The South Side of Bethlehem is many things. It is located in the Lehigh Valley, bounded by the rushing Lehigh River and scenic South Mountain, a monument to the historic power of Bethlehem Steel, and a lively multiethnic community with eclectic shops and restaurants.
It is also home to Lehigh University and a creative inspiration to our students. University Communications and Public Affairs sponsored a photo contest to find out how students see the South Side. This gallery consists of top picks from the photos that students submitted. It is a testament to the creativity of our students and the power and beauty of the South Side of Bethlehem.
