Pittsburgh Post Gazette (Circulation: 248,176)
Tech Firms Focused on "Small" Headed to Big Conference

Lehigh was mentioned in an article on Pennsylvania investments in the emerging high-tech industry called nanotechnology, which involves the creation and manipulation of materials so small that 100,000 of them would be no bigger than the width of a hair. Overall, the state estimates that it's invested $42 million in nanotechnology firms and research since 1999, with the bulk going to Lehigh and Penn State.

The New York Sun (Circulation: 60,000)
The Brown and White recently reported on a "protest" some students staged on Lehigh's campus. When professor of political science Ted Morgan's students refused to take his midterm exam, he was not completely surprised. Students were offered two alternatives: they could take the exam, or they could write an individual assessment of why they protested in light of what they learned about 1960s movements. The students were also asked to give a full report on what steps they took to put what they learned into action.

Vonnegut Offers Advice to Lehigh

Standing at the lectern with his moppish hair and drooping mustache, novelist Kurt Vonnegut Jr. asked the Lehigh University graduating Class of 2004 for a show of hands Monday morning. Vonnegut, looking out over the graduates on a glorious morning, observed, '"If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.'' Vonnegut, whose writings are filled with sardonic wit and an unforgiving combination of fate and luck, most of it usually bad, offered observations that were weighty and whimsical, global and minute, banal and insightful to the nearly 4,000 people who filled the stadium.
