5 College Student

Overall Experience: I will receive quality graduate degree and will have very good prospects upon graduation.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: The university has a website that allows students to find off-campus housing as well as post sublets. There is a good variety and a lot of information.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are several off-campus dining options that are convenient and reasonably priced with great variety.

3 College Student

Administration: Parking services is very strict.

4 College Student

Scholarships: I have a fully funded research assistantship and it was not difficult to appropriately process and receive the funding.

2 College Junior

Athletics: No one goes to the games. We all just get drunk at MoCos (morning cocktails) at 8am for football games then go back to bed. At least that is what most Greeks do which account for 40% of the school. The rest have a pretty poor turn out. The university does little to help with team spirit unfortunately.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most dorms are a good place to be. After freshman year, you will likely live in suite-style housing if you choose not to go Greek

Party Scene: The Broadway Social is fun, but expensive.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Again, I don't really take part in athletics, but there is definitely more popularity amongst varsity sports than anything else. Football and basketball seem to be the main two sports everyone seems to care about, so club/intramural sports are quite overshadowed. However, when everyone comes together for a big game, the spirit is high and worthwhile.

Off-Campus Housing: My rating is what I consider to be neutral because I live on campus; if I had the choice I would commute, but I would lose my financial aid in the process and I'm not entirely sure why. I've also heard of friends trying to move off campus and in order to live off campus you have to apply many months ahead of time. There are also issues with landlords, but the living spaces are nice, clean, and semi-affordable, so it seems like a decent choice.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never been in an instance where my safety has been threatened, but I know of people who have been sexually assaulted/harassed, and it really isn't taken lightly on campus. That is, if it is brought to the attention of administrators. That's not to say that victims don't speak out--there is a day dedicated to victims speaking out and it is a campus-wide event. Awareness is constantly brought forth to the community, however, I don't really feel it's strictly enforced, as we're adults who make our own decisions and it's our responsibility to make the right choices. There are safe places on campus, and campus police are fairly reliable--we're always emailed whenever there is an incident on/off campus--so I don't feel unsafe on campus.

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.
