The McDonogh Network is an active and engaged organization consisting of multiple generations of Lafayette College black alumni. The network enriches and informs its constituents through communications, events, and activities that promote their interests on campus and in the community at large. The organization supports and mentors the current black student body by encouraging their academic and social progress and by promoting diversity among the student body.
Lafayette is located on a hill just above downtown Easton, a multi-ethnic community recently named one of the 100 best small art cities in the United States. It’s a short, ten-minute walk down a set of steps that leads from the campus to the Williams Visual Arts Building and into downtown.
