Lee University is a private Christian university with more than 5,000 students and 158 programs of study.
For over 100 years, Lee has sought to provide an excellent education to students while keeping Christ at the core of the entire student experience.
Lee is located in Southeast Tennessee, surrounded by beautiful views of the Smoky Mountains and offering students access to hiking, camping, and exploring in the Ocoee River region. Chattanooga is just 30 miles from campus, with an endless amount of riverfront restaurants, concerts, and downtown attractions.
The foundational purpose of all of Lee’s educational programs is to develop students’ knowledge, understanding, and skills to prepare them for responsible Christian living in a complex world. Within each of its six colleges and schools, Lee’s academic programs challenge, engage, and fully prepare students for their futures. Our top-notch faculty and staff go above and beyond not only to help students succeed academically but to build meaningful relationships with them.
Students at Lee have access to countless social, spiritual, and academic opportunities. There are over 100 student clubs and organizations, including music ensembles, honor societies, Greek letter organizations, recreational clubs, and service groups. Another core part of the student experience is chapel, which takes place twice a week on campus. Residence halls also host small weekly groups where students can find community and encouragement.
Lee University requires all students to complete a study abroad trip in which they earn course credit toward their degree. These trips allow students to engage with other cultures and develop a deeper understanding of the global world outside of the classroom.
