Two 5th year students in combined Civil Engineering and Architecture have a research project on display in Fair-Mart library just behind the main elevators on the first floor. Pei Pei Yang and Bo Johns were recipients of a Strohl Senior Thesis grant to produce two models of concept design for the waterfront area in between the Fahy Street Bridge and the Hill to Hill (Highway 378) Bridge, connecting south side Bethlehem to north side Bethlehem via pedestrian bridges, while also increasing the recreational use of the river side land. The project will be on display in Fair- Mart until Tuesday, December 3rd.
Here is an 8 minute video interview with the students:
More about the Strohl Grants (from College of Arts & Sciences website)
Made possible by a generous gift from Dale S. Strohl ’58, the the Office of the Vice President for Research and the College of Arts and Sciences offers funding to encourage students to engage in independent inquiry, artistic creation, and scholarship, under faculty supervision. The Dale S. Strohl ’58 Awards support research in the Humanities and Social Sciences for students working with any Lehigh faculty member. These grants are intended to expand the experiences, perspectives, and skills of our students through involvement in research. Travel, research supplies and other valid expenses may be reimbursed up to the limit of an individual grant. Undergraduate Research Grants may fund up to $3,000 and, if possible, should be combined with funding from other sources (i.e., from faculty advisors, department chairs, center directors…). Senior Thesis Grants are open to current juniors and may fund up to $5,000. Research should be completed within one year of receipt of the award. The grant recipient will then submit a brief report on the results of the project to the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs.

Continued gratitude to Dale S. Strohl, ’58 for his support of student learning at Lehigh University!
