Choosing a college is a major decision facing students who plan to continue their education. 

With numerous choices offered to students, Lee University aims to help students make a decision that is best for them. In order to do that, Lee hosts Frontline Preview Days throughout the year. This year, Frontline days will be held on Nov. 2 and 16, Jan. 25, and Feb. 15 and 18.

Frontline days are open to high school juniors and seniors and transfer students, as well as their parents or guardians. The day will begin with light breakfast, mingling with current Lee students, and a welcome address from Phil Cook, Vice President for Enrollment. Students are then dismissed and have the opportunity to sit in on a class of their choice. While students are attending class, parents attend a financial aid session.

“We think it is vital that students sit in on a class during their visit to Lee,” said Director of Admissions Andrea Patrick. “The classroom is where students will spend a large portion of their time during college and it is important for potential students to experience what a class at Lee is like.” 

After class students and parents head to the Deacon Jones Dining Hall. Families will be able to sample Lee University life by enjoying lunch with current Lee students and faculty. Once lunch is over families will embark on a tour of Lee’s campus. This student-led tour will highlight many physical aspects of campus, including a dorm room, along with a look at Lee through the eyes of a current student.

“Giving tours has given me an amazing opportunity to share how wonderful Lee has been to me,” said Shay Slaughter, senior student ambassador. “It is rewarding to help students along in their college decision process, especially when you can see that Lee is a place that will challenge them academically, spiritually and socially.” 

Following the campus tours will be an Academic Carousel where families will be able to meet members of Lee’s faculty from various majors and departments. This is a time for students to explore what Lee academics have to offer and allows them a chance to interact with professors. 

The day’s activities continue with a student panel. During this time, a panel of current Lee students is asked questions about life at Lee and their college experience. Following this will be a performance by the Lee Singers, a mixed choral ensemble of 45 vocalists and nine band members.

Frontline will conclude with a time for students to meet with admissions counselors and ask any questions they might have. This will also be a time when students may audition for the School of Music if they have scheduled an appointment. 

“Frontline is a great opportunity for students to explore what Lee has to offer,” said Ms. Patrick. “Choosing a college is an important decision, and we aim to help students find out if Lee is the right school for them. From sitting in on a class to interacting with current Lee students, the potential students are able to get a great look at what life at Lee is like.”

This event is free, however registration is required. To register for one of the Frontline dates please visit http://web.leeuniversity.edu/info/forms/frontline-registration.asp

Case Handled Like Any Other? - And Response
