Student Involvement

There are endless ways to customize your Lees-McRae experience and create memories that will last a lifetime! Check out some of our semester-long programming.

Gear Up Leadership Development Workshop

These biweekly workshops take the formality out of leadership learning and help students, faculty, and staff explore concepts such as Understanding and Facilitating Change and Aligning Leadership with Your Values.

For The Mountains

Live the motto of Lees-McRae through service experiences. Past service trips have included work with Avery County Habitat for Humanity and Hospitality House.

Adulting 101

Sometimes, being a grown up can be scary! Join us each week for a hands-on workshop lead by a faculty or staff member about a variety of topics including Eating Healthy on a Budget, Basic Car Maintenance, and the Art of Snail Mail.

ProCo Night

Each week our campus’ Programming Committee, a group of fun-loving students, hosts a social event for the campus. These events include Movie Nights, Craft Nights, and more!

Dinner Discussions

One of the most exciting things about being on a college campus is being surrounded with people with different passions and life experiences. Sit down for a free dinner with a faculty, staff, or community member to explore a special topic.

Greek Council

Our three local fraternities and sororities meet to collaborate on campus wide initiatives and philanthropy events. Students interested in joining Delta Omicron Theta, Delta Zeta Nu, or Beta Omega Kappa, should contact the Campus Life Office.

Student Government Association

The Student Government Association is the voice of the student body on campus. Student Government hosts campus forums, meetings, and advocates for positive change on campus.

Clubs and Organizations

Lees-McRae Student Life has nearly 20 clubs and organizations ranging from the Nerd Club to the Pre-Veterinary Club. Want to start your own organization? Just find five other interested students!
