Advice to future Lehigh students: "Get involved in a variety of activities outside of the classroom and meet as many different people as you can. Your experience here is what you make it. While my education certainly has provided many opportunities for me, my fondest Lehigh memories happened outside the classroom."
Why did you choose Lehigh?
I chose Lehigh for its combination of superior academics and vibrant social atmosphere. Lehigh students work extremely hard, but also know how to have a good time when work is over, which is important to me.
What was your favorite Lehigh moment?
My favorite Lehigh moment was the night Lehigh beat Duke in the NCAA tournament. All the students up on the hill congregated and walked down to the UC front lawn where other students were. This was the most connected I ever felt to the Lehigh student body, as everyone rallied together to show our Lehigh pride.
What was the highlight of your Lehigh experience?
The highlight of my Lehigh experience was a service trip to the Dominican Republic with my fraternity. We went down with 15 brothers and made a positive impact at a local school/orphanage. The experience was my first ever outside of the country, and gave me a chance to bond with my fraternity brothers without the stress of schoolwork and other activities.
