Lee Day 2018 Begins Friday



Lee University’s annual Lee Day will begin this Friday, April 6. Students, staff, and faculty have anxiously been awaiting this 33 hours that will allow prospective Lee families to experience the university in a variety of ways.

Prospective students will have the chance to sit in on classes, dine with Lee students and faculty, register for fall courses, win scholarships, and experience every aspect of campus life.

“For many years, Lee Day has been the most successful recruitment event jam packed with information, fun, and excitement on the Lee University campus, and we expect that to be case again this weekend,” said Phil Cook, vice president for enrollment.

Lee Day registration begins at 9 a.m. on Friday and 7 a.m. on Saturday. Campus tours, including dormitories, will be available (following registration) on both days.

Academic departments will be on display across campus providing guests an opportunity to speak with faculty and students regarding specific programs. On Friday at 4 p.m., “Major Discovery” will also take place to help prospective Lee students choose an area of study.

Lee U Spotlight, a Lee Day favorite, will take place Friday evening at 5. This event showcases the best of Lee music, videos, alumni, and athletics.

Events continue Friday evening with a block party featuring music, food, and fun for the whole family at 6:30. Following this, guests may attend the Lee Theatre production of “Cyrano” at 7:30 in Dixon Center or the Passion Concert at 8 in the Walker Arena.

“We are excited to welcome Passion for a worship event that will be the perfect conclusion to Friday’s activities and will show firsthand why Lee continues to be one of the leading Christ-centered liberal arts university in the country,” said Cook.

An entertaining student-produced sketch that takes a look at everyday campus life, “Life at Lee,” will take place Saturday at 2:30 p.m. in the Conn Center. Seating is limited, so guests will want to arrive early.

From events geared to experience campus life, view academic and extracurricular displays, and attend question and answer panels to information sessions and athletic events, Lee Day is designed to make sure guests leave with all questions answered and new students prepared for fall.

“There is not a better time to experience the Lee family than during Lee Day,” said Danny Murray, Lee Day Steering Committee.

The weekend will conclude with a campus wide cookout at 4 p.m. on Saturday, followed by a worship rally where scholarship drawings will take place. The rally will feature Lee President Paul Conn, Voices of Lee, and Lee’s Worship band.

While guests may choose to participate in the whole weekend or just certain events, everyone is encouraged to register beforehand. To see the full schedule, get more information, or to register, visit Lee Day.
