Favorite thing about Lehigh: a community that has supported and encouraged me to ‘make my environment a product of me’
Favorite thing about Gryphoning: Spending time with my residents (in Umoja) in and out of programs and being able to empower them to make Lehigh and their experience a product of themselves and the change they want to see.
Favorite thing about living in a residence hall: Since I’ve lived on campus all 6 years I’ve been at Lehigh (yup, 17 to 23) I would have to say it’s a fun-filled experience where community is fostered but also where my safety is maintained
