During orientation, freshman students were asked to list stereotypes of Lehigh students. Some kids answered that the girls all wear big designer sunglasses and Ugg boots. They wear NorthFace jackets and basically come from wealthy families. They value wearing brand name clothes. Also, Lehigh is known as a party school. The class of 2011 is 30% women / 70% men.

Mike

Wealthy, white, apathetic, conservative, conformist

Blake

Lehigh students are stereotyped as being from New Jersey, white, wealthy, and heavy drinkers. While we work hard, we party hard, too.

Logan

90% of lehigh is jewish, the other 10% asian. The girls are too smart to be good looking. Lehigh is little to no fun by the time you're a midyear freshman and forever after that too.

Local residents seem to think we're all stuck up rich kids, and to be honest, some of us are.

It's kind of annoying to be honest because Lehigh kids, although very competitive, are a pretty cool group of people to be around.
