Your department will handle any of your academic concerns, including departmental assistantship awards.

Your fee will cover all three meals on Orientation Day, along with great giveaways and, of course, lots of important information to make your transition to Lehigh and the Bethlehem area seamless! This orientation is not mandatory but we encourage you to participate.  It's fun and informative, you'll also meet other new grad students as well as returning grad students that serve as Grad Ambassadors.
