What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the school, the setting of the school is the most beautiful in the east part of the united states I believe. The adventures around the school make is unique. Plenty of mountains and ski slopes, trails, hiking spots, Lees-McRae is just an outdoor adventure school. The on-campus living buildings could use moderation, they are very out-dated. The classrooms are starting to become nicer, and the academics is great but could use some work. The professors are always there to help you and push you to your best, but they lack on organizational skills.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I adore this school and everything it has to offer in smack dab middle of the mountains. such a nice place with amazing people and a great view. taking my first tour of the school, I was overcome with the feeling over comfort and contentment. I recommend this school to students looking for an intimate and beautiful school to grow up in, to forge relationships and eventually live here at some point if that's meant for the future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lees-McRae is a small but gorgeous school nestled in between two mountains which allow students to constantly be exposed to adventure whether that be going on a long hike or snowboarding and tubing down the side of a snowy mountain. The mountains called my name and I answered and have not regretted it so far. The faculty is very kind and very approachable which makes obtaining help much easier. Some of the facilities could use some attention but I believe they shouldn't be in tip top shape due to the age of the school but should still be monitored. Access to plenty of outdoor activities has been the main reason why I rated this college so high.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is that its a nice campus and a great school but they could work on updating the dorm buildings and having a kitchen in them. They could also work on getting air conditioning into the dorm rooms because it can get really hot during the warm seasons.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was a nice place to live and the scenery was beautiful, but it was really expensive. Some students acted like they were in high school and liked to start drama, and there were lots of teachers who were really nice but some treated you like you were a kid and like you were stupid.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I very much enjoy going to Lees-McRae College because it is located in such a nice location with plenty of outdoorsy activities to partake in. It is very big into sports because 90% of its students are athletes. I have made great memories and friends there for my first year.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy my program (Wildlife Biology with a concentration in Wildlife Rehabilitation) but it's got some issues. We generally don't have issues on campus but I know of a sexual assault that wasn't reported and wasn't handled correctly. We have two main dinning options that are decent but nothing over the top. The school has plenty of money but neglects lots of areas. The staff here is very nice and wonderful but those in more administrative positions seem to care more about the schools reputation (which I can understand why but don't believe is right) than some of the student cases. It is a friendly school overall and I'm glad I decided to go here but like I said before it has problems.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of LMC is that it is what you would expect from a small, rural, private school. The class sizes are great, teachers offer a very personal experience and there are lots of extracurricular opportunities for students. With private though comes a fair share of rude, or snobbish people- although compared to other private schools we have a fairly friendly atmosphere. LMC is nearly completely pet friendly, which is a great bonus if you are an animal lover and we have a wide variety of majors and minors for nearly every person. It is honestly not much different than high school due to the small size, overall I enjoy it here even through the occasional annoying rift.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lee's-McRae was my first choice in colleges, it has beautiful scenery, small class sizes, AND I can bring my pet. If you come here for art there's so much inspiration, and if your comming here for wildlife there is plenty of it. The dorms are beautiful brick buildings and so are the class rooms. Just remember bring a sweater!
