Information for Families
Lehigh is committed to partnering with parents and families of Lehigh students to assist in their success and education. The Office of First-Year Experience provides resources and programs to assist them in the support of each student’s growth at Lehigh and also to provide support to our new students as they transition into college life. We recognize the important role parents play in their student’s transition process, and therefore want to help families with their transition as well. We are excited to have a healthy level of involvement from parents and other family members as we seek to provide support for the student’s academic, professional and personal development.
This guide is intended to help the transition to Lehigh, with special emphasis on the services available to students. It will enable parents to advise students as they navigate the complexities of the first-year college experience. Included is information about student support services, from academic advising and career counseling, to student involvement and battling homesickness. Everything in this guide is designed to enable students to make the most of the Lehigh experience and to their full potential.
Please let us know if we can be of further assistance or provide additional information.
