Go: The Campaign for Lehigh: Forging Ahead

These are unprecedented times for both the world and for Lehigh. But, in true Lehigh fashion, our community continues to take action to generously support Lehigh and assure its continued excellence.

We’re transforming residential life and learning at Lehigh with a new housing complex, opened in spring 2021. Singleton, Hitch, and Maida Houses — named for the families that generously supported them — provide modern, flexible spaces designed for the way students live, learn, and connect today.

Shared spaces in residence halls

Shared spaces include kitchens on each floor for residents to enjoy.

Adorned with more than 4,400 signatures of Lehigh community members, one of the final beams of the Health, Science, and Technology (HST) building was placed in September 2020. The beam represents the commitment of faculty, students, staff and alumni to what promises to be a center for world-changing interdisciplinary research — and the home of the new College of Health.

In spite of the pandemic, Lehigh’s network continues to flourish. Students and alumni connected at virtual events like Mountain Talks, trivia nights, happy hours, the Rally, Founder’s Celebration and Family Week. And more than 428 alumni and 48 employers have joined Lehigh Connects since March 2020 to help with career networking — 195 jobs have been posted!

When someone passionate about Lehigh seeks out a way to make an impact and then takes action, that’s a “GO MOMENT.” We are pleased to highlight just a few of the donors helping to move Lehigh forward.
