Lehigh University: Special Visit Opportunities

Get an in-depth look at life as a Lehigh student as you spend a day on campus through an open house or one of our other special visit opportunities. Events include open houses, interviews and activities such as meeting with current students and faculty, attending class and presentations by associate deans of each college.

College Interviews

Lehigh interviews are designed for students who have specific questions about Lehigh best addressed in an individual setting and/or for those who want to provide context for information that will be in their application. All interviews at Lehigh are evaluative and thus become part of an application, but are not required for admission.

Students who chose to interview on campus will meet either with an admissions counselor or Admissions Fellow, a selective group of trained current seniors. We offer on-campus interviews to high school students beginning in March of their junior year through December of their senior year. For staffing purposes, on-campus interviews must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance through the Admissions Events Calendar.

Students who cannot make it to campus or cannot return to interview may be able to meet with a Lehigh representative near their hometown or school in the spring of their junior year or in the summer or fall of their senior year. Check Lehigh in Your Area to see regional interview opportunities.

Junior Open House

Lehigh University hosts an open house for high school juniors each Spring.

Junior Open House is designed as an introductory look at Lehigh University for prospective students who are beginning their college search process. Junior Open House allows prospective students and their families the opportunity to learn from the associate deans of each college about Lehigh University’s academic opportunities and from staff and students about student life, admissions and financial aid. Visitors will have the opportunity to tour campus and visit campus life offices. Advance registration is requested.

Senior Open House

Lehigh University hosts an open house for high school seniors each fall.

Senior Open House is designed as an in-depth look at Lehigh University. Senior Open House allows prospective students and their families the opportunity to attend a session specifically for the Lehigh University college in which they are interested: the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business and Economics or the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science. Senior Open House will also provide more information about student life, admissions and financial aid, an optional campus tour and a fantastic opportunity to speak with specific departments and faculty at our academic programs and campus life fair. Advance registration is requested. Learn more about Senior Open House >
