The oldest existing publication at Lehigh, the Epitome was first published in 1875 and continues to today.

At a time when many universities are discontinuing production of yearbooks because of lack of funds and interest, the Epitome stands strong, capturing the memories and history of Lehigh through a new century.

About Us

The Epitome is a student-run organization which receives no university funding and as a result, depends on revenue from book sales and parent messages.

In 2003, the Epitome moved into Coppee Hall along with the entire journalism department. After an extensive multi-million dollar renovation, one of Lehigh’s oldest buildings now features some of the most advanced computing and technology resources available on campus. Once produced mainly by hand, all aspects of the yearbook from page layout and design to photography are now done 100 percent digitally.

At a time when many universities are discontinuing production of yearbooks because of lack of funds and interest, the Epitome stands strong, capturing the memories and history of Lehigh through a new century.

Currently, Linda Lipko (lcl1@lehigh.edu) serves as Advisor to the Epitome, and Kathy Throne (kat404@lehigh.edu) as Assistant Advisor.
