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 Multicultural Greek Council Yard Show

At 6:45am this morning, Lehigh University student senate members placed 2977 flags on the University Center lawn in observance of the lives lost on September 11, 2001.

This is the best time of year to wander around campus, especially right before dusk. Last night, the Alumni Memorial was surrounded by a flock of birds, darting in and out of the vines that climb the building. The weather was perfect, and the campus was quiet. You could only hear the chirps of the birds, and the sounds of an occasional squirrel darting by with an acorn.

Goodnight Lehigh
