Welcome to the illustrated 60-year history of the International Affairs program! We scoured Lafayette College’s archives, the student newspaper, annual reports, and other sources to tell the stories of our students, faculty, and events over the years. At the top of the timeline you will find images and stories from IA in chronological order; use the bottom section to scroll through the decades. We hope you enjoy the memories and learn about the latest news. We are also looking forward to hearing from you! Submit your own memories and photos and add to the history.
