LU Diplomats

Welcome to the Lehigh University Diplomats Page!

The LU Diplomats focus on interviewing international students via Skype and welcoming international students to Lehigh, both before they arrive and once on campus. On this site, you can get to know the members of our club.

We encourage you to contact us and hopefully you will find a member who shares your home country, intended major or area of interest. We are here to make the admissions process smoother for you and will try to answer any questions you have about Lehigh.

If you are already a Lehigh student and wish to get involved with us on campus, please contact Winnie Gu at yug219@lehigh.edu. We recruit members for our club year round and would love to have your involvement!
