Vote for Lees-McRae in the Top Adventure College Tournament

We all know that Lees-McRae is an outdoor enthusiasts' dream, and now it's time to prove it! Beginning Monday, April 15 Blue Ridge Outdoors will begin a Top Adventure College Tournament and we're in the running.

This contest will put Lees-McRae up against other colleges and universities in a head-to-head 32-school bracket. Large Division I schools will battle one side of the bracket while we will battle against smaller schools on the other side. At the end of the contest, both division winners will compete for Top Adventure College glory.

How can we win, you ask? Beginning April 15, go to and vote for Lees-McRae!

Mark your calendars for the voting schedule!
Round of 32: April 15 - 28
Sweet 16: April 29 - May 12
Elite 8: May 13 - 19
Final Four: May 20 - 26
Championship: May 27 - June 3

According to Blue Ridge Outdoors, "The initial 32 colleges and universities were selected for their outdoor clubs and curricula, their commitment to outdoor and environmental initiatives, the quality of their outdoor athletes and programs, and their opportunities for adventure."
