Health & Safety: Lehigh is generally very safe, if you stay on the campus

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in my chapters sorority house and while it's nice to live with all my friends, it's not as big as you would expect the rooms to be. I think it's almost ridiculous that we pay so much but don't have air conditioning in our facilities

4 College Senior

Athletics: I am a varsity athlete, and I enjoy my teammates.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have made some great friends, and I have learned much!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at my school generally affects the social atmosphere on campus. Everyone from their respective fraternities and sororities only talk to their brothers or sisters. Their is barely to no communication between Greeks and non-Greeks. Many of them tend to think that they are better because they are part of a group in which another is not a part of. Their parties through word of mouth are monotonous and boring.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at my school is exhilarating. Every game I go to a game students rally up and support our school and the athletes representing it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The overall experience at school as been invigorating at best since the school has a competitive aura about it. Every day I walk into a class it was always like a boxing match to see who can hit the other student with information that you have learned through your tireless studying overnight. As you step on campus, the school's environment resembles Harry Potter's school: Hogwarts. The architecture is ancient looking with many of the buildings featuring castle-like pedestals on top. The choice of the school was an easy one since this was my dream school since stepping on high school territory. I had many doubts if I was really good enough to be admitted into the school. As I got the acceptance letter in the mail, I was very excited to know that the next four years of my life would be some of my best. I would choose his school again if the process had to be done all over again.

Overall Experience: The class sizes at Lehigh are generally small. Most professors are good at teaching and are experts at what they teach. That being said, I believe some professors have room to improve. I was able to learn a lot at Lehigh but most of which I can apply to my internships. What I did at my internships, I had to learn by myself. If we can focus more on major classes during freshmen year rather than junior/senior year, we will be a lot more competitive in the job search market.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think the career services can do a better job. In general, it is very hard to network with past alumni. The career center has very few job postings and that most are only open to US-residents. I would be great to see the career center bolster our alumni network and reach out to more companies to provide opportunities.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Overall, Lehigh provides a very safe environment. Few times a year do we receive emails about sexual assault, robbery and break-ins. The school has a police station mid campus and just build a new one on lower campus. I think that will make our campus an even safer place.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived on campus during my freshmen year. While you live on campus, the school forces you to purchase the dinning plans. In total, it would cost around 13k for an entire year. That is the main reason why I moved off campus. The building I lived in was rather old and the food was sub-par. After moving off campus, I was able to cut that cost in half. That being said, Campus Square (senior apartment housing) is beautiful and amazing.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Lehigh used to be known as a part school with huge Greek life. However, in the past 20 years or so, the party seen has died down quite a bit. Our new school president wants Lehigh to give off more of a study and academic vibe. That being said, most students participate in Greek life. Most parties are only open to people within the organization.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Lehigh isn't too big on sports. Since Lehigh is a fairly small school, it is quite easy to make it onto the sports teams. As a result, most of our sport teams are not too good. The school spirit and fan support really vary between sports. During our rivals week for football, school spirit can be seen everywhere. However, we did not get much support when I was on the men's crew team.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The overall experience at Lehigh is definitely enriching and challenging. The course curriculum is set at a very high bar so that it'd be challenging for everyone. Although I have struggled in certain classes, I was able to really grasp the materials through extra help during walk-in hours. Most of the professors are very good at what they do and are willing to help. I really like my Lehigh experience and would definitely remain one of my top choices if I were to go back in time. One thing that Lehigh falls short of is that it's located further away from cities, where more opportunities are. Being in a city would provide many more co-op or internship opportunities, both of which would enrich a student's experience and increase their competitiveness in the market.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The actual campus itself is very safe, but the area of Bethlehem we live in once you go off-campus is not someplace I would want to walk alone around. The police presence of campus is large though, which makes me feel better.

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are very average. They are small, but get cleaned very often. All of the freshman dorms are very close to the academic buildings and dining halls, which is great.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
