Lehigh University Scenes from South Mountain

Welcome to Lehigh! Founded in 1865, Lehigh University is a co-educational, non-denominational and private university. A little more than an hour's car ride from Philadelphia or New York City, Lehigh is located within the thriving economic and cultural corridor of the eastern United States.

Scenes from the Lehigh University fly fishing Club

Mitchell Kaliner, a junior finance major in the College of Business, fly fishes in Saucon Creek, right next to Lehigh’s Goodman Campus. The creek is stocked with rainbow trout, but also has wild brown trout, shown in these photos. Kaliner tied flies that look like nymphs, which the trout would be eating at this time of year. The fly fishing club isn’t only about fishing, the group promotes the conservation of local cold-water fisheries, which are some of the finest in the state of Pennsylvania. The organization works with Trout Unlimited, a national cold-water habitat conservation organization, in conservation projects such as local stream cleanups. They also promote the sport of fly fishing to students who are either interested in trying out the sport or are already seasoned fly fishermen. You can learn more about the club here.

Lehigh University Biology Professor Julie Miwa and biology students have formed a jazz band. They played last night at Yianni’s Taverna in Bethlehem. Professor Miwa is a strong believer in the relationship between art and science. Quite a few people from the Lehigh community came out to watch them perform. It was a great way to end the day, hanging out and listening to some great jazz.

October is domestic violence awareness month. This sign from last semester’s March of Voices tells you some red flags for dating violence. The Gender Violence Response Advocates Program is a network of compassionate staff and faculty members who are trained to assist survivors of gender violence. We saw their brochure at today’s stress oasis, and wanted to share their contact information. This new office represents Lehigh’s continued efforts to make its campus a healthy, safe and thriving community. Learn more about The Office of Gender Violence Education and Support here.

Many prospective students wonder about the Bethlehem area, what the town is like, and what restaurants they might find in the area. Full of Crepe is one of South Side Bethlehem’s newer restaurants. It’s not far from Campus Square. You’ll find both sweet and savory crepes on the menu. There’s some seating inside, but we also recommend getting your crepe to go and walking around the corner to the Greenway. There are some benches very close to the restaurant, and it’s a good chance to enjoy the fresh air and nice weather we’ve been having. Located on  333 S New St, you still have time to get there before 6pm, if you need some fuel for studying.

Last night, Rabbi Danielle Stillman spoke with Lehigh students in the College of Education’s mountaintop garden. The group feasted on honey sweetened bread and apples, and discussed the tradition of eating sweet foods to welcome in a sweet new year. They also learned about the Lehigh University Apiary, and where honey comes from.
