Star Pupil Opportunit
From high school to higher education, Layfayette gives both residents and outsiders the opportunity to enrich their learning experience with a host of educational facilities. In addition to multiple private schools and public elementary, middle, and high schools in the Tippecanoe School Corporation, Layfayette is also home to the world-famous Purdue University, Harrison College, and Ivy Tech Community College. For added variety with a foreign twist, sister cities Ota, Japan and Longkou, China participate in student exchange programs and offer opportunities for students who want to travel across the globe and learn more about the world.
LA Entertainment in L
Perhaps Sydney Pollack, the director of such films as The Firm and Tootsie, was inspired to get into show business after taking in all the arts and entertainment that Layfayette has to offer. Built in 1938, the Layfayette Theater has been entertaining residents for decades with everything from DJ nights to holiday craft fairs. You are sure to have a good time at the Center for the Performing Arts, as this city-owned, 1,190-seat venue has seen the likes of Bob Hope, Will Rogers, and the Marx Brothers. Today you can catch a concert, children’s event, or theater production here.
Shop ‘Til You Drop
Whether you are looking for an ensemble to wear out on the town or on a date with your special someone, you are sure to find fashionable outfits and more at Lafayettes’s fine stores. You can knit a red sweater with yarn from River Knits Fine Yarns and buy some red roses to go with it at Rubia Flower Market. While you are at it, get your hair done at Venetian before parading around town in your wild outfit on a bike from Virtuous Bicycles. If you would rather go wild in the privacy of your home, live it up with some music from J.L. Records.
