Greek Heritage Initiative - Plaque Unveiling

Since its inception on campus in 1872, Greek life has played an integral role in the Lehigh community — socially, academically and philanthropically. Our Greek heritage is an essential part of who we are as an institution, and Lehigh’s history would be incomplete without the Greek community’s contributions.

The Greek Heritage Initiative emerged from conversations among members of the Greek alumni community, President Alice Gast, and other university leaders.

The Greek Heritage Plaque Program celebrates the legacy of Greek houses on campus. In 2009, we began installing historical plaques on houses, starting with the oldest. Chapters receiving recognition this year include:

Pi Lambda Phi
Theta Xi
Delta Upsilon
Phi Kappa Theta
Sigma Alpha Mu
Alpha Tau Omega

The reception and unveiling will take place during Reunion Weekend. Different from previous years – there's truly something for everyone! Click to learn more and register.
