Lees-McRae is a small diverse college. I have plently of one on one time with my professors, which means when it comes time for grad school I have become close enought to my professors that I will be able to get a good letter of recomendation.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Having gone to a large university right out of high school then dropping out as a senior, then at age 35 deciding to go back to school and go to a small college, I have seen both sides of the coin. People do not appreciate what is handed to them. Students in college really do not understand the full effect of the college experience if they are not the ones paying for it - they take it for granted. As far as choosing a college, find one that is the right size for you and also in the right area. If you like to party, do not go to a little out of the way mountain college. Most students right out of high school do not know what they want to do with their life so I suggest going to a community college to get their associates, decide on what they want to be when they grow up, then find a college or university that offers what they want. Once you get to college the student must learn time managment skills. They need to learn how to juggle classes, homework, social life and usually a job. Set priorities, but have fun.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That getting an education was going to ruin my marriage. I would have divorced him first and not gone through the fights and hard times during the semester and exams.

It is a presbyterian founded college that stresses racial, religious, sexual and personal diversity. They don't ram things down your throat. They ecourage you to explore instead. I like our new motto "Dream, Dare, Achieve."

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure that the college is you. Students you're the ones who are going to spend 4 to 5 years of your life here, make sure you enjoy them. But also remember why you're there. Partying is great! So go party, but there is currently no major in it as far as I know. Parents let them choose for them. You may not like the school very much, but you're not going there. Make sure its safe and a good learning environment for your kid, but make sure they really like it. Remember Tuition, Room, Board, Books, etc. are expensive (mine cost us about $30000 total) and an you kid dropping out because they don't like it is too! And advice to all, ASK QUESTIONS! You don't know unless you ask, unless you read it in the Brochure. Ask Admissions, ask Finiancial Aid, ask Professors, ASK STUDENTS!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

We're located near several ski resorts, so everything around there is fairly expensive. There aren't many activities to do off-campus. You have to go to Boone or Johnson City Tenneseee. Also some of the dorms could use some renevation, particularly the ones for upperclassman males.
