What Students Are Saying

4.23 Average Rating
Lehigh University is a REALLY great school. Although the courses are more rigorous than I expected, they are do-able and serve as great character builders. It provides a friendly environment, overall, and, as it has made me happy, I'm sure it will make anyone who decides to enroll there happy!
Benjamin from Phillipsburg, NJ
The most striking thing about Lehigh University is it's beautiful sloping campus that is in between the downtown Bethlehem area and South Mountain. Furthermore, the academics at Lehigh are challenging but refreshing for any motivated student looking for a challenge. At Lehigh you can always find something to do, be it see a free movie on campus, enjoy the food downtown, or enjoying the benefits of a club or organization you joined.
