My school is so diverse- so many people come from different backgrounds, places (even internationally), and places in their relationship with Christ. Everyone here is so inviting and accepting. If I am sitting alone, it won't be five minutes until someone approaches me and asks if they can join me. I never have to worry about finding kind loyal friends, caring professors, or a loving stranger. There are so many opportunities to serve and get to grow in Christ in fellowship with compassionate friends!
Review Lee University
Lee University is wonderful! I have enjoyed the past two semesters of living on campus in a community style dorm with my great friends. The best experiences are getting to know everyone and playing racquetball, volleyball, and basketball till 1 AM on the weekends. Our school is unique because it centers our education with christ and allows us to openly worship him every day wether in chapel, in class, or in our dorms during small groups. I would definitely choose Lee University again, my experiences here have gone above and beyond what I could have ever expected.
I have loved Lee University since the moment I stepped foot on the campus. It is a beautiful campus with even better people. The administration, professors, and students are in my opinion the best in the world! This college has an amazing atmosphere and I would not rather be anywhere else.
