    Read about the expectations Lee has for their students before you commit to going here. They have some pretty strict rules.

    Lee University is fantastic if you give it a chance. Because it is not widely known, many automatically write it off their list. However, if you go to visit Lee it will become clear how wonderful the small college can be.

    There are lots of different rules and things that you will have to get use to and have to keep in mind before deciding to go here. First, all students are required to sign the community covenant which states various things like students are not allowed to drink alcohol or smoke (even if they are of age), nor are they allowed to engage in premarital sex or sexual acts. If you are found doing one of these things, you can become kicked out. For freshman (less than 30 hours), you aren't supposed to leave the dorm building after 12 on weekdays and 1 on weeknights (although you get 2 skips). The RAs actually check each room each night. If you're not a freshman, the curfew is technically 3AM. (I've heard of people not being able to get in the doors after 3AM, but I've never had a problem) Also, there is room check each week for cleanliness for all grades. You get 2 skips, after that it's a $50 fine. For the dorms, the opposite sex is only allowed in the lobby of the first floor. For on campus apartments and homes, the opposite sex is only allowed in the living room/kitchen area (so not into the rooms) and they are only allowed during visitation hours (except they can come in your room for move-in day). All students are required to do 80 hours of service before graduating. Students are required to go to 70% of all chapels per chapel period. Chapel happens twice a week and once a month there's a U-Church, which usually is a concert with some fairly famous Christian singer (We've had Gungor, Family Force 5, Phil Whickam, and more!) Students are also required to go to 3 out of the 4 convocation services. (Convocation happens every semester and is basically 4 straight days of chapel at nighttime) However, it isn't too hard to get chapel exempt if you live off campus, are SUPER busy, can get your work to sign the paper saying you work during chapel times, or if chapel is your only lunch period). You need to also be okay with the fact that you'll be required to get a Bible minor. It's only 11 credits and then 3 credits for each major. The last class is supposed to intertwine with your major, so if you have multiple like I do, you'll ave to take more than one of the capstone courses. Cleveland is a very small town. It's growing and it is larger than other towns like Dayton, but it still is small. However, Chattanooga is only about 30 minutes away. You need to be intentional about trying to make friends. Get to know those on your hall and get involved in clubs. If not, you will hate Lee (or really any other school that you attend). It's a lot harder to make friends after your freshman year since everyone has kinda set into their routine and most students start to move off campus or into the on campus apartments (which aren't the best for building community). The first semester of your freshman year is really where you need to put forth the most effort to get involved. Get to know those in your gateway class and those in the cafeteria (cause let's be honest, most of them are probably freshman). Get to know the people in your Old Testament and New Testament classes. 99.9% of them are freshman and don't know anyone else anyway!

    Don't be afraid to ask questions! Also, I would spend some extra time studying for and retaking the ACT/SAT before graduation. There are some amazing scholarships offered for those test scores (a 32 or above gets you a full ride!).
