Lees-McRae On the Road 
On the Road Fall 2019 Dates

We're bringing the mountains to you!

President Lee King and some fellow Bobcats are hitting the road. Join them for a reception in a town near you. Come make new friends as we celebrate the mountains that inspire us and proclaim to the world the calling found in our institutional motto—in the mountains, of the mountains, for the mountains.

Lees-McRae On the Road

Let's honor the things that make us who we are.

 
Each member of the college family embraces their individual purpose, but knows that we can achieve more when we work together. Since its founding, the institution has challenged its people to achieve more than was thought possible.

At Lees-McRae, we don’t just busy our minds, but also our hands. We learn by doing, whether it’s helping to rehabilitate an injured animal at the wildlife center, practicing medical care through high-fidelity simulation and mock-emergency scenarios, or building sets, sewing costumes, and learning lines before the big performance.

Bobcats give back. Through initiatives like Mountain Day of Service, a day on which students, faculty, and staff volunteer in the local community each semester, we demonstrate our dedication to the needs of others.
