Shayli Daves is a sophomore biology major from Ooltewah, Tennessee. She is a member of Phi Eta Sigma, the iMASS Program, and AED, a national health preprofessional honor society, through which she volunteers at the Samaritan Clinic. She always wanted to go to a private Christian university where she could actively engage with peers and professors, and she knew after visiting Lee’s campus that it was the place for her. “The best part of my Lee experience can be summed up by one word: relationships. Your field of study is the primary reason for college, but the people along the way make the journey more memorable. I have genuine friends and incredible relationships with my professors that have far exceeded what I would have ever expected, even going to their houses for cookouts or lake days! At Lee, you grow together with peers, faculty, and most importantly in your relationship with God.”
