Lehigh's Greek Community is an integral part of residential life on the Lehigh campus. The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs fosters a community of students, faculty, parents, and alumni/ae dedicated to enhancing the values-based experience of Lehigh students.
An athlete from Eagle, Idaho, Jimil Ataman chose Lehigh after being recruited by our track and field coaches. When Ataman got injured her first year at Lehigh, she wasn’t sure what would lie ahead for her. She found that she was able to channel her energy to create a club where students can just focus on themselves—the meditation club. The club meets on Sundays, and each week Jimil writes a new meditation for discussion and gratitude. As she says, “Meditation has changed my life, and I watch it change the lives of everybody who comes to the club.”
Lehigh offers more than 150 clubs & organizations in a variety of categories. And if you can't find your perfect fit, you can start your own club!
