This is part of the CAA program (like Bristol).

The first people came to the Easton site after the Frederick Maryland site said JHU could not come back, as they were renovating all the dorms as this was the first year males could live at the school during the year, in 2003. Many of these "Hood Rats" (the term for both students and faculty who went to Easton after they left Hood College) came to Lafeyette College in 2003. Since then the Easton site has slowly begun to establish its own traditions. The 2006 summer is infamous for it's 3-day blackout, brownouts, flood in the town below, and life-threatening hail.

Buildings

  • South College- Boy's dorm, site office, and health office.

  • Farinon - contains the cafeteria, dance/activities room, and movie theatre.
