Summer Classes and Events Announced at ESU’s Lehigh Valley Center

Posted by: Valentina Caval on June 13, 2013, No Comments

In addition to the many undergraduate and graduate courses available this summer at ESU on campus and online, ESU is also hosting courses and events at its new Lehigh Valley Center at 60 West Broad Street in historic Bethlehem.

ESU will offer several courses that may be taken for credit by current ESU students and that are also open to the general public at an affordable cost. Among these are a Tai Chi course beginning on July 20 and a history course beginning July 23 that will bring the history of the Lehigh Valley alive through field trips and lectures at historic locales. 

Beginning this July and continuing through the end of August, ESU’s Lehigh Valley Center will also host a short-lecture series featuring professors from the Business Management, Health and History departments. Each brief lecture will be followed by refreshments and an informal round table discussion hosted, weather-permitting, on the Lehigh Valley Center’s patio. These events are open to the general public at no cost.

In addition, as part of historic Bethlehem’s continuing ArtWalk series, ESU’s Lehigh Valley Center will host a Kids’ Corner on its front patio on June 29, July 27 and August 31 from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m.  Kids’ Corner will feature pottery painting, drawing contests, and interactive performances by the Pennsylvania Youth Theater. To learn more about these and other upcoming events that are open to the public, visit our home page at and click on “Events.” 

Meeting spaces within ESU’s Lehigh Valley Center are also available for community, business, or organization events to use at a nominal cost.   Whether it’s a small board meeting or a large conference, each room in the Lehigh Valley Center space features state-of-the-art equipment designed to meet the needs of our students and our guests: some of the amenities include smart podiums, dual-projector screens for video and computer presentations, video-conferencing abilities, and a computer lab with 35 work stations. 

To learn about undergraduate and graduate degree completion programs at the facility, visit  ESU’s Lehigh Valley Center for a free information session on any Monday evening between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.
