Lehigh University

Lehigh is a premier residential research university that has long played a groundbreaking role in interdisciplinary education and research. Lehigh prepares students within a rigorous academic environment that blends learning inside and outside the classroom and promotes creativity, innovation and interaction. Our students see the world as a dynamic place, where their ideas, imagination and new thinking create positive change. Faculty work closely with students across disciplines and translate research and theory into practice. The close, mentoring relationships between students and faculty members across each of our four colleges provide all students with an opportunity to learn in a warm and collaborative atmosphere. Students are given the flexibility to explore academic areas outside their major field of study, where they learn how new knowledge comes at the intersection of ideas. Academic life at Lehigh extends well beyond the classroom, and students are engaged in educational pursuits in their local community and the world at large. Over 600 international learning opportunities and internships are available, including the fully-funded, individually designed lacocca lnternational lnternships and our unique NGO partnership with the United Nations. A highly active campus life offers students countless opportunities through more than 150 clubs and organizations, 25 Division I varsity sports, intramural and club programs and a vibrant arts scene. Lehigh's picturesque campus spans 2,358 acres, making it one of the largest private campuses in the country. More than 5,000 students call this hillside university home within our three distinguished undergraduate colleges: Arts & Sciences, Business and Engineering. Students go on to high levels of success in their chosen careers, with 95 percent of the class employed or in graduate school six months after graduation. Lehigh students benefit through learning and career opportunities provided by a worldwide network of 80,000 loyal alumni.
