Absolutely love this school! When most of my friends that go to other colleges refer to having to go to school, they usually speak about it in a dreading and negative way. When I think about being back on Lee campus, I am always excited to be there and get to gain more knowledge. The professors are outstanding and very personable. I feel that the education is definitely worth the price that I am paying for school. The campus itself is absolutely beautiful, and I love just getting to walk around campus looking at the architecture and landscape. I would recommend this school to anyone.

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!
