Online festivities kick off Friday, Oct. 2, with Lehigh's Founder's Celebration

Each October since 1879, Lehigh has commemorated Founder Asa Packer and the magnitude of his impact with a celebration.

Lehigh is committed to mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and protecting the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, as well as visiting alumni and families and our neighbors in the greater Bethlehem area. While this work prohibits large-scale gatherings on campus, we are excited to be planning a virtual Founder's Celebration and Family Week this fall.

Join the Lehigh community at 4:00 p.m. ET on October 2 to watch the broadcast of the Virtual Founder’s Celebration and Family Week kickoff, featuring remarks from student leaders, the unveiling of the Class of 2021’s numbers at the Clayton University Center, and a milestone “beam topping” at Lehigh’s new Health, Science, and Technology (HST) building.

The Rossin College is hosting the following virtual events:
