POSP is a program for first-year students coordinated by current Lafayette students under the advisement of Landis Center professional staff. Accepted first-year students are placed into one of four service projects. In addition to service, students engage in activities that introduce them to Lafayette’s campus and the city of Easton. POSP is a wonderful opportunity to meet and form meaningful relationships with other first-year students as well as returning student leaders. POSP also aids first-year transition to Lafayette College and the Easton community.
