Fun Facts

  • Alright, sports fans. Pick a side: Lehigh University or Lafayette?!? These two schools have been fierce rivals for over a century, since 1884!
  • Ever have a dream where you're flying down the street while still in your bed? At Lehigh University, that dream is spectacularly realized, with their annual Bed Races! Teams of five (four pushers and a rider) send a decorated dorm bed "car" careening down Library Drive!
