One graduate encouraged civil discourse on campus about social, cultural and political topics. One spearheaded the creation of an internship for Lehigh students from diverse backgrounds to work in government. Others helped tutor students in the community and lead after-school activities for elementary and middle-school students.  

This only begins to tell the story of the graduates of the Class of 2023—a diverse group of student leaders, athletes, activists and scholars from across Lehigh’s colleges.

The undergraduates who are profiled here provide a window into Lehigh’s Class of 2023. Their stories reflect the varied experiences, achievements and aspirations among the students receiving their degrees.
