5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: There are plenty of fun campus activities. There is also a coffee shop close by in town.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: The student life here is very upbeat and lively. A great college to meet new people.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: The fact that Lee is a Christian school makes it highly unique. Some students complain about curfews and no co-gender housing, etc. But personally, I think those things are what makes Lee a better place. The administrators care for us and only want the best for us. After all, those are some of the basic principles students at Lee should embrace.

Lee, however, does not have a set dress code. It would be to hard to actually implement it. Some take advantage of that though...

Lee has a beautiful campus and great people. It is really a home away from home.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: We have a gym facility, not very updated, but definitely works for those who are just trying to do the basics. We have groups and classes available for Zumba and Yoga and all that stuff. They have recently been made free for all.

People seem to really enjoy the library also. The dining hall is above average, I say. But the people who work for the meal provider are what makes the cafeteria more enjoyable. They are all sweet, hard-working people.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: There is something for everyone. You can hide in the library or hang in the PCSU

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The general consensus from students and faculty alike is that campus at Lee is very beautiful. The University president is continually adding new features to the campus. The brick buildings, white pillars, and well-maintained landscape give Lee a pleasing atmosphere. One of the buildings that Lee students are not as fond of is the library. It is an older structure that some students think is somewhat dingy and dark. Although many students utilize the Lee Squires Library, some choose to go to the Cleveland Public Library. The athletic facilities are all up-to-date. There is a workout room for all students to use that has weights, treadmills, step machines, and so on. There are also special athletic rooms for the athletes with all of the equipment they need for training.

As far as entertainment goes, students will need to go off campus. Besides a couple of coffee shops such as Jazzman's and Dunkin' Donuts, nothing is open late on campus. There are no theaters or bowling alleys on campus, either. Most students find entertainment in the Cleveland area or in Chattanooga.

"Green" Initiatives
Lee University has taken an initiative to designate trees around campus and in the Alumni Park. Another initiative Lee takes is to recycle on campus. Most of the offices have recycling bins with scheduled recycling pick-up times. However, the recycling is limited to offices; students do not have use of recycling bins on campus.

The rest of the dorm members dress up and go to the event to support their teammates.
