Founded by a local industrialist and philanthropist, Lehigh University is a 4-year private school in eastern Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. Lehigh is home to colleges of Business, Engineering, Arts & Sciences, Health, and Education granting undergraduate degrees in over 100 academic majors. For students who wish to learn in another culture, the university offers fully-funded international internships to work and research overseas. Every fall, Lehigh plays an annual football game with neighboring Lafayette University known as “The Rivalry” and students celebrate with Spirit Week activities such as Bed Races.
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!

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.
