Alumnus - Grad Year 2001

Overall Rating

I loved Lehigh's campus and my fellow students. Attending football games was great, especially Lehigh/Lafayette. Off-campus Bethlehem certainly left something to be desired so I often found myself traveling to NY or Philly to get away for a weekend. I was not in a fraternity, but still felt welcome at many Greek events. Living off-campus was OK, but driving up to class was hard due to the heavy parking restrictions on campus.

Overall Rating

This school prepares you for the real world. They do not baby you here, as in other universities. More often than not, there is no attendance grade. It's your choice to go to class, just like it's your choice to go to work. The university is very helpful when it comes to career advice as well. There are plenty of opportunities for entry level jobs and internships. You just have to have enough gumption to take advantage of all the opportunities. It's all what you make it. And I am proud to call myself a terp!
