Confirmed: College President Nicole Hurd is a Swiftie.

But that is not all. The Lafayette has the scoop on the top songs of some of Lafayette’s top administrators.

For the record, Hurd and her chief of staff, Nicole Eramo, are both Apple Music users while Sherryta Freeman, the athletic director, favors Tidal.

Hurd’s Apple Music Replay

  1. “Islands in the Stream” by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers – “This is a song Bill and I send to each other when I travel, turns out the Beckhams like it too!”
  2. “A Beautiful Game” by Ed Sheeran – “From my favorite show, Ted Lasso.”
  3. “Carolina in My Mind” by James Taylor – “Play this when I am missing my kids.”

Eramo’s Apple Music Replay

  1. “Learn to Fly” by Foo Fighters
  2. “BREAK MY SOUL” by Beyoncé – “I listened to a lot of ‘Renaissance’ this year.”
  3. “Lonely Weekend” by Kacey Musgraves
  4. “VIRGO’S GROOVE” by Beyoncé
  5. “Aurora” by Foo Fighters

Eramo was listening to Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly” before the interview. She confirmed that she’s a fan of Kendrick Lamar.

Freeman’s Tidal Rewind

  1. “CUFF IT” by Beyoncé
  2. “Don’t Start Now” by Dua Lipa

Editor’s note: Hurd requested that Managing Editor Trebor Maitin ’24 and News Editor Selma O’Malley ’26 include their top songs as a condition of her inclusion in this article. Maitin’s top songs are Jack Harlow’s “They Don’t Love It,” Doja Cat’s “Options” and Post Malone’s “Cooped Up (with Roddy Rich).” O’Malley’s top songs are Fleetwood Mac’s “You Make Loving Fun,” Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In the Dark” and The Eagles’ “Take It Easy.”
