Lehigh Plans Business College Expansion
The Morning Call: "A place for young companies to grow. Big data labs. Technological-equipped classrooms that will attract students and business executives who want to learn about real-time business trends and where those trends are going. That’s the idea behind Lehigh University’s newest plans to expand the College of Business in south Bethlehem, a stone’s throw from the historic South Side Business District ... The center will take up the entire third floor where Lehigh will offer immersive and research-based programs about today’s business trends and more. The expansion will also allow Lehigh to introduce a business incubator in partnership with the Baker Center for Entrepreneurship."
"The project comes as Lehigh undertakes an ambitious plan to increase student enrollment and programs, including the new College of Health. Last year, Lehigh broke ground on the Health, Science & Technology building, which is scheduled to open in 2021 ... Also, SouthSide Commons, a new five-story student living facility at Brodhead and Packer avenues, officially opened last year, providing apartment-style living for 428 students. There are 5,178 undergraduate and 1,775 graduate students, according to Lehigh’s web site."
