By Laura Melone
August 12, 2014 - 1:36pm

I know there are a bunch of packing lists for college freshmen, that places like Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Best Buy routinely distribute every year in August. Although these lists may be helpful for any regular collegiette ready to start her new college career, there are some extra special items that are absolutely necessary for a Lehigh freshman. Let me be clear: this list isn’t going to contain items like a mini-fridge, a desk lamp, or that weird plastic thing people put over their mattress to avoid coming in contact with the residue of ghosts of college freshmen past.

By Laura Melone
March 18, 2014 - 10:52am

If you go to Lehigh, it’s likely that you have many interests. You were probably captain of your sports team, an avid member of the debate team, had an overwhelming amount of community service hours, and managed to find time to ace all of your exams. But, in college, sometimes you feel forced to do one thing and one thing only, and that’s your major. You have all of your extra-curriculars surround around this field of study.
