Submit a Lehigh Review Reflection!

All first-year students have the opportunity to submit a reflection to the Lehigh Review, an entirely student-produced journal containing some of the best scholarly writing by Lehigh undergraduates. Everyone who submits a reflection by Friday, October 25 will receive a 5x10 credit, and a lucky few students will have their reflections published in the journal, under the “Emerging Voices” section. Submissions must be between 300-500 words, typed and submitted to the staff of the Lehigh Review directly ( as a Word document. This year's prompts are:

  1. In Lisa Fenn's Carry On: A Story of Resilience, Redemption, and an Unlikely Family, we are presented with bonds that are formed between major cultural, class, and social boundaries. For this prompt, reflect on how you plan to do such boundary crossing during your first year at Lehigh.
  2. Lisa Fenn's Carry On: A Story of Resilience, Redemption, and an Unlikely Family is a story about overcoming odds and, more importantly, how to succeed while doing so. Reflect on a time when you faced insurmountable odds and how you overcame them.
