Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA was established in 1865 through a donation given by Asa Packer, an American businessman, who was, at the time, the president of Lehigh Valley Railroad Company. The site chosen by Packer for the new university was originally a railroad junction.

The university was designed to focus primarily on science education and mathematics. During its first year, it admitted 39 boys who came from various counties in Pennsylvania with a few coming from neighboring states.

The Lehigh University offers several hundred undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degree programs through its four colleges: College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business and Economics, College of Education, and P.C. College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. 40 academic departments are divided among these four colleges offering programs in business, arts and humanities, engineering, natural sciences, social sciences and education. The university also offers a little over 20 cross-disciplinary programs designed to encourage students to explore other fields of study.

In athletics, Lehigh University is particularly known for its wrestling program which has produced a number of All-American and nationally ranked wrestlers for several decades. The university also has a well-known rivalry with Lafayette College in American Football. Both teams have been playing against each other at least once a year since the late 1890s.

Notable Lehigh University graduates include former United States congressmen Carville Benson and Charlie Dent and Thai Deputy Prime Minister Pongpol Adireksarn. Major Ralph Cheli of the United States Air Force, who was awarded a Medal of Honor for his services during World War II, was also from Lehigh. Other notable alumni include William Amelio, CEO of Lenovo Group Limited; James Ward Packard, co-founder of Packard Motor Company; Lee Lacocca, former chairman of the Chrysler Corporation; Ali Al-Naimi, present Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources of Saudi Arabia; and Joe Morgenstern, a Pulitzer Prize winner.
