You don’t have to wait until graduation to create a lifelong relationship with Lehigh.
Lehigh University’s Association of Student Alumni (ASA) members spend their college years creating memories that will last a lifetime. Since 2002, the ASA has worked to create positive Lehigh experiences for students on campus so that they’ll stay connected and engaged long after graduation.
The ASA believes in tradition, which is why it also partners with the Office of Development and Alumni Relations to connect with the larger alumni family. Through the ASA, alumni are encouraged to create connections with current students that enrich their days during college and set the stage for their life long after.
