Summer Institute Information

Lehigh University Campus

Welcome to the 2018 Summer Institute! This site provides information for current students (and prospective students wondering how this all works!) as an overview of all that you need for the upcoming Summer Institute. We cover registration, payment, housing, transportation, and everything else that you need to order to attend and get the most out of your experience while at Lehigh University.

The 2018 Summer Institute will be held on the campus of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA. 
Cpsy 452 and 453, only, will be taught at the American College of Greece in Athens.


It is required that all students arriving for Session One attend Orientation.   It will be held on Monday, June 25, 1:15 p.m. at Linderman Library, Room 200.  This will be after your first class sesssion.  Materials about classes and locations, your stay at Lehigh, social networking events and faculty advising will be discussed.  Orientation also provides a chance for you to meet with fellow students in a more informal setting, learn about Lehigh's vast resources and provides an opportunity to get expert assistance from the University's IT staff. 

Session 2 Orientation Orientation packets will be delivered to your course location.
 Session Three Orientation packets will be delivered to your course location.
