On a hill above Easton, Pennsylvania, 75 miles from New York City, Lafayette College combines the personal-attention virtues of the liberal arts with a professional engineering program and the campus spirit of Division I athletics. Competing with nearby Lehigh in the longest continuous football contest in the nation—despite the rival's having double the enrollment—the campus takes pride in its Leopards. A tenacious Greek presence hangs on here, where the motto is Cur Non? (for "Why Not?"), which the 19-year-old Marquis de Lafayette adopted when he left France in support of the American Revolution.
