The Rally is a long-standing tradition at Lehigh University. Every year, the incoming class is adopted by the class who were introduced to Lehigh 50 years prior.
Celebrate one of Lehigh’s longest-standing traditions.
Since 1945, alumni who matriculated 50 years prior have adopted that year’s first-year students to celebrate the brown and white at the annual Rally. Come celebrate Lehigh through spirited events like student performances, the alumni class adoption, and the colorful parade of classes, where alumni representatives wield their class flags and first-year students reveal the flag for their class.
Enjoy the 78th annual incoming student and alumni Rally!
