• Lee University is nestled in a peaceful community in southeastern Tennessee called Cleveland. Chattanooga is less than thirty minutes away, and is home to the Tennessee Aquarium, Incline Railway, Southern Belle Riverboat, Chattanooga Choo-Choo, and, of course, the famous Rock City atop Lookout Mountain. Cleveland is just 20 minutes from the Ocoee River, site of the 1996 Olympic White Water events. Students can enjoy endless outdoor recreational opportunities. For quick getaways, our campus is also convenient to Knoxville, the Smoky Mountains, and the popular Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg areas.
