From now until Monday, April 1, Lees-McRae College will go head-to-head against Western Carolina University in the final round of Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine’s annual “Top Adventure College” tournament.

In a tournament that began on Feb. 25, Lees-McRae has taken the win each week in a 32-school, bracket-style competition. Now, Lees-McRae has only one more week remaining in the competition to prove its outdoor programming is some of the best in the nation.

Last year, Lees-McRae made history and became the first college with an undergraduate enrollment fewer than 5,000 students to claim the title of “Top Adventure College.”
