WHY LEHIGH? “I chose Lehigh for the strong academic programs offered in engineering, as well as the balance that I felt when walking onto campus. I feel that the students here are very smart and still make time to have fun or get involved on campus, which I think is very important in college and in life.”
ON THE COACHING STAFF: “Coach Conley has pushed me mentally and physically much farther than I thought I could ever go. He is creative with his workouts and training plan, and helps us to push ourselves and each other through every practice.”
