ilLUminating Your Path to College 201

For Rising Seniors

Friday, July 28, 2023

Rising seniors, we’re excited for you to spend the afternoon with us on campus! We have prepared an afternoon where prospective students will take an in-depth look at the college application, network with Lehigh University departments and engage in meaningful conversations with current Lehigh Students. Check-in will begin at 12:30 p.m. EDT and programming will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m. EDT with an information session that covers topics including:

  • How to Stand Out in Your College Essay
  • Should I Interview for College?
  • Creating a Squad and Navigating Letters of Recommendation
  • What is the Difference between Regular Decision and Early Decision?

Next, visitors will participate in an interactive case study of previous Lehigh applications. Here you can learn about how each part of an application plays an important role in Lehigh’s holistic review.  

After an in-depth look at the college application, programming will shift gears to allow prospective students the opportunity to envision what their life as Lehigh students would look like. We encourage visitors to engage with representatives from offices across campus at our Lehigh University Campus Expo. Afterwards, we will host a Student Panel where visitors can ask current Lehigh students about their experiences at Lehigh.  

Those registered for “ilLUminating Your Path to College 201” will be invited to attend an optional Admissions Information Session and Asa Packer Campus tour the morning of the event.  

Event details including a full agenda and parking information will be emailed on Monday, July 24, 2023.
