Diverse community in the beautiful small town of Cleveland with friendly students and dedicated professors. The campus is well maintained and the lawn ever green, with bustling life of students playing different sporting activities around campus. I made lifetime friends and the selflessness of the professors left a lasting impression on my life.

Lee University is a Christian college this is main reasons I chose lee University. In my opinion, Lee University has thought me that volunteering and providing financial aids are great contributions. I have learnt that contributing by donating time and money to educational systems, and by mentoring underprivileged children to help further their education. I'm learning to give back to society through services as a Christian should do by donating to churches, charities, educational programs and anyone else who is in need of help. I have not found much things, I don't like about Lee University, We need more parking, and Caribbean cooks...

It has overall been a good experience. I wish I had been advised a little bit more.
