Beginning Friday, April 8, Lee University will host its annual Lee Day, 34 hours of excitement geared toward prospective students, parents and youth leaders.
“For many years, Lee Day has been the reason students choose to enroll at Lee and this year will be no exception,” said Vice President for Enrollment Phil Cook. “We will welcome hundreds of students and their families to campus for an informational and inspiring two days of activity.”
Lee Day events kick off at 11 a.m. Friday with registration and opportunities for prospective students to observe featured classes until 2 p.m. Campus tours and academic displays will also commence at this time, giving guests a chance to meet faculty and students in the departments of their interest.
At 12:30 p.m., early class selection will begin. Incoming freshmen will have the opportunity to schedule an appointment to choose their class schedules for the fall 2016 semester.
That afternoon, prospective students who are undecided about their major will be able to hear current students and faculty talk about options during “Major Discovery” at 2 p.m. Guests will then be able to hear the various Lee ensembles perform during “Music in the Air” at 3 p.m. Info sessions regarding Lee Theatre and Summer Honors, along with men’s and women’s tennis matches, will also occur that afternoon between 2:30 and 4 p.m.
A gigantic block party with food, fun and Lee students will kick off Friday at 5 p.m. At 6:30, the Worship Rally featuring Lee President Dr. Paul Conn, The Voices of Lee, and Lee’s Chapel Band will take place, followed by “Lee U Spotlight,” an opportunity to view highlights of Lee music, award-winning videos, and alumni stories.

The night ends at 9:30 p.m. with “Movie Under the Stars” on the Lee Soccer Field.
Saturday morning brings a new day of opportunities for early class selection and campus tours. Beginning at 8 a.m., academic displays will be set up in the various departments across campus. By 9:30 a.m., displays will be set up where prospective students can find out which clubs and organizations they can potentially join.
