There aren’t many complaints about Lehigh’s facilities, save for the gym. The gym is one of the most crowded facilities on campus, and the students feel it’s in serious need of an upgrade. Most of the cardiovascular machines are old, and the stationary machines are outdated, not to mention there aren’t nearly enough stations. The gym is an almost unbearable place to be during peak times, which is usually right after class ends at 4 p.m., but those in search of exercise should be able to find solace in the pool or basketball or volleyball courts.
Aside from the gym, the Ulrich Student Center is pleasant inside, although it could benefit from more shops or diversions. It’s also something of a social hub because it’s almost impossible not to bump into someone when you go to get your mail. Some complain about the layout of the campus, what with it being on a giant hill and all, but many would argue that the peaks and valleys are what give the school its character.
