    They have 2 all you can eat cafeterias and multiple other places to eat on campus. They are also very close to downtown Allentown where you can find more restaurants and they are all within walking distance from campus.

    For the first week you'll think the food is really good considering it's college food. And then you realize that despite the different options, there's a quality barrier. Some things are really great! And some things... aren't.

    the two main dining halls always provide you with a huge selection. If you like burgers or pasta, you'll never go hungry.

    the strong Greek system at Lehigh has been an important part of the student experience. The deeply rooted and well-established Greek system offers wide latitude in options, allowing most students interested in Greek life to find an organization that reflects their individual values, needs and interests.

    Greek life is very active, approximately 50% of students are in Greek Life. Don't let this scare you if you don't want to go greek though!

    It's overwhelming. More than half of the school goes greek at some point and a lot of the activities are hosted by the frats or sororities, but there isn't a lot of pressure to join really. If you want to- there are TONS of options. If not, there's no reason you'd have to.

    Greek life is a large part of Lehigh's campus, about 50% of the students are Greek. However there is absolutely no pressure for anyone to become Greek, and the houses are regulated by Lehigh so they must meet Lehigh's safety regulations.
