Christie's review of Lehigh University

Christie's answers to common questions

Describe the students at your school.

Because Lehigh is so expensive, many kids come from wealthy backgrounds. Sometimes the ones who don't stand out. Half of the campus is from NJ. Campus is not very diverse; the minorities tend to stick together.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Since it is getting harder to get into, I think the student body will be a little more nerdy and studious, which may help Lehigh clean up its act a little bit in terms of not enough work and too many drugs.

What are the academics like at your school?

Lehigh's business school is well-known, which is nice for me. Too many classes overlap. I never got to know professors like I wanted to.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Dating scene = mostly random hookups. I had a boyfriend that I met at Lehigh and dated all 4 years and we were seen as odd. Lehigh is a big party school. Greek life is a big part of it- especially the hill. Too many drugs in the past couple of years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I wish Lehigh was a little bigger.. It is nice knowing a lot of people but gets old by senior year. South Bethlehem is horrible and keeps getting worse- the north side is nice though.
