Lehigh University College of Arts and Sciences - Clara DeNicola
Principal, the10company
English, Journalism
"At Lehigh, there were many opportunities to express myself creatively which enabled me to develop my strengths, and helped me to focus on the direction that would suit me best. By developing my communications skills, whether by writing articles and op-eds on tight deadlines twice a week for the Brown & White, pitching Historic Bethlehem Inc.'s Shad Festival for coverage by local broadcast and print outlets, or writing a paper for my Old English class, communication was at the core."
Lehigh University College of Arts and Sciences - Michael Epstein
Corporate Partner, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP
Biological Sciences
"My education in CAS provided me with the skills and experience to tackle problems in different subject areas and to have the confidence to reach for solutions that may not be initially apparent. The undergraduate research that I conducted in the biology department gave me the opportunity to work as part of a team and taught me how to analyze facts and to exercise judgment about the next steps to take to try to reach the ultimate objective. I believe I graduated Lehigh with the academic wherewithal to pursue any desired career."
Lehigh University College of Arts and Sciences - Karen Shihadeh Schaufeld
Founder, All Ages Read Together

"What Lehigh taught me is that you have to look at a problem holistically. You can look at the nexus of history, law, a political system, and societal ills and you can synthesize all of that and start making solutions,"
Lehigh University College of Arts and Sciences - Peter Scott
Managing Director of Investment Banking Jefferies & Company, Inc.

Lehigh University College of Arts and Sciences - Robert Teufel

"Working on the Brown and White was probably the best internship I ever had. Had to be there on time -- had deadlines. It was not just about improving your writing skills; you learned work habits."
