Lee Day 2018 to Take Place in April

Spring is in the air, which means Lee Day 2018 is not far off. Beginning Friday, April 6, prospective Lee University students and their families will have the opportunity to experience Lee in just 33 hours. This highly anticipated two days is packed with activities for everyone.

“This is absolutely the best time to visit our campus,” said Danny Murray, Lee Day committee chairman.

Throughout the weekend, guests will have the opportunity to tour the campus, including residence halls, and prospective students will be able to sit in on a variety of classes.

Lee Day Campus Tours

An academic showcase with faculty and students from each department will take place to answer any questions prospective Lee families may have. Students already accepted into Lee for fall 2018 will be able to meet with academic advisors and build their schedule for the upcoming semester.

A Lee Day favorite, LeeU Spotlight, will take place Friday afternoon, where the best of Lee music, videos, alumni, and athletics will be highlighted. Guests can also catch “Music in the Air,” featuring performances by a variety of Lee’s ensembles.

Also on Friday, Lee Theatre will hold a program info session and then present “Cyrano,” featuring “sword fighting, love, and comedy,” according to play director Dan Buck.

“Students who are interested in auditioning, working back stage, or taking theatre classes of any kind will benefit from this quick introduction to Lee Theatre faculty and facilities,” said Buck. “We love meeting students who love theatre and those who are just a little curious.”

A block party will take place on Friday evening with lots of family fun, food, and music with Lee students.

Friday’s festivities will conclude with the annual Lee Day U-Church concert, featuring Passion Worship. Passion has seen worship leaders such as Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, David Crowder, and Christy Nockels unite over the years, writing, recording, and leading arenas in worship. Songs from Passion have become some of the most recognizable anthems of this generation, such as “How Great Is Our God,” “God Of This City,” “One Thing Remains,” and “Even So Come.”

LeeU Ready

Opportunities to experience campus life will continue on Saturday, beginning with an array of Lee University clubs and organizations on display for visitors to peruse.

Students and their families will also get a taste of the university’s athletics and school spirit with lacrosse, baseball, softball, and tennis games occurring throughout the weekend. Prospective students hoping to join the athletics program will get a chance to attend “Meet the Coaches” on Saturday and speak with athletic faculty and coaches.

A Lee Day favorite, “Life at Lee,” will take place Saturday afternoon, providing guests an opportunity to witness Lee campus comradery. Following “Life at Lee,” there will be a cookout in Alumni Park for all to enjoy.

A luncheon for high school seniors will take place on Saturday, which will qualify them for the drawing of eight scholarships. There will also be special luncheons for high school sophomores and juniors, as well as transfer students.

Lee Day will conclude Saturday afternoon with a worship rally featuring Lee President Paul Conn, the Lee University Worship Band, and Voices of Lee. The scholarship drawing will take place following the worship rally.

“Lee Day is the largest recruitment event of the year, and we are excited to welcome hundreds of students and families to our campus,” said Phil Cook, vice president for enrollment. “For many years, Lee Day has been the primary reason students decide to enroll at Lee, and we expect this year to be no different.”

Registration begins at 9 a.m. on Friday and 7 a.m. on Saturday.
