    One-fourth of the student population at Lee University is non-traditional, meaning they are above 25, married and/or parents. Students at Lee who are going to school and raising a family are offered events beneficial to themselves, their spouses and their children. To make reservations for child care during U-Church, please contact the ELC at least two weeks in advance or 423.614.8409.
