Orientation FAQ


How do I sign up?

When should I sign up by?

  • Please register by August 7th.

Where will it be held?

  • Fall 2015 Orientation will be held in Neville Hall 001 with some activities in other places. It is within walking distance of lower campus, but students living at Saucon Village will need to take the free Lehigh shuttle to lower campus.

What if I am an international student?

How many students will be at Orientation?

  • Our fall orientation will bring out a couple hundred grad students from all 4 colleges and from all over the world. We will also have around 15 Orientation Ambassadors, current grad students who are there to give you some advice and help you jump in to life at Lehigh.

Is it mandatory?

  • Graduate Student Orientation is a useful, fun, and completely optional event. However, any student who will be working in a lab as part of an Assistantship must attend the Lab Safety Training. Also, all Teaching Assistants (TA) must complete the Teacher Assistant Training. Sign up for both on the registration link above.

What will Orientation include?

  • Orientation will help you begin your journey at Lehigh as a graduate student by describing the many academic, technological, career-related, cultural and administrative resources that will help you on your way. You will meet new friends in social settings, as well as develop some skills to prepare you for your role as a grad student. We also offer a guided tour of campus at the end of Orientation.
