In the coming days, you’ll receive an e-mail from Lehigh’s alumni relations office, telling you about a new way to stay connected with each other and with Lehigh. It’s MyLehigh
, the new online home for Lehigh alumni.
On MyLehigh, you’ll find all of the Alumni Association’s online resources in an exciting new environment—dynamic, easy to navigate, and full of news and pictures of Lehigh alumni. Browse the Alumni Directory … set up your own profile … reconnect with old friends through Alumni Groups … make new connections around your interests … get your classmates’ latest news, and post some news of your own … register for an alumni event in your area … and get all the information you need about programs for Lehigh alumni.
All this (and more!) now happens in one convenient Web site. If you need something specific, you’ll find it quickly; if you’ve got some time to explore, you’ll be amazed at all the social networking resources available to you.
Of course, as with any social networking resource, the more you use MyLehigh, the better the site will be—so get in there and make it yours. Share your information. Join the groups that interest you—and make some of your own. Send messages to a few long-lost friends.
Get connected! It’s what MyLehigh is all about.
You’ll receive your Lehigh ID Number (your LIN) in a postcard or e-mail in just a couple weeks, and that will give you access to all of the site’s members-only features. But you can take a look at most of the site right now, and if you just can’t wait to become a MyLehigh member, get in touch with the Alumni Helpdesk, and they’ll get you connected right away. Instructions are on the site.
You can find the site at mylehigh.lehigh.edu
—or just a couple clicks away from the front of the Lehigh Web site, at Lehigh.edu
While you’re there, please let us know what you think! We will be working constantly to improve MyLehigh, and to make it a dynamic social networking tool for Lehigh alumni. Rest assured, we will
take your suggestions to heart.
I’ll see you online!
