Lehigh: Political leanings and Japanese

<p>What would you say the ratio of Republicans to Democrats to Greens to Others is at Lehigh? Are people active in politics?</p>

<p>Does the Asian Studies program include Japanese (language, etc.)? If so, is it good?</p>

<p>Lehigh is a heavily represented Republican school. Alumni are having a fit that Michael Moore is scheduled to speak next week.</p>

<p>Sorry, can't help you out with the Asian Studies question, I'm in engineering.</p>

<p>Hill, can you comment on your general thoughts/feelings about the school/engineering program? Social scene heavily drinking based?</p>

<p>hill - same question as MrHappyFace - any info would be appreciated by D! Thanks</p>

<p>I like the school and the engineering program. It's kind of early to really judge (only been here since August) it but right now it's going well. I was able to opt out of a few classes with AP credit...and I'm kind of bored, but I'm sure it will get harder. </p>

<p>As far as the social scene - it is definitely a "sociable" school. If you plan to pledge to a frat/soro you'll be fine. If you don't drink, you might have a tough time here, unless you don't mind spending some time alone. It just depends what your priorities are. I know what I want to do (after college) so I don't plan to deviate from my schedule.</p>

<p>The best thing to do is come and visit the campus...and decide for yourself.</p>
