendations. Any impact or changes to the Pre-Orientation Service Program (POSP), early move-in schedule, program camps, and/or the number of individuals accepted to the program will be communicated to students as soon as possible.
