Letter to Alumni:
What Interests You?

What fuels you each day? Your interests, your family, your career, and your life’s passion—they all enrich your story beyond measure.

Lehigh people are some of the most passionate, hardworking, creative, and interesting individuals I’ve ever met. I’ve seen firsthand the amazing things that can be accomplished when you pull together and use your ingenuity for the greater good. Whether crowd funding a student project, networking online, or planning a celebration, we are even stronger when we are united.

That’s why we want to connect you with others who share your interests. Lehigh Alumni Affinity Programs are created with the intention of bringing Lehigh alumni together. These groups span many different kinds of affinities, including professional, individual interest and student experience. Are you interested in law? Do you know all the words to the Old Silver Goblet? Or maybe you like to stay current on recent medical advances? We have thirteen affinity groups for you to choose from. By joining an affinity program, you will have the opportunity to connect with other Lehigh alumni across industries, identity-based groups, and more. Each year we evaluate the affinity programs and this year we have decided to add three new groups! The Accounting, Entrepreneurial, and Real Estate affinities are actively looking for new members—so don’t wait—join today!

Alumni continuously share with me that they find their connection to others within the Lehigh community to be one of the most valuable experiences of all. I urge you to take this to heart. Now is the time to share your talents and story with others.

We’ve got the fit for you.
