A Top-Tier, Christ-Centered Experience
Welcome to Lee University, in scenic southeast Tennessee, where the Tennessee River carves through the Appalachian foothills. We offer well over 150 programs of study from associates to doctoral degrees, but our original focus – and still our mission more than a century later – is to create a safe but challenging environment in which our students can develop and prepare for a complex and demanding world.
We have a phrase around Lee, Expect Something Great. We think the college experience should be much more than just academic excellence. At Lee, we expect our students to experience transformational relationships with faculty, with other students, in campus life, and as they move into their calling.
In high school, Joshua Rice attended Lee’s music camp and later observed some digital media classes while on campus. “I’d already decided I wanted to attend Lee at that point, but that sealed the deal.” Joshua now majors in digital media with an emphasis on studio production. He is involved in Lee’s music and worship club and serves as a lab instructor in a camera class. Outside of Lee, Joshua likes to help with the digital media at his church. He plans to remain in the Chattanooga area after graduation and work at a local news station but is also considering studying meteorology.
