From Lehigh University

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.
