Lehigh Love

If you haven't picked it up already... I have lots of Lehigh pride! (After all, I was a cheerleader.) Here I am with Sara and Corinne in front of the Robert Indiana LOVE sculpture outside one the libraries while we were back on campus Saturday.

Lehigh University is located on a beautiful mountainside in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania for those unfamiliar with the school. During my tour in high school I fell in love with the Gothic stone buildings and wasn't deterred by all of the hillside stairways. Walking back from class was a workout everyday.

Our first stop in Bethlehem was the Goosey Gander II, better known as "The Goose," home of my favorite deli sandwiches. It's one of the most popular eateries around Lehigh and there is just about always a line out the door at peak lunch hours. I first learned of it freshman year when my economics professor used their popular "Guna Melt" (tuna melt) in a supply and demand example. I was so intrigued I immediately learned where it was and the rest is history.

It's been 4 years since Sara and I have been regular customers and the owner Tony STILL knows our favorite orders when we return to campus! "#1 Deli" - Corned Beef, Swiss Cheese and Cole Slaw on Rye - toasted with Russian dressing.

With that amazing sandwich I always have a 32 oz. fountain soda. I lived on diet soda in college - since I've weened myself off. There are definitely a few meals that wouldn't be complete without a bubbly soda, so exceptions are made.

After lunch we headed to the campus bookstore. The selection is small and not much has changed, but this Polo section has been added in recent years.

Sara and Corinne opted for this cute white hat. I'm regretting not getting one myself!

I couldn't resist this picture. I've always wished they had a Vineyard Vines Lehigh tote. The guys luck out on this one. So jealous of all of you that attend large universities with unlimited amounts of gear available. It's just not fair!



  1. I have worn my college vineyard vines bag to the bone! I've washed it and used it every day. I hope they carry a Lehigh one soon! You deserve it!

  2. A polo section? Goodness, you are lucky!

  3. OMGoodness, I went to a school near Lehigh and used to go to parties there...Goosey Gander was my favorite place to go between classes for lunch!

  4. Those gothic buildings are beautiful!

  5. Lehigh students were on my cruise! We sat with a few at dinner, and they were soooo much fun! Great conversation! Such an awesome school!
