What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
letourneau has a top notch engineering program that teaches students to learn and grow in every aspect of the classroom. the professors push and drive their students to work hard while still encouraging them and reasonably listening to the requests and needs of the students. the campus provides a large enough area to find quiet areas and a small enough community to build meaningful relationships with hall mates, classmates, faculty, and staff.
kelsie from collinsville, il
LeTourneau University is a very professional school. They make you work hard, lean a lot and have fun doing it. It is very hands on and the teachers go the extra mile to make sure you succeed at what you are doing in the LeTourneau Community and beyond.
Rebecca from Crestwood, KY
LeTourneau University is more than just a college, it's a way of life. LeTourneau contains a plethora of amazing students and faculty all striving to better themselves and their community for Christ.
Daniel from Bellevue, NE
A great school, better than what I thought. I am glad to say that I'm a student, very challenging academically and spiritually. I would not choose to go to another university.
Caitlin
What makes LeTourneau such an incredible university is the people. The students, professors, resident directors, and even the cafeteria workers all care about you and help you to succeed. There is a unique kind of Christian love and support that permeates the entire campus.
