    Summer Time At Lee

    Current Lee students can take advantage of summer classes being offered throughout the university in four-week sessions. Session III runs July 6-30 and will include classes like “History of Christianity,” “Microeconomics,” “Young Adult Literature,” “Business Finance,” “Elementary New Testament Greek,” “Survey of Western Civilization I,” and “Earth and Space Science.” Registration for Session III takes place July 6-9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Summer classes offer a focused schedule, individualized attention in courses, discounted dorm rates, opportunities to catch up or get ahead on needed classes, and a calendar full of fun, free activities. These include trips to baseball games, movie nights, concerts, bowling, and cookouts.

    Students not in classes still have good reason to be around Lee during the summer, whether it is to work on campus, work out in the gym, or serve the community. The DeVos Rec Center offers free fitness classes to all Lee students and employees ranging from “Power Step” to “Boot Camp” to “Power Yoga.” There are also plenty of service activities for students to faithfully serve the community including Crossover food distribution program, The Caring Place, Second Harvest Thrift Store, and opportunities with local churches like Cross Pointe and Westmore.

    Over 300 Lee students and faculty will participate in 20 Global Perspectives trips this summer, visiting more than 17 countries in addition to traveling throughout New England and Alaska. Campus is buzzing with all the activity from more than 20 summer camps that various departments at Lee offer to the community. Elementary age through high school students can check out baseball, basketball, golf, soccer, softball, music, theater, art, computer, archaeology, science, math, and English language camps.

    Summer Honors, a two-week program in June for high school juniors and seniors, lets students explore the academic and social opportunities of college life while earning six hours of class credit. SH also offers a wide variety of social activities to participants: bowling, movies, 80s Night, Greek Olympics, whitewater rafting on the Ocoee, and trips to Chattanooga and Knoxville.

    Just because it’s easier to find parking and there are less people walking in front of you while you are trying to drive down Parker Street doesn’t mean that life at Lee stops during the summer—opportunities are always available to learn, make friends, travel, and serve.
