    Hello! My name is Ashley Wilson, and I am the Admissions Counselor for Bradley and Hamilton County. 

    I graduated from Lee University in December 2017 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and a minor in Social Work. Growing up in a small town near Cleveland, it was aways a dream to attend Lee University. I quickly found community here by having the privilege of being a part of the Lee University Singers and serving as a freshman peer leader for incoming students. During my time in the Lee Singers, I was given the opportunity to travel across the United States as well as cross culturally. Some highlights from my time at Lee were traveling to Italy in Spring 2015 and South Africa in Spring 2017 with the Lee Singers. These opportunities provided ways for me to grow both spiritually and relationally.

    Overall, Lee allowed me to develop and strengthen my faith, create lasting friendships and be challenged academically. Lee offers a diverse atmosphere with a place for everyone, and it would be my pleasure to assist you during this time of decisions and transition to find your own story. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!

    I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in advertising, with a public relations minor, from Lee in May of 2015.

I was also an intern with Southside Creative Group, a local marketing agency, and participated in the National Student Advertising Campaign competitions for two consecutive years. Though Lee’s Cross-Cultural program I was able to travel with other communication students to the beautiful country of Italy and a few of the Greek islands. While studying abroad, we broadened our international marketing spectrum by observing their communication industry and experiencing their culture. While working full time in the Admissions Office, I am also pursuing my Master’s in Business Administration. The faculty and student body at Lee University have served as agents for my abilities and gifts, and in doing so, have promoted my well-being undoubtedly. I’ll forever be grateful for all the opportunities and experiences that Lee University gave me!

    Lee University was the perfect fit for me because of the many opportunities for spiritual growth and academic growth. I absolutely loved my time as a Lee student – the professors who challenged me and believed in my abilities, the lifelong friendships I gained, and the beautiful campus nestled in the Tennessee mountains all added to this great experience I had as a student. As a student, I not only grew so much academically, but I also learned more about others, myself, and my relationship with The Lord. I recognize that looking for your perfect fit in a college can be overwhelming and tricky at times, but I hope I can make the process easier. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about Lee University, I am here to help you!

    I am absolutely thrilled you are considering attending Lee University. I whole-heartedly believe this university is bound together by a welcoming community, passionate students, faculty and staff, and most importantly, Jesus Christ.

    Hey! My name is Austin Morris, and I am the Southeast Admissions Counselor; which serves prospective students from Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi. I am excited to answer any questions you may have and help you through this amazing transition! 

    I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Studies with a minor in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) in May 2017. As a student, I was a four-year player for the Men’s Rugby team, one of the many clubs Lee has to offer. I served with the Residential Life team as a Resident Assistant for Bowdle Hall and was also involved in Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

    One of my favorite things about Lee is the Global Perspectives Program. As an Intercultural Studies major, I was able to spend the entire summer of 2016 in Cota, Colombia. While being fully immersed in their culture; I was welcomed into a host-family’s home, made lasting friendships, experienced life in the church, and got to teach the English language. Meeting people from all over the world is an incredible opportunity that Lee offer. Not only through traveling abroad, but you can also have that on campus by meeting students from other countries, states, and towns.

    Lee was an amazing fit for me because I was so quickly able to find a place where I could belong, and I think you can find that here at Lee as well. I’ve made friendships at Lee that I know I will keep for my whole life, and that’s not something that’s exclusive to just my Lee story. Lee is an incredible, diverse place where you can grow in so many ways. I grew a lot during my time as a student and I would love to help you get here, so you can experience all Lee has to offer you! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have -- I would love to help you start your own Lee story!

    Hello! My name is Kendrick Davis, and I am the Admissions Counselor for East Tennessee. I am so excited about your interest in Lee University and I hope to help in any way I can. 

    I graduated from Lee in May of 2018 with a degree in Sociology, after transferring to Lee from Kalamazoo Valley Community College in the fall of 2015. Immediately upon coming to campus I felt welcomed into the Lee Family. As a student at Lee, I was a part of the Greek community through my membership in Tau Kappa Omega. Through this I experienced a variety of service projects, helped organize on-campus events, and participated in intramural sports. I also had the chance to work a few on-campus jobs; first working for Lee University Physical Plant and then the Office of the President. As a part of Lee’s Cross-Cultural Experience, I also had the chance to spend Christmas in Hawaii with one of my favorite Sociology professors and his family.

    Lee University has been a tremendous blessing in my life, God has used Lee to open doors for me that I never thought possible. Professors, fellow students, and co-workers have all become family. This family was not just a social benefit, but also had a positive impact on my performance in the classroom. Being able to have open, direct discussions with professors allowed for academic success that I had never experienced before. I believe that Lee can be a great fit for anyone who wants it to be. If there is anything I can do to help you in your journey, please let me know!

    Hello! I am Rachel Proctor, and I am the Admissions Counselor for Middle and West Tennessee, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming region.  

    I'm originally from Aiken, South Carolina, and dreamed about coming to Lee since I was very young, but I was afraid it would always be just a dream for me rather than a reality. At the beginning of my senior year of high school, I toured and visited what seemed like hundreds of colleges. None of them felt like home to me. After visiting Lee's campus the summer after I graduated high school, I knew it was what the Lord had for me. Thanks to the Admissions Office and Lee's traveling drama team, Kingdom Players, my dream became a reality that following fall. During my time at Lee, I was involved in Kingdom Players, held leadership roles in two Greek service clubs, and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration. I also had the opportunity to travel abroad to Cambodia which opened the door for me to serve as a missionary there after I graduated. I'm more than excited that the Lord has led me back to Lee and blessed me with the opportunity to serve here. Lee has felt like home to me since day one, and I love getting to play a part in prospective students finding their future home here as well.

    Deciding what college to attend can be an exciting yet extremely daunting task. Talking with the Admissions Office and visiting campus can help calm any worries or concerns you may have. If Lee is on your radar, I'd love to talk with you and show you all that our beautiful university has to offer! Please feel free to contact me with anything you may need. I can't wait to talk with you!
