A Welcome Message from President Joseph J. Helble '82

A message sent to all undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff.

Dear Members of the Lehigh Community,

With the start of the fall semester around the corner, this is a time of transition and excitement for the entire Lehigh community. I am personally grateful for the warm welcome you have given me, and I am appreciative of the hard work of so many this summer to prepare for a safe and successful start to the academic year.

Students have begun to move in and South Mountain is starting to look and feel vibrant with people—a truly welcome sight. If you see me walking across campus, please be sure to stop and say hello. Over the course of the next several weeks and months, we will have many more opportunities to get to know one another.

I look forward to meeting with students, faculty, staff, alumni, and other members of our community, and to hearing your thoughts on the future of our great university. Here’s to a safe and successful academic year for all of us.

With appreciation,

Joseph J. Helble ’82
