Rivalry Week 2017: Lehigh continues to mock Lafayette with banners

A popular Lehigh-Lafayette Rivalry Week tradition for students involves posting banners in front of their on- or off-campus homes. Many banners were stolen, presumably by Lafayette students.

Below are some of the banners that can be seen around Lehigh’s campus during Rivalry Week. The Brown and White welcomes submissions of your own Lafayette signs through our Twitter.
