    I do agree with some of the comments about Lehigh. As an international student I had a very low opinion about American people after graduating from Lehigh. I heard that the Deans office was threatened twice by a student in mid 90s. This sincere student was harassed at Lehigh University but his concerns were taken a joke. But I liked the Material Science Department. Lehigh ranked high (Top 9 school) in my days. Good professors.

    Lehigh Unversity police is terrible. They are lousy people. I went to seek their help since I was being harrassed.Lieutenant Robert S Bruneio was a sargeant then. He did not help me and simply send my report to the Dean's office. This is because he did not want to do the work himself. Lieutenant Bruneio did not explain me the correct law and simply told me, "I have got too much work. We will let the university handle this matter." No wonder why so much crime takes place on the campus.

    Lehigh Deans were terrible. Dean Curran (long time) was a very rude and an inefficient person. Dean John W Smeaton (now the provost) speaks politely but is very selfish person. He will never apologize to protect Lehigh's reputation.

    I remember when I was a sophomore a terrible incident happen at Lehigh University. Four Lehigh freshmen grabbed a female student and shaved a portion of her pubic area. That is so gross. That is a shame. The only reason I am giving TWO stars to Lehigh is because it is a good academic schools. Thanks to the students and professors who are involved in doing research.

    I graduated from Lehigh in 1993 with a Bachelors degree in Industrial Engineering. I am now a Vice Chairperson of a $1.2 corporation in India called Apollo Tyres. I found Lehigh to be a very good academic school. But it is a party school where a lot of spoiled kids from wealthy families come to study. And I happen to be one of them. I was a spoiled child and did a lot of bad things at Lehigh. I was reported to the Dean of Office in 1991 on a few occassions. Luckily the Associate Dean was always in my favor. But later I realized how bad and lousy Lehigh Administration was. This is because I was involved in harrassing a student but still nothing happened to me. Initially, I thought I could be in trouble. I graduated and I own a big business. The Lehigh Administration was very poor. They don't take things seriously atall.

    Students were so cruel at Lehigh. This includes international students who were spoiled undergrads of wealthy families. So many bad things happened on the hill. Greek week was sick.

    Lehigh, another sad story. That school is just party and sex. Dont understand how this school has a high reputation. Too much crime on campus and a lot of it does not get to media. Too many bad things to share about Lehigh.

    I spent nearly 6 years at Lehigh. It is a good academic school because of good graduate students. Otherwise, it is a party school and a lot of spoiled kids attend this school. I had a terrible experience at Lehigh in 91. I was harrassed by a few international students (from India) and the Associate Dean passed that incident as a practical joke. My concerns were not taken seriously despite the fact I was badly emotionally hurt. I found the Lehigh Deans and Lehigh police to be very inefficient. The head of the Dean did not even apologize to me even though he admitted that Lehigh was at fault. I was fortunate that this incident occured a few months before I graduated. Otherwise, it would have been impossible for me to concentrate on my studies for a few more semesters. Sorry, Lehigh. I will never send my children to your unethical school.

    Oh Lehigh, my alma mater. Unforunately, I can't give it more than 3 stars, although it seems on here, all schools are falling below the 3 rating, which sort of confuses me. Anyway, Lehigh is overall a solid school, and the campus is really, really beautiful (it's the reason I applied there in the first place). Academically speaking, Lehigh's engineering program is its highest accomplishment, but they are trying to become a more well-rounded school in recent years. I was in the college of arts and sciences, and while I do feel I got a great education and learned a lot, we were not given the same opportunities as those in the engineering school (or even as those in the business school). We had huge job fairs, but there were so few employers looking for someone in an arts & sciences major, that there was little reason for any of us to attend (other than to feel defeated). I do feel that I got a well-rounded education, being that as a journalism major, I had to complete courses in sciences... Read more

    Lehigh is not only a place to have fun while pursuing a degree, it is fun on the weekends for all. Despite what everyone things, there are still plenty of people on campus who don't party on the hill (or more recently off campus due to the cops) every weekend, and instead have fun sitting around in the dorm just talking, taking trips, or going to events in the arts center. The engineering curriculum is rigorous and the structure is given so that most students can succeed, and the business school is ranked highly and there are oppurtunities for students across all disciplines to study different fields or combine them.

    Loved every minute of it. Would do it again in a hearbeat. A school with excellent Engineering, Arts, Sciences, and Business programs (tough to find a school with that much academic diversity).

    Great School. Good academics. Good party environment. Work hard/party hard.

    Once you climb the hill, the old buildings do make for a nice campus. Solid Engineering program. . .it is a drinker's paradise. . .the "Talley HO" tavern is one of my all-time favorite college-area bars with above-average food. (If you don't have breasts, don't bother asking a male bartender for anything.) Academics are above-average. . .but I always left feeling like there was a sense of snobbery to the place that wasn't deserved. All in all, a decent school.

    Although they have cracked down in recent years, this school is a drinkers' paradase. On week-end nights you will see tens of students either passed out, or in the process of passing out, sprawled out or rolling down the steep hill on which the campus sits. In terms of academics, the engineering program is very strong here, and as such, you will find a lot of somewhat nerdy types. The fraternity scene is huge - in part because the metropolis of Lehigh, PA does not offer a lot of social alternatives. If you are thinking of visiting this school, try and go during Lehigh / Lafayette weekend - it is madness - and will give you a good taste of both the fun, and dark, side of going to Lehigh.
