Party school reputation

How valid it the reputation? Yes, I know everyone is different, but will a serious engineering student be able to find interesting, fun people who are NOT drunk?

    it's reputation as a party school is certainly warranted. but work hard, play hard. don’t instantly assume someone who parties isn’t dedicated to their studies. most people at lehigh party, and most are serious engineering students, the two aren’t mutually exclusive.

    Having graduated from both Lehigh and MIT, I would say, sure, Lehigh has its share of partiers. But, on balance, there were far more "distractions" living in Cambridge/Boston then there ever was at Lehigh....and I don't hear people knocking MIT for *that*.
