4 College Sophomore

Academics: To be in the Comm Arts field at Lees-McRae is en of the greatest experiences I'd have to say the students ll get along, and the professors give great one on one advice that you normally wouldn't see in the other majors. I feel that being an art student at this school is just fantastic.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics are wonderful the professors get to know you on a personal level and they even will offer to have meeting with you way outside of class time. The workload is never something that can't be managed, and if it becomes too much a quick chat with the professors is something that can be arranged.

5 College Senior

Academics: Awesome, the Finance and Accounting teachers are great.

3 College Freshman

Academics: It's great. I thoroughly enjoy it. The workload is challenging but it's worthit.
