It's a fun school,Quite BrightFinance
It's a fun school, but there's definitely a party atmosphere. That being said, it's easy to find a great and cohesive group of friends regardless of partying. As someone who doesn't party, no one will blink twice or look down on you for not doing so.

The business and engineering schools are pretty good.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
The business and engineering schools are pretty good. Lots of academic flexibility. But, if youre not on a sports team or in greek life the school social life absolutely sucks. Its cliquey and worse than highschool. Take it from someone who wishes they went somewhere else. If youre not all in on Greek life, go somewhere else. Unless youre a girl because then you can get into parties anyways. But even then half of girls are in sororities so you may still feel excluded anyways. Greek life changes a lot of people for the worse. Don't get me wrong there are a lot of great people in greek life but the overall culture just flat out sucks. I hate Lehigh. I cant wait until I get out. And despite how Lehigh sells themselves as a global and internationally diverse school, good luck getting jobs outside of NYC, Philadelphia, and the Midwest. Its an overrated school.

Don't expect AC in dorms at any point.Super BrilliantMechanical Engineering
Don't expect AC in dorms at any point. Sub-par dining hall food with lack of other options. Most of the TA's in the Business and Engineering Schools don't speak English well. Professors are not required by the school to comply with academic accommodations given for medical reasons as it is up to the professor's discretion. Grade deflation is rampant at Lehigh, so expect to do poorly regardless of the grade listed on Course Site. The Lehigh Health Center is great at misdiagnosing people and has absurdly poor hours when trying to schedule around class times (only open during classes and will cancel your appointment if you're late by even 5 minutes). All potential Greek members beware, Lehigh is using any excuse to get rid of greek chapters in place of dorms without central AC for freshmen. Parking permits are severely overpriced and you cannot park other places on campus using whatever pass you purchase. Police are more concerned with busting off-campus parties than stopping the muggings and gunshots near off-campus housing. Off-campus housing is extremely overpriced considering the renovations that need to be done. The campus itself is beautiful, but that is one of the few redeeming qualities of Lehigh as the price of attending continues to skyrocket without any noticeable improvements for students.
