Legacy Program

The Lehigh Legacy Program

Q: What is a Lehigh Legacy? 

A: Any prospective Lehigh student who has a mother, father, grandparent, aunt, uncle, and/or sibling who attends/attended Lehigh. 

As the son, daughter, niece, nephew, brother, sister, or grandchild of a Lehigh Alumnus, you've probably heard dozens of stories about "their Lehigh," …Lehigh vs. Lafayette football games, Lehigh Engineers,  tough academics, weekends on "the Hill," and of course the "Lehigh Family" - …but have you experienced Lehigh for yourself?

Lehigh's Office of Admissions is delighted to offer a special event just for Lehigh alumni and their family members who are beginning the college search process!

The 2016 Lehigh Legacy Weekend Program
Friday, October 7 and Saturday, October 8, 2016

The Lehigh Legacy Program will provide students and parents the opportunity to learn more about the college admissions process, experience the Lehigh Spirit, and hear about the experiences of current students.

 This year, the Legacy Program will take place during Family Weekend, Homecoming, and Gala Weekend. Please visit the Family Weekend website for details on room blocks and other events. 

 Registration will be available in early August.
