There’s nothing quite like being an undergraduate at Lehigh University. There’s a reason why many people call college “the best four years of your life,” and that statement applies to Lehigh perfectly. It may not be in the greatest town in the world—the winters can be harsh, and the student body is incredibly homogenous, but Lehigh students love their school. The professors are mostly knowledgeable and friendly, and academics play a huge role in any college student’s experience, but the friendships forged and the outstanding social life are what make Lehigh students fall head over heels for their school. Freshmen enter Lehigh unsure of what awaits them and emerge four years later wishing there was a way they could stay for another four years. You’re thrown together in various dorms in hopes that you’ll be able to coexist with one another, and for the first time in your life, you have unlimited freedom—you take classes you hate and eat horrible meals in the dining halls, but the Hill still has an intriguing, almost otherworldly aura about it.

From freshman through senior year, each has its own distinctive memories, and the entire four-year duration can almost feel like a dream at times. Many have called their time at Lehigh a fantasy, and there are few other experiences in life where that statement will be applicable.
