Aaron O. Hoff Class of 1836

Students, faculty, and staff were honored May 5 for their dedication and commitment to the College community at the 23rd annual Aaron O. Hoff Awards ceremony. 

Sponsored by the Office of Student Life Programs, the awards are named in honor of one of the College’s first students. In 1832, Hoff blew the horn that summoned Lafayette’s first 43 students and three teachers to class. As a member of the Class of 1836, Hoff was the College’s first African American student.
