The professors at Lees-McRae are generally easy to talk to and willing to help you if you're struggling with something. Depending on what sorts of classes you take, the course load varies, but it's not ridiculous by any means.

The dean does not allow students to live off campus with out an reason.

We get several feet of snow in Banner Elk every year. It rains constantly during the summer but it is nice that it never gets hot in this area. Regardless, this area is so scenic that it doesn't even matter

I'm so worried about not finding a job. At times, it keeps me up at night.

It sucks that no one is allowed to live off campus so all the best housing is taken by upperclassmen but the dorms aren't that bad.

Health & Safety:
BannerElk as a town i a generally safe place but security is kind of a joke around here. Lacrosse players steal the security trucks all the time.

Banner Elk, NC is very small but its history over theyear make it very interesting. I enjoy going on a hike up the mountain or going to Wildcat Lake. Its not too far from App State in Boone.

In my opinion, LMC is not up to date with all the modern day renovations that a lot of other chools have to offer. Their bathrooms are not the cleanest but the beautiful campus makes up for some of that. I love the fact that LMC Faculty are so very friendly and informative.

The drug scene at Lees-McRae College depends on the people that you associate yourself with. The new wave is popping pills. Marijuana will always be around. Alcohol is the main activity that I believe most students at LMC participate in.

We need more money to pay for sports expenses such as travel fees and equipment. The coaching staff should not be altered once the sport season has started.

The food choices are not the best and I often go elsewhere for meals when I can afford it. I wish there were more healthy choices with more fresh and organic foods available.
College Sophomore 2012-11-30T16:49:56Z
Many students drink alcohol and smoke marijuana which I personally do not participate in. I wish there were more consequences and surveillance for these types of activities.

I am considered an off campus student and I feel as if the financial aid department does not care about my financial struggles as they do the student on campus. When I try to contact them I get no returned e-mails or phone calls.

Im not sure i dont hear a lot staying off campus unless they live close

Guys & Girls:
I would say that the guy and girls are averge. Sometimes there are a few people that looks and dress great but their personilty mess it up. However, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". In my school you will see a mix of everything; city, country, black, white, etc.

I have always lived on campus since my freshman year and I would say that we as student pay to much money for nothing. I am not saying that where we live is suppose to be five stars but if people are getting sick from mold growing then something have to give. Either we pay less or fix the mold problem.

I came to Lees- Mcrae to be able to get that one on one student- teacher relationship and I feel like my professors are always making me that way. I can go to my professors to discuss about my grade to my future.

I really do love my major at Lees- McRae Collegebut I would love it even better if we had more internship opportunities or job opportunities once we leave. The workload and curriculum is fairly easy to me but I know when I need help the teachers are always there willing to help.

Great Bike Team – Cyclists are fantastic, others are good. Lacrosse: bad attitudes.

IT Capabilities – Mac lab is less accessible, but library PCs are generally usable, if not the most up to date

Small Town. Banner Elk is a small town, the whole one stoplight deal. But it's great. Most of the people are a retired community so it's nice and peaceful. You rarely hear any sirens of any sort, except for the fire department because they are right across the street. There's a dog park for those who have dogs on campus to go hang out. A nice size park if you want to run. A duck pond. And the scenery of living in the mountains is beautiful. It's small so if you want to out and hit the streets, you either have to drive 20 minutes to boone, or drive 45 to Johnson City.

Not Much Going on. There isn't much going on with the greek life, they have fund raisers and meetings but it's not like those stereotypical ones where they are partying everyday and stuff. You know most of the sorority and fraternity people and they aren't much different. You are not put on a pedestal for being in one. You're just in one.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
