Meet the Author

I am working as an agent's assistant at a large talent agency specializing in film, television, commercials, and theater. I work with a Lafayette graduate, and I started at the company as an intern during my second semester of senior year; I would spend my free moments reading student surveys there that I compiled into this book. I am loving my job—it's right up my alley, and my bosses are great—and I moved into an apartment on the Upper East Side with a friend from college. At Lafayette, I was the arts and entertainment editor of the school paper for two years and news editor for one, I was also a social coordinator of my sorority, Alpha Gamma Delta, a resident advisor, and I served as the Hillel secretary for two years. What I'm always going to remember most about college are the friendships I have made (and kept) over these four and a half years. I have finally accepted that I'm never going back to Easton as a student, but I am still grateful for everything I learned there.I guess I should thank some people for helping me achieve my own "Lafayette Experience"—to my best friends Dave and Michelle, through everything you two have been my staples, and your friendship means the absolute world to me; to Jeanette, Caroline, Amy, and Beth—my Conway girls—you have shown me what true friendship is really about, and how it can last through four long years; to all my sorority sisters, who made every formal and date party a blast; to Sarah, Mitch, Noah, and Rachael, who are officially members of my "Jew Crew" at Hillel; to Alissa and Kelley, whose true friendship I only discovered during senior year, but who have secured a place in my heart forever; and, finally,to anyone who has ever worked on the Lafayette, the single most influential activity of my collegiate career. To all the people who I couldn't mention here, I thank each and every one of you for making college the best four years of my life (so far). Last but certainly not least, I'd like to thank my family—Mom, Dad, and Elliott—who have always been my rock. I hope you've enjoyed reading this book, and if you have any questions or comments, please contact me by e-mail at And, of course, thanks to everyone at College Prowler who allowed me free reign to write such an important testimony to my college years. Good luck researching your perfect college—once you find it, you'll know.Pamela Roth
