In the first year of your Gateway, you’ll start evaluating how your interests, skills, and talents connect to specific career fields and opportunities for graduate study.

Here’s What You’ll Do:
  • Attend a group Gateway orientation
  • Meet with and begin discussions with your Gateway Counselor
  • Consider academic and extracurricular choices at Lafayette that will support your personal and professional goals.
  • Learn about careers from alumni who are passionate about their Lafayette connection.
  • Develop a preliminary career or graduate study plan.
  • Create a preliminary resume based on the skills and experience you’ve developed to this point.

At this stage, you’ll learn how your entire experience at Lafayette can serve your long-range goals, and you’ll develop a relationship with your Gateway counselor who will support you every step of the way.
