Hallmark Events

Each year brings numerous happenings to Lehigh, from university events to arts and culture opportunities, athletics events to long-standing traditions that date back decades. It simply would not be a year at Lehigh without Family Weekend, Founder’s Weekend, Lehigh-Lafayette and so much more.



An annual celebration of our graduates, Commencement brings the university together on the Goodman Campus as we send our newest alumni out into the world. Learn more about Commencement >



Known as The Rivalry, the Lehigh-Lafayette football game is the most-played college football series in all of college football. The two teams first took to the gridiron in 1884, a mere one year after standardized football rules were established. Learn more about Lehigh-Lafayette >
