I have loved my time at Lee University. I have had wonderful professors and the campus and surrounding area is beautiful with lots to do. There is a wide range of student diversity and lots of career choices and activities to get involved with. However, the dorms could use some major updating! When compared to dorms at other colleges that friends attend, Lee's housing/dorms and below par. My parents like that this college seems to be safe and isn't known to be a big party scene place. The campus food is just normal college food, nothing special. I have made some great friends, while at Lee, from other states and countries. I am glad that chose Lee University but wish that the tuition was a little more affordable to reduce the amount of loans that I will have once I graduate.

Lee is an amazing place to go to school. Such a gorgeous campus, caring professors, and an amazing emphasis on spirtual growth. Lot's of strict rules, but what else would you expect from a Christian university? If you want to go to a school where you can grow closer in your relationship with Christ while working towards your career and educational goals, then this place is definitely a good fit for you!
My experience at Lee University has been priceless. I came into my undergrad with high expectations and I cannot stress enough how Lee went beyond those expectations. No matter who you are, you automatically feel comfortable and at home on campus. All the staff and my fellow peers root for one another. Everyone sought to encourage, challenge, and care for one another, both within and outside of academics. This support was much appreciated. The classes and professors offer a challenging and fulfilling academic curriculum, preparing students in their professional careers. Classes are relatively small so that students created strong relationships with one another and the professor and could really get the most out of the class. The athletics and clubs offered are superb as well, as there is something for everyone. There is also much diversity on campus and people/clubs have a chance to share their culture with students so that greater appreciation for diversity is fostered.
