Lehigh University Reviews
Lehigh University has tremendously prepared me for the work world and for the graduate study that I will soon begin. Often called the hidden ivy of the north, Lehigh is full of great students, accomplished staff members, and a host of programs, sports and activities that will appeal to all. The beautiful campus is enchanting with historic charm, majestic rotundas and traditional architecture. Rooted in both sports and academics, Lehigh has a great culture that its founder, Asa Packer, established. Our football rivalry with neighboring school Lafayette and remains a strong part of our culture and unites the campus in a fun pursuit. Academically, Lehigh is very distinguished. Ranked top 50 in the nation by US News, Lehigh is a great place to start if you are undecided or if you have a program in mind. Broken out into 4 schools, Lehigh has the right starting point for any program which you can explore and better understand your strengths and aspirations. Alternatively, if your undecided and unsure, Lehigh makes it easy to transfer between schools and catch up so you can still graduate on time. The academic advisors are incredibly helpful and go out of their way to help. Speak to an advisor as soon as you can, even as soon as your freshman year. Their wisdom and guidance can help you land an early internship your sophmore year or even get you thinking about opportunities you may have overlooked. Once you have declared a major, meet your program chair and discuss career opportunities and progression planning. Throughout your tenure at Lehigh, you will be challenged and engaged and will grow and learn. If you are sincere in your learning path, you will be much ahead of your peer when you launch into the work world. The confidence and expertise that Lehigh instilled in me is unmatched. Today, 6 years after graduation I am a director at a $2B public company, a path I know that Lehigh put me on. At the end of February I will begin my masters at IU's Kelly School of Business and I am excited for this new chapter and beginning. It all started at Lehigh and as I proud alum I would highly recommend the school to anyone who wants a great school with everything to offer.
Lehigh University is an incredible institution, though many of its assets are geared towards business and engineering. Students in smaller departments don't get the same level of career services that those in the engineering and business schools do. Overall I am satisfied with my education .
The Journalism program at Lehigh University is outstanding. All of the professors were passionate, intelligent and a great resource to me during my time at Lehigh, as well as post-graduation. The program itself was incredibly modern and up-to-date. It truly helped me understand what a career in Journalism would be like. I had wonderful examples of my work for my portfolio when I graduated; and my professors helped me network too! As a pre-Med student at Lehigh, I was unsatisfied and made the switch to Journalism. I am so glad that I did. The program was absolutely perfect for me and made for a smooth transition into a full-time career when I graduated.
The integrated Business and Engineering program at Lehigh is a great program. Its an opportunity for top students of many different backgrounds to work in a very entrepreneurial setting. Lehigh though somewhat small, has a very large influence with major companies, especially in New York, and IBE places students at the forefront.
Overall Great School, Not to big students wise, but still all the opportunities and reputation of a big state school. Campus is beautiful and the social scene is excellent. Would recommend for any Engineering student! I love it so much I am staying for grad school at Lehigh
Lehigh is a great school for education, especially in the sciences. There are a lot of opportunities to study abroad, gain internships, and conduct research. There is also a great social life here, so if you want more of a social school, Lehigh is the one.
A school with a very ingrained work-hard, play-hard mentality. Lehigh University creates extremely well-rounded students socially as well as academically.
I LOVED my time at Lehigh! I can count the number of bad professors I had on one hand. Within my major, I can count them on a pirate's hook, and still have one left over. Beautiful campus, too. I highly recommend.
Work hard, play hard. Excellent education. Heavy on Greek life. Good school for biological sciences. One of the best schools for business and education.
Excellent! Really enjoyed my classes and the academic environment.
