Sustainability
Where Passion Meets Grit

SustainabLEHIGH Prelusion Trip

You are here

 

Are you looking to meet new people, be outdoors, and have fun?  Are you curious about the inner workings of environmental sustainability?                  

Join us on the SustainabLEHIGH trip from August 19th - 22nd, 2019!  Incoming freshmen and transfer students can jump start their education and college experience through SustainabLEHIGH, a pre-orientation experience, whose mission it is to introduce students to all facets of environmental sustainability.  As part of the SustainabLEHIGH adventure, you will explore the Lehigh Valley through biking, canoeing, visiting a farm, and camping on our very own island. Not only will you be having non-stop fun, but the learning experience and connections provide you with a strong foundation for future leadership in green and sustainable initiatives at Lehigh.

As part of this exciting 3-day adventure, you will:

  • Meet like-minded students, campus leaders and sustainability champions

  • Camp on your very own island (seriously!)

  • Bike and canoe down the Lehigh River
