Lehigh University

Lehigh University is a private, co-educational school historically known for its engineering and business programs. Students benefit from almost 700 distinguished faculty members as well as the innovative approach they bring to teaching. Students can custom-tailor their areas of study across the four schools and multiple disciplines to arrive at the major they are truly passionate about. Student life revolves around campus, especially around the time of the big game against Lafayette. The week before the big game involves decoration of the Greek houses, a bonfire, parties, rallies and the Marching 97 performing unexpectedly during classes the Friday before the game.
