College Life Rating

Campus life at Lehigh is great. The Hill was a great place to hang out on weekends and I always felt very safe. Going to sporting events was fun although the lack of transportation to the other side of the hill could be improved. The campus police and local police force always seemed to have it out for Lehigh students. Considering it's a school that's made a name for having a fun on-campus and off-campus scene you'd think the poilice would be a little bit more understadning.

College Life 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!
