Student Life

You are here

The Graduate Life Office (GLO) exists to enhance the academic, personal, and professional development of Lehigh graduate students through providing a range of programs, activities, events, and workshops, while also creating a community of graduate students.  The programs that the GLO office sponsors aim to enhance student strengths and foster growth edges, through events targeted at professional development, research and writing, and higher education.  This is achieved while creating a space for students from different disciplines to create bonds and support systems.  

The GLO is housed in the Packer House at 217 W. Packer Avenue.  Most programs are on hold right now due to the pandemic.  The Packer House is home to many of the events that the GLO runs throughout the year.  The Packer House is also open for graduate students to reserve for their own club events.  Some of the events that the GLO host are: Orientation, Career Services Workshops, Women’s Exchange Luncheons, Tuesdays at 10, Graduate Student Appreciation Week, Dissertation Boot Camp, Teacher Development Series, and Cultural Breakfasts.

The GLO Office is open by appointment as some are working remotely.  We are always happy to set up an appt and zoom with you! Email
