For more than 150 years, Lehigh’s interdisciplinary nature and focus on the work of today has prepared students to take on the challenges of tomorrow. Located in Bethlehem, part of Pennsylvania's beautiful Lehigh Valley, Lehigh is one of the nation's most distinguished private research universities.
Our ideal size of around 5,000 undergraduates and 2,000 grad students is large enough to offer world-class faculty and rigorous academics, but small enough to allow for close mentorship and hands-on research. Through creative problem solving, a collaborative culture and a focus on impacting humanity, Lehigh students are built for future success.

Lehigh University Reviews
Back in the early 2000s, it had a bad rep for too many parties. Some of that was true, I must admit. However, it is always a personal choice and, to the best of my knowledge, no one at Lehigh was ever prevented from studying because of parties.
Lehigh is not big on Athletics, at least not the major sports, but there is a very strong school spirit, reflected in great attendance of games (my favorites were women's volleyball and men's basketball).
For me, Lehigh is among the greatest schools, which helps you set for life.
