Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science and the CHOICES (Charting Horizons and Opportunities in Careers in Engineering and Science) outreach program.

Great South Side Sale

For nearly 20 years, Lehigh’s move-out collection drive has resulted in one of our most successful yearly community events - the Great South Side Sale. From a first year tally of $500 to the latest grand total of $21,000, the sale and its revenue have grown from a simple way to recycle unwanted items to a great way to connect students, faculty and staff with the local community. Sales from the event benefit children and youth programs in South Bethlehem.
