‘Top Adventure College’ competition enters round three: Lees-McRae vs. Maryville College

March 27, 2017

Lees-McRae will now go head-to-head against Tennessee-based school, Maryville College, after defeating Brevard College by nearly 900 votes in the Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine’s Top Adventure College competition.

Beginning today, the third round will extend until 9 a.m. on Monday, April 3 and will determine who enters the semi-final round for top “small school.”

The final championship will involve the top “small school”, colleges with less than 5,000 undergraduates, and top “big school”, colleges with more than 5,000 undergraduates, battling for the title of “Top Adventure College.” That round will take place Monday, April 10 until Monday April 17.

Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine initiated the competition five years ago to highlight those colleges and universities with a “commitment to outdoor and environmental initiatives, quality of outdoor athletes and programs and opportunities for adventure,” according to the Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine website.

Votes can be submitted once per device every 24 hours.
