5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes have not started yet, but my communication and interaction with students and staff has been satisfactory so far.

Off-Campus Housing: The university is literally surrounded by houses targeted to students. Most of the time it is a hit or miss. Some houses are extremely nice and well kept but also cost a lot. Cheaper houses look like they're falling apart. With a little research you should be able to find a house that fits your needs and budget.

Party Scene: Very reliant on Fraternities. This is probably the case at most colleges. The campus is very much greek. If greek life isn't for you, there are other people who host parties like different student organizations. Also I hear that the IBE program has great barbecues. Also sports teams are like fraternities of their own. The wrestling team probably has some of the most poppin' parties I've been too.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of ethnic options available. There's a Mexican place, indian, chinese, thai, sushi, fro yo all within a block away. We also have a subway, wendy's, perkins and dunkin nearby. You'll never feel like you need to stay on campus to find nourishment.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus Administration gets it. It is college, people will be trying new things. They are not out to get you, but rather there to make sure you're safe.

Campus Food: Dining is decent, above average compared to other schools. Although students constantly complain, the food is actually good. If you want to mix it up and not going to a dining hall, there is a selection of ala carte options available.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process is very straightforward and easy to do. Aid offers come in at the end of May or early June. Lehigh gave me more aid then I was expecting. Other schools (Carnegie Melon and Rensselaer Poly) couldn't even come close.

Campus Housing: Living in freshmen housing at Lehigh University went a lot better than I thought it would be. At first when I found out I would be in a forced triple, i was a bit nervous, but once getting to campus, I realized it was for nothing. The room was a corner on the fourth floor and it was super spacious. The building itself was great. It had a study lounge, a tv room, and a game lounge on the first floor. The bathroom were big and well maintained. People had a great time living there. My hall mates have become my closest friends to date. And we even chose to live together next year and will be pledging the same fraternity.

Campus Food: The menus and quality of the food at the dining halls is a hit or miss; sometimes its really good and other times its pretty bad. Upper cort is a good option, kind of a food court type area. But you use meals to pay for this food, and each swipe is only valued at $4.35 so you end up losing a lot of money for the meal plan you've paid for.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The houses are kind of crappy because most of them have been used for off campus parties, and the neighborhood surrounding the campus is not good. But the prices are pretty cheap and they're close to campus so not that bad.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The nightlife at Lehigh is one of the best. There's always at least one party happening on every night of the week. Its mostly greek or sport parties held in off campus houses. There are a couple good bars to go to on off nights, or if house parties end earlier. The only problem is if you are not on a sports team or in a greek house, it can be difficult for you to find parties.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a couple of really good quality places close to campus; some places are cheaper than others. A good number of non-chain, local eateries. There are not a lot of late night options though.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The school is not that strict. You will obviously get in some trouble if you're caught drinking, doing drugs, etc. The administration is pretty strict with greek organizations and will not hesitate to kick off chapters, but is inconsistent. Some chapters will get kicked off for silly things while others will stay when they have done worse.

Scholarships: I got the money I needed to attend this school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: A lot of the freshman dorms are really nice with great amenities, some more than others. A lot of students live in on campus greek houses their sophomore year. The sophomore dorms differ greatly. There are the normal dorm-style ones which are pretty crappy, and then there are the apartment style ones which are very nice. It all depends on your housing lottery number. Overall, some are better than others.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The houses are mostly destroyed from someone who hosted parties. some of them become cheaper because of this. most houses don't get much or any free parking. There is always a few break ins and robberies in the area

5 College Junior

Party Scene: it is the best as long as you belong to an organization whether it is a sports team, greek life, or club or something. it is all off campus and they happen nearly every night of the week if its greek related. it has created a divide in the school between groups because many parties are not necessarily open to everyone.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: i love the restaurants around my school because most of it is affordable and good. the best places to go are jenny's, nawab, la lupita, sal's, and asian bistro. they are all byob

4 College Junior

Administration: I think that we are very lenient for most things so i dont have a problem with it

4 College Junior

Scholarships: i recieved the money that i needed to attend this school

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The worst part about the dining is the amount they say is equivalent to one meal. It isn't enough money because one meal at the dining hall is like 10 dollars but to redeem it at upper its not 10 its less

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I loved where I lived sophomore and junior year, the best housing options are apartment style or fraternity and sorority houses but you have to be in a fraternity or sorority to get it. They do not have enough housing to my knowledge

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: What can I say the off campus housing is cheap but for a reason. Its not like the housing is bad its just your typical off campus housing but the plus side is that it is extremely cheap.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You cant beat our party scene. Although the weekends are the best for having many options of different parties you can find a party EVERY night of the week. Yes that's right EVERY night of the week. Beyond having many party options on the weekends the parties are free to go to and drink to your hearts content. There is also THE WEEK our rivarly week where there are themed partes every night of the week and not just one or two on sundays and mondays but many [parties every night. Themes range from jungle and toga to anything but clothes, hotels and anything for money. Hotels is an amazing party where each room in the house has a different cocktail to try and anything for money you get monopoly money for doing random tasks like taking a shot or dancing funny or making out with a certain person. Once you have the money you can then use it to have someone else do something else. Person with the most money at the end of the night gets a bottle of goldslager. So yea we have the best party scene

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great abundance of small locally owned restaurants in the immediate area as well as the typical chain restaurant options not to much further away.

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.
