About Lehman Stories

Lehman Stories is a multimedia compilation of stories, blogs and videos that highlight students' individual paths to success at Lehman College. These personal narratives showcase the many ways the Lehman community has had a positive impact on the lives of our students.

In these stories, Lehman students are showcased on-camera, while many more are involved in the behind-the-scenes production process, from conception to final edits, through inspiring, hands-on training opportunities and internships.

Check out Lehman Stories to learn more about life on campus, then register for an Information Session and Campus Tour and take the first step to creating your own Lehman success story. Consider a donation to support our students.
