How about that wrestling team? Have you heard?
New head coach Pat Santoro is leading his team to a standout season—19-1 in dual meets so far. Success is always welcome on the Lehigh wrestling mat, of course, but it's particularly sweet during this milestone season, Lehigh's 100th.
Lehigh's wrestling program has a storied history, and many are about you, our alumni. It's been a real pleasure to hear those stories retold during this landmark year. It makes me proud to be associated with Lehigh. Check out some of the highlights of those 100 years here
Of course, that's not all we have going on these days. Preparations are well underway for this year's Reunion weekend, in May—and we hope you're planning to return, even if it's not your official Reunion year. We've got plenty of great programs in the works. (Did you know the Kingston Trio will perform
at Lehigh for the first time in 50 years?)
And while we're always thrilled to have you come back to Lehigh, we have several programs on the slate in which we will pack up, hit the road, and bring Lehigh to you. The Florida Swing
, in February, will give our Florida contingent a chance to engage with Lehigh faculty and with each other. Young alumni
will get together in March for their next Down the Coast event, a day of service, in which Lehigh alumni work together for a local charity, and have a great time reconnecting with each other.
Also in March, the Career Networking Receptions
will help you make the most of your Lehigh family connections and develop your professional network—a vital career-building strategy, whether you're looking for a job right now or not. The CNRs will take place in seven cities around the country, from San Francisco to Washington, D.C.
There's a lot going on! Check out our list of upcoming events, and put Lehigh on your calendar! I hope to see you soon.
