    Lehigh University has a great reputation for its great networking resources and jobs/internships/co-ops opportunities. as an engineer, every professor is MIT, Harvard, Caltech grads, these guys are some of the brightest minds in the world, most of them published and award winning scholars, great party school if you like that scene as well. ...Continue reading

    Lehigh is absolutely amazing. There are many clubs on campus, some more known and active than others. Lehigh offers so much funding for individual students and clubs to participate in academic related events and programs. I feel safer on campus than the area. ...Continue reading

    Greek dominated, highly diverse in terms of finances, race, backgrounds. Im only a freshman so I can't say I have experienced or know of everything that Lehigh has to offer, but from what I've experienced so far this school is the best of the best. Always something going on. Generally a pretty inclusive campus. ...Continue reading

    I love Lehigh so much. Greek life is a little overwhelming here on campus if you are not an athlete, but there are still people that do not join. There is always something to do, but everyone is also focused on their studies. ...Continue reading

    I love Lehigh so much and it's totally the best place on earth as I know it Overall, it's a very rigorous school academically, but you'll still have some free time to do fun things. Bethlehem is a gorgeous city to explore, and Lehigh's campus, although hilly, is beautiful beyond comparison. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 4/5
    Campus is gorgeous, education is unrivaled, and the social scene is unreal. Lehigh can be hard to get used to. It seems very stuck up at first and Greek Life can be overwhelming (even though I'm involved in it). You have to seek out opportunities and find what makes you happy and soon enough Lehigh will feel like home. The academics are tough but I am beyond happy here now. Similar to any Ivy! ...Continue reading

    If you want to get involved with clubs, there are opportunities everywhere. There are always tons of things going on, you just have to look sometimes. The only complaint is you begin to feel isolated from the rest of the world since you have no need to leave campus. Close to phl &NYC. ...Continue reading

    Lehigh is full of intelligent students, but these students enjoy going out and partying a lot more than some might expect from such a prestigious university. The students here are superheroes. They work hard and play hard. This may be the only school in existence where you'll see a student doing break-through research, and then see that same student doing a keg-stand later that day. I'm honored to be working and playing in this institution. ...Continue reading

    Being a student at Lehigh will give you more opportunities than you know what to do with, if you're that type of person. There is always something to do, a party, a club event, a philanthropy, an on-campus movie, anything really. The resources are endless. This is the college experience I've always wanted and I'm proud to be a Lehigh student. Great school with a great community of students and teachers as well as great social and academic activities. Always something to do on or off campus. ...Continue reading

Just try to find your place at Lehigh, and you'll be alright. ...Continue reading

    Lehigh is very distinguished and has an amazing alumni network that can rival state schools that have 10,000 graduates every year. Challenging if you take hard class, pretty easy if you don't. Engineering is very very difficult across the board though. There are plenty of clubs to join. Bethlehem is very sketchy, but the campus is extremely safe. Overall its a great school, and im glad I came here You will simply fall in love. ...Continue reading

    Lehigh University is not your average school. I've never seen so many nerds who love to get wasted. The campus is beautiful and gives you some toned legs.

    The amount this school prepares you for life after college is incredible. It would be better to just do away with it all together. Arts & Crafts and Biz could go too. Also, Green Action sucks. That group tries to make things as inconvenient as possible. Food would be fantastic if more NORMAL, NON-VEGETARIAN/VEGAN stuff was offered. Off campus sucks, but aside from that college is great. ...Continue reading

But it seems that Lehigh doesn't have some famous Alumni all over the world. And it's a pity that the soccer court on the mountain is only available to LEHIGH SOCCER TEAM. ...Continue reading
