News from Student Development

There are a host of activities going on in the spring semester so your student can experience all Lees-McRae has to offer. Let's encourage students to step outside of their comfort zone and try something new!

Bobcat Music Night is a new series for students to enjoy and participate in during the months of January and February. This is an opportunity for students to share their talent in a “coffee house” type setting.

Intramurals are a fun way to meet new people and get exercise while having a blast. Indoor soccer registration began on Wednesday, January 16.

Monday nights are reserved for outdoor programming. Students can enjoy the climbing wall and other things like a campfire.

Pardon Our Progress

Renovations will begin in the Bowman Science Lab this semester. Plans are to renovate a former physics lab into a health science virtual lab.

Plans for constructing a new scene shop for Performing Arts are still underway. The scene shop will be a two-story structure reserved for set design and prop storage. Groundbreaking is slated for this summer.

Renovations have already begun to an old stone cottage on campus. The home is being renovated to create the Robb Center for Career Exploration. Career services will move out of the Carson Library and into the renovated facility as soon as renovations are complete.

The private dining room inside MacDonald Dining Hall (formerly Heritage Dining Room) has been renovated and is now called Miller Commons. This beautiful space will be used for special events hosted by students, faculty, and staff. The grand opening of Miller Commons is slated for the College’s Board of Trustees dinner on January 24.
