Lees-McRae establishes community membership for use of facilities

Lees-McRae College is pleased to be able to share its facilities with members of the community. In order to offset depreciation of equipment and facilities, the College has devised a community membership fee.

Effective immediately community members are required to complete a facility usage form and payment of $100 membership fee. This is a yearly fee. All paying members will receive an official college photo ID.

This ID will allow community members to access the Broyhill Fitness Center, Arthur Student Recreation Complex, Rhea Lyons Swimming Pool, James H. Carson Library, tennis courts and any exercise class offered by the College. (Additional fees may be required for certain classes.)

Each individual's ID should be on his or her person while using College facilities.

The facility use form and payment can be completed with Justin Kitts, director of campus life and recreation, in the Cannon Student Center or the Arthur Student Recreation Complex.

Paying members are allowed one guest per day at the rate of $5 for each guest pass. Guest passes may be used each day during regular facility hours.

To obtain a guest pass, the sponsor must present his or her current college ID. Guests must present a valid photo ID (i.e. driver's license). The sponsor will be held accountable for the behavior of their guest.
